Free parking just on the edge of downtown Calgary. The rooms are modern and they had a fantastic complimentary continental breakfast. Staff was very accommodating. I would definitely stay here again when in town.

Location perfect and easy to find, just a few blocks from MEC. Free parking and very helpful staff. Breakfast the usual. Disposable holiday inn stuff, but all good and available as a takeout. Room very quiet. Just a short walk from the c train.

Great hotel downtown area. close to the downtown trams which are free to jump on and off in the tram. There's no bar and the pub next door is recommended but we didn't like it. The hotels rooms are large and clean and the staff were friendly. There was free onsite parking.

This hotel is located just one block from the Kerby train station. You can be into the middle of the city in less than 10 minutes. The hotel is just west of the city so it is also a pretty quite location. The rooms are fantastic, my room on the 4th floor was huge and also had a spa bath...

We chose this hotel for its location, free parking, and free breakfast! We were really impressed with how comfortable and beautiful the rooms was! The breakfast was really good and the staff very helpful! We just had to walk a short distance to the free tram, leaving our car safely in their garage. I highly recommend this HIE!!

Having visited Calgary a few times over the years, I have always found that I am greeted extremely well by everybody, so staying at the hotel in downtown Calgary and meeting great people was not surprising. The rooms are very well maintained and pleasant and useful with a mini kitchen. The breakfast was vast, great coffee and a fantastic selection...

Victoria, Canada
Reviewed 12 September 2016

The hotel is updated, clean and is a great value for the location and size of room. The comfort of the bed alone would warrant a great review but the rooms are very nice with separate bedroom from the living room and kitchenette. Free parking is also a great perk. I'd definitely stay here again.

This hotel is recently renovated, and unlike many other hotel renovations, this was done right. The room I had was on the 5th floor, overlooking the back lane(normally they probably would not do that to gold/platinum members) but it was a spacious suite with a king bed and pull out couch. The hotel was very quiet, shower pressure was fantastic,...
