I booked 5-6 months early and asked to be on same floor as two other families we were traveling with. I even called the week prior to remind them, they assured me this would be done. When I arrived we were all placed on separate floors, they did manage to switch things around and get two of us on the... More

Paid US$350 a night during Calgary Stampede. Steep price but I guess they charge as much as they can during the 10 day event. Plus: Big suite, strong wifi Cons: 20 min walking distance to downtown (Calgary Tower) and 30 min to Stampede. Not fun when rain is bucketting down. Taxi without traffic was US$10 and with traffic double. The... More

The room was very spacious but the whole trip was spoilt by the atrocious breakfast. The room itself was tiny with lots of people crammed together. The food was almost inedible served on cardboard plates reminiscent of the workhouse. For the price they charge this aspect plus the indifferent attitude of reception staff made it overpriced. Won't be going back!

Welcome from staff was very good and we arrived late from long flight from Scotland. Free of charge breakfast was excellent. Good range of foods on offer - a must try is making your own waffles. Check out smooth and good advice on how to get to airport. Would recommend this hotel.

Great place to stay in the heart of the social side of downtown. Lots of shopping and eating to be had nearby. Hotel offers free underground secure parking, which was greatly appreciated. Staff were very friendly, with the exception of the Waffle Nazi in the dining hall.
