International Hotel and Spa Calgary

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Very central large hotel great for exploring this beautiful city . Bedroom very comfortable and spacious but hotel a bit dated. Noticed parts were going to be revamped which is encouraging ! had some problems with Wi-Fi connection . Breakfasts could have been more imaginative. Overall very satisfied.

We had the one bedroom suite and it was absolutely stunning. We had a Cityview and the staff was amazing. I would absolutely stay here again when I come back to Calgary. Also, the free breakfast was excellent. The location is just blocks from the river as well as lots of other things to do like Stephen Street (Avenue ?).

This hotel is very dated but renovations seem to be in progress. Room size was nice for the price but bathroom was dirty and the light bulb above the shower was out. Since the shower curtain was dark brown, it was like showering in a power outage. Check in and out were less than ideal. For check in, I waited in line while a 2 clerks helped one person. At check out, they tried to charge me for parking which was included in my stay.

Staff was not welcoming and elevator was slow. Room was spacious, quiet, and clean. Location was good.

Nice spacious room with great amenities for our family. Close to public transportation and loved the indoor heated pool.

This hotel is highly recommended. Staffs are very friendly and accommodating all the time, downtown location is very good, close to everything. The room we had was an executive suite and it was lovely! Free laundry and accommodated us with free early check in, late check out too! Amazing deal with this hotel, can't go wrong!

A couple of days stay on short notice in downtown Calgary. Easy and straightforward check in process, friendly staff, and comfy, clean room. Could use better toiletries, however. Elevators not enough for traffic at peak hours. Breakfast was tasty, but sloppily laid out - couldn't touch utensils because how hot they were.

This hotel would be a great value at double the price. I stayed in a King Suite which was extremely affordable at around $130 and was super spacious. I will stay here every time I visit Calgary.

I have now stayed in 3 locations in Calgary in the last 5 weeks and for the location and money, this is the best place in downtown Calgary. It's on the +15 walkway so in the winter, you never have to go outside downtown and that's another plus. I had the King room and it's very spacious and up to date furniture. The WiFi is extremely fast and that's very important for those that work from their room at night. I will be staying there again next month for 3 weeks and can't wait!

Friendly staff, great location, cleaner than clean rooms. Close to everything Calgary has to offer downtown.

the resception is helpful. breakfast is good the computer room is nice

The drive from Edmonton to Calgary was relaxing, the Hotel stay was even more relaxing! Great location, and close to all amenities. The hotel even had breakfast included in their rate. Stayed here many times, and will continue to do so!

Overall good experience, rooms are huge but a bit dated.

Great convenient place to stay. Terrific service. Friendly staff.

The rooms were big, more like suites as opposed to ordinary hotel rooms. Overall the experience was excellent and I look forward to saying there again.

Spacious rooms. Hotel located close to the shopping CORE mall with a mumber of restaurants close by.

Clean, friendly, perfect location. Love the suites

This hotel was great, I'm not much of a city slicker so getting to it was a challenge. Overall the hotel was great !!

Stayed here a few times and really like it. The rooms are larger suites so feels a little more like home. Food is not bad, but its also close to many restaurants. Attached to +15 so never have to go out into the cold. Only downfall is they are still repairing the damages from the flood so some amenities are not available at the moment. Great value.

Horrible. Two twin beds, couldn't sleep on the uncomfortable pieces of junk. Only managed 2 hours sleep on the couch. Breakfast was bland, greasy and gross. Couldn't open closet because beds were in the way. TV couldn't get all channels. Poor service in restaurant / bar. Balcony door hard to open then wouldn't close. Cord from lamp stretched across path to balcony, I either almost tripped or broke lamp. Not only would not not recommend this place to a friend, I wouldn't recommend this place to someone I hated. I couldn't check out fast enough. Did I mention that is was horrible?
