I stay at this hotel frequently as a business traveller, and I would say it is a very well managed establishment. Every detail is taken care of from check in to check out, and the service is top notch.
The rooms are very nicely furnished, and clean. There are two sides to the hotel - the standard side and the "tower" side, which is usually more expensive, or used for upgrading starwood platinum/gold members. I actually prefer the standard side, as the rooms have been recently renovated, although they are a bit smaller.
There is a keg downstairs just off the lobby which is great. There is also the "liquid lounge" off the lobby as well - which offers free drinks/appetizers on Wednesday evenings, in addition to being a small bar.
The gym on the top floor of the tower is pretty decent, includes a pool, and was recently renovated.
The location is overall not quite central downtown, but a bit on the north side, lots of restaurants in the area and the hotel is connected to Calgary's "plus 15" downtown internal walkway system, which means you don't have to go outside as much in the winter, which is a bonus.
Overall, one of the best hotels in the Calgary area. I'd recommend booking early as it fills up quite quickly.
