Reviewed July 11, 2012

I don't usually expect much from airport hotels, so the Acclaim was a pleasant surprise! The room was spacious, clean and very modern. The bathroom had granite countertops, a tv, a great shower head with several different pulsating jets. There was also a rooftop hot tub and an Italian restaurant attached that was delicious. The staff at the front desk was also pleasant and helpful.

Stayed: July 2012, traveled with friends

Omg!! In the middle of NOWHERE!! It has a free shuttle to the airport. Which isn't even very close. That's it!! It's new 70's Modern. Which I hate. This is not a relaxing or comfortable style. 1/2 hr to Calgary with no traffic. An hour if traffic. In industrial park. $400 a night and couldn't even provide find a nearby haircut or shopping. NOTHING!! ..further, we booked for 2 nights with an option to take another 2 upon arrival but after a very long and upsetting discussion with the hotel manager, we were repeatedly informed that unless we knew who told us this that we would be charged for 4 nights even if we only stayed for 2!! Unreal!! Would rather stay on the moon.

I regret that the location and décor were not appreciated.

Acclaim Hotel Calgary Airport is the closest, off terminal, hotel to Calgary International Airport. The distance is 2 kms, less than a 5-minute drive from the hotel to the airport terminal.

There are 3 shopping centers under 10 minutes drive from the hotel; CrossIron Mills Mall, Country Hills Plaza, and Deerfoot Mall.

From the hotel It is approximately 15 minutes drive to the Downtown Calgary core, without traffic congestion. Acclaim Hotel Calgary Airport is a northeast Calgary airport location, not a downtown location.

During the 100-year Anniversary Calgary Stampede citywide event, market pressures affected rates and policies.

The pictures of the rooms and decor speak for themselves; we find that most of our guests appreciate them very much.

Modern, clean, and many amenities including a roof top hot tub. It is pricier than many of the other hotels in the airport area but it's worth it! Amazing shower, can borrow movies to watch for free, clean room, free parking, shuttle to airport (which is very close). Highly recommend!

Despite its location - in the middle of an industrial are that is only partially built! - the hotel is extremely handy for the airport, is a masterpiece of fitting out a good suite in a small space, and has a very good (and highly popular) restaurant. The roof top hot tubs are a surprise too!

Room Tip: No aircraft noise heard, even on the airport side, though you can see the planes land

Nice and convenient location to Calgary International Airport. My husband and I stayed there in May 2012 and prebooked a room online. When I booked the hotel, I made a mistake and booked it for the wrong night. Once I realized this, I called the hotel and they switched my prepaid reservation without any question. We were exhausted and were very happy to have a nice king size bed to sleep on. The bed was exceptionally comfortable. The size of the room was good. We didn't feel cramped with the king bed, a lounge chair, desk, chair, flat screen tv and dressor in the room. The room was very clean. Our bathroom was a good size. Overall I would say this was a good place to stay and decent value. I would stay there again if I fly out of Calgary International airport. The hotel restaraunt was decent, and the service was good.

Stayed here one night after a late flight in to Calgary. Rooms are modern, clean, good quality. Very close to the airport, has a free shuttle which runs every half hour. Got a great price on this hotel, so it was definitely worth it. It's in an industrial area, so the only restaurant around is the one in the hotel. For an airport hotel though, Acclaim was really above expectations.

Stayed here one night. There is nothing around this hotel. It is an in and out hotel. Good for flyers that just need a place to sleep as it is the closest hotel to the airport other than the one right at the airport. There is a restaurant on the property but that's it. It is 10 to 15 min to get to a good/variety restaurants. There is no room service, no movies on demand, and the windows do not open up even though there is only 4 floors. These are musts for me when I've been traveling all day. The bed was comfortable which why I say its an "in and out" hotel. They said they have movies to rent but the selection was pathetic!! The bathroom was nice but tight! I thought the hotel to be a bit noisy as well....the doors closing in other rooms make quite a noise and I could hear people walking above us. BRING EAR PLUGS!! The elevator is slow as molasses...faster to take the stairs.

Room Tip: Ask for 4th floor so no one is above you and at the end so you don't have the elevator near you.
