Recent reviews on Trip Advisor left us not sure what to expect, but we had a perfectly pleasant stay.
The outside of the hotel is looking a little shabby, but our rooms were perfectly fine- maybe a little dated- particularly the bathroom, but well maintained and clean.
Other visitors have remarked on the hotel's poor air conditioning system, and granted, it was a little noisy. However we hit on the novel idea of opening a window to let some fresh air in :o)
All the staff we spoke to were pleasant and helpful. We arrived too early to check in and when we left we had several hours to kill between checking out and flying, but on both occasions the desk staff took our suitcases for us and locked them away safely until we returned.
The location is great for using Calgary's fabulous public transport system. Our main purpose of staying in Calgary was visiting the Stampede and it was a great help just being able to step onto the C Train and get to our destination with the minimum of fuss.
The presence of a special desk in the hotel's lobby where you could pick up free maps and leaflets and ask questions about Stampede etc was a great idea.
We arrived 2 weeks after the horrendous floods and were very impressed with the way the city as a whole had pulled together to get things back to normal.
