Booked online and it was all very smooth. Arrived and the lobby wasn't only clean, it smelled CLEAN!! It was so nice to see and smell that! They even have a water dish in the front entrance for those furry travellers. =) Staff was very friendly and helpful. Service was quick as well. The lobby has a pool table and... More

Much surprised. A gem in Calgary. Small but very functional rooms. Everything one needs in the rooms a modern look. Never slept in a more comfortable bed. Professional and engaging staff. A great find for us

The staff here are very helpful, making sure our needs were met, and even gave us a welcome package for our anniversary. Rooms are very unique, beds very comfy. Only issue we had was the keyless check-in not working - got locked out of our room!

I stayed here for 2 nights when my daughter's university hockey team traveled to Calgary for the national championships. Though it gives out a very young vibe it was equally comfortable for a parent. The "young folks" enjoyed using the pool table and board games in the lobby, while I liked the reading area next to the fireplace. The onsite... More

I like modern decor for a change when traveling, and this place feels trendy when you walk in. The staff was very friendly. The snack options plenty and reasonably priced as soon as you walk in too (and I was starving, so this was great!). The bar, pool, and pool table all looked lovely. Wish I could have stayed longer...

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
