Stayed one night (Room 415) while attending an office function in the hotel on a Friday night in December. Despite how busy the lobby was, check in went smoothly. First bad experience was in the crowded elevator when a member of the hotel staff asked to borrow my key card in order to hit floor buttons for other people on the elevator (shouldn't he have had his own key card??!!). Had to ask for it back when arrived on 4th Floor, and he didn't even thank me. Room very large; but so so dark. Not a very efficient use of space. Definitely needs more light! (Almost left a black dress there because I couldn't see it!) Bathroom vanity was stained (leftover liquid of some sort; soap/hair goop), so I cleaned it with a wet facecloth. One of the bedside lamps didn't work. Minimal closet space. No view from the east-facing room, but we were getting a corporate discount and hadn't expected much in that regard. Fantastic bed.
My husband checked in later and did valet parking. Absolute chaos. Nobody knew where to leave keys, who to speak with, and no attendants for quite some time, which meant a massive line up down 9th Avenue in rush hour.
Our function was excellent; great, great food in a really nice banquet room. One of the best parties we've ever attended. Breakfast was European style and very nice. Friendly staff too.
Be very, very careful upon checkout - double check amounts. We were over-charged for parking, but I was promptly refunded when I sent an email.
We'd probably stay again, because it's a nice thing to do when attending late night parties since it's so difficult to find other transportation options in Calgary.
