We stayed as a family and were part of a larger group. The staff was accommodating and the location was perfect. Close to 16 Ave & Crowchild Trail. The Wxyz Bar had great ambiance and excellent menu items. The rooms were newly decorated and funky. The kids/teens enjoyed the pool, games area and pool table. The hotel served our group... More

I really enjoyed my stay here, a great location for one night. Ample parking, great customer service and very easy to access. I would definitely stay again, especially when needing a hotel close to the university. Charmaine Hammond PAWS Across Canada Tour

We thoroughly enjoyed our time. The service was excellent. Kristina at the front desk went above and beyond in making us feel welcome. we stayed two nights. It is very convenient to University of Calgary, and the best of the choices in the hotel strip.

This was our second stay at an A Loft and it was a good experience both times. We just needed a place for one night for our family on the back end of a vacation to be close to the airport for a flight the next day. Our kids loved the pool table and nice indoor pool. All was clean... More

The front desk staff provided the best service a hotel guest could ask for. The hotel staff knows exactly where all the close restaurants are and where to go for sight-seeing. I was greeted by my first name every morning and every evening when I returned. Near a train station, the hotel is very close to downtown Calgary and local... More

Have had a couple of stays here now. Good access to downtown. Service has always been A1. Aloft style is very "IKEA". Not for all but the beds are comfortable. A little bit more firm than those found at Sheraton or Westin. Complimentary breakfast kind of underwhelming. I believe it is only free for the month of December for platinum... More

Excellent place to stay! Right by c-train station. Clean, funky rooms. Excellent fitness facilities that even include spin/TRX classes if you want them. Amazing breakfast free for Starwood members. Staff even gave us a free chocolate bar :) Marisa in housekeeping was a gem, stopped to chat with us, super friendly! The ONLY issue was the in-room AC/heating unit (room... More

As part of the SPG hotels, Aloft Calgary is a good option to accumulate points by staying at a hotel that is well connected to downtown Calgary through the rail system and well as taxi. Expect to pay about $15 for a cab ride or $3 for the train ride. Other SPG hotels tend to be more expensive so if... More

This hotel is a great location with the Ctrain about a minute away. For cold nights like tonight, it's great that they offer underground parking for an additional price too. The room and hotel décor is lovely, with a modern and sleek feel. I was here only for two nights for business and did not get to try the pool... More
