We had the pleasure of staying at the Hotel Alma August 29th through September 1st as we got the kid ready for year 2 at the University of Calgary.
The kid was playing ball for the Dinos in a tourney before she could move into her dorm, so the hotel's location right on campus was perfect for us.
We stayed in a one bedroom suite. The room is very clean and well maintained. The bed was one of the most comfortable hotel beds I've ever slept on. Plenty of space in the room. All essential amenities were available in the room (mini fridge, microwave and coffee maker). The staff were very welcoming and helpful on the couple occasions that I needed help. Parking would have been a hassle, but we had an overheight vehicle that would not fit in the covered parkade and were told to park right beside the hotel.
Not much to complain about, but if I had to nitpick, the bathroom sink was pretty much useless as the shallow bowl caused splashing all over the place, even with just a little water pressure. There were very few television channels available and none were in high definition, but since we were out and about most of the time, this wasn't much of a concern. The continental breakfast had very few items offered, but what was there was decent.
If I have to go back to the University of Calgary, and I probably will, I would definitely stay here again.
