The 346-key JW Marriott Edmonton ICE District, Marriott’s 250th property in Canada, is now open.

Located in the heart of the city’s new mixed-use and entertainment district, it is the third JW Marriott property in Canada.

“We are thrilled to be opening our 250th hotel in Canada as well as bringing our iconic JW brand to the city of Edmonton,” said Don Cleary, president of Marriott International’s Canadian operation. “Our 250th property underscores the importance of luxury to this market, and the tremendous opportunity for growth in Canada. Guests of the new JW Marriott Edmonton ICE District hotel can expect to be treated to uplifting experiences that showcase the local price and warm spirit of Edmonton.”

The hotel is housed on the first 22 floors of a 54-storey building connected to Rogers Place Arena, a multi-use arena that is home to the Edmonton Oilers hockey team. Two hundred and sixty-two condominiums—The Legends Private Residences—are located on floors 23 to 54 of the tower.

The property’s accommodation offerings include 322 rooms (standard, deluxe and executive-level) and 24 suites (deluxe, vice-presidential, presidential). All rooms feature warm, luxurious, modern decor; high-tech connectivity; and a marble bathroom.

The hotel also offers 22,000 square feet of meeting and conference space, including Edmonton’s largest event ballroom, featuring 9,000 square feet of space with ample natural lighting and 22-foot ceilings.

F&B at the hotel is being handled by nationally acclaimed restaurateur Oliver & Bonacini Hospitality. The property features four restaurants and bars:

  • Braven, a five-star dining experience offering dry-aged steaks, quality chops and seafood helmed by Executive Chef Jeremy Korten;
  • Kindred Food + Drink, an accessible all-day eatery focusing on locally-sourced, seasonal fare overseen by Chef de Cuisine Jason Greene;
  • Alchemy, a destination cocktail bar with a spectacular patio overlooking the ICE District;
  • and Lobby Bar, a hub for business and social gatherings, featuring a selection of signature and classic cocktails.

In addition, the hotel is home to a comprehensive wellness facility, including Spa by JW, Edmonton’s only full-service luxury hotel spa, and Archetype, a state-of-the-art fitness club led by Edmontonian Simon Bennett.
