Positive Reviews

Very good location

Most guests of this hotel have loved its location. The property is located in downtown Calgary, just a few blocks from the Calgary Stampede Grounds, the Scotiabank Saddledome, and 17th Avenue. Countless dining and entertainment options are within walking distance of the property.

Large, clean rooms

Many guests have enjoyed the rooms at the hotel, as they are very large and kept extremely clean. This helped guests to have a comfortable stay at the hotel without having to worry about the state or quality of their rooms.

Comfortable beds and bedding

The mattresses at this hotel are very comfortable, according to past guests, and the bedding is high in quality. This helped guests to get a good night's sleep while staying at the hotel.

Negative Reviews

Poor breakfast

Numerous guests have complained about the hotel's free breakfast, saying that the food isn't very good and that the breakfast room is quite cramped. Guests found many of the food items to be cold and, therefore, inedible and, as a result, chose to eat elsewhere.

Noisy heating units

There have been complaints about the heating units in the rooms at this property. Guests have mentioned that these heating units produce a great deal of noise, making it difficult to relax in the rooms, especially when it's cold outside and they have to run continuously.

Can't use the balconies

Past guests haven't liked the fact that the balcony doors are bolted shut and, therefore, you can't get onto the balconies off the rooms. Guests would have liked to relax on their balconies during their stays.
