“Excellent location nice friendly staff wonderful breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Value for money almost a home away from home
we had a large multifamily group staying in this hotel for over a week in different types of suites.
The two bedroom has a large living room with dining table 4 chairs and a well equipped kitchen we often gathered together in the living room to get together and eat together.it had a sofa bed and tv and work table with lots of electrical outlets for charging mobiles and laptops. good lighting.kitchen had cooking range microwaves fridge .the master had huge king' bed and tv and the other bedroom had a full queen bed.the beds were clean and comfortable. Every day they had hot breakfast and it was never repeated for a week .lots of choice .again there was free parking and location was very good next to groceries restaurants and downtown.lots of business people as well as families were around. Gym and laundry was secured and was good
all our families were extremely happy and said hotel far exceeded their expectations.





Room Tip: A Jr suite good for business visitors two bedroom great for families

This is a real find, and I heartily recommend it as others do. it is downtown, and walking distance to almost everything including a great restaurant, Market. We had a large room, a suite, a bit of a view, and very fine.

Our team and parents stayed at the Best Western Plus Suites Downtown during a extremely busy week during the Volleyball Nationals. All staff was amazing, very polite and happy to help with anything we needed. From helping me find a pot to cook for the kids to helping me plan a photo scavenger hunt. I want to thank the staff for making my stay relaxing and fun. Everything was clean and comfortable.

This is a pretty basic hotel. Not much for amenities, rooms are very average. The location is OK. Close to downtown and a couple decent places to eat and drink within walking distance. The parking is free. Staff was OK. not bad, not great.

I just stayed at this hotel for business as my office was located across the street. While the lobby and hallways are old, the service was great at reception and my room was wonderful. King size bed was very comfortable, great view of the city in a nice, big, bright room. kitchenette was included which was handy. great towels and linens - I really couldn't complain - I was very happy with the room. the breakfast included is not just continental muffins - lots of choices - healthy or not... you can leave very full or pack a yogurt to go. My room was also very quiet on the 14th floor. I recommend room 1450 - nice corner unit at the end of the hall.

Room Tip: choose a room that ends with 50 - nice corner unit with a view of the city.

Based on what my co-workers shared with me, along with the childish behavior and poor communication skills of the GM and the front desk, we will never stay at this Best Western location again. Goes the same for any of my peers and friends visiting Calgary. Plenty of other options close by.

Dear DLi604,


We thank you for your review!

While we welcome all reviews, we are at a loss as to how to respond to you as we are unable to find you as a guest in our hotel.

We have researched our database for the last 5 year period and unable to find your name or anything similar to the name you have provided.

Are you perhaps reviewing another hotel?

We would be happy to discuss the above with you, if you would be so kind as to call me directly, at 403-209-3444 I would be happy to assist.


Regards,

George Dahbour

Very good stay - we got upgraded to a 2 bedrooms suite (we were 4 people) at our arrival. Staff was courteous, room clean and breakfast good. 5min-ish drive from the Prince Park island. Highly recommended.
