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

Nice to have another option for a SPG property in Calgary. This one in on the Hotel Strip off 16th Avenue North/Transcanada Hwy. Not terribly central, but relatively close to downtown. The staff were very nice and accommodating. They offered to get me into a King size bed if I could wait, but I just wanted to hit the hay,... More

From the first breathe of the front desk staff's great attitude, to the casual yet chill bar; you know you're in for a great stay. A nice relaxing pool for soaking gently, and billiard table to get your mind off whatever it is you need to do. My room was 206, large, spacious, and with the most amazing shower. Everything... More

A few of us stayed here to attend the Comicon. Loved the location and we took the C-Train to our venue. The hotel was very cool. We loved the lobby and the staff were really great!

Stayed on business. Great location. Easy parking and access to train. Bed very comfy. Stayed on the main floor with no noise issue because it was during the week I'm guessing. Big plus for me is the lack of children running down the halls. Walkin shower was nice but there was some poor drainage issues that caused the water to... More

We arrived on the fourth day this hotel was open. The evening staff were friendly. We were the first people to use this room. I feel confident in saying this as the bathroom did not flush properly.
