Alberta hotel sequence. More scenes to be added

Edmonton's One Thornton Court
Pictured above, along with the famous Chateau Lake Louise and Waterton Lakes Lodge, is a scene of Edmonton's North Saskatchewan River Valley, site of One Thornton Court the first hotel on our list. It is located next to the"Hotel Macdonald," where we once had an office.

Jerry W. Bird"This spring following our participation at the Yellowhead Trans Canada Highway Association's 56th Annual Convention in Sherwood Park on the heels of a hectic month overseas, we needed some quiet time for rest and relaxation in Edmonton. A friend recommended Thornton Court, and it was love at first sight. The spacious guest room off the main lobby and the wide open layout of dining area and patio won my heart immediately. So did the view (see river valley scene in above photo sequence)The room itself was another wonderful surprise and so was the reasonable price. True value in these days when that principle is not always the norm. We enjoyed the hotel so much, I suggested that we stay an extra two days." Jerry W. Bird, Editor

Here's what the listing says, and every word is true. "An inspired conversion of Edmonton's landmark federal building named in honor of Sir Henry Thornton, president of Canadian National Railway. With commanding views of the river valley, centrally located in downtown Edmonton's arts and entertainment district. Casual Riverside Luxury. Bringing you the most modern of conveniences. Unique in design, unparalleled in service."
