We stayed three nights here with our four-year old.
This is a nicely renovated Westin with a great location, halfway between the central shopping areas and the Eau Claire Market and river parks. At the time of booking, we received a third-night free promotion that made our stay here a decent value - otherwise, it can be extremely expensive as Calgary is a popular business destination with hotel pricing to match.
The overall design follows the Westin formula, with an understated spa-like ambience and businesslike service that suited our family fine. Our deluxe two-queen room was extremely spacious and had lots of space for the little one to move about in. Fixtures and other amenities were all up-to-date and top notch - including in-room Starbucks coffee, which I always appreciate. The bathroom was nicely done, and Westin's trademark Heavenly beds, showers, and robes were all present and accounted for.
The rooftop pool and gym are notable, with wraparound views of the city. As we stayed during a relatively quiet time, we often had the entire facility to ourselves. It was very memorable spending an hour or two up there as a family, enjoying the pool, hot tub, sunshine, and fabulous views of the skyline in complete privacy.
We ordered room service a couple of times, which was costly, but offered good food and relatively generous portions.
Overall, this is a fine city hotel in a great location. For business travel, this would be one of my top choices in Calgary. If you can find a discounted rate or promotion for your leisure stay, I would also jump on it.
