“Nice and New”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

We needed to stay on the very north end of Calgary because we had to go back and forth to Airdrie several times over the weekend. The hotel is nice, it's new, clean, friendly staff - comfortable beds, all around "good". It's really close to Cross Iron Mills as well. The airport is moments away - that being said we did not hear a single plane.

I would only stay here again if we needed this location (North) as there is literally nothing else here. It's an airport hotel in an industrial area.

Again, the staff here are really really good. Very friendly and helpful. I couldn't find a parking spot and one of the fine gentleman at the front desk moved a vehicle (his perhaps?) so that we would have a place to park. Some hotel staff (not here) can seem tired of travellers and uninterested in customer service - this was not the case a the Acclaim - they have some top notch employees on staff (cleaners too).

Bonus: The hotel restaurant is quite good. We enjoyed our meal, it is decorated beautifully and the service was well above average.

One more thing: if it were my hotel I would improve the lighting in the rooms. There are lots of lights but the led light bulbs are a bit harsh which does nothing for the decorum.

Room Tip: The 2 queen rooms have no fridge / The rooms with fridges only have one queen bed - it's one or...

We took our friend there and they were very happy with everything.
The restaurant was excellent and the grill for the bread was lots if fun.The selection was also
outstanding, and our waitress was also very pleasant and helpful to our out of town guests.

The hotel is new and the rooms are fantastic! tends to be a bit pricey but is still great value as it is close to the airport. We also used the park and stay service, the hotel offers a shuttle to and from the airport which we found very convenient as it is less than a 5 minute drive to the airport and they are very prompt in picking you up when you arrive back in Calgary airport

We needed to stay at a Hotel close to the airport cause our flight was leaving early in the morning. The rooms are very nice and clean!!
They have robes for your to wear in the rooms to go to the hot tub which is on the ROOF!!..
Very nice and hot.We watched the air planes come and go.Drank some wine
Then we went to the Italian restaurant which is attached to the hotel soooo good.
They have a free shuttle to the airport which was quite convienient.For being so close to the airport we never heard any sounds airplanes in our room at all!!
This Hotel beats the Rimrock Hotel in Banff by a long shot!!
This has been one of the nicest Hotels i have stayed at in a while!!
Will come back the next time we are in Calgary for sure!!

Room Tip: Rooms are so so nice!!

We needed a hotel after dropping off our rental car at the airport. The Acclaim shuttle arrived and we asked the driver if we could get a ride to the hotel. He phoned to confirm that a room was available and then drove us there. The hotel was about three minutes from the airport, yet we never heard the planes in our room. Th front desk staff were helpful and friendly. the service was excellent. This really felt like a 4 star place at a 3 star rate. All the little touches were just perfect; thngs like a nail file inthe bathroom and luxury soaps/shampoo, even a robe for going up to the roof-top pool and hot tub! We really felt pampered. Oh yes, and an Italian restaurant with a bread grill topped it all off.

This hotel is conveniently close to Calgary Airport with a free shuttle bus (why does that Airport site the phones for hotel courtesy buses outside? guaranteed to freeze guests in Albertan winters) and is efficiently run with pleasant staff. Its design is fairly utilitarian, though the bedrooms are reasonable well equipped. A so called Italian is attached to the hotel and serves entirely predictable and ordinary fare, though again the staff help make the experience of eating there at least bearable. When I stayed, the hotel seemed full and building is going on to increase its size, but were it not for its convenience for the airport I cannot imagine that extra accommodation would be needed.

Room Tip: Try to stay away from the elevators and ice machines

Stewart27, General Manager at Acclaim Hotel Calgary Airport, responded to this review, October 30, 2012
The demand for lodging in Calgary is quite strong and we feel our 102 new rooms and suites being developed will be well received in the market. The new wing, opening June 2013, will also provide our guests with 6000 sq/f event space and additional retail options conveniently located just off the main lobby. Additionally, with our new heated parkade our guest will not have to endure those cold Alberta winters when parking at Acclaim Hotel.

I was surprised at how nice this hotel is! Checking in was a friendly process and our room more than met our expectations. The room is was not huge but the way they have built to organize everything it felt very luxurious. It is very cleverly built and it feels like a upgraded room compared to many hotels. The shower had a rain shower head and nozzles all the way down the wall, There is also a tv in the bathroom. Every single space is used very cleverly. The keurig coffee pot is a nice touch. The chaise lounger was comfortable as well as the alarm clock charged my iPhone which was nice. The roof top hot tub was our favourite place! It is set up so nicely that we will be back just for the hotel when we want a little get away. Highly recommended. Comfortable King bed as well.

Room Tip: Make sure you use the roof top hot tub!
