My wife and myself s tyed here for 3 nights a tthe beginning of June. I would say that with it's location near the downtown core (or City Centre) is it perfect. You could probably walk to the core area in 20 or so minutes, or to the C-train in 10. There is a Safeway grocers about a 5 min walk away and some pretty good restaurants another 5-10 or so minutes away walking. Although there is free parking, we tried to walk to most locations.
We had a king room and it was perfect. Perfeclty clean and roomy. I picked this hotel on price based upon what other downtown hotels cost and I was super happy with my choice. Although this hotel seems to be a major staying place for business travelers, as older people on a holiday this was a great choice too. They have a small kitchenette in the room along with a mini-fridge. You could probably cook a meal although they "stove" were electric burners, why not go out and try some Alberta Beef when you are there. The did have the basic continental breakfast with juices, cereal, milk, coffee, breads, rolls and of course the do it yourself wafflemaker (and thank you to the nice woman working the breakfast room, helped with my ineptness trying to learn the basics of waffle making!).
The front desk was very helpful in getting me directions to places I wanted to see, and they have a nice little business/computer room if you need to use a computer, although they do provide free internet in the rooms. FYI, although the hotel has free WIFI, it was faster using the cable (cad) connector in the room rather then the WIFI,,the cable is in the desk.
If I make it back to Clagary (and I want t o be there some year for the Stampede) this will be my choice of hotels to saty at.
