I wasn't expecting to stay at the Acclaim Hotel in Calgary as it was a result of a missed flight connection. The airline tried to book me at the Delta Calgary Airport (attached to the airport) - to no avail.
I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised with my stay at the Acclaim Hotel. Even though one has to wait for a shuttle (or pay for a cab) to get to the hotel, this location is in much better shape and much more affordable than the Delta attached to the airport.
Staff at check-in were extremely friendly and ensured that I had everything for my stay (pre-booked taxi for the next morning as shuttle time was not convenient, setup wake-up call, offered internet instructions and reviewed hotel offering/amenities)
Although I would not say that the Acclaim is a "boutique hotel", the rooms are "boutique-style". By boutique-style, I mean a modern/contemporary decor. Room layout was a bit weird though - room is quite narrow and the bathroom is on the smallish side. Speaking of the bathroom, it featured an impressive full-body shower, which I wasn't expecting from this "value" place.
There were two complimentary water bottles in the room aand High-Speed internet is complimentary.
There is a small restaurant on site offering breakfast. Pacini, a Quebec-based mass market Italian restaurant is set to open in April - which will improve the desireability of this location (Having a full service restaurant on site is sone advantage that the Delta still has over the Acclaim Hotel).
The bed was extremely comfortable and I had a very good, but short, night of sleep
