Holiday Inn Calgary - Macleod Trail South
Ranked #67 of 110 Hotels in Calgary
Reviewed September 13, 2010

We booked this hotel as it was next to the tram stop and only 15mins walk from the Stampede showground. The first room we were given was right next door to the guest laundry so we asked for a different one as the washers and dryers seemed to be running non stop! The replacement room was much quieter but rather brown and dingy in its decor. I would not stop here for a holiday as such but it was okay to sleep in whilst visiting the Stampede and the breakfast was fine.

As stated by other reviewers, this hotel has nice rooms which are very comfortable. We asked for a quiet one and the receptionist put us at the far end of the corridor, hopefully well away from any disturbances. However we were the closest to the C Train line so we could hear the trains, though they didn't disturb us too much. Being so close to this is a great advantage for getting into Calgary quickly; unfortunately for us it was a National/state holiday on one of the days we were there and the train did not go into the city- they did lay on buses instead; the hotel did not know about this either.
Reception staff were very accommodating and did allow us vouchers towards breakfast 1 morning (out of 2) as we had been led to believe that breakfast was included in our rate (which in England is almost always the case in Holiday Inns)
The hotel in is a poor area (car show rooms and light industry) and there didn't seem to be any decent restaurants nearby. However for a couple of nights it is a good option if you don't want to pay the prices charged by downtown Calgary Hotels.

Nicely renovated hotel that is very clean. Restaurant food is very good. Pool is great.

I found the beds to be very uncomfortable – but everybody is different, so I would not want this to deter another person from staying. The mattress was just too firm for my liking.

Overall, this was a good experience with a well-trusted brand name hotel.

I stayed at the Holiday Inn on Macleod Trail and was impressed with the facility. The best part was the location of the hotel. The LRT was right behind the hotel (a 2 minute walk) and I caught it to the Science World downtown. The convenience of not needing a vehicle was great. The staff was friendly; from front desk to the lounge. The gym is open 24 hours and there is also an indoor pool. The hotel has been tastefully renovated and my room was comfortable - you even had your choice of firm or soft pillows! I would recommend this hotel.

To begin with our room was nice and clean. The hotel is in a good location but traffic was a little noisy when we were trying to put the kids to sleep. The restaurant was good for breakfast (kids eat free - was a nice bonus) the food was good, but not for supper. We ate there the first night because we didn't feel like driving anymore, but we should have ordered in because it was horrible. Very poorly cooked, half was over done and the other half was under cooked. The other reason we picked this hotel was because it had a pool, unfortunately the pool was freezing. It was comparable to swimming in hose water. We called the front desk to complain the first night about how cold it was, and continued to check it each day but there was no change. When we checked out the front desk staff acted surprised that we thought there was something wrong with the heating system of the pool. I find it hard t believe that we were the only ones to voice this concern. But if your just looking for a place to stay in a descent location and don't care about the food or the pool it was clean and comfortable.

We originally made our reservation at the other Holiday Inn on Macleod Trail, but it was dirty, the staff was rude, and the area was less than desirable. We headed farther south to this Holiday Inn Express and it was simply superb. The staff welcomed us to Calgary, put us in an upgraded room, offered for us to call family on their office phone (we didn't want to use our American phones), offered us directions and restaurant recommendations, and were certainly the nicest hotel staff we have ever encountered--especially the manager, Kim.

Superbly renovated hotel. the only negative side was that it was on anindustrial esate and fairly busy raod but with the standard of the hotel we personally did not mind this. Excellent links to city centre with c line train right behind hotel. Housekeeper was exceptionally helpful and friendly as were the reception staff. Ate fish and chips in restaurant as area does lack in decent restaurants. These good and reasonably priced.
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here.
