I stayed here on the Gold upgrade package and got an extra large room, turndown service and other minor benefits. The big plus of this package is the access to the Gold Lounge on the top floor. This provides an excellent relaxed breakfast, evening snacks and an honesty bar. The concierge service is also a brilliant add on as the staff are really efficient, kind and courteous. I would especially mention Jon, Stephanie, Dawn and Corinne who went out of their way to be helpful.
The hotel itself is an an excellent location for downtown Calgary and there are lots of good restaurants, bars and stores nearby. It's within easy walking distance of museums, restaurants and parks. Although it is in the grand railway style it is well modernised and whilst it backs onto the CP freight line if you ask for a quiet room it's not a problem. For me a big plus was the lovely pool and gym which were never too busy, again staffed by helpful personnel.
My 11 nights here felt like a holiday not a business trip!
