Acclaim Hotel Calgary Airport
Ranked #25 of 109 Hotels in Calgary
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 28, 2012

This hotel is conveniently close to Calgary Airport with a free shuttle bus (why does that Airport site the phones for hotel courtesy buses outside? guaranteed to freeze guests in Albertan winters) and is efficiently run with pleasant staff. Its design is fairly utilitarian, though the bedrooms are reasonable well equipped. A so called Italian is attached to the hotel and serves entirely predictable and ordinary fare, though again the staff help make the experience of eating there at least bearable. When I stayed, the hotel seemed full and building is going on to increase its size, but were it not for its convenience for the airport I cannot imagine that extra accommodation would be needed.

Room Tip: Try to stay away from the elevators and ice machines

The demand for lodging in Calgary is quite strong and we feel our 102 new rooms and suites being developed will be well received in the market. The new wing, opening June 2013, will also provide our guests with 6000 sq/f event space and additional retail options conveniently located just off the main lobby. Additionally, with our new heated parkade our guest will not have to endure those cold Alberta winters when parking at Acclaim Hotel.

I was surprised at how nice this hotel is! Checking in was a friendly process and our room more than met our expectations. The room is was not huge but the way they have built to organize everything it felt very luxurious. It is very cleverly built and it feels like a upgraded room compared to many hotels. The shower had a rain shower head and nozzles all the way down the wall, There is also a tv in the bathroom. Every single space is used very cleverly. The keurig coffee pot is a nice touch. The chaise lounger was comfortable as well as the alarm clock charged my iPhone which was nice. The roof top hot tub was our favourite place! It is set up so nicely that we will be back just for the hotel when we want a little get away. Highly recommended. Comfortable King bed as well.

Room Tip: Make sure you use the roof top hot tub!

This hotel matched or exceeded everything we read on TripAdvisor! The hotel is adjacent to Calgary International airport, so our single night here gave us easy airport access for an early flight the next day.

The hotel is meticulously clean, with fine linens and towels, a sparkling fancy shower with all kinds of nozzles and spray devices, comfortable beds, plenty of plugs for electronics, and well-organized desk and table top space. We asked for a quiet room and were put on the high floor at the end of the hall, and we never heard or saw other guests near our room at all.

Pacini restaurant in the hotel is equally enjoyable and worthwhile. This restaurant has a complimentary "bread bar" where you can serve yourself different types of breads with different toppings, and then toast them on a broiler - and the menu is loaded with delicious Italian dishes!

We'd stay here again - anytime!

We were looking for a hotel close to Crossiron Mall for a short shopping trip. This was perfect, only about 5 minutes from the mall (no driving through the city!). we were very impressed with the room - the tub was amazing (equipped with a TV right in the bathroom!). we also dined at the onsite restaurant (Pacini) which was a very nice Italian restaurant. Overall, a great experience! I would highly recommend this hotel!

Room Tip: We chose the lowest priced room with 2 queen beds and it was really great!

We stayed here overnight before an early morning flight. On the website we booked (Air Canada.com) it advertised "Continental Breakfast". When we arrived, we were told there was no breakfast included because there was a restuarant.

After speaking to the front desk about this, we were given a voucher for a free breakfast which was very nice of them. Be careful when booking because if I wouldn't have asked, they wouldn't have offered!

This hotel also offered free movies (not too many to choose from) but it was nice to have that option.

We discovered the Acclaim hotel on the internet and decided to give it a try for a one night stay while attending a Conference in downtown Calgary the following day. We were willing to do the drive into downtown as we wanted to identify a hotel we could use when choosing Calgary as a point to fly in and out, which we do on occasion. The reviews were excellent and we were not disappointed. Our room was very comfortable. However, I would book a suite next time to have some additional space, just because it is something we enjoy. The rooftop hot tubs were very clean,as well as being nice and hot, and the availability of fresh towels just as you go out to the area means you don't have to take towels to and from your room. There is a shuttle bus to and from the airport. The outside of the hotel is rather plain, but the hotel is quite new and the interior decor and comfort of rooms makes it a wonderful option for an airport stay. We would stay there again just to dine at the Pacini restaurant which is attached to the hotel. That is where breakfast is served in the morning, and we also had a superb Italian meal there the night we stayed at the hotel. It is hard to find nice airport hotels that are very well priced, clean and quiet. Generally we consider everything else a bonus- we were very pleased with this new find and will definitely stay there in future. There are various packages available so check to see what best suits your needs. They also have an option to upgrade to a suite at a minimal price if one is available at the time of check in- unfortunately the night we stayed the hotel was 100% booked - it seems to really be quite popular, and for good reason.

Room Tip: Consider a suite if one is available at a good price - also, don't miss dining at the restaurant...

We booked into The Acclaim for 4 nights during preparations for our daughter's wedding. We had asked her to book us a hotel with easy access to all the comings and goings that wedding preparations entail! Her very high recommendations about the Acclaim had us anticipating an excellent experience, and here, we discovered it here in every detail! The management and staff are so friendly and accommodating, anticipating needs and pleasantly and rapidly fulfilling requests. Our room was extremely well appointed: beautiful king bed, lots of extra seating for the entertaining we did, business desk, bar, vanity with light-up makeup mirror and a bathroom with all of the trimmings, including multiple jets in the shower, night lights etc. In spite of the hotel's convenient proximity to the airport, we were only aware of the noises of jets as we lounged in the roof top hot tubs in the evening. Again, the convenient location allowed us to make trips into downtown, zip into Airdrie for spa treatments and family time, shop at CrossIron Mills Mall, or head to Banff or, ultimately, the airport. As well, attached to this hotel is Pacini ... a wonderful Italian restaurant where we hosted a family evening prior to the wedding. I will review that separately....but the experience was again, excellent and delicious! We look forward to visiting again!
