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

I booked this hotel last minute...the day I was leaving for Calgary to see the Cirque du Soleil show...and hoped for the best! We were not disappointed! The funky, modern design of Aloft made our stay so much fun! I came with my 24 year old son and he really enjoyed the techno design. From the lobby to the room,... More

We enjoyed out two night stay at the Aloft. Very funky, modern design. Staff was pleasant and efficient. Good home base location for trips around Calgary. Lobby, lounge and pool were well appointed. Small self-serve restaurant (pay as you go) that appeared well stocked. The room was small but efficient. Beds and bedding were very comfortable. Small bar fridge worked... More

This hotel was great. Everything was so clean and colorful and the staff were extremely friendly. Our dog even received her own bed for her stay. I would love if coffee were available earlier in the morning, but that was my only issue :) Everything here was wonderful during our 3 day stay.

Our ringette team from Manitoba was forced to stay at this hotel as it was a "host hotel". This hotel is not accommodating and is not prepared to have sports teams. The staff are rude and unprepared. As a lifetime gold Starwood member, It is the worst Starwood hotel I have ever stayed at. There were mix ups in the... More

I used to stay at this hotel for years under it's prior owners. It was purchased and gutted. The new hotel is very artsy and flashy. All new rooms, halls, pool, bar, restaurant, and family area. The rooms were small but very nice. Huge showers and beds. The pool was smaller but heated. No hot tub or Jacuzzi rooms any... More

I always appreciate a clean and modern hotel, and the Aloft did not disappoint. Unlike other more tired luxury chains, everything about this hotel was modern and effective. The decor was just trendy enough to be interesting without being over the top. I stay at many hotels around the world, and can say that this one is highly recommended. It... More

I stayed at the Aloft in Calgary for 3 nights from Feb 26-28 along with my daughter and granddaughter. They had stayed there before to attend speed skating meets at the Oval. I found the rooms modern, clean and comfortable. The beds, pillows and bedding were excellent quality and I slept well. If you wanted a bathtub you were out... More

Stayed 2nd week of March. Parking good, reception were fast and courteous, paint scheme little overbearing. Trying to have place with sixty flair, this i liked. Rooms good sized with all needed ammenties. Only real problem was with breakfast had to pay if wanted anything, just guessing for cost could afford a continental breakfast.

Stayed overnight at Aloft as they had a very special deal - 4 course dinner at Swirl Indian restaurant and free cocktails at WXYZ Lounge/bar. We were greeted promptly and they had all the information covered - reminding us about our dinner reservations and we were given extra chocolates at check-in. The bedroom was spotless - everything was in great... More
