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

I recently stayed at the Aloft and have been at this property before. I travel frequently and try to stay with Starwood Hotels whenever possible. The staff are always very welcoming and I like how they recognize me and remember me when I check in. I am an SPG loyalty member as I love collecting the points and redeeming for... More

I always find Calgary hotels expensive and lacking amenities. I found the Aloft a funky friendly boutique hotel. It was very reasonably priced, great atmosphere and all the amenities. I will stay there the next time I visit

I stayed 1 night at the Aloft on October 27, 2014. On the whole, this is a nice hotel. I think my review score might have been higher if I had stayed in a different room in the hotel. I would return for another stay. First off, the hotel is new. I estimate less than a year old. So all... More

We should have known something was a bit off and it took 30 minutes for them to figure out our reservation and check us in. It looked like an upbeat urban look kind of fun and inviting. The lounge is great as are the bartending staff. The signature cocktail bar Mohjitos are terrific. The place seemed like an upbeat funky... More

First off, we have stayed in a couple of Aloft hotels in the USA, and it seems like this one isn't the same. When I first checked in there was very loud music, it was almost impossible to hear the desk clerk. Apparently the pool and lounge had been booked for a private event for the whole weekend. The music... More

We're here with a team for an important competition. 9:15 pm - Stuck in the bathroom because the sliding door can't be opened from either the inside or outside. Thank goodness there were two of us in the room so one could call the front desk for help. It took two employees to get the door slide open so he... More

This boutique hotel was a nice surprise in all aspects. The lobby is very tastefully modern with excellent front desk staff. The rooms are small but very chic and exceptionally clean, especially the bathroom. There are an ample number of plug ins available to charge all of the techno gadgets you own. The wifi access was strong and we never... More

Stayed there 2 nights and the rooms and very comfortable and they have all the amenities you need. The pool area is amazingly relaxing. The bar area is ok, almost no place to sit that was comfortable, lots of really hard sofas or plastic chairs. Their restaurant is on the 2nd floor, at the back of the hotel in a... More

The hotel is very clean and it seems relatively new. The room was larger than other hotels I have been to and the bathroom was big. They had a nice bar right in the lobby which they invited us to a party there but did not attend. I liked their green program where if you did not use any housekeeping... More
