“Already Looking forward to my next stay here”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 April 2014

I recently had an opportunity to stay at this new hotel. I have stayed at Aloft hotels before and extremely happy with my stays and this hotel did not disappoint. The front desk staff were friendly and excited to showcase their new hotel. The decor was modern chic yet classy. My actual room and overnight stay was excellent. The rooms were clean and more importantly quiet which allowed me to conduct business calls and get a good night's sleep. Look forward to my next stay here.

Couldn't believe it. 5 days old and the toilet didn't flush at all, the shower stall leaked all the way to the front door.
They moved us on the second night, and there were peanuts all over the place when we got back to the room. One of us is deathly allergic to peanuts!
When told about this, was offered 20% off, but it wasn't added to the account. The next morning, we were told no one else had been in the room, according to their computer. So we were essentially accused of lying too.

we came up to Calgary on short notice and couldn't get a room at the Palliser Hotel. Aloft Hotel was suggested as a new hotel. The hotel had been open for 4 days. We thought we'd walked into an Apple store when we entered the lobby or a college dorm. Everything smelled new which was nice. But we were disappointed in the room. We were on the main floor - I don't remember the front desk guy telling us how to get to our room. The room was on the dark side (lighting & decor) - almost felt like being in a partial basement. No bathtub, only shower - which the front desk didn't mention. We asked if breakfast was included in the rate we had been given - he said no - given the hotel was new you would have thought they might have a promotion the 1st week of business. Nothing - no free drinks in the lounge, no cookies on arrival. We could hear cars outside when their owners would beep to lock their doors. We wouldn't stay again.

Room Tip: perhaps rooms on a higher floor are better?
