“perfect everything”
Reviewed 6 November 2011

I decided to stay at the International hotel while in Calgary for a conference and everything about my stay was perfect!! The Front Desk staff on check in was really welcoming and helpful. My suite was spacious, cozy and full of amenities one could only hope for including a yoga mat, straightening iron, aveda amenities, large selection of fashion magazines as well as comfy robes and delicious chocolates on my pillow. The king size bed was so comfy and the white waffle bedding so modern and luxurious. I had room service one night and the food was outstanding and reasonably priced. The location could not of been better. I will be back to Calgary and I will be back to the international. Amazing hotel. Enjoy. I did.

Hotel rooms in Calgary are scarce and pricey these days. This hotel used to be pretty dingy but the rooms are renovated and spacious. Compact, functional bathroom, spacious separate bedroom with great mattresses and a flat screen. Spacious living area with tables, couches, desk, microwave, bar fridge and sink. Wineglasses but no dishes in the room, so not really a kitchenette. Lots of food options outside the hotel, including within the office tower food courts connected by the +15 indoor walkways. Location is a few blocks from small Chinatown and Riverwalk and Eau Claire Mallket. Pool and hottub in the basement plus a well equipped fitness room with good treadmills, etc. Only minor annoyance is could hear elevator dings from everywhere in the suite. Voices in the halls aren't too much of a problem as there are only 8 rooms per floor. Bar is cozy and welcoming and good place for a Trad and wings to watch the game (no sound on), reading a book, or visiting.

Room Tip: North facing rooms won't have a view except for the much higher office tower. My room was on 10t...

Not a bad thing to say about my stay. Was in town on a brief business trip and had never been to the city before. the place exceeded expectations and the staff was particularly helpful. JP at the front desk was wonderful and very patient with my many questions. Ill definitely be back.

I recently stayed at this hotel with my boyfriend while on a weekend getaway with another couple. This hotel was close to really great restaurants and nightlife, the only time we needed a car was to go to the zoo, but other than that everything was in walking distance.

The staff were all very friendly and helpful, and the bartender in the hotel bar was awesome! The decor in the rooms can use a facelift, but for the size of the room, the price we paid and the location this was a non-issue. Overall, we had a great stay and would recommend this hotel to anyone planning to visit Calgary.

The hotel was to be our "home" for the next two nights and the first accommodation for our Canadian holiday. After a long flight it was great to be greeted by a couple of smiling, friendly and helpful guys on reception - a good first impression. The room was large with a lounge, dining, kitchenette and separate bedroom ( which had really comfy beds )
Excellent breakfast selection, good locatiion close to Steven Avenue, Calgary Tower and Prince Island Park. An enjoyale stay in a lovely city.

Our suite on the 32nd floor was great, we were only there for two nights. The room was clean, tidy and well appointed, we had no problems with hot water or toilets and had a great view. The bed was large and comfortable, the bathroom was a bit tiny but it was nice to have a lounge, dining room and kitchenette.
We found staff to very very friendly and helpful. The lifts did get a bit busy and were a bit slow at times - especially when waiting on the 32nd floor.
The lobby, bar and dining rooms were looking a little worse for wear, the dining area attached to the bar was a bit dark and dingy and a little smelly but the food was fine. Breakfast was ok but a service a bit slap happy.
Overall we were very pleased with our short stay on the 32nd floor!

I returned to the International Hotel after more than three years' absence and found it still to be very good value for Calgary. Suite was spacious, clean and well maintained. Front desk staff were pleasant and efficient. Good parking at a reasonable price. Front lobby looked a little worse for wear and could do with an update. The bathrooms are small, and hot water has always been an issue in this hotel. My room was on the third floor, but it took several minutes to get hot water out of the taps, so I don't know where it was coming from. Excellent location downtown and close to many restaurants. Taking the price, location, space and other features together it makes a good package.

Room Tip: Elevators can be busy at peak times. Rooms on the lower floors can access the lobby by stairs witho...
