Right from when our family of 4 arrived our experience was poor. The man on the front desk certainly did not know the meaning of guest or service. He was rude and unhelpful. The elevators are impossible to get luggage trolleys in or out as the gap is so wide the wheels get stuck. The room was shabby, carpet is... More

Stayed here for business in January 2015. Location was very central, but lots of homeless folks hanging around so didn't feel safe walking alone at night. Lobby and restaurant on main floor were fine but rooms were very shabby with very low lighting, bathroom was not clean, taps almost came off the wall when I turned on the shower. Only... More

I've read some other recent reviews for this hotel. I get it, you wanted posh and opulence, but when you're paying $120/night in the downtown area of a major city...give your head a shake! You get a clean hotel. You get a nice room with a comfy bed. The elevators work. There is hot water. There are ice machines and... More

1) submitted a pre-authorized form to have a credit card in file for arrival. I still needed a credit card when I arrived for the deposit which makes NO SENSE since we had paid for the hotel on bookings.com. Wth was the point then? Annoying especially when you want to sleep and related after long travels. Luckily the front desk... More

We flew in from England and this was our first night and time in Canada. This is a tired city hotel in need of renovation but that said the staff were helpful and the room on the 21st floor was large but with the smallest bathroom. The location was not bad and we felt we could walk everywhere that we... More

Spent a night last week, check in was smooth, very efficient, friendly professionals working the desk. True, it's older, but at just over $100 it's fine. Room was on the 21st floor, quiet, darkish, comfy king, basic bathroom, good enough shower, flat screen, no bad smells, Timmies, MacDonald's, Mack's, LRT.... right there......... all ya need for a night.

Staff were friendly enough but hotel needs a complete renovation... Definitely does not compare to other hotels for the price.. Spend a little more money this place is a dump. The table in our room had stains all over it, we even found a piece of cereal under it.. Bathroom could not even fit 2 people in it and this... More

I went during the last week of November for business. Stayed for 4 nights. Everything went smoothly, honestly I don`t have much to complain about, and that's always rare coming from me. My only problem was with the WIFI, was very unstable. I had an amazing king size bed, very comfortable with a lot of pillows. Carpet was soft, everything... More

Good location in the middle of downtown Calgary. I was checked into a room with a king bed. When I went to my room, I found a large mirror lying on my bed, along with a few bath towels. I called the reception, they promptly sent someone. They gave me a choice to stay or change my room. But they... More
