First class treatment from a first class hotel


I stay at this hotel every time I am in Calgary. The staff is friendly and the hotel is very clean. This place has a great pool area, and I would recommend it for families with kids aged 14 and under.
The rooms are very nice, especially if you get a suit room. The higher up floors have a nice view of the city and you can watch the plans land at night. The Bar in the hotel has some great staff and it is a good place to catch a hockey game. The check in and check out is always very fast with knowledgeable staff.

We found this to be a GREAT family hotel. The rooms are HUGE for a hotel and are updated. The beds were very comfortable with good pillows and sheets. Everything was immaculate in our room! The towels are also very soft. TV's are huge LG flat screens. And did I mention how big the rooms were. That was a nice surprise.
The pools here were amazing. There are several waterslides into a nice spray pool, the hot tub is close so you can sit there and watch you kids slide away. There is also another quiet adults pool & hot tub in the gym which is taken care of very well for those without kids.
The staff was pleasant, the shuttles to and from airport were efficient and only abotu a 10 min. drive, loved the underground parking for your vehicle especially in winter.
We never tried the restaurants so can't comment on that.
Have not found any negatives about this property.

Room Tip: All rooms seem decent.

This Best Western was surprisingly terrific in every way. The hotel staff was very accommodating. When I lost my cell phone charger, they found me another one in their lost and found. The room was very large and equipped with coffee maker, frig, and microwave, as well as free Internet access. The buffet breakfast was included in the room charge and it was excellent. We enjoyed the pool and hot tub, as well. And the hotel also offers a free shuttle ride to and from the airport.

The hotel is located between the city and the airport. It is a hotel like any standard Best Western is. Nothing good to report, but nothing bad to report either. Big rooms, good bed and clean. It is more than suitable for any business trip or single night stay over.

I stayed here for 2 weeks in Feb 2012 on a business trip and had a buffet breakfast included with my room. Taking currency exchange into the equation, it was good value, clean with helpful staff. Food was good as was the airconditioning in my room - it was quiet and effective while temperatures outside ranged from -26C to +12C (The air is very dry - as it is outside). The bathroom was spaceous with a good shower. I had no transport of my own and as such the location is a little remote though there is a free shuttle to the airport and an on demand shuttle bus to the WestJet Campus. I don't know if it goes anywhere else. The Wi-Fi in my room worked! so overall a good stay

Used this hotel for a nap before our 2am airport arrival.

Our truck was safe and well cared for at a very reasonable rate. $30 above ground for the week we were gone. Shuttle to the airport was pleasant and on return we called the hotel to let them know we were back. The shuttle was not due for 45 minutes so we were instructed to take a cab to the hotel and they paid for it

The only thing I would like changed would be a late arrival rate. we pulled into town at 9pm and they knew we were only staying til 2am but wanted to keep our truck there but we still had to pay full room rate. I never did nap as the room we had was next to the elevator and I heard every trip it made

When you here Best Western, you think quality. This hotel is one of the lower standards in the Best Western line of hotels. It is still nice, but keep that in mind.
The hotel looks old from the outside, but is nicer on the inside. It has a coffee shop, a gift shop, a bar and a restaurant. There were other common areas for group gatherings and a few board rooms.
If you decide to park underground, bring your bags into the lobby at checkin. There is no elevator from the parkade, only tiled stairs up to the lobby level. I believe there were elevators to every other floor in the hotel. Parking is free with your stay.
The Water Park is so neat. There is a wading pool for tots complete with a little waterslide, waterfall, and lights that they go crazy for. There are 2 full-sized waterslides, 2 hot tubs and a decent sized swimming pool. It was the highlight of the stay.
We had a ‘Cabana’ Room. It’s a fun idea. Cabana Rooms have a patio that opens into the Water Park. The patio has a table and 4 chairs. If you’re concerned about our little ones getting into the pool if they escape the room, don’t worry. Best Western thought of that. The door that opens into the pool area has a child lock feature, after that there are about 10 stairs to get up to the pool entrance where you are met with a gate that would be very difficult for a child to open.
The drawback to having a Cabana Room is that it’s an indoor Water Park, and you don’t have a window to outside open air. The whole room smelled of chlorine. It was very difficult to breath. If you have any sort of breathing problems, do not get one of these rooms. There is an air conditioning unit in the room which helps a little bit, but it is still not suitable for anyone with Asthma or allergies. Other rooms would not have this problem. Otherwise the room was clean with plenty of towels and everything that a standard Best Western would have. The theme of the room was tropical. It was cute.

Room Tip: Do not get a cabana room unless you are okay with smelling chlorine all night.
