It's Decent

The hotel needs a major remodel. Everything is from the 80's. The toilet still has a 3 gallon flush which I'm not even sure how that's legal. Furniture and carpet is on it's last leg. Hallway carpet torn in several areas. I give it 3 stars because the rate is great considering the location is downtown. Don't stay there to impress anyone, stay there for a comfortable bed and great location with a great price.

Sandman hotel

Fair overall stay, but the internet did not work even though IT supposedly fixed it and the pool was closed. Also, there was no fridge or microwave.

Not bad.

Hotel is standard, not spectacular, clean enough. Staff is friendly enough. The room carpets look old and not too clean. I like the Tazo tea in room.

We the boys getaway

This hotel was perfect for our trip. It was in the heart of downtown. It had clubs nearby so you didn't have to call for a cab. It was just like a 5 minute walk and your there. If you are looking for a place to party with your friends, I would recommend it!

Water Issues, horrible WiFi

My first night they were working on the water system and failed to let me know there was no water in the morning. Got my hair washed and the water pretty much stopped and what was coming out had brownish tint. Was told of overnight work in the morning when I complained. Upon return, apology notices were posted but my room still had no water pressure. They moved me but not so much as a drink coupon for the annoyance. WiFi and ethernet connection speeds were atrocious. For that alone I will not stay there again.

Business trip to Calgary

The hotel is pretty big, has a restaurant and a pub. Swimming pool was closed. Business center staff was exceptional, we had to call an adhoc meeting and ran to the business center. One of the staff came by and gave us a meeting room. Its connected to the +15 but it would have taken us longer to get to work than if we just walked the streets. The restaurant is not a great value if your vegetarian or vegan and the options close by also make it difficult for you. Otherwise it was a fair experience.
