I stayed here as a close friend was recovering at the Foothills Medical Centre. The location is very convenient and the property is comfortable and fun. The rooms are clean and roomy. The food is good and priced well. The staff could use a little more training and be more helpful.

I just stayed here for a brief stopover but wish I had come in the night before to sample the multinational cuisine at their restaurant. I had a very good sleep because of the ingeniously designed blackout blind the fits into the window exactly so no light leaks out. Very clean and awesome bath products provided (and I hate hotel...

This was my first visit to this brand within the Starwood family. The Calgary hotel is pretty new and as soon as you enter the lobby area you know you are somewhere different. The lobby area is located in what is the centre of the hotel which is a large open space with the swimming pool at far end. Also...

We have stayed here many times since they first opened. At least 3 times per year. The first stay was fantastic and we were impressed with how bright, clean and colorful it was. However in each successive trip we have noticed the hotel show rapid signs of decay. The front desk are either really good or really bad. There are...

The decor of the hotel is very unique - modern and colourful kitschy-art style. The concept is appealing to the eye. The pool/party-room was great! The rooms are comfortable and quiet, though the decor does give the bedroom a 'cold' feel visually. Overall, the hotel is a good one pricewise, and you get a breakfast as part of your stay.

We stayed at this hotel because it is marketed as a boutique hotel and wanted to see what that definition meant. Well it means just enough to get by........ The rooms were very sparse and minimalistic, but quite comfortable. One of the biggest cons to this hotel is the lack of a hot tub. They have a pool but it...

We stayed as a team and were very impressed by the amenities, the room allocation and how accommodating the staff were. The rooms were clean, nicely appointed and close to the pool area. The pool was perfect for the kids and parents alike to hang out and enjoy time together. The included breakfast had a nice variety and was readily...

Check in was swift, sleep was terrible, the pillows are like quicksand. On the first morning, I went outside to check if there were any taxis, none.
