Arrived after a long haul flight and was asked at reception if we wanted a room at one end to the complex or the other, I requested the quietest room. We were allocated a room, with air-conditioning outside the door that was nothing equivalent to an industrial chiller noise. The quietest room I think not. We requested to move, and... More

We arrived in town during Stampede Week and could not believe our luck. Our suite was spacious, comfortable, clean, and made our 3 day stay so pleasant. The pool is clean and attractive, the complimentary breakfast offers several options very suitable for travellers. The hotel location is great for getting around, and handy to shopping.

The hotel had a great location for where we wanted to be in Calgary and it was the cheapest option we could find but it was a completely fine room and the staff were polite. Just be aware there are no elevators so be prepared to carry your luggage up several flights of stairs.

Loved the room in the corner and on the ground floor. Only bad thing about the room was the cleanliness . Around the basin it was sticky and then there was a long black hair. The service at the front desk was atrocious, the staff didn't know what to do upon checkout

Pro: Good bed for a solid nights sleep. Con: No eggs, bacon, etc for breakfast. Just a waffle station and cold breakfast foods. Close to lots of amenities on Macleod Trail near Chinook Centre. Easy access in and out of the city. Found it reasonably close to city attractions

Stayed here on Easter weekend. As a mobility impaired client certain things are very important and when the staff helped out it was much appreciated. However the bed was very old with springs popping out. That being said it was still somewhat comfortable in most of the spots just not where I was sleeping. So for a king bed it... More
