I stayed courtesy of a client company so am not sure of the rate (superior king room), but I understand it would not have been cheap.
This is a quality, well run establishment in downtown Calgary and I'd reccommend it, especially if you want to take a break from the 'usual' Sheraton, Fairmont, Marriott etc.
Room and bathroom were stylish and had all the facilities one would want - except a bathtub. I was a bit disappointed in that. Good separate area for luggage, so the room can stay uncluttered, especially for those of us who 'live out of the suit case' rather than put things in the drawers etc.
The aircon controls were simple and the system responded efficiently. My room had a wide desk with good power / IT plug availability.
Wi-fi is free throughout the hotel. Bravo!! I am sick of paying extra for internet in expensive hotels.
The lobby bar was very crowded (as in there was 1 seat left at the bar) and noisy and I left after one drink for dinner at the hotel's well known restaurant, Char Cut. I was really looking forward to this.
Char Cut was also extremely busy and very noisy. Not having made a reservation, I could only get a seat at the 'kitchen bar' which was entertaining watching the kitchen in action, but not great for enjoying dinner (which was excellent).
Breakfast was included (it appeared, by the $0 I signed for). Not the greatest selection I have seen in hotels of this quality, but OK. The staff seemed a bit under-trained but no big deal.
Overall, a very nice hotel and stay, but I gather the client paid well for it!
