This is the place to be! Great service and well decorated rooms. Their attention to detail was impressive. They did almost no wrong during our short stay. Definitely would love to go back to this hotel.

Empty beer cans in room from previous tenants as well as very loud music throughout the night made the stay below average, lobby staff however were kind and courteous, overall if I was back in the region I would not be staying here again

A Grand Old Hotel with welcoming staff, right in downtown Cagary. The room was spacious with all that you would expect from a world class hotel. The bathroom was luxurious with an enormous shower and the walk in wardrobe was an extra bonus. I have stayed here before but this was even better.

We only stayed one night. Our room was a suite with the smallest bathroom I think I have ever had in any hotel. The room was clean and nicely appointed. Make sure you check to be sure the room is not overlooking the railroad tracks. It can be noisy. Staff at check in was very good!

I think it was overpriced and rooms somewhat dated. Great location though. Very clean. Bed comfortable with good linens, just didn't care for decor. You can walk to pretty much anything you want to do. Lots of great pubs and restaurants and tins of shopping right there. Calgary tower right next door too.

Great hotel close to a lot of good downtown attractions and restaurants. The hotel is very nice. Comfortable rooms just the right size and amazing beds. We ate at the hotel one night for dinner and the food was priced fairly and tasted great. We were unable to use the spa as they were booked.

Beautiful hotel and always great service. Love the interior of the lobby. Swimming pool was amazing as it kept a smile on my son's face. Would definitely make this my hotel of choice to stay in Calgary.

Overcrowded-Lack of Proper Staff-Old and Rundown. 3 of 4 elevators not working-Long Waits. Room-worn and rundown. Shower difficult to operate, and danger of scalding due to location of valves (Valve location does not meet US building Codes). Air conditioning very noisy. Understaffed and overcrowded. Concierge knowledgeable after long wait.

The staff was uniformly helpful in responding to our questions and in making recommendations about restaurants, walks, hiking, currency conversions, providing information about gluten free eating in Calgary. Would stay there again without looking further
