We ttok a trip to Calgary in September for a wedding and decided to stay here as it was close to the ceremony and where our friends lived. I had of course read the numerous reviews on here and I was very apprehensive about paying good money to stay in a sub standard Hotel. We booked the jacuzzi room for the four nights we were in Calgary and this room was really comfortable and spacious. The Hotel is opposite the olympic village and this was our view from the bedroom, we were offered what side of the hotel we would like to stay on and this is the side to pick as the view form the other side is a bit industrial. This was my first time to Canada and as with everywhere we went the people were the most friendly I have encountered on my travels, the hotel staff being no exception, they were courteous, friendly and extremely helpful with any query. We really liked the room, air con was brialliant as it was high 20's and 32 degrees the day of the wedding. In saying this though, the heating and humidity in the hallways and the elevator was unbearable, we also heard a couple complain that it was worse down at the swimming pool. We didnt complain about this as we spent very little time in the Hotel so maybe there is a perfectly reasonable explanation for this.
We ate in the Denny's attached to the Hotel on a couple of morning's, WOW they do big breakfast's - will keep you going for the day. There is also a Bar attached to the Hotel, we popped in here on two nights and had a ball with the staff and locals.
Overall, we really enjoyed our stay at this Hotel, spotless room, great size and very practical for heading into the Rockies, Banff etc...
P.S. This part of the world is a must to see...Banff is like a town from a disney movie - I can only imagine what it is like with snow...
