My boyfriend and I were looking for a place to stay in Calgary. Some of the hotels were very pricey but I was surprised by the rates of this Best Western and what it had to offer. We were pleased with the variety of the continental breakfast. The rooms were clean and spacious, with lots of towels. It was nice... More

I stayed for four nights for client events during Stampede. My room was clean and quiet, which was perfect for a great sleep after a long day. The BW Plus is well located within easy walking distance of 17th Avenue restaurants and shops as well as downtown.

Stayed here during Stampede week. Price is set at a premium due to the Stampede, which we don't mind paying if a hotel can justify it with a good quality room, but Best Western Downtown Suites Calgary failed to provide that experience. Broken cooling system, refrigerator, spotty internet and hard king bed were the downsides of our two night stay.... More

We stayed 3 nights while in town for some Canada Day festivities and some shopping. The room was a fair size, we did not use any of the small kitchen area amenities. The bed was comfortable. We were on the second floor and the street noise at that level is loud as the windows do not muffle any of the... More

Close to everything downtown this hotel lacks some of the amenities a frequent BW traveler is accustomed to and could use a refurbish in terms of dated rooms/beds etc. Room had some repairs needed and breakfast wasn't up to par with the airport best westerns. Location can't be beat for shopping, neighborhood eateries etc.

Lobby smells like Pinesall. A bad omen. This hotel is grubby. Not a comfy chair to relax in. I expected better. We have just arrived but I have a bad feeling. The closet opening is so small it's hard to get your arm in!

Dear No1a, Thank you for taking the time to write a review of our hotel!

I spent one night here on a business trip. The room itself was clean and quiet. The wi fi was wonky, as it is being upgraded. Sometimes only wired internet access worked.

Dear Human44, Thank you for your review! We are so sorry to hear you were not pleased with the complimentary hot breakfast, perhaps this was an off day as normally as we normally get rave reviews about the quality and variety offered at our breakfast.

The room was pretty large, more kind of a Suite, but old fashioned and standard interior design. In my opinion, needs a general renovation and pay attention to small details like lighting, socket outlets next to where needed,..... Staff was friendly. Breakfast ok, but small variety
