The thing about Calgary is this. Calgary is a business hub for a number of energy and financial companies in Western Canada. Lots of business travels come in every week and there is a very high demand for hotel rooms in the downtown core. Hotel operators have come to realize they can charge an extraordinarily high nightly rate and cut hotel amenities without losing guests.
The hotels I have stayed at in downtown Calgary including the Sheraton, Hyatt and Delta have much lower standards than other cities. If this was Toronto or Vancouver guests would demand high standards or take their business elsewhere. In Calgary there is nowhere else to go – hotels are limited and all the operators are in the same boat. Charge outrageous prices, do very few renovations, and minimal service standards in order to be most profitable.
The Sheraton is no different – the hotel rooms are tired and the beds are uncomfortable since they have not been replaced in a long time. The services and amenities are limited; most other Sheraton’s offer something like a continental breakfast or free internet – but not here, everything is extra. The problem is that I'm not sure where else in Calgary that is better to go. The standards at all the hotels I've been to here are the same – might as well save a few bucks and stay at a Holiday Inn or Best Western.
