“Love this hotel!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 April 2008

Stayed a week on business in one of their suites. Everything was well maintained and clean.

Nice pool and workout facilities. Included breakfast (continrntal) includes a make your own waffle station and was great. Cookies at the front desk are a great touch too!

We chose to stay here as we hired a car and were driving to Jasper and back. The previous reviews were the reason we chose this property.

We arrived early, about 2pm. It was initially a minor drama to check in but this was quickly resolved and we got a room.

This is a nice hotel, nothing fancy, just comfortable for the price. It has a coffee maker in the room, no refrigerator and a standard hotel size bathroom. The room was a decent size for a standard room and had a sitting area. The rooms have free internet available and they supply you with ethernet cable.

We stayed here on the way too and when we returned from the Rockies. It was a comfortable, convenient place to stay. The staff were nice but not overly friendly, don't get me wrong, they were pleasant enough, but having just come from Vancouver (see our other reviews) they were not as friendly.

The breakfast was included and was okay, but we found the juices and milk warm and it wasn't well maintained. Of the two days we stayed we only had one breakfast so it may have been a bad day.

Overall, we found it a good but not great place to stay. If in Calgary and we were doing the same thing though we would stay again.

  • Liked — Close to airport, comfortable
  • Disliked — Nothing special, but I guess not every place is

Arrived from Europe in the evening and needed a place to stay overnight before heading for the Rockies. Picked up the rental car at the airport and drove straight to the hotel, which is about 10 minutes from the airport. I believe it would be difficult to reach this hotel without a car.
I loved the fact that you can fit the entire family of five in one hotel room. We booked a triple queen room, ideal when you have 3 children under the age of 12.
The rooms were clean, the receptionists were friendly and forthcoming, the breakfast was fine and the the pool area was clean. Did not use the gym, so I don't know what state the equipment was in.

Sightseeing in Calgary would be difficult without a car when staying at this hotel, as it is quite far from the centre. However,
for those of you who drive or intend to hire a car, the hotel is a good option, as it is more reasonably priced than the centrally located hotels.

Stayed June 2007

We travel to Calgary at least once a year and we keep coming back to this hotel. Competitive rates, excellent suites, free breakfast, nice pool and close to a number of chain restaurants (Chilis, Joey Tomatoes, Keg, Tony Romas, etc) and it is close enough to the major roads to allow easy access to the rest of Calgary.

Stayed here for one night after flying into Calgary. Only about a ten minute drive from the airport and easy to find. We had a double room with a king-size bed that overlooked the car park at the front of the hotel. The room was large, very clean and had air-conditioning. It was also double glazed and we didn't notice any noise from the car park.
The breakfast was a self-service buffet style - a selection of cereals, fruit, yoghurt, pastries, toast, rolls, juices, tea and coffee. You could also make your own waffles!
You could also help yourself to coffee throughout the day - free of charge.
Our only criticism is that the restaurant is only open for breakfast - they do not provide evening meals.
A good place to stay after a tiring journey from the UK.

  • Liked — Good size rooms that were very clean.

We booked in for one night prior to flying on to Toronto. Hotel was very convenient for this purpose however the area is very industrial and probably not good for a longer stay. The swimming pool was great, just what we needed after a long drive. The room was very big and comfortable and the staff were very helpful. Breakfast was great and designed for travellers with take away cups and bags available. There was also a restaurant right outside the hotel that had a nice atmosphere, good food and great staff.

After a long flight this was an easy hotel to find very close to the airport. The staff were very friendly and the standard rooms were spacious and comfortable. The free breakfast was better than most buffet breakfasts and set us up for the next day.
