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.
