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 The Westin is too busy, and the Sheraton is outdated and expensive considering the need for renovation.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.

Stayed at the Acclaim at Calgary airport between flights in and out on two days. The shuttle runs from bay #10 outside area C on the international arrivals level at 15 and 45 minutes past the hour. The return shuttle leaves the hotel on the hour and half-hour. The drivers were friendly and helpful and gave everyone a bottle of water. Hotel check-in was straightforward and friendly and we were advised of the various benefits - free wifi, breakfast, 20 minutes of free telephone calling time to any Canadian or US location, skydeck and hot tubs, fitness centre, free DVD movies at front desk, etc. The rooms are on four floors. Ours was quite roomy with plenty of supplies and a good bathroom. A good choice of hotel for an airport location.

We stayed one night at the Acclaim before our flight out of Calgary after a week in the mountains. The hotel had everything you could ask for. Very clean and well equipped. The front desk employees were very helpful and very accommodating. The restaurant that is attached, Pacini, had excellent food.
The immediate area is mostly warehouses and light industry, and was disserted since it was Sunday. It was still convenient to a nearby and huge outlet mall if you needed that sort of thing. It was also a short ride to an Original Canadian Superstore that we always like to visit when in Canada.

We booked this hotel through Hotwire, and were delighted when we ended up with the #1 hotel in Calgary.

We arrived around 9:30 at night, and were greeted with great service. We were really just looking for a place to crash, but when we arrived in our room, we knew we had hit the jackpot.

Free bottled water (which was great for Day 2 of our road trip), bathrobes, and a fantastic shower were all great surprises after a long day on the road.

It was a little ways off the Trans Canada, but that was ok, as it was a simple drive back the next morning!

We would definitely stay again. We were on the main floor, but heard NO noise at all from other rooms, traffic, or the airport nearby.

This hotel is very clean, remarkably quiet, and the staff are always awesome. The hotel's Italian restaurant is also great.

My family and I stayed in 2 rooms at Acclaim Hotel in Calgary for one night at the end of our vacation in the Rockies. We just loved the hotel. It's not in a fancy location but it is right next to the airport and could not be more convenient for travelers. We were greeted warmly at the reception desk, where they had fresh Granny Smith apples, which we really appreciated after a day of traveling. We used the free shuttle service when we returned our rental car to the airport the night before our flight and also in the morning for our flight out of Calgary. The shuttle driver was courteous, timely, and even offered us free bottles of water.

The Hotel offered complimentary beer and wine and hors d'oeuvres in the evening, along with a variety of board games and free DVD loans...and not just ancient movies either. We watched the Coen Brothers' "True Grit" on the huge flat screen in our room.

Beds and pillows were very comfortable, which was great after 10 days of hiking. The hotel has 2 beautiful roof-top hot tubs and really comfortable outdoor furniture, with music playing! Great place to unwind and watch the planes land.

Awesome bathrooms! Showers with big shower heads and body massaging spray, with small flat screen in the bathroom. I watched Seinfeld while showering! Everything was clean and in mint condition.

We have already recommended this hotel to friends and will absolutely stay here when we are in Calgary next time.
