Marriott International opened its 250th property in Canada. JW Marriott Edmonton ICE District is the brand’s first outpost in the city. Situated in downtown Edmonton, the property offers the city and travelers its unique take on luxury, wellness and dining experiences.
Spa by JW is Edmonton’s only full-service luxury hotel spa. Each of the spa’s five treatment rooms features rain showers and private balconies. The hotel’s wellness services are rounded out with Archetype, a state-of-the-art fitness club set over 1.5 floors with an expert team taking a scientific approach to what it calls high performance. The club welcomes local members with the latest equipment — including a Somadome meditation pod — and group studio classes.
On-site dining options include a 5-star chophouse, Braven; an all-day, casual eatery, Kindred Food + Drink; a destination cocktail bar, Alchemy; and Lobby Bar, for business and social gatherings.
The property’s more than 300 guestrooms are just steps away from the Edmonton Convention Center and Edmonton’s Arts District. The property is directly connected to Rogers Place Arena and guests enjoy exclusive access to meet-and-greets and behind-the-scenes arena tours.
“JW Marriott is dedicated to providing our guests with enriching experiences in distinctive locations around the world, and JW Marriott Edmonton is the perfect example of this philosophy in action,” said Mitzi Gaskins, global brand leader, JW Marriott. “The centerpiece of the city’s buzzing new ICE District, JW Marriott Edmonton provides guests the opportunity to experience every moment to the fullest through JW Marriott’s individualized approach to luxury.”

Welcome to Rhodes, a medieval treasure beautifully preserved throughout the centuries. Rhodes is the capital of the Dodecanese, an island ideal not only for those who want to relax, but also for those looking for an action-packed holiday! With its bright green hills, rich green valleys and uninterrupted line of golden beaches, Rhodes is truly a blessed place. “The sun island” has more sunshiny days and milder temperatures throughout the year than any other location in Greece. It is, after all, one of the country’s easternmost places and among the first to welcome summer on its impressive beaches. Add in the excellent facilities for tourism, the island’s special blend of cosmopolitan and traditional, and numerous cultural and archaeological sites, the most important being the Medieval (Old) Town, a UNESCO World Heritage site, and you’ve got the perfect holiday destination. While on Rhodes, don’t miss a daytrip to nearby Sými. An island of sponge divers and seamen, Sými used to have 30,000 inhabitants before the Second World War and was the richest island in the Dodecanese, despite its small size. Today, Sými attracts many visitors thanks to its beautifully preserved Neo-Classical buildings and the famous Archangel Michael monastery at Panormitis.
FOR THOSE OF US PASSIONATE about wellness pursuits and who feel most at peace close to the sea, there’s nothing quite like the synergy offered by a floating spa integrated into the setting of a luxurious cruise ship. I’m sailing through the Mediterranean from Rome to Barcelona, discovering along the way that the Crystal Life Spa & Beauty Salon on board the Crystal Serenity provides not only the element of high-end indulgence but also the cruise line’s signature commitment to attention and service.
