Guests at West Edmonton Hotel Get a Little Help With Holiday Shopping

Edmonton Marriott at River Cree Resort Offers Holiday Rates and Location Near Major Mall

ENOCH, AB--(Marketwired - Sep 27, 2013) - For some, the holidays are a time to relax with friends and family. For others, the festive season means leisurely days spent exploring the mall, searching for the perfect gifts. Whether in town to visit family or to do some holiday shopping, the Edmonton Marriott at River Cree Resort offers a great deal that's sure to please everyone.

Now through January 26, 2014, this West Edmonton hotel is offering a special holiday rate of only $149 a night. Guests will enjoy accommodation in a deluxe guest room, featuring floor-to-ceiling windows and a flat-screen TV, plus a $5 CAD voucher to the River Cree Casino, where they can try their luck on 50 table games and more than 1,000 slot machines.

Saving money on a room at this Edmonton hotel (and perhaps winning some at the casino, too), means there's more to put toward gifts. At the West Edmonton Mall, just 5 minutes away, shopping can be a full-day affair, with more than 800 stores spread across 5.3 million square feet (the size of a small city). The mall, inspired by the traditional urban bazaars of Persia, combines shopping and entertainment with more than 100 dining venues and attractions including an amusement park, waterpark, bowling alley, aquarium, ice-skating rink, mini golf and a multi-level ropes course.

While there are plenty of things to do at the mall, minutes from this four-star Edmonton hotel, shopping is still the main event. Visitors will find all of their favorites, plus exclusive shops including Anthropologie, G-Star Raw, Hollister, Lacoste, Scotch & Soda, Tommy Bahama and Urban Outfitters. Themed areas including Bourbon Street, Chinatown and Europa Boulevard bring together related shopping, dining and entertainment, offering a mini-escape within the mall.
