Reviewed 26 March 2012

The hotel is in a great location downtown. Rooms very clean and very spacious.
The staff were absolutely wonderful. They were very friendly and made sure that there were no concerns with the room. Sherry Blake, Operations Manager was on site and was very welcoming when we arrived at the hotel. When looking for a place to eat they had some wonderful recommendations and helped to get us accurate yet simple directions to where we wanted to go as we were not familiar with the city. We would definately stay there again, raates were very resonable.

We arrived early and they let us check in immediately. Super staff and a very, very clean hotel.

I stay at this location a lot and always for business. It isn't in the centre of downtown, the building is older and the area isn't paradise. Set your expectations if you choose this hotel.

To a person the staff is top notch, always accommodating and helpful. Because of Priority Club I am often upgraded to the jacuzzi suites. I find the rooms to be well maintained and perfectly suitable for business. Calgary is an expensive city to stay in but this hotel is priced right for its age and location. You also get a decent selection for breakfast, internet (wired or wireless) and parking included.

If you like good service, a functional space and are managing an expense budget then this is a good choice in Calgary. If you want luxury, steps to shopping and room service then look elsewhere.

Nice Bed (4th floor), clean, nice friendly staff, etc. Prie Ok

Don't stay here on a weekend !!! I am sitting here at 11:45 p.m. and there is a night club next door and poundng base on the whole building. Apparently the club managers and the city people dont care about the by-law, The hotel has tried. So again, great hotel but you better ask them if they resolved this before you try and sleep here on the weekend.

Room Tip: Apparently the street side is quieter. Noise still penetrates over loud tv and forced air heater.

I had no expectations arriving at this hotel. The reviews led me to believe this place could be awful or great. And there is nothing wrong with this place per se. It's clean, decently appointed and offers free parking (huge plus for downtown Calgary). My father and I shared a room with two queen beds and for two nights, it was fine for us. I'm big on things being clean, and this place was - right down to the washroom.

However, it's clearly not in the same ballpark as other hotels in downtown Calgary. Firstly, it's a little out of the way of the rest of downtown Calgary, however it is pretty close to a c train. The breakfast, while free, was barely adequate. Scrambled eggs, sausage, toast, cereal, yogurt, juice and coffee. I don't eat egg or sausage, so I was left with toast and a cinnamon bun. There was a pancake machine there, but it looked like it hadn't been touched, so I stayed away. Also, they didn't replace the shampoo or conditioner (which were excellent quality) and I had to ask for more.

A nice touch which we didn't take advantage of was the in room microwave and fridge. My boyfriends father stays here for 5 nights at a time when he's in Calgary consulting and enjoys these amenities.

So it's the little things that keep this out of the league of other downtown Calgary hotels. However, I would very likely stay again.

Room Tip: Ask for extra shampoo and conditioners.
