“My home away from home.. for a week..”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

Read many reviews of many hotels in the YYC area, and settle on the Acclaim... I was MORE than pleasantly surprised!

Original stay was for 4 nights, but after my flight was cancelled this past Saturday, I rebooked my same room for one more night... felt like coming home again..

Room was very clean... the bed felt like heaven... as did the soaker tub, while watching TV.

The staff were terrific... you felt like you were being welcomed by friends from the moment you walked in through the front doors.

Rooms had DVD players, with a great selection of movies to "borrow" in the lobby. HDTV had tons of channels to choose from.. and a alarm clock/IPOD player at the side of the bed. The Chaise lounge was perfect to have a glass of wine and watch tv from.

Pacini was delicious for breakfast... dinner.. and early afternoon wine tasting...

Will definitely be back if in Calgary again..

Thanks to Acclaim for making my business trip feel more like pleasure!

Room Tip: Choose a room away from elevators... lower room numbers,, ie: 04.. 05.. 06...

We have stayed at this hotel many times as it is extremely close to the airport. The rooms are new and stylish and very comfortable. The rooms even have a tv in the bathroom. Service has always been great as well.

We stayed here after a long flight that arrived late at night. We were happy it was so close to the airport and felt very safe there. In fact, we left most of our luggage in the car with no trouble whatsoever. I travel a lot with my job and mostly stay in Hampton Inns since they are consistent when traveling for business. I feel this is a little nicer than most of those in the States. However, rooms are smaller - but they have used the space very wisely and made it feel larger than it really is. Will stay here again if traveling to Calgary.

We were pleasantly surprised at the upscale amenities of the Acclaim.
The room was average size, but the modern comforts were above average: very comfortable bed and bedding; large flatscreen TV on the wall; two desks and a heavenly, massaging shower with super thick towels.
The well equipped gym and onsite Italian restaurant were also a plus.
The hotel is large and feels new.
Six minutes from airport with free shuttle leaving every half hour.

This property is everything you would expect from an airport hotel, minus the continental breakfast. It is clean, convenient and comfortable. We stayed two nights while visiting family that live nearby. The desk staff are friendly and helpful. Flight departures are listed in the lobby which offers free wifi and two computers for guests to use. The only suggestion I would offer is to have muffins and fresh fruit in the lobby for breakfast as it is a drive to anyplace other than their own restaurant (which we did not try). Coffee makers are in the room and fresh cold lemon water is available in the lobby.

The Acclaim is another great entry to the selection of airport hotels in Calgary. Overall, this is a clean, comfortable hotel with a sense of luxury that one doesn't often see in an airport hotel.

My room was very well-appointed, including a very luxurious bathroom featuring a TV and multiple-head shower. The entire property has a sense of modern flair. Little touches like some limited complimentary long-distance phone time push this hotel over the top.

It's certainly not the most inexpensive airport hotel, and the closure of the Barlow Trail means the location isn't quite as ideal as it was when it opened, but if you're willing to treat yourself, this is well worth the stay.

We arrived at 8 p.m. from a London flight pretty spaced-out by the jet-lag and this made a perfect, relaxing start. Excellent bed, sound-proofing and bathroom. Very pleasant and efficient service throughout we thought - people were concerned to get everything right for you. The Desk Manager even spent quite a bit of time giving us advice, ideas and hints on our planned journey through the Rockies. drawn from his own experience. Breakfast was very pleasant - we ate from the simpler 'Pronto' menu which was more than enough for our needs.
The roof deck is very pleasant and a welcome little oasis - we relaxed up there with a glass of wine watching the sunset and then I spent some time soaking in the hot-tub, to get out the travel kinks.
One of the best aspects of staying at the Acclaim was the very effective free shuttle from and to the airport - we had to go back to collect our rental car. This worked perfectly and saved us taxi costs. The Acclaim gave us just what we needed - a really comfortable, laid-back start to our touring holiday.
