This is a very fun new Hotel. Very funky open concept bar/pool/lounge area. Super modern rooms with huge walkin showers and pocket doors to the washrooms. If you are in Calgary for fun this Hotel could be for you. the lounge can be quite loud but I didn't hear any of it from my room. It's Right by the Stadium... More

Spent 12 nights at the Aloft. Initially it was only planned for 2 nights but my project was extended and I was happy to continue to stay at the Aloft. Staff was great and very friendly. Very clean, good practical location, 12 minutes to downtown.

Was in Calgary for the weekend with my son for a COT event at Canadan Olympic Park. Hotel was less than a 10 min drive from COP in a great location. There aren't a lot of parking stalls available, however the staff went above and beyond to personally go outside with me and find a spot. I secured a great... More

Did you ever stay in a hotel that had everything you need for your stay? This is NOT that hotel. In fact we composed a list of things about this hotel that drove us crazy: way overpriced, rooms have view of the parking lot or dark alley (you pick), cold breakfast that was supposed to be hot, substandard food quality,...

What a great experience! We made a reservation for 3 days, prepaid, but last minute decided that we would only stay 2 and check in one day later than expected. I emailed less than 24 hours before we were originally scheduled to check in and explained the situation. Obviously we were in the wrong and I only wanted to make... More

I booked this hotel last minute...the day I was leaving for Calgary to see the Cirque du Soleil show...and hoped for the best! We were not disappointed! The funky, modern design of Aloft made our stay so much fun! I came with my 24 year old son and he really enjoyed the techno design. From the lobby to the room,... More

We enjoyed out two night stay at the Aloft. Very funky, modern design. Staff was pleasant and efficient. Good home base location for trips around Calgary. Lobby, lounge and pool were well appointed. Small self-serve restaurant (pay as you go) that appeared well stocked. The room was small but efficient. Beds and bedding were very comfortable. Small bar fridge worked... More

This hotel was great. Everything was so clean and colorful and the staff were extremely friendly. Our dog even received her own bed for her stay. I would love if coffee were available earlier in the morning, but that was my only issue :) Everything here was wonderful during our 3 day stay.

Our ringette team from Manitoba was forced to stay at this hotel as it was a "host hotel". This hotel is not accommodating and is not prepared to have sports teams. The staff are rude and unprepared. As a lifetime gold Starwood member, It is the worst Starwood hotel I have ever stayed at. There were mix ups in the... More

I used to stay at this hotel for years under it's prior owners. It was purchased and gutted. The new hotel is very artsy and flashy. All new rooms, halls, pool, bar, restaurant, and family area. The rooms were small but very nice. Huge showers and beds. The pool was smaller but heated. No hot tub or Jacuzzi rooms any... More
