We stayed here for a hockey game in October 2013. Very convenient to the Saddledome. Cab ride was about $8 each way. We chose this hotel because all the downtown hotels seemed to be twice the price (yikes!). The hotel faces McLeod Drive in front and has the C-Train track out back. If you're a light sleeper I'm sure this could be a bother, but we didn't really hear much noise at all.
The building has some wear and tear, but we found the rooms to be really clean with pleasant décor. Our room had two comfy queens, a small fridge, microwave, ironing board, and hair dryer. The room had lots of space - enough for both a desk and a table with two extra chairs.
Breakfast was nice: eggs, sausage, pancakes, oatmeal, cereal, yogurt, pastries, fruit, coffee, tea, juice. Served from 6:00 to 10:00. We went about 8:30 and had the breakfast room to ourselves.
Pool was very basic, but again, nice and clean. They have a main pool and a small kiddie pool as well as a hot tub. We swam for an hour the morning before we checked out and did not see another soul.
We thought this hotel was a really good value (for a weekday stay near downtown Calgary), and would stay here again, for sure. The location is just outside the downtown core, without the ridiculous weekday prices. We had our own vehicle, and drove downtown for some sightseeing. The time from the hotel to a parking spot just off Centre Street was about 8 minutes flat.
We had a fourth-floor room on the back (east-facing) side of the property. We did not hear any nois...
