Stayed here a few years back and return in Oct/12. I'll break down my review into the two types of guests.
Corporate: This one is easy. If your company is paying the tab, you need a nice place to stay, you've found it here. No need to read on, just book it and let your accounting department take care of your bill & enjoy your stay. 5 * tripadvisor rating.
Private Guest: Here I expect value for $ spent. Whatever room rate you have, if you want internet in your room wired or wireless add $12+/day. If you also have a car to park, that's $20+/day.
If you're coming into town and renting a car, it's almost as much to park your car is it costs to rent. (pick up rental car, drop off before rental location closing and avoid the parking fee).
I've stayed at many nice hotels out in the NE area near the airport (somewhat industrial) that are all new, include wifi, breakfast & parking. Much better bang for the buck spent in my opinion. However if you NEED to stay downtown for conference, etc. the comfort here is good
& staff is friendly. 3* Tripadvisor rating, down from Value/$ spent.
Earlier this year I was in Calgary and stayed at a suite hotel down the block, I wish I could upgrade them one star/circle as I with this as a comparison, they deserve better. They only had a sketchy old elevator as it's biggest fault.
