“Nice Hotel”
Reviewed 30 December 2013

My family recently stayed at the Westin Calgary for Christmas Holiday, it was our first time staying at this hotel, i have booked two rooms and requested for a connecting room, to my surprised we were upgraded to a Junior Suite with a connecting room for my children when we checked in. The staff are very friendly, hotel is very clean…… right in the middle of downtown Calgary, KEG restaurant is by the lobby which make it more convenient for steak lovers.

The hotel is pet friendly, we came with our little dog and she even got his own pillow.

Overall, a good stay. Excellent staff and service. Rooms are very clean and it's right downtown. The only issue is the area by the elevator is slippery when it snows. Be careful or you can slip and fall like I had. There is not a whole lot carpeted in the area.

Other than that I will return to try it out again

Recently stayed at the Westin Calgary for the first time, for one night over the weekend, and was thoroughly impressed overall.

Afternoon check-in was a breeze, staff was very helpful and courteous.
Was asked also what type of room location I preferred (ie. away/close to elevator, high/low floor). Made request for high and away - which staff got for me.
Was also put onto a Starwood 'SPG' floor, which I imagine is 'quieter' than others...so that was great as well.

Room itself was spacious and well-appointed.
Nice king size bed, sleep quality was great!
Room was also clean and organized.

Bathroom was also nicely laid out and modern.
Nice bright vanity/sink area, with toiler and shower in the right places.
Bathroom area also has a 'separate' small dressing type area, with it's own light/mirror, which is great for more space (if you are 1+).

Parking is a substantial charge (min $19+/day), but that's to be expected for Downtown Calgary (standard). Rates during the week are more, cheapest on weekends, self park and valet options.

Love the amenities of the hotel.
KEG restaurant on-site/connected has great good, and open late (at least on weekends).
There is also a Starbucks attached, great for the morning!

Overall was a great stay.
Would definitely recommend to others, I will be back in the future! =)

Good location, well trained staff, and nicely appointed services -- popular bar/restaurant (the Keg), nice breakfast, The standard rooms are pretty small, even by Westin standards, and the in-room amenities are pretty dated - no iPhone dock, TV is grainy, desks are not laptop-friendly. Bed is comfy but pillows need help. For what you get, it's a pricey hotel but that's typical for downtown Calgary hotels. Rooms are surprisingly not as soundproof as I remembered, traffic noise is obvious and plumbing noises were heard clearly in my room throughout the evenings.

Room Tip: As high up as you can get to avoid street noises.

From check-in to check-out the experience at the Westin was great. Location is convenient for getting around Calgary. I decided to go green and received a $5 Starbucks voucher each day for not using the daily maid service. I could have taken the 500 starpoints instead. The rooms were a decent size, but the bathroom is a bit small. Bed was comfortable and room was clean. The workout facilities are good for travelers. I didn't need to use the service, but the hotel provides shoes to workout if you didn't bring any. I would stay here again while in Calgary.

Very busy hotel but then again all of them are in Calgary! It's a it pricier than most Westins but that's because of the city. Can't go wrong with the location especially in frigid Calgary! Tons of restaurants and coffee shops in the area makes it very convenient to grab something all hours of the day (well almost)

Room Tip: Ask for room away from elevator, it was working non stop all hours of the day!

Stayed here 2x. Once for the marathon. Beds are amazing. The Keg is downstairs. It's quiet. Pay the extra for valet! Stayed with my two small dogs. Staff all accommodating and friendly. It's right by a huge park. Close to shopping and theatre, it's really in the backyard! Would come back here in a heart beat!
