Positive Reviews

Very good downtown location

Many guests have loved the location of this hotel, as it is right in the heart of downtown Calgary and close to numerous bars and restaurants. Attractions like the Stampede Grounds and the Scotiabank Saddledome are in the area and can be walked to in under half an hour.

Friendly, polite staff

Numerous guests have commented on the hotel's staff, saying that they are friendly and polite. The housekeeping staff, in particular, has had positive interactions with many guests of the hotel and has made their stays even better.

Close to public transit

Guests have liked the fact that the hotel is very close to a CTrain station. From this station, guests can travel to other parts of the city in a matter of minutes at a reasonable cost.

Negative Reviews

Rooms are too dark

Past guests have complained that the rooms are too dark at this property. The decor inside the rooms is dark in colour and the lighting doesn't appear to be great, especially in the bathrooms, which is the main reason for these complaints.

Old and dated

There have been complaints about the property as a whole being old and outdated. Guests have felt as though the hotel could use a thorough renovation in the near future to get it back up to standard.

Thin walls and noise

A number of guests have noticed that the walls at this property are quite thin, which has led to a fair amount of noise making its way into the rooms. Ending up with a loud guest in a neighbouring rooms could make it difficult to sleep while staying there.
