Hotel Alma should not be underrated.
I booked there after the insanely high prices of hotels in downtown Calgary. I spoke to a person I met who was staying downtown at a 2.5 star hotel and was paying 300+ whilst I came in abit over $100 and I think this was a 3-4 star hotel in my eyes.
Based at the University of Calgary the college staff are polite, caring and very very professional. Their service was fantastic.
p.s their restaurant and food is improving. Keep working on it guys
The rooms are clean, new design (the whole hotel is new), flat screen TVs, free wifi and a very comfy bed. I got a euro room (a studio) and for 1 was plenty.
I know some people will be concerned due to the distance from downtown. But it is a 10 minute walk to the University train station a 10 min ride for $2.75 and you are down town.
Overall I love the idea of the hotel on a nice lush green campus and you guys are doing an awesome job running it.
Keep it up
