We had read the reviews on this hotel and were excited to have a weekend getaway in Calgary. We got to the hotel and our first impression was good. But after about an hour things started to unravel. The room got extremely hot (which was odd because it was chilly out) so we turned on the portable air conditioner and we almost had to yell over top of the noise. There was no way we could sleep with it on so we had to sleep on top of the covers. The bed was quite hard and in the middle was a large lump so my boyfriend and I were forced to sleep far from each other. The pillows were all very high and hurt our necks. Needless to say we were quite grumpy after the lack of sleep. We were there for a total of 3 nights and made sure to put the sign on the door that kindly asks the house maids to clean our room, which never happened once. Our bed was not even made or towels refreshed the entire stay. Also after 11:00pm no one is at the front desk to help you out if you need something. The advertised breakfast was to our disappointment a couple of different fruits in a bowl. At check out we were not asked how our stay was, which was probably a good thing for the man at the front desk. After hearing all the hype and seeing the amazing renovations they had done here, we were very let down with the overall package.
