I stayed at this hotel while on business in Calgary.
Every single downtown hotel was booked when I came down, so this hotel on the University of Calgary campus was the next closest spot. I can see how the location of this hotel is ideal if you're doing any business at all at the university; you can walk to everything. Even commuting to downtown wasn't too bad, considering Calgary's notorious rush hour traffic. The other nice benefit of this location was going for my daily run; it was a nice, scenic run to the Bow River & back.
The hotel has a boutique feel. Reservations & check-in were easy, and the parkade is a short walk away (maybe a minute). The room was clean, nicely decorated and seemed a bit cozy, but I was travelling solo, so no problem at all. Free wifi & breakfast.
Overall, I had a satisfying stay here and would stay again if I needed to be in the area.
