My family stayed over here during the spring break. The room was clean and quiet. (And considering our room was only a few doors down from the main road I was impressed we hardly ever heard the traffic) The staff was courteous and my kids loved the decent wifi. We used the pool and hot tub once. Its a bit... More

I just stayed here for the first time because of a medical appointment in Calgary. I was expecting a hole of a hotel but was pleasently surprised. The hotel and my room were very clean. Very adequate space. Usually these type of hotels in Calgary are owned by Indians or other Asians and are usually a real dump. I was... More

We have stayed here quite a few times and generally been satisfied with the value for money. However, this trip was a nightmare. We booked on-line (as usual) at least a few months in advance, and booked a King size (as usual), and expected to have a decent room in the tower (as usual)... well it did not turn out... More

Great welcome after a long flight. Pool a little cool but hot tub good. Breakfast standard for this type of hotel, lots of sugary stuff like muffins and danish, no good for diabetics but no different from any other! Very good value.

My suite was immaculate, everything worked, and the staff were very cheerful and helpful. They couldn't do much about the blizzard. It is an excellent location if you want to be close to the University Hospital.

My grandfather booked a room here for his recent stay. Upon arriving in Calgary, he was taken directly to the hospital by ambulance due to health issues experienced during the flight.

Sounds travel way too easily between rooms and it was easy to hear activity in the next suite through the adjoining door. A women was taking clients for massage with "happy endings". I could hear details of transaction, conditions, and subsequent 'services rendered'. I will not be coming back.
