“A lovely Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2010

I stayed at this hotel for a couple of nights with my toddler while visiting family. The room was attractive and very clean (sheets, carpet, bathroom). The people at the front desk were helpful and friendly. My daughter loved their pool and waterslide. The free breakfast was tasty and fresh. We would definitely stay here again.

Just a quick trip to Calgary from Sask for a Firefighting interview. Staff at the from desk were always smiling and quickly anwered all our questions. The lady in charge of the breakfast went above and beyond what she is paid to do. She cared!

I booked my room on the hotel website and recieved and printed off my confirmation, but when my family and I arrived at the hotel there was no record of my reservation at the front desk. The staff was very helpful, but admitted that if you book online you should always contact the hotel directly an hour or so later to confirm that they recieved the reservation. Apparently there has been regular problems with the system. Luckily they were able to locate us a room but the kids had to share a hide-a-bed, which would not have been a big deal except the bed was torn out at the end and the matress hung through the frame to the floor. Since there was no other room, we put up with it, and did not recieve a discount. The waterslide is fun but the pool is very small and the jets did not work in the hot tub. Breakfast was very good, and the room was overall clean, warm, and quiet. This hotel is out of the way and is a $60 taxi ride from the airport, and they did not offer any shuttle service to cover this.

I was impressed by the staff at this hotel. There was always a smiling face at the desk to help and the staff went to great lengths to accommodate us. I was there with 7 other people and we all had a great experience with this hotel. I wouldn't call it a luxurious hotel - the decor is quite dated and there is nothing romantic about the hotel but if you are staying for business or just visiting friends from Calgary (which we were) then it's a convenient place to stay.

Overall a solid hotel, rooms are a little older but extremely big and spacious. Service is great and there is tons of restaurant around the area. Restaurnat adjcent on the parking lot is not recommended. Free breakfast in the morning is a pretty good spread, free printing in the business center, free internet access = great for business traveler.

Hadassah28's Jun 2008 review “It's the little touches that make this property a real find!” is one of the most complete I've read. I stayed one night in Sept; I'll add my 2 cents.

You really do need to have the hotel's instructions on how to get to hotel! A minor point, but this hotel's slightly modified name is Wingate by Wyndham; previously it was simply Wingate Inn.

I also had a 2room suite as a free upgrade. No full-size dining table, just a small 4 seater. A few stains on chairs and rug, but otherwise good housekeeping.

The closet had a key-controlled safe. There were trilights in some light fixtures.

Use your room access card for both the fitness room door and pool/whirlpool door (6 am to 10 pm). The hotel gym, besides a treadmill, eliptical trainer, and freeweights, has a stationary bike, ball, 2 weight stations, flat panel tv, fan, clock, but nothing to clean the equipment. Both this room and the pool had lots of towels.

The pool was too cool a tempature to really enjoy, and it's too small to do lengths. The whirlpool next to it was also too cool. There's changerooms in the pool area, but only one shower (which is along the wall next to the waterslide). I suspect the waterslide gets limited use; this hotel's target is businesspeople, not families.

The free breakfast is similar to Holiday Inn Express including a few hot items, but has make-your-own waffles instead of warm cinnamon rolls .

Hallways are spacious. Ice machines and $1.50 canned pop machines are next to the elevator on floors 2, 3, 4. Avis is next to the main floor elevator.

I used the free highspeed on one of the 2 computers in the 24 hr Business Ctr. The room had a few more supplies than typical.

The coin laundry had 2 washers, 2 dryers, and soap and dryer sheets for sale in a vending machine there. Posted are the washer and dryer cycle times.

  • Liked — quiet & comfortable
  • Disliked — in the far south end of Calgary

A large two-room suite, a full-size dining table, two TVs (with great reception), a microwave, a refrigerator, coffe maker with Wolfgang Puck coffee pods, comfortable beds, climate controls (that are a cinch to use), and illuminated light switches, not to mention an outstanding front desk staff, all make the Wingate Inn in Calgary a wonderful choice for business or leisure travel.

We travel a great deal and have stayed at everything from holes-in-the-wall to palatial suites. The Wingate Inn falls somewhere in the upper 75%.

The hotel is a little hard to get to, especially if you are traveling the Deerfoot Trail in rush hour (hint: if at all possible avoid this major Calgary roadway between 4 and 6 PM or expect to crawl along, and I mean, CRAWL.)

The Inn is tucked out of the way at the southern end of Calgary, but it is not inconvenient. The Somerset LRT (light rapid transit) is nearby, as are many major grocery stores, restaurants, and even a movie theater - they are all just across the street. (Hint: Get a tiny map from the front desk - or you won't know how to get across the very busy Macleod Trail as it is fenced all the way down for several blocks.)

Speaking of the front desk, you won't find nicer more helpful people. Claire was on when we were there; she should give lessons on how to be of service to hotel guests.

The hotel has a small gym with treadmill, eliptical trainer, and weights. The pool area has a moderate sized pool, whirlpool, and a big curly waterslide. Pool and gym hours are 6 AM to 10 PM.

Breakfast ("expanded continental") is FREE! There's not much you get free anymore these days. It's served in a roomy breakfast area, just off the front lobby, from 6-10 AM weekdays, and 7-11 AM on weekends.

Just a few steps away from the hotel is the Darby Arms. Go here for a quick bite or a pint of ale. Again, very friendly service, and the apple crumble is tasty.

For a full restaurant meal, you must go across the street where you'll find a huge array of all the popular restaurants.

If you are traveling to downtown, be sure to leave yourself plenty of time because Macleod Trail is very busy in the morning. Locals advised we leave at least 1 1/2 hours before we needed to be at our destination.

The Wingate is only 7 years old and still has a fresh new feel. Everything including common areas and hallways are very clean and designed for comfort.

Internet is a breeze - link up in your room FREE of charge or use the Business Centre (it has 2 stations).

There is even a guest laundry with complimentary laundry soap and dryer sheets.

An AVIS rental car agency is also just off the lobby.

This is an extremely good choice for both the leisure traveler or the business person. You will find this home-away-from-home both relaxing and comfortable.

If traveling from the North, remember the Wingate Inn is located way at the southern end of the city. But the price is right, and the room is worth the trip. Just don't travel the Deerfoot in rush hour.

  • Liked — Very clean, great amenities, large suite, awesome front desk staff!
  • Disliked — Location and proximity to downtown.
