This is the second Aloft I've stayed at and it did not disappoint. It was easy to find, with ample parking. It's a very modern hotel with a fun, young vibe. Staff at the front desk are always friendly & welcoming. Rooms are small but comfortable and tasteful. Great showers! First shower I've ever seen where you can turn the...

A colleague and I met in the Aloft for a beer some months back and I decided I would stay on my next Calgary trip. Definitely the right move - comfortable rooms with a good breakfast. Two minutes walk to the c-train then 12 minutes to downtown. Not many restaurants around but the WXYZ bar will do a great bar...

One of the best hotels I've ever stayed in. Staff is beyond friendly, hotel has a nice homey vibe, beds were super comfy, and breakfast on the morning was great. No complaints about this hotel at all.

Very comfortable beds, free parking and good breakfast. We stayed here because of it's close proximity to the c-train station while attending a show at the Jubilee Auditorium. Wifi was a bit slow but that doesn't shock me at any hotel.

This visit to aloft and the lounge has changed my next visit to Calgary to stay here. The Lounge and it's staff were top notch. A special hat's off to Annie, there is definitely more Annie's need in this world!!! She made it so much more enjoyable!

Loved the hotel. So sorry the restaurant is now closed. Clean, comfortable and convenient. The rooms are chic and the price is right.The location is great whether you need to get downtown or north in Calgary. Not many restaurants other than Phil's or McDonald's, but there are some great Chines restaurants on 16 Ave, which is close. Perfect location if...

It was terrible experience for me as I stayed there for about 5 days. It was booked by my company. However at the time of check-in they ask for credit card(still if it is booked by company), and at the time of check in they messed up with which card to deposit the amount (in case of early check outs)....
