Just finished a weekend at the Calgary ALoft with our soccer team and could not be happier with the hotel. Open, airy, funky, and fun design & decor. Large rooms with ample amenities and terrific, attentive staff. Would book again in a flash and the hotel more than accommodated and welcomed our soccer team + families. Nothing beats a new,... More

I came to stay here at the last minute. I have previously stayed at Aloft in Minneapolis and when I realised I needed to make other arrangements I felt relieved that Aloft was available. The staff are friendly and exceptionally helpful. The hotel itself is funky with lots of open spaces for socialising or sitting and interacting with others -... More

My husband and I stayed at Aloft Calgary (University) during the recent Keith Urban concert. When we got the concert tickets we didn't realize it was Stampede Weekend. Very tough to get hotel rooms downtown. Because of another Tripadvisor's comments we went for it. The hotel is easily driven to when coming in from the west. I had phone problems... More

We stayed here as a family. I don't think I would do it again. The rooms, the hotel everything is very open concept which is great unless you have a 14 year old with you and any of you want privacy. It was clean the staff were great it is just not meant to be family friendly I don't think.

We stayed as a couple after I had surgery at foothills hospital. It is very cool and trendy, modern fixtures and decor. Clean and comfortable but I wouldn't bring my kids here (would ruin the vibe). Enjoyed our stay but not really for us.

We stayed at this hotel a few weeks ago and had a fantastic experience. The hotel is modern, very clean and has very comfortable beds. The lounge in the front is awesome to hang out and have a few drinks. The bacon Caesar was fantastic :) We will definitely be back.

I travel to Calgary a few times a year. I am always shocked and disappointed in what I get for the money. Imagine my surprise when I found that Aloft had opened a property near downtown and right across from the train station. Reasonable price. Free parking (in a city that charges more for parking than Manhattan). Great bar/lobby. One... More

If you were to imagine staying in a hotel by IKEA this would be it. It's very hip and the atmosphere is young a vibrant. The hotel staff are fantastic. The breakfast bar is great value and fresh. The room is right out of an IKEA show room. Very Small but comfortable and laid out nicely. Internet speed was lightning... More
