This Hotel refuses to take responsibility for properly cancelled reservations made through their partner Booking.com on their behalf. The web site falsely advertises no charge cancellation up to 5 days before check in. The Hotel however has a policy of no refunds up to 8 days before checking in. This is not displayed for public information through their partner's service.... More

Came to Calgary for work for what was supposed to be a few days. The stay stretched out to three weeks. Thank goodness this place was so accommodating. When I went to extend my stay they said they were fully booked up with regular rooms and all they had available was the spa (?) room. I knew my company would... More

I took a cab from Calgary airport to this Holiday Inn Express and was concerned that I would not have a car for the week, but this hotel has some interesting restaurant choices in easy walking distance. The rooms are very large, clean and modern and the hotel "feels" new. The bathrooms are also spotlessly clean and the beds are... More

Great overnight after long flight. Chosen so we could head out to BC easily the following morning. Check in was slow.....we arrived at 5.30 and there was a group of 5 plus 1 other. By the time we had completed check I. There was quite a line up. Needs to be a little slicker. Nice suite on the 4th floor,... More

We choose this hotel because it was pet friendly. We really appreciate the fact they let our small dog stay there. Loved this hotel. We arrived late and Miguel was wonderful at the check in, everything was ready. Room was really nice, great bedding, everything very clean. We loved this location as it was close to relatives who we were... More

We are Holiday Inn loyal, and this location did pretty good to keep up with the Holiday Inn standards. The only issue we noted was the paper-thin walls. At one point on Friday night we got out of bed to ask the people in the hallway to keep it down, but the hallway was empty. People must have been talkign... More

Overall satisfied. Hotel is clean and comfortable. It's a little too far from downtown but that depends on your needs. I drove back and forth from the office so no issue. Tons of restaurants in the area so you won't have a problem finding something you like (all price ranges). Breakfast was simple but very good. Scrambled Eggs, sausages, bacon,... More

I've stayed at this Holiday Inn Express multiple times, and as a Platinum Elite member I have been treated quite well - upgraded rooms on each stay. The staff is very professional, but not quite as friendly as staff at other properties In Calgary I've stayed at. The hotel itself and the guest rooms are in very good shape, extremely... More

I have to say I was quite surprised by this hotel and the room. The room which was a suite was only $130 + tax. It was booked last minute so price was reduced. Even the regular prices are very fair for what you get and proximity to things. The suite was just as good if not better than rooms... More

As an elite platinum member, I was very upset about my stay in Calgary on February 17th. I pull at truck and trailer. We specifically called and asked if their parking lot was adequate to get into and out of with a larger rig. They told us it was. I get here and it was one of the smallest I've... More

Dear Mulebob , Thank you for your comments, I apologise if you feel that we have misled you , it was not our intention. Perhaps the size of the "Rig " was misjudged at time of reservation as we do take special parking requests for larger Coaches / Busses that we specifically block off and have reserved , this is...
