A number of family members had rooms here while in Calgary for a family wedding celebration. -- perhaps 6 rooms in total. We chose the hotel based on location and value -- good price plus free breakfast! We were very happy with this choice.
The rooms were spacious and clean. Check-in and out was efficient. One of the rooms, on the 3rd floor, had been recently redecorated, including a new large flatscreen tv. The rest of our rooms were perfectly fine, but had older tvs!
The complimentary breakfast was excellent. 4 hot items, plus continental type fare, including warm cinnamon rolls. The breakfast room was very clean . The pool area looked clean and inviting, but we had no time to spend there. The only negative would be that the lobby, hallways, and elevators were not air conditioned, and the hot outdoor weather made these areas uncomfortably warm. Not a major deal, since the rooms had excellent AC.
The manager was very nice, and we visited with her for almost an hour on our last evening in the hotel.
