        • Group of friends
          7.8

          It was a great value. Room was a decent size. Staff at front desk were pleasant. Lot's of parking available and is right downtown Calgary.

          This is going to sound ridiculous but my only dislike is the fact that the only mirror in the room was in the bathroom which was small and was really inconvenient with four gay friends to one room. I asked for a second mirror of any kind to be brought up but never received one.

          The location was perfect for me. Also, continental breakfast was really great - so many choices and lots of fruit. A really enjoyable part of my stay. The large room provided more than enough space for my family to visit, since it was a sad occasion for me (my brother's funeral). A truly enjoyable stay at this hotel.

          I cannot think of anything I did not like about this hotel.

          The suite had a kitchenette, as well as a couch to relax on

          The man that checked us in was not very pleasant in explaining why we couldn't use a certain coupon

        • Older travelers
          9.6

          Very friendly staff. Very "business friendly" both with free wireless internet and use of business facilities when needed. Great breakfast. Free parking much appreciated. Overall a very enjoyable stay.

          Good location in town, although not extremely close to the real centre so good restaurants ans shopping were not outside the door. However, this was not an issue for us. Otherwise, we were very pleasantly surprised that we enjoyed our stay as much as we did!

        • Single
          8.8

          I was impressed by the microwave, hotplate, coffee machine, utensils and dishes provided. It was also spacious with a separate living/kitchen area. One could really use the hotel as a base on longer visits. The free parking was also an excellent draw.

        • Single
          7.0

          Location, size of the room

          Breakfast and room decoration both could be improved

        • Couple
          6.6

          Great location, super close to 17th av and within walking distance of atephen av and the saddledome. Free parking is a huge plus. Bed was comfortable, and the kitchenette would be useful for a longer stay if you got sick of eating out.

          A little pricey for the level of accommodation (I suppose the location justifies it...), Room was a little smaller than expected, and there were a few construction/city noises through the night...

        • Group of friends
          6.2

          I like the breakfast there and the location is very quite

          Room was very cold and the heater condition is very noisy and the staf there could not fix it , so I changed the hotel after two days staing to stay the other 9 days in another hotel .

        • Single
          8.2

          The business centre is free and great to use.

          The suites could use a style update.

        • Single
          4.2

          very general ..dont expect more

          big room.. but slow services and not that worth

        • Older travelers
          7.8

          Great hotel with suite facilities making it versatile for self catering if wanted,free breakfast fantastic value,large rooms very comfortable.Quiet to sleep but near the Calgary stampede (15 minute walk)and a short walk into city centre(15 mins walk)bars,restaurants,cafes all on doorstep.Staff friendly and helpful strored luggage no problem airport shuttle picks up large car park if you have a car.

        • Older travelers
          7.4

          Free parking. Location and proximity to some downtown amenities.

          Arrived at 3:45 and there were no rooms that were clean. Air conditioning in room is very very loud!!!
