I have stayed at other Staybridge Suites but this was my first time to the Calgary location. I only stayed for one night, but have a week's trip coming up and will definitely stay there if I can. Front desk staff were welcoming and apologetic my room wasn't yet ready (although I was an early arrival). My room was clean and spacious, and the location is great for shopping in the Sunridge Mall area. The bonus of breakfast in the morn ing and the evening reception through the weeknights makes this a great value as well.
I have to make special note of the Guest Services Manager Shaf Murji. The enthusiasm he has for his job and the guests his hotel serves are second to none and truly best in class. He greeted me at check in, and at the evening reception he greeted some people by name and truly exuded that he wanted everyone to feel welcome. If every hotel could share in this level of commitment to making sure their guests feel welcome and greeted as friends not just "bums in beds" it would make travelling a true joy. I have never actually asked for someone's name before to point them out, but he definitely needs mentioning.More
