What a dump! My room was noisy and grubby. The shower cubicle etc needed a good clean. The restaurant was ok but my waitress was obviously desperate to get home! The food was average and had the feeling of mass catering. Reception was busy but adequate. My room was next to the lift and had not been soundproofed against it.... More

website indicated rooms had been refurbished, but when we arrived we were shown a very tired room. At our request we were moved to a better room but the heating wouldn't work, so we were moved yet again to another shabby room. It wasn't the end of the world. Cyberclubber is absolutely right! Rooms and street noise were excessive. Staff... More

Average - not terrible but certainly not great. Staff not overly welcoming (but not rude). Restaurant onsite quite good. Well located and close to cross city train. But there was nothing about this place that would make me want to bother going out of my way to stay here again.

we had a week of disgusting city centre experience. Location was good and that's pretty much all it was. Photos are misleading on the net. Rooms look that nothing was changed since 1980s and they are in ruins. New TVs from 10 years on photos gives you impression that it can't be that bad . But it is BAD. Smelly... More

Crumpled carpet and torn wallpaper should have set the alarm bells ringing. Our room was noisy and we did not get a good nights sleep. Stay somewhere else. The staff were friendly enough and the food in the bar was great. The hotel is well positioned but .... I would not go back.

I think I got what I paid for. But that included sketchy wi-if, fluorescent bulbs too big for the fixtures and cheap pillows. It was clean and close to where I needed to be; I'd stay there again. I wasn't expecting the Four Seasons (and you shouldn't either)

Went to calgary for a friends birthday and stayed at this hotel and it wasn't a great. The bed was terrible very uncomfortable got next to no sleep. The rooms are very out dated there wasn't even a plug in in the washroom. Our power went out twice and we had to have someone come up and fix it which... More

Room itself was very noisy with water pipes that rattled loudly when neighbouring rooms and my own, took showers. Street noise can be noisy but surprisingly the C-Train itself was not loud at all. The location is excellent. With the C-Train LRT right beside hotel you can hop on and off the train for free within the downtown core 24... More

Stayed here for just over a week in March/April. I was arriving in Calgary at short notice and needed somewhere Downtown that was reasonably priced. After hunting around online, I was basically left with a choice of either the Palliser or the Sandman. Given the price difference I opted for the latter. This isn't a bad hotel as such- the... More
