I really enjoyed my two-night stay at the Westin Calgary. As a platinum guest, my upgrade was pretty standard. There were two things that I liked very much about the Westin:
1) The breakfast that they included for platinum guests was a massive buffet in the restaurant, and was terrific. It was one of the best breakfast spreads that I've seen at a hotel.
2) They have nice new renovated showers (no bath tub) in the rooms. I much prefer having a nice, modern, spacious shower rather than being cramped in an old bathtub/shower combo. It is a much nicer experience not having to fight with a shower curtain.
The lobby is very small and unremarkable, unlike the Sheraton around the corner. But, in the end, who cares about that.
Downtown Calgary is nice and compact and I could walk anywhere I needed to go within 15 minutes. The location of the Westin is also close to the river, which is also very scenic. I'd stay here again in a heartbeat.More
