I prefer the Westin or Sheraton, but love staying at the Acclaim when in Calgary. The Westin is too busy, and the Sheraton is outdated and expensive considering the need for renovation.
The staff at the Acclaim are very accomodating and the rooms are well appointed, and spacious. The front desk check-in is always seemless and every staff member is friendly and genuinely concerned about customer satisfaction. Near the front desk, recent movies are avialable for use in the rooms. Each room has 'smart' technology, you use your key card to enable the lights and TV, etc.
The rooftop hot-tubs are great with a drink in hand (the roof top bar was not open when I was there) and provides some great views of the city at night.
My only complaint is now that the Barlow Trail is closed, it is more difficult to get to from anywhere south. The traffic on the Deerfoot must have increased by 40000 cars daily and it is virtually the only option unless you want to take the detour around the construction, but that is only one lane.
Pacini's restuarant provides good Italian food, which is fortunate as the closest dining is near 32 avenue, a bit of a drive.
The Acclaim will continue to receive my business while in Calgary.
