I stayed only one night but the location is fantastic if you're visiting the University of Calgary. Parking is an extra charge but is in a covered parkade, which is good if the weather is bad. Free phone calls locally and within Canada; free wifi; and continental breakfast included (fruit, pastries, hard-boiled eggs, toast, coffee, and tea) in the restaurant off the lobby. Restaurant does serve lunch, but don't expect full hotel food service (no room service, for example). There is a bar off the lobby but it seemed to be closed when I got back to my hotel at 9 pm on a Friday night; actually not a bad thing for a campus hotel because the noise could've been awful. Nice amenities in the room (coffee and tea; shampoo etc in bathroom). My room was tiny and I could have used a reading light on the bedside table, but there was a good-sized desk, TV, bar fridge, and microwave. Staff can arrange access to the rec facilities (pool etc.) which are right across the street, for an extra charge. Very friendly and helpful staff at the front desk.
