I stayed for 5 nights for a business trip. The wifi was extremely bad in the room. It was not just intermittent - it was impossible to log on. One morning there was no hot water for a 6.45am shower. The hotel response was "we are full and everybody uses wifi and hot water". Not recommended.

The hotel was sold out... so the showers were cold and the WiFi kept failing. There was a dent in the wall of my room and the room layout was awkward and inconvenient. Tiny cramped bathroom. Uninspiring decor. Staff are friendly and try hard but don't make up for the shortcomings of an older hotel with aging amenities. Needs a...

After reading so many scathing reviews about the Sandman, I was worried what I was letting myself in for, but I turned out to be pleasantly surprised. We found it easy to navigate our way into the city and we parked on the underground car park without any problems (charge was $34 for 3 nights, which I thought was reasonably...

Happy to recommend this fine hotel. All expected amenities are here? Clean rooms, comfy beds. Maybe a bit dated. The toilet suite was unstable. Restaurant very good value. Location is great with free trams outside. Stay a while as Calgary has lots to see and do.

We as hoteliers, who are in the industry of building and maintaining relationships, empathize with your frustration and undoubtedly cooperated with the authoritative parties upon your request. It is unfortunate that the outcome established by the...

We can fully understand your frustration regarding your having to absorb the smoking violation fee that was recognized by your acknowledgment during your arrival process, however to avoid these types of penalties, refraining from from smoking in our non-smoking property, would have avoided the disappointment that you have experienced. Our non-smoking policy is enforced ultimately to allow for all our...

Stayed here for one night. Not originally planning to stay here however the recent flood had closed our hotel. Very central location, close to transport, shops, Calgary Tower. Would not wander around at night alone. Staff seemed friendly enough. Room was basic and served the purpose. Spacious enough for a family of four and beds quite comfortable. Food in the...

This hotel might have been a reasonable deal when it was built 40 or so years ago, but it falls far short of today's standards for a hotel in the downtown area of a small city. The walls are paper-thin, the bathroom in my room was minute with a washbasin more suited to an airliner, the decor is tired and...
