Red Deer Hotels

Nestled in lush green parkland, and bordered by towering spruce trees, Red Deer is a city that stays close to nature. Many corporate buildings line the downtown streets, but they are surrounded by lively bars and boutiques, giving the area a homely feel. Many visitors are attracted by the lakeside location, where people swim in the shallow waters of the lake, and boats bob calmly on the water all year round.

Things to see

Sylvan Lake Provincial Park isn’t far from the heart of the city, yet paddling in the calm, blue waters or relaxing on the long sandy beach feels like the perfect escapism. In the winter months, the lake freezes over, and you’ll see ice skaters twirling around its sparkling surface, as well as those braving the brisk weather to enjoy ice fishing. Private boat owners often arrive at Sylvan Lake Marina Bay, a smart neighborhood full of sought after real estate, with excellent facilities for yachts. Westerner Park offers a range of various sized venues, surrounded by sprawling car parks, allowing it to host agricultural shows, sports, and lively swap meets. If you want a safe way to spot a grizzly bear up close, head to the Discovery Wildlife Park, an essential day out for families. There’s a busy schedule of animal shows, as well as impromptu talks given by experts, and you may even get the chance to stroke the tamer creatures. If you’d like to find out more about the natural habitat of the area, the Kerry Wood Nature Centre offers a fun, interactive experience for kids, where they can explore the great outdoors, before heading indoors to the well-equipped nature center for talks and special events.

Many hotels also have indoor or outdoor pools, steam rooms, and other leisure facilities to ensure a relaxing vacation. If you’re traveling on business, then you’ll be pleased to find desks and phones in many rooms, as well as multilingual staff on hand to help.

Where to stay

Even if you stay in the City Center of Red Deer, you’re never far from the parks, lakes, and family-friendly attractions. Downtown often attracts leisure travelers and families, with a thriving, pedestrian-friendly area that hosts markets, boutiques, and lively festivals. The clean, well-kept streets also host many large corporations; meaning those traveling on business are just steps away from evening entertainment. In the evening, the area has a laidback atmosphere, as the sounds of chatter from local bars carries through the streets.
