Fair price for downtown Calgary

If you are looking for a convenient downtown location at a fair price, this is it. The hotel is tired and dated. There were stains in the carpet, peeling wallpaper, mildew around the ceiling of the bathtub area, all indicative of an older hotel that just hasn't been kept up as much as it should have been. I was there for two nights and the television lost signal on most channels the second night. Not a big deal for me as I was using it more for a distraction but they need to fix that issue. There were no weather issues at the time so there isn't really any excuse for that. The wifi also seemed spotty. If you are trying to work from your hotel room it can impact productivity. Really expected better from this hotel.

Excellent location for attending Galgary Stampede

Average experience. Hotel did not have a pool, which would have been nice to relax in after being at Calgary Stampede all day.

Great for price

The hotel staff was friendly and very helpful. I was disappointed there wasn't a fridge in the room but it really was too big of a deal. My room was neat and clean and perfect for just one person. Easy access to everything. The business center needs a copy machine but the manager allowed me to use the hotel staff copier. The carpets in the hallway leading to my room need to be replaced and the elevator is old but it is an older downtown hotel. I had an overall great experience which I was worried about after reading the reviews.

Needs to be razed!

We were told that the rooms had been refurbished but the floor was filthy, the bathroom was old with crusty buildups along the edges of the floor, cramped, with no towel racks. Valet parking was slow and the valet was unkempt and surly. We couldn't wait to conclude our stay.

Holiday from Asia

I am satisfied with the location as it is accessible to the train. It will be good if they provide complimentary bottle water for the guest upon arrival with a tray of simple fruits. The hotel staff are friendly and patient. I stayed 4 days there. The price can be more competitive. The wireless connection is not that high speed and it breaks connection frequently. Need to improve on the connection. This keeps me having second thoughts to stay in this hotel again.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

Banker hall provides some good shopping and food. There is a free zone and you need not pay for a ticket as long it is within the free zone. The u & me Chinese restaurant open 20 hours a day. It is located near the Chinese culture centre. Worth dining with value of money. Big portion.

weekend getaway

The location was perfect for walking to just about anywhere downtown. There is a theatre a block away, banks, and good places t eat all within walking distance (we do recommend Earls....the service and food were fantastic) The restaurant in the hotel was okay, but not outstanding. And the pool is outdoors, so it was inaccessible at this time.
