Beautiful place, very clean and cosy. the parking lot may very a little far, but you can unload in the front door. We had to wait in a line to do the unload, but it wasn`t a problem (and we had a lot of stuff!!).

we chose this hotel thru hotwire, it was one of the cheapest we found... very good, clean, brand new, cozy room, nice breakfast. right in the middle of the university. The bad thing was that the parking lot was a little far from the hotel (an issue on winter) and there was nothing to eat close to the hotel.. other... More

Stayed two nights when I was in U of Calgary for a conference. Crowded breakfast area and not so warm staff but reasonably ok when you need to be in the campus. Clean room, though. Not worth the price.

I stayed 2 nights at the Hotel Alma while I participated in a fitness competition held at the University of Calgary. My stay was overall quite enjoyable! The staff were very friendly and professional; parking was ample and easy to deal with. I was happy that they had luggage trollies as I was travelling alone, so I was able to... More

I spent two nights here during school term--which is important to note, since the first three floors are a student residence during the main terms of the academic year. Nonetheless, my suite was very quiet (top floor), spacious, clean, and nicely equipped with kitchenette, 2 TVs (!), king bed, and decent-sized bathroom. Alas, the wiring in the bedroom means that...

I stayed again last week for 4 nights, this time with my wife in one of their suites. The reception I have received in arrival has always been very warm and helpful. I like that the hotel is clean and in a peaceful, quiet area, where there is good parking for minimal extra cost in the multi-storey car park visible... More

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights when I was attending a meeting at the University of Calgary. We had a one bedroom suite, which was quite spacious for two people. The king sized bed was very comfortable, the bathroom was large, and the entire suite was very newly appointed. Robes were a very nice bonus.... More

This hotel is right on the University of Calgary grounds and is well situated if one is needing to be on campus and/or are in town for a Stampeders game. The hotel has few amenities, but otherwise provided a nice room for a reasonable price.

The room was perfect for us : modern, comfortable and highly functional even if it was small. The breakfast was very good (scrambled eggs, French Toast, yogurt, coffee/Tea, etc.). The customer service was excellent. My only recommendation is that for the price of the room (around 180$) and the fact that the hotel is not downtown they could give the... More

Alma sits on the doorstep of Calgary University so you tumble out the door and into the attractive campus, with access to typical student cafes, bar and food courts, but a bit of a walk (or short drive) to get to the nearest supermarket complex. Tidy, comfortable rooms, helpful staff, and a small restaurant - that I used only for... More
