On the surface, and when I first arrived, this hotel seems like a great modern and well-appointed choice to stay in Calgary. However, once I got settled into my room, some negative aspects soon became apparent... =(
Three negatives, unfortunately, stood out for me:
- The cleanliness could be ALOT better! On the surface, it seems like a modern and clean room - but upon closer inspection, there were a couple things that GROSSED me out. 1) the ice tongs had someone else's old food debris on it (see pic!), and 2) there were stray hairs on the shower walls! EEK.
- Not sure if it was just my room (2nd floor) or others as well, but the toilet/train would make a weird loud noise every 15-20 minutes or so. Even with the bathroom door closed, you could hear it 'going off' all the time.
- Finally the noise isolation/sound proofing from the hall/door into the room is lacking. Stayed in many hotels, and this one ranks poor in terms of sound/privacy from the hallway.
As a note, the hotel does provide ear plugs (but who really comes to a hotel and expects to always use/sleep with earplugs?).
Having mentioned the above 3 points, I would have to recommend to stay somewhere else.
If the hotel were to improve (significantly) on its cleanliness and sound/noise proofing, then I MAYBE would consider giving it another shot.
If you're looking for a hotel in NW Calgary area, I would personally recommend Aloft University (also a SPG hotel). Stayed there and it was great!
