I stayed here 3 nights for the 2013 Calgary Expo. I was apprehensive after reading some of the negative reviews but The Holiday Inn was better than expected. The food, staff, service, rooms and general ameneties were awesome. The few negatives were, there was some marijuana smell in the hallways and two maintenance workers walking in front of us did nothing, and said nothing, It was disappointing. Drug use is unacceptable and there are ways to eliminate it. The bathroom had a small hole above the bathtub and a weird vent that was stuffed with some material. There was also a piece of wallpaper that had been cut out and replaced it wasn't flush and was peeling at the bottom. The furniture while nice could've been placed better as the coffee maker was on a small awkward table and the TV was on a low dresser making it hard to see while laying down. the large sideboard with the table that rolls under it would've been more appropriate. The room lacked electrical outlets amd we had to unplug the clock. An iPhone dock would've been nice. The Wi-Fi was really good though. Also, I loved the food but the room service menu lacked serious detail like side dishes and beverages. The pool was nice, the guests acting like fools weren't and I was suprised no cameras were watching to stop any unruly behavior. Lastly the way to the LRT station is unkempt and the outside of the hotel should be just as important. Overall I did enjoy my stay, and would stay again. Thanks!
