For a truly unique family vacation, you have to check out the Fantasyland Hotel themed suites in Edmonton, Alberta! My son (5 years old) and I were there last week and stayed in the newly renovated Igloo Room (King) and we loved it! Not only is it unique but it’s super comfortable too. Where else can you sleep in an igloo and enjoy a jacuzzi bath in the glaciers? There are several themed rooms and luxury suites in the hotel – I’ll show you the Truck Room, Western Room and Sports Room in a moment. Here I’ll give you a sneak peek at the Igloo King Room and what you can expect when staying at the Fantasyland Hotel.
West Edmonton Mall:
The Fantasyland Hotel is located in the West Edmonton Mall in Edmonton, Alberta (Canada). If you haven’t heard of the West Edmonton Mall before, you’re truly missing out on an awesome family destination! The mall has a huge waterpark with waterslides, a wave pool and an incredibly fun kids splash pad area (check it out here), an indoor amusement park with rides & games for all ages (check out Galaxyland here), two mini golf courses, a marina with penguins, sea lions and more, a pirate ship inside the mall, an indoor skating rink, loads of shopping and so much more. It’s the ultimate destination for a family vacation. You’ll find an overview of attractions in the mall here.
Inside the mall you’ll find the Fantasyland Hotel. The Fantasyland Hotel has been around for a while – I stayed there with my family when I was a kid – but it’s always getting renovated and updated for new unique experiences and to meet the needs of guests.
There are several themed rooms and luxury themed rooms to choose from inside the Fantasyland Hotel. We stayed in the Igloo King room and my son was so excited to check it out. We’ve been back home for over a week now and he’s still talking about the igloo bed.
The Igloo King room was the perfect size for my son and I but this would be a great room for a romantic getaway as well. With the jacuzzi tub beside the fireplace, it’s a great setting for a romantic staycation or vacation.
I have to mention the TV too – it was HUGE! Perfect for watching the Bachelorette while my little guy slept. Seriously, I need a TV this big in my bedroom at home!
In addition to the oversized tub, you’ll also find a shower in the bathroom plus the regular bathroom necessities.
The room was really clean and the staff was all really helpful. It’s the perfect location for a family vacation and it’s so convenient to be right in the mall with all the restaurants, the water park, the amusement park and all that shopping. We stayed there for two night but we could’ve stayed 4-5 days with all there was to do right inside the mall. My son has already told me that we’re going back in “10 tomorrows”. I think it’s safe to say that he loved his first West Edmonton Mall experience!
