I was very pleased with this hotel. After flying for nearly 28 hours, it was great to arrive in a clean room with plenty of space. Having a separate living area to the bedroom meant more room for lounging and bags.
The breakfast was great in a nice clean room.
I would definitely stay here again.

We arrived early evening on a Friday. First, the hotel is not easily visible as you drive down the street. Second, there is no valet or valet parking so we had to go around the block and park in the garage, then carry our luggage into the hotel.
But other than that, the hotel was great. Check-in was easy, staff was friendly and helpful, and the suite was very nice. The complimentary breakfast was very good with quite a variety of offerings.
The hotel is also within easy walking distance of anything downtown.

Thank you for your recent stay with us and also for taking the time to post your review. On the parking issue, our attached and covered parking garage is accessible from the street directly behind the hotel (3 Ave. between 1st and 2nd Street). When you enter the parking garage and go one level down, there is elevator access that can take you directly to any guest room floor without the need to carry luggage up any stairs. ​Based on your experience, we will review our parking garage signage to make sure it is clear for all our visitors​.

​We are delighted you enjoyed our free daily hot breakfast buffet which also features a selection of fresh seasonal fruits, yogurt and breads. Thank you again for your business.

When we arrived the reception area seemed very dull and dreary but when we got to our room it was excellent.It had a large kitchen area with a dining table and a good lounge.The bedroom was a separate room.
You could also go onto the balcony outside and look down at the street below.
The hotel is quite near to shops and restaurants all within walking distance.

Bellmen, Dan Gillis & Vini Rocha, thank you for making my stay at the International Hotel memorable during RCM exams in June 2013. Your help in carrying my bike & other personal belongings down 26 floors (after walking up the stairs with flashlights because the elevator still wasn't working) after the flood remains a special memory. Best wishes for your futures,

Miriam Mahood

I have stayed at the International numerous times for business throughout the years. This time I stayed for the GPS and was plenty surprised on what awaited me. Never have I had some goodies left in my room, water, pop, wine, juices in the fridge, fruit, chips, cheese, crackers left on the table and then a knock at the door as well with another yellow bag with more treats welcoming for the GPS. In all the years I have stayed here even other years for the GPS I have never had this treatment so it was a nice surprise. I had a room on the orchid floor 18th for women only floor and it had some added bonuses you would not get on other floors such as curling irons, yoga ball and mat, ladies magazines and bath robe and slipper. The king bed as always so very comfy! Adequate pillows and duvet. Like every room I have stayed in before the bathrooms are very small but suit the purpose. You pay for parking but that is standard for downtown Calgary. The elevators well they are slow and always busy so be prepared to wait, the staff is excellent from the front desk to the lounge staff. Thank you for another enjoyable stay,

We had a two night stay over. Spacious room with a desperate sleeping area. Really good service overall.. friendly helpful staff. Clean and comfortable. Good hotel. Complimentary breakfast was fine. Would stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a suite but as ours was booked via an agent I don't know if they cost more than a room.

It was a real pleasure to stay here! Very clean, great price and great location. The suite had really nice furniture, and a fridge and microwave. It had a bedside tea setup and very comfortable bed. The only downside was there was often a wait for the elevators. The breakfast nook was above standard. Really great coffee.

Room Tip: You have to pay for parking, but the lot is inexpensive and right next door.
