The first thing you'll notice about this Courtyard is that when you walk in, you are immediately greeted and welcomed. The front desk staff go out of their way to make sure that you feel welcomed. It probably helps that there isn't the typical front desk, instead you see podium-like check in stations. The hotel is very new, but it is also very well appointed. Colours are modern and fresh. Calgary prides itself on being a 'western' style city, and the motif throughout the hotel is somewhat western, but not in a cheesy or gaudy way. Artwork and decorations are modern and very chic.
The rooms are very spacious and well thought out. Closets are almost in the middle of the room, which sounds odd, but they work well into the room. The rooms are very typical boxes, yet don't feel like the standard hotel box. Design and decorations in the room are just as well done as the hotel and common areas, with a great mix of colours and styles.
Even though the hotel is right next to the airport and runway. Seldom do you hear the planes.
There is ample parking and even though the parking lot has a bit of an odd shape, you are really never more than a few steps away from the front door.
I'd almost say that when this hotel was designed, they consulted a large number of business travelers to gain their thoughts on what works and what doesn't. Then those ideas were incorporated into the design of the hotel. The Courtyard is really a great place to stay. My only gripe is the location, The commute to downtown or south can be long, but this is hardly the fault of the hotel.
Overall a wonderful hotel to stay at. I'll be back.
