we had to be in Calgary for a wedding and I noticed that the venue was not too far from MacLeod Trail. When researching places to stay, I decided to book the Holiday Inn, as we've stayed at HI's before and always like them.
The check in was a breeze and the receptionist was very friendly.
The room was good, although ,a bit boring maybe, nothing special. I was actually surprised there was no fridge or microwave in the room. We were also provided with 3 towels, no face cloths or hand towels.
The biggest disappointment was the fact that breakfast is not included, not even a continental breakfast. I mean, we paid $145 (including tax) for just a room without any extra's?
I won't say I will never stay at an HI again, but next time if we need a hotel in this area of the city, I'll choose another one.
