My husband and I stayed here for 3 days while home renovations were being completed. Aloft is a pet friendly hotel, apparently the only one in the motel village area. We felt like we were in a high end hostel for the most part except we didn't have to share the bathroom. We stayed in room 142, it was clean... More

Stayed here for one night, got a deal on Priceline. I called to check if we could get a room with 2 beds and the call centre person was less than helpful but when we arrived the staff were very accommodating. The beds were comfy, it was clean and quiet. Kids loved the pool. When we first walked in it... More

This hotel is awesome, trendy,clean,and friendly. My bf and I booked for one night since he had a meeting down town in the morning. They have a good check in and check our time 3(in),12(out). Those times are important when you want to just relax. The room was so nice and affordable my bf asked if we should stay another... More

This property used to be the Quality Inn University which has received a complete makeover while constructing a major addition over the last three years. This is our first visit since re-opening as Aloft and we were very pleased with our stay. Staff is very welcoming, the games room area just off the front lobby is an excellent touch. The... More

My husband and I are currently staying at aloft for 4 days for a wedding. We asked for a room at the back as suggested. It is clean, quiet and comfortable. Love the bed. We had our 3 daughters visit with their children and their pool area was a good space for us to visit and have pizza. The front... More

Stayed here recently for one night, and I was very pleasantly surprised with the hotel/stay (exceeded my expectations)! This is a recently renovated/remodeled hotel, which is very clean and modern inside. Definitely the nicest hotel in the area now! Room is very well sized and appointed. Very new, modern, and practical design. King size bed was great. Free WIFI (no... More

I would stay at this location again in a heartbeat. The place is nice, new, friendly. Rooms are clean, comfy and beautifully and simply designed. The indian restaurant had delicious food, the cute indoor small pool was a great place to relax. The bar had a great drink menu, unfortunately closed too early for our liking. There is a 24hr...

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
