I arrived very late as part of a business trip to Banff. The front desk staff very very friendly and informative. I had not eaten in hours, and they were able to assist me in getting some very basic snack like food to tie me over to morning. Lobby was empty, but reminded me of a night club - without... More

We stayed at the Aloft for 8 nights whilst visiting family recently. We chose the aloft because of the indoor pool, proximity to the tram and the reasonable price. It did deliver on all these aspects but there were a few things that disappointed us about the Aloft. The 'free' breakfast left much to be desired. The saying ' you... More

This is the second Aloft I've stayed at and it did not disappoint. It was easy to find, with ample parking. It's a very modern hotel with a fun, young vibe. Staff at the front desk are always friendly & welcoming. Rooms are small but comfortable and tasteful. Great showers! First shower I've ever seen where you can turn the... More

A colleague and I met in the Aloft for a beer some months back and I decided I would stay on my next Calgary trip. Definitely the right move - comfortable rooms with a good breakfast. Two minutes walk to the c-train then 12 minutes to downtown. Not many restaurants around but the WXYZ bar will do a great bar... More

One of the best hotels I've ever stayed in. Staff is beyond friendly, hotel has a nice homey vibe, beds were super comfy, and breakfast on the morning was great. No complaints about this hotel at all.

Very comfortable beds, free parking and good breakfast. We stayed here because of it's close proximity to the c-train station while attending a show at the Jubilee Auditorium. Wifi was a bit slow but that doesn't shock me at any hotel.

Loved the hotel. So sorry the restaurant is now closed. Clean, comfortable and convenient. The rooms are chic and the price is right.The location is great whether you need to get downtown or north in Calgary. Not many restaurants other than Phil's or McDonald's, but there are some great Chines restaurants on 16 Ave, which is close. Perfect location if... More
