visited with family, and the room was quite spacious. there was ample car parking. the breakfast was basic and manageable. However, there was no veggie options in the hot items and the kitchen staff did not care about it. think it could be because the morning breakfast is outsourced to a third party and one cannot expect much from them!

We had a very nice suite in the Best Western in Calgary. There was a full kitchen, bedrooms, and a good size living space. In all a very nice place to stay with friendly staff. In all, I would stay again as it is a nice place. My one beef with the room is that I booked WAY in advance... More

One simple suggestion that would have prevented my wife from having a panic attach in the elevator. Place a visible sign on the exterior of the door at eye level door key required to operate elevator and or a sign of a size above the floor elevator buttons . Insert door key before pushing the floor button. Make the sign... More

This is the second time I stayed at this hotel. Great location, hot breakfast is a great bonus. I had issues with noise on the 15 floor (HVAC). I asked if I could be moved to a lower floor. When I came back from work the room was ready. No issues after that. Staff is friendly and helpful. Only wish... More

Despite some grunge on the floors and in the corners in the bathrroms, broken tiles in the kitchen area, and a bathroom fan that, despite claiming to be constantly on ... wasn't, the room was comfortable, well appointed, and well-laid-out.

Enjoyed the night in the hotel. The price was higher than expected due to the beginning of the Calgary Stampede. The hotel room was very clean and well appointed. The location gave easy access to the downtown area and restaurants. There was no restaurant in the hotel but, plenty around the area. The breakfast was adequate.

The hotel itself is not bad. It is a bit outdated but overall, it is great. It is centrally located and there's a cute cafe just across the street. We stayed at this hotel during Stampede weekend. Everywhere else was booked or you had to pay $400 a night. We had a king size bedroom on the 10th floor. The... More
