Had a business trip in Calgary. Decent hotel - nothing too bad or outstanding. Room is OK but could use a remodeling to freshen up the appearance. Bed was comfortable. Nearby construction and local transit train was the only minus staying here. Had dinner at the hotel restaurant was really busy so dinner was slow (30 mins for a burger!)....

The atmosphere at this hotel is odd and quite cold. It almost felt as there was no one else in the whole building. The rooms are spacious and bathrooms are okay. The price that we got for a few nights was its redeeming feature

Cheap and well located in downtown Calgary, does not have any luxury or too much comfort - beds are okay, we got a queen bed which was smaller then regular size bed...but if you are looking for a cheap place to stay right in the core of Calgary, thats the place =)

We checked in and it was dark and just not a happy place...The staff there are all super nice and helpful. AND the food was really good!! Bed was comfy and it was clean, just not an uplifting place if you have to stay for a while. Paint was chipping and it was very rundown for a remodeled room. Again,...

I stayed here for 5 nights while on business in Calgary. The hotel is quite old and in serious need of a major reno. I found the hotel dark and dreary, with paper this walls.

Dear CM044, Thank you for choosing our property while in Calgary. Our 201 room property has been smoke-free for several years and all carpets changed since the policy was implemented. Seemingly the smell you experienced came from neighboring hotel guests not abiding by hotel policy. We are disappointed and sorry to learn you felt the room was not clean and...
