My wife and I stayed here for two nights.
The hotel on the whole is acceptable and the staff are friendly. However it is location is now somewhat out of place with all the new shiny glass fronted offices and hotels surrounding it and this hotel is now a bit outdated.
We had a room on the 17th floor facing the street and it was noisy. But if you a have a room at the rear, you will be facing at least one new building being erected and tower cranes and it appears another site further behind is about to commence. This building work which seems to start early in the morning echoes off the surrounding buildings and causes a noise problem at the front as well. Unfortunately Canadian and US hotels in down town locations do not know how to sound proof their windows adequately and noise through windows is a huge problem.
The suite we had, was a good size and presentable. As strangers to the city, we found no notification for parking, and in the end just pulled up outside and got the valet service to move the car.
The pool in the sub basement is a little tired and the water is a little on the cool side. Breakfasts are nothing to write home about and again the restaurant is tired. We had the best steaks ever, at Caesars about 200m along Fourth Ave. Not cheap but excellent.
We found Calgary a very pleasant city to walk around.
