I must echo all the glowing reviews for Le Germain Calgary. I was in Calgary for two nights (initially scheduled for three) for work last week. I stayed in the first Toronto Le Germain a few times so I figure I’d try out this one, and I must say the experience was über-fantastic. (While I was there I actually called home and told my partner that it was a pity that he wasn’t here to see it.)
Since it is only about eight months old, the property is expectedly modern and trendy. But Le Germain Calgary is exceptional even for new properties. I was given a room on the sixth floor. It was spacious and the décor was simple yet sleek and pleasant. The interior designer did an excellent and thoughtful job. The bathroom was stunningly beautiful (though it does not have a bathtub). The pictures I have here do not do the room justice (crappy quality with a smartphone) but they give you an idea about the decor.
The customer service was also excellent. The staff in the lobby was attentive, helpful, and most importantly, efficient and generally pleasant to deal with. Wifi, valet parking, breakfast were all included in the room rate (though not the espresso machine in the room, which I thought was a little strange).
The gym has an excellent view, but is a little “under-developed”. Though the whole gym/spa/meeting room floor was evidently a work in progress, so improvements can presumably be expected. (This place would be just about perfect if hotel guests are granted access, or can pay for access, to the pool/hot-tub on the residence side.)
