Have had a couple of stays here now. Good access to downtown. Service has always been A1. Aloft style is very "IKEA". Not for all but the beds are comfortable. A little bit more firm than those found at Sheraton or Westin. Complimentary breakfast kind of underwhelming. I believe it is only free for the month of December for platinum... More

Excellent place to stay! Right by c-train station. Clean, funky rooms. Excellent fitness facilities that even include spin/TRX classes if you want them. Amazing breakfast free for Starwood members. Staff even gave us a free chocolate bar :) Marisa in housekeeping was a gem, stopped to chat with us, super friendly! The ONLY issue was the in-room AC/heating unit (room... More

As part of the SPG hotels, Aloft Calgary is a good option to accumulate points by staying at a hotel that is well connected to downtown Calgary through the rail system and well as taxi. Expect to pay about $15 for a cab ride or $3 for the train ride. Other SPG hotels tend to be more expensive so if... More

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
