Fairly typical BW experience with dated room décor and marginal front-desk service, but the location is accessible and fantastic, the sizes of the 2-bed suites generous, and having a full kitchen and excellent Wi-Fi are very handy. Lots of free parking; however despite the suites all having balconies, none are usable. Beds are excellent though, sleep quality was terrific!

While the hotel has several good features we were very unhappy at the end. During the last two weeks we had two different reservations as we travelled to Edmonton and then returned to Calgary to the same hotel.

My wife and I stayed here for one night while vacationing in the Banff area. We had an excellent room up on the 8th floor which provided a splendid view of the downtown area. As well, that particular day saw a thunder storm that released an enormous amount of water on the Calgary streets. That in itself was quite a... More

We took two nights to recover from flight. This hotel was good value and easy to walk to main areas of town. Large room and very comfortable big bed. Included breakfast gave limited choice but plenty to fill up for the day. Rather dated but more than adequate.

A nice hotel. Lovely room and a good breakfast. Staff were friendly and helpful, we arrived late at night and they recommended a good bar which served food. I would visit again. They were happy for us to leave our luggage after we had checked out whilst visiting the city and before picking our car up.
