Very good experience with this best western. the front desk is very friendly and helpful. Room was clean and Internet was good as i needed to strong connection to VPN. underground parking was especially needed with all this snow in Calgary! Thanks!

Super friendly and welcoming staff, espeacially the front desk. Perfect location in downtown with free parking and free breakfast!! Would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a mountain getaway..

Very professional staff at front desk they welcomed us with a smile. The breakfast was good! Bed were comfortable and free parking is a bonus, location is awesome. My family and I definitely recommend this hotel. At last but not least thank you so much everyone for giving us such a wonderful stay.

I can't find any reason to not give this facility 5 out of 5. Yes, the building is a bit dated, but this is being addressed. The rooms are very clean and being updated. The staff here are outstanding! I have stayed at this hotel over 40 night in the past year. It is always the same fantastic staff, and they all appear happy and engaged in their positions. I've always been accommodated, whether planning in advance or last minute booking. Great breakfast room, great location, parking (surface or underground), staff, I can't say enough about this hotel.

I find the staff at the front desk start to make this a great stay. They are always so friendly and helpful. The room was clean and comfortable and I enjoy having a little kitchenette to prepare a light snack, if need be.

We got a upper floor corner room, nice views of the skyline. They have a underground secure parking garage. We walked where ever we went from this location. Free breakfast, quite a bit close by to do.

Great Location near to 17th Ave and core downtown. View is great. Clean, quiet and well maintained. Very friendly, supportive staff with constantly quality service.Spend a lot of time staying here for business

Great location in the beltline. We stayed in a one bedroom suite. It was nice to have the room but there were many issues. The decor is very dated and the furniture etc. is not in good condition. The closet doors didn’t work, the dresser looked like it was crudely made out of plywood and one drawer didn’t work, the tv in the bedroom didn’t work, the rug is old and ugly. Also the heaters were offensively loud. Now to some positives. The free breakfast was decent and included so-so hot items, cereal, juices, yogurt, pastries and muffins and fruit. Most of the staff was excellent. The checkin desk fellow was a bit rude at first — didn’t acknowledge us at all —not even by eye contact as he served someone else and then spent 10 minutes with a customer on the phone while we were waiting. The workout room was good. The bed linens were very nice -crisp, white cotton but the towels were scratchy. The parking was convenient. Updating the rooms would make us return. I understand the king suites have been renovated but the one bedroom suites have not. As they are we felt like we were destitute college kids living in a cheap rental. I received a survey from Best Western and completed it with similar comments and the manager responded and seemed to genuinely want my return business and listened to my concerns. That says to me that this property is in good hands.

Location is good and well connected to other places. Near to core downtown and 17th avenue. View is great. Clean, quiet and well maintained. Very friendly, supportive staff with constantly quality service. Rooms are beautiful, spacious and well maintained. Good facilities like complimentary breakfast, fitness center, sauna, printers. In the suits, kitchen is filled with all necessary stuffs. I highly recommend staying here.

First we Reach Calgary around 3:45am a front desk was helpful kindly and consideration:) nice accommodation best price, Clean room, nice staff. Late check out, Free parking lot, free breakfast food, cooking stuf, microwave, mini fridge, everything in the kitchen. Is here. Next time I will check in here again, and I would love to recommend the Best western Suite in calgary.
