“Loved it. Great family overnight.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Great value for the price, and super pools and slide for the kids. We had a wonderful reception from the staff, lots of help with anything we needed, easy parking. The rooms were clean and quiet, with beautiful sheets and towels. The breakfast brunch was absolutely top notch - something for everyone and reasonable for the great selection. It's close to lots of shopping, Okotoks (where we had some gallery business for the day) and to downtown Calgary if you need to hop in there for some upscale dining. We would stay again. Thank you for a memorable "stay cation".

Room Tip: We stayed on the top floor with a view to the south - very nice!

Stayed one night at the Delta Calgary South for last minute plans to attend a concert in Calgary. Booked our room with Aeroplan points. Front desk staff friendly and efficient. Room was nice, with a comfy queen bed and sofa bed. Quite nice for a Delta room, which is their standard room. Bathroom had a beautiful deep tub and great shower head!
Another short, but sweet trip. Would recommend this hotel and will definately be back!

Visiting my son and his wife.... Very friendly front desk... everyone!! No problem getting coffee or towels etc. We clean up after ourselves.... but the room was very clean... with the naked eye :P
We just spent the last 4 days in the ModeDeluxe Room, 1 King, Pull-out . Newly renovated room, for more money... The layout and bed were great. New bathroom with shower glass door stall. Mic and fridge, coffee maker, iron, hair dryer.
A nice large TV on the wall. THE TV REMOTE SUCKED... did I just scream that... sorry :P No channel jump (from a good show to another tween commercials) , no guide (whats on overlall), no channel information (what am I watching) and mostly NOT HD!
The room was supposed to be updated to today technologies. The desk is hook up directly to the TV... it has this neat looking assortment of cables for your pc, gaming etc... except apple. As far as gaming... Not enough broadband (wireless or by Ethernet cable) to play xbox live or to pull up data from work. So Close!!
Oh and I would not recommend the pub (attached but separate) for food.
I don't appreciate how my rate would jump on Sunday night from the other days... I don't care what the industry thinks... I want to pay the same price for the same room for all 4 days... Period. I would go again and thank you.

Thanks for your review, we always appreicate hearing the good and the bad, it helps us improve. Great news is that we are awaiting arrival of new wireless Internet access points. (On order as we speak.) This should remedy the Internet issues and bring us to having some of the fastest Internet access available in a hotel. In regards to the channel giude, our cable provider discontinued the "television guide" channel, we're in process of designing a channel directory for guests to assist, should have that in in the next few weeks. As for the HD and remotes? More upgrades on the horizon, unfortunatly no firm timeline, but in the works for later this year. (A new remote has been designed by Delta Hotels and Resorts especially for our SmartDesk/TV set up.) Thanks again for sharing your review and hopefully we'll have the upgrades in place prior to your next visit.

I came for the family long weekend to calgary and was very happy with my stay! Very clean hotel and the bed are incredibly comfortable. Staff was very accommodating with even the little things like getting me my receipt up to my room from the restaurant (which is also great, even with a 16 month old and a 3 year old) because my 16 month old decided to melt down lol. And I like the fact that there were 2 pools in the hotel (one with a waterside). The hotel was also very convenient for shopping as well.

I would definitely recommend staying !

We were in Calgary for a funeral and picked this hotel based on the location with regards to where we would be going. The staff are very friendly and the hotel is clean, but like others have mentioned it is dated with some ok updates. We didn't use the pools but I can completely understand why a family might take their kids because the waterslide seemed to be enjoyed.

We ate in the restaurant the one morning and it was pretty good, standard hotel breakfast for the standard price. It is a big hotel with a skywalk in between the two buildings but you do check-in in the Tower building.

I really don't have anything negative to say about this hotel. If I could make one recommendation it would be that they patrol their parking lot. It is near impossible to park in some of the spots because of the parking jobs that other people have done that essentially take up two spots.

Room Tip: You should probably find out which building you are in...the Tower building has the waterslide in it...

My husband and I went here for his birthday. The check in was very easy with great staff working the front desk! I mentioned that we were there for a birthday and shortly after getting into our room - we had a delivery of a hand written birthday card and a birthday treat from the lady who checked me in! I was so blown away by this - thank you very much to the hotel!

As for the room itself we stayed in a modedeluxe king suite and it was nicely designed, but housekeeping really missed a lot of cleaning in the bathroom. The shower floor had mildew on it, dirty counters and dirty cups with finger prints all over them. The toilet made an awful noise when you flushed it and would have ran all night had we not switched off the water in between uses. Having used Delta's many times in the past, I was slightly disappointed by this - but realize that it is an older hotel.

The TV system really needs some updating as it is a very annoying system. There is no guide to find out what is on - so you have to go through every channel one at a time. Then, once you've checked the channel you can't go back to the previous menu - you have to start all over again for every channel. Good Wi-fi connection though!

The room was a great value, and it included appetizers when we got there and breakfast in the morning - which was great! Again, very friendly staff and good food. All in all it was a pretty good stay.

Room Tip: If choosing the modedeluxe rooms - go with the special edition - the bonus appies and breakfast are...

Thank you for sharing your review Tina P. Please accept our apologies for the shortfalls you experienced along with our sincere assurance we have shared it with our maintenance and housekeeping teams for follow up. In addition, based on your feedback, we are going to produce a Channel Line Up Card that will be located on the desk in each room to make finding desired channels for guests much easier. (Until now, we have housed this in our guest directories, but we realize that is not the most convenient location.) Thanks again for your feedback, it has facilitated change that will benefit future guests.

My husband and I have stayed at the Delta Calgary south before so we stayed again. The girls at the front desk were very friendly and always smiling. Our room was very clean and modern. We enjoyed a great dinner at the Boomtown pub which is connected to the hotel. And we always enjoy the hot tub and waterslide ! This hotel has pet friendly rooms which is great because we often travel with our dogs. I would highly recommend this hotel !

Room Tip: Rooms in the tower are closer to the main lobby and pool
