Good hotel amazing stuff. Very clean and friendly hotel

This hotel is in a busy commercial area but it's close to downtown which makes it very convenient for exploring Calgary. It is very up to date and well maintained with lots of nice amenities.

Good location for late arrival flight in Calgary. Clean room, continental breakfast and free WIFi.

Ok for the money. Clean and new. Free parking. Free Breakfast. Closed to the UofC.

The desk person was very nice to me at check in and told me that I'd been upgraded to a better room. The room was great, very clean, with a huge bed. Nice and comfortable. Staff was very nice at check out as well. It was a pleasing stay.

The price was great for the location and amenities. A heartier breakfast buffet and perhaps a little more attention to the cleaning details is what I would suggest.

No problems with the room or staff but every day our room keys would stop working and we would have to go back downstairs to the desk to have them reset. Everyday they gave a different excuse why it happened. Being over 70, on the 5th floor, and almost the last room in the hallway this became a real pain in the xxx. Other that that we were happy with the hotel.

Everything went very well during my stay. Room cleaning service was great and front desk staff very friendly. My only complaints are that there was no office center; I had to pay the front desk 25¢/page for printing. And the breakfast is pretty terrible: watered down juices and very little in the way of fruits, for example, to go with the cereals, yogurts, etc. I think that for the price, that is some unnecessary corner cutting. The rest of the stay was great.

One of the cheapest hotels I could find, but rooms were alright... No restaurant in the hotel, but they have a pool, hottub, and some cardio equipment. Free breakfast is cereal, toast, pastries, and muffins. Staff was friendly enough. Internet was very slow. Basically a no frills place, but clean and cheap.

Half business half pleasure excellent location for restaurants and access to shopping really enjoyed our stay.

Nice room, friendly service, & close to the C-Train.

Nice location,very clean,nice breakfast,working machines in the fitness center,super laundry room ( 4 new machines, big clean clothes bench and a sink )and a heating unit that was not a clunker and gave quiet even heat.
