June 13 - 15, 2013
Room 307
What a lovely place, very friendly and helpful staff (every staff member we ran into).
The hotel is obviously not new but very well kept and I assume, upgraded as necessary.
The suite we stayed in had a nice big closet. The bathroom had the tub/shower and toilet behind a door and the sink area in the same area as the closet. The tub was good for having a bath - nice and deep.
The bed was comfortable, though possibly a smidge soft. Pillows were high - but not a problem as I brought my own. There was tv in the bedroom as well as lamps and bedside tables.
The kitchen/living room area was well appointed. There was a desk and task chair with a lamp. The internet was slow, the front desk mentioned that they are upgrading it and I might want to use the LAN instead. The kitchen is well equipped and has a full fridge (with ice maker), dish washer, toaster, microwave, coffee maker, hot plate with 2 burners. There are glasses, plates and cutlery for 4. A nice touch is the popcorn bowl and popcorn for popping in the microwave.
I arrived at the hotel after the managers dinner - I was offered a cookie and there was juice near the front door. I went to the front desk for ice (as you must turn your fridge ice maker on) and was offered another bag of popcorn and more cookies if I wanted.
The hotel offers a free breakfast from 7:30 - 9:30. The dining area is very pleasant. Breakfast offers a nice variety including hot options, yogurt, granola, preserves, various breads, oatmeal and juices/pop/coffee. Also offered is a light dinner 17:30 - 19:30 (Monday to Thursday). Wednesday night is Managers Dinner - not sure what that is as I arrived just afterwards, sounds promising. On Thursday they offered soup, salad and sandwiches - a very enjoyable "light dinner".
Didn't use the pool but stopped in for a peek - it looked nice and clean.
I would be happy to return to this hotel and would certainly recommend it to friends and family.

Thank you for such a positive and detailed review. You obviously have done these before. Very informative to your fellow travelers.
We especially enjoy seeing the comments about how our employees engage positively with our guests. They work hard at that.
There are 3 sets of pillows in each room. The two sets on the bed are hypo-allergenic and of different firmness. The other set is in the closet and is down filled. - but, try as we might, we certainly understand that we can't emulate the pillow at home, nor the bed for that matter.
As our front desk mentioned, we are currently upgrading our WiFi system to the latest in available technology. We have also recently doubled our signal intake capacity, and are willing to go beyond that if demand dictates. Many of our guests now carry multiple WiFi devices and use them for purposes that make ensuring they have a good signal on the part of the hotel, essential.
Weekday breakfast is actually 6:30 to 9:30 am, while weekends are 7:00 to 10:00 am. We inventory over 70 individual items to make up our daily breakfast. Weekday evening snack is offered from 5:30 to 7:00 pm Monday through Thursday. Nothing complicated nor extensive, but it might keep the hungry panes away for a while. On Wednesday evenings we 'up it' a bit to a basic dinner. Still nothing sophisticated. Once a month, often the 2nd Wednesday, we 'up it' again a bit, for what we call guest appreciation. (Although I really don't like having that title only one time a month!)
Thank you for discovering us and being our guest.. As well thank you again on behalf of the travelers who might find such a detailed review as this helpful.
Cheers!

Went to this hotel on a business trip and it exceeded all my expectations. It was very clean and modern, loved the kitchen in the room. The complimentary breakfast buffet and light dinner was wonderful and the General Manager and staff were very friendly and helpful. Would recommend staying here for future visits to Calgary.

Functional place near to the airport in a rich, oil-town, so one doesn't expect much. A thank you for the free airport transfer however and the studio-type room was big with a kitchenette. However, the location is bland, in an industrial estate, and breakfast selection was pretty small and uninspired. If I understood it correctly, their restaurant is a couple of blocks away-strange! Breakfast was basically DIY.
OK for a stay for a night or two. We arrived here from the airport on the first stage on a long-awaited odyssey through North America.

Room Tip: All pretty bland I think.

Thank you for taking the time to provide your review. All constructive feedback is well appreciated.

We consider It to be crucially important in our marketing communications to promote our product very accurately. I am happy that this remains uncontested.

We currently inventory 70 or more individual items on our daily breakfast buffet offering. In an effort to increase a typically positive guest experience, we have engaged a chef consultant, as we agree that we should always strive to improve.

Apart for what is stated as being part of our product offering, the Lakeview Signature Inn does not operate a restaurant. As is happens, adjacent to our property are three restaurants. Two are quick service, a Tim Horton's and an A&W. The other is the Cactus Club (unaffiliated), rated as one of Calgary's most favorite restaurants. Apart from these, there is a variety of 19 other restaurants within a 15 minute walk.

We appreciate you choosing to stay with us, and look forward to an opportunity to host you again. Of course, we also hope your odyssey through North America is full of absolute enjoyment.

Thank you again.

We (grandparents, parents and 18 month old toddler) stayed just one night in two bedroom suite but found it excellent for space, value and friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast buffet (included in overnight rate) was good too - the hot option of omelette and pork patties being the unusual alternative to scrambled egg and bacon. Warmly recommended hotel.

Thank you so much for taking the time to provide this review.

I am glad you enjoyed the hotel and especially our two bedroom suite option. On a per room basis, these room are our best value and not found in many hotels. The layout is very functional and convenient with each bedroom having it's own full en suite, as well as the living room & kitchen separating each bedroom. Three TV's in separate rooms mean no one need feel they are inconveniencing others in the party. A full oven, fridge, and dishwasher help control restaurant bills while travelling.

We appreciate you discovering, and choosing to stay with us, especially with some of the biggest International hotel chain names available as alternatives.

Cheers!

stayed here twice in may , before and after a 3 weeks road trip. has to be the most welcoming, friendly and accomodating place I have ever stayed in. great friendly staff; nothing was too much trouble. rooms are immaculately clean and supplied with all you would need for overnight or a long stay. great pool, free dvd hire, small shop and of course, great cookies on the counter! ideally situated for the airport, downtown or local car hire firms.
John ,the manager, and his staff here do all they can to make you feel at home.
cant recommended this hotel enough!! pity TA only allows 5 stars , it easily deserves 10!!

Room Tip: all the suites are excellent with the same facilities.

It is so wonderful of you to take the time to provide such pleasant comments about our hotel and those of us in it. We are deeply appreciative. Thank you.

Please know we will always strive to make the guest experience as pleasant as we know how. Our employees feel so rewarded by it being noticed as you have done here.

International guests, such as yourself, are often 'adopted' by our employees in a way that hopefully provides a supportive experience for those so far from home. We also certainly want your Canadian experiences, including those outside our hotel, to be full of only positive memories. A great deal of money is usually paid just to get to Canada, so the experience should all be good!

Thank you fro being our guest..

We booked based on the reviews here and the hotel exceeded expectations. Queen studio room - spacoius, with kitchenette and work desk, couch and TV. Bed very comfy, bathroom huge with tub/shower as well as wheelchair accessible shower. All areas spotless. Breakfast included hot eggs, breakfast meats, pancakes and make your own waffles. Cereals, fruit, pastries and juices also available - all included in room rate. Cookies, fruit and lemon/lime water available in the lobby 24/7. All the staff we encountered were very friendly and helpful. Free wi-fi in rooms and computer in lobby with printer for guest use. Excellent stay - would recommend a car for getting around. Calgary Zoo should not be missed.

The employees of our hotel greatly enjoyed hosting your volley ball team. Thank you again for choosing to stay with with us. The pleasure was also ours.

Hosting teams properly requires a degree of anticipation of their particular needs, accompanied by a few procedural changes from the norm. I am happy they achieved the level of satisfaction you outlined.

Please consider that you have a welcoming host when next in Calgary.
