“Absolutely hit the spot”
Reviewed 19 September 2012 via mobile

We needed a hotel for one night prior to a transfer from Calgary airport & chose the Acclaim based on reviews. We were so glad we did!
The good experience started with check in where we were dealt with by 2 charming young men who couldn't have been more friendly & helpful.
We needed to return a rental car to the airport & the location could not have been bettered. (However, be warned, the extensive roadworks around the airport make navigation quite difficult. The biggest difficulty for us was that the temoorary road surfaces have no markings on them & twice on the way to return the car we went the wrong way ie. against the traffic).
The room was larger than we expected. Huge, comfortable (firm) bed. We both had an excellent night's sleep with no noise. Everything was new & worked. It was modern & quite stylish although not exactly full of character - I should imagine every room is virtually identical.
One minor point, but we both appreciated it, both the bedroom & bathroom had some kind of background greyish night light which was completely unobtrusive with eyes closed but sufficient to move around without disturbing your partner at night.
I don't normally review hotel restaurants but the attached Italian (Pacinis) was excellent. The meal was a highlight of the day. It appeared to have quite a few non-hotel customers which is usually a good sign.
I would definitely recommend the Acclaim to anyone wanting a hotel near the airport.

Stayed here for 4 nights. Rooms were nice and clean, modern and very friendly staff. Food was excellent. I stayed here on the recommendation of my cousin and he was right. Room was a little smaller than I anticipated but overall great experience. When I return I would definitely stay here again.

A good place to stay overnight if arriving too late to continue into the Rocky Mountains.
Although the hotel did not look particularly inviting from outside and was surrounded by a building site, it was very clean, comfortable and relatively quiet. The coffee shop/Italian restaurant served everything from a snack to a full meal. Also there was a free shuttle to the hotel from the airport every 15 minutes, but we were not aware that you needed to call the hotel from the freephone in the shuttle bus parking bayand had to wait some time before later arriving passengers called, not so good after a long flight from England

Selected this hotel based on TripAdvisor rating and cost. The hotel did stand up to the rating, the rooms where well lit and very neat. Very friendly staff. The restaurant was excellent, the breakfast was great. Wide variety of Italian food that were quiet unique in taste was available during dinner time. The place is very isolated and no nearby shops where available for any quick shopping.

Selected this hotel because it was located close to the airport and we had an early flight. The hotel is new and has a very modern decor. The room was rather small but okay for one night. The staff was very efficient as was the airport shuttle. The location is presenly in the middle of a construction zone with nothing else around it. There is an okay restaurant attached to the hotel. This is a good hotel for the airport but because of the location I would not stay here if not catching a flight.

Whenever I come to Calgary this is one of my favorite places to stay. The rooms are modern, clean and spacious. The bathrooms are wild....including a TV (never worked on any of my visits). The shower it interesting with plenty of shower heads! I just wish there was enough water pressure to make them all work at the same time. The Keurig coffee maker a huge plus, free local AND LONG DISTANCE calls. The restaurant is good, can be sometimes inconsistent with service levels, but still very nice. My favorite amenity is the roof top hot tub(s) a GREAT way to relax. I just wish it was open later than 10:00PM All in all a wonderful place.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms near the elevator, the music can penetrate the guest room door.
