It's nice having another Hilton property in Calgary, since there were only two previous Hampton Inn properties in the vity. I stay at this property when the older Hampton Inn Calgary Airport (8 mins further south) is full.
This property is still under construction, with the Homewood Suites wing still being fitted. The interior of the Hampton property is fully finished. Exteriorly, the grounds are still being developed. There is precious little parking near the main entrance of the ---you are best off running inside to check in, get a room key and park on the unfinished side of the hotel or st dtreet level, and using your room key to enter from an auxillary entrance.
The rooms are nice enough, with comfortable Hampton beds. Washrooms are larger than other older Hamptons, although the rooms I stayed in only have a shower and mo tub. Do not pay extra to be upgraded to a mountain view room, as the mountains are barely visible and you will look out on to prairie and Calgarian suburban sprawl. The city view rooms offer a view of the airport parking and tarmac, as well as the drainage pond. The proximity to the airport does not mean noise, as the runways are much further away and the hotel soundproofing seems good.
There are no restaurants or other amenities within walking distance. Only stay here if you have a car or if you just need to be close to the airport. The shuttle will get you to airport doors in 4 minutes. The hotel has a tuck shop pantry and has a very limited dinner menu selection. One quirk when I ordered food was that I had to go to the front dedk to get my own soft drink.
The rest of the facilities seem well maintained. Lots of natural light in the pool room and the gym has a few more exercise machines than a lot of average sized hotels.
Service is professional and cordial, although the staff are saddled with dealing with some issues due to the new property.
