Very goodBased on  71  reviews

    Superb

    It was nice, good resurant, friendly helpful staff

    We were in a back room south west, where a loud compressor kept kicking in and out, The way some of the other guests parked made it very difficult to get around the building.

  • 9.2
    Superb

    It is convenient to the train, has many dining opportunities in the area, easy to get to from the West, friendly staff, adequate breakfast bar, convenient to the University and stadium

    Had some trouble getting the Wireless Internet connection. Lots of kids running around, messing up the sitting areas, late into the night.

  • 7.8
    Fabulous

    Value for money, (free internet, swimming pool, gymnasium, free 24hr coffee bar).

    In proportion the bathroom is a bit on the small side.

  • 7.8
    Fabulous

    The front end staff was so very friendly. When you are greeted so nicely right away you can overlook minor problems.

    our bathroom could use some updating. Ceiling tile was stained and edging was rusting

  • 4.6
    Guest rating

    The only good aspect is the location.

    The room is a substandard size room with a larger queen size bed, not a King size bed, only two small towels in the bathroom. Only a few basic toiletries. Pretty normal breakfast. Very ordinary. The general sensation is that of a cheap managed place using a good name.

  • 9.6
    Exclusive

    the staff could not have been more helpful.the ease of access to both city (centre and downtown ) and surrounding country side and trips.

    possibly that there was only one restaurant.

    Guest rating

    The breakfast was very nice and well looked after by a staff person. The light rail system is very close but crosswalks are needed.

    The farther down the hall we went the colder and darker it seemed. Not a very warm homey feeling.

  • 9.6
    Exclusive

    The hotel offers high comfort and is conveniently located in a relatively quiet area, but with an easy access to Calgary downtown by the light railway. The staff was extremely helpful - I stayed in the hotel for two separate nights and in between I went to hike in the Rockies, so they allowed me to leave much of my luggage in their office.

    The price for the second night was rather high, but it was due to the Stampede period, during which probably all the hotels in Calgary increase their prices.

  • 8.2
    Fabulous

    The location is very convenient and the hotel is clean and well kept.

    The price is in keeping with the area, but the breakfast lacked in variety.

  • 6.6
    Good

    The staff was exceptional in service, friendliness, and support. Thai restaurant was good and a surprise bonus.

    Rooms are small and not very modern. The decor dated but still appealing. Television was small and reception not clear. Pricing is very high for the value. Rates should be in the $99/$109 range, not $139/$149. I will look elsewhere for my next trip to this area.

    Staff were extremely helpful and ensured that everything during our stay went smoothly. The room was clean and well equipped. The hotel was convenient for the train station where it was easy to travel around the town. It was very good value for money.

    I was most disappointed with the breakfast, not least because everything was served in polystyrene cups and bowls. Extremely environmentally-unfriendly.
