This hotel was absolutely perfect for our long weekend as a family vacation. We got the king-queen suite which actually had TWO separate bedrooms AND a giant living room with a full kitchen. We appreciated having a full refrigerator for cold drinks and leftovers. I am always worried when I go to a new location whether the area will be... More

Close to downtown, love the underground parking; breakfast is satisfactory but not the best I have had...though they do have fresh fruit, yogurt and various breads that you can toast. The breakfast staff is excellent.

I have stayed twice at this convenient hotel located downtown. Considering the location, having the free parking is a bonus. The complimentary breakfast is decent too and it's nice to have that option while needing to eat in a hurry in the morning. The furnishings and decor are dated but the service is overall helpful and friendly. We stayed about... More

A super-friendly staff, comfy bed and tasty breakfast is enough to keep me coming back, but I also love the location and proximity to everything that DT Calgary has to offer. It's not the newest, shiniest hotel in the city, but it doesn't have to be to keep me happy and comfortable.

This hotel is conveniently located about 20 minutes walk from Downtown Calgary & only 10 minutes from the C-train, which provides a free service through the Downtown area. There is ample parking both above & underground. The staff were friendly & efficient throughout our stay & had helpfully e-mailed a map showing the hotel's location before we travelled. Our room...

Love being greeted by the smiling staff on the front desk. After a long day of sight seeing the staff welcomes us back like family!! We only stay here when visiting Calgary, the convenience can't be beat, close to restaurants, the downtown core, transit. The reasonably priced for a downtown hotel.
