            The location was excellent.

            This hotel is all about "lipstick and rouge" - the lobby looks great and your initial contact with staff was good. I found the front counter staff to be borderline friendly , almost terse that you were interrupting their very hectic paper shuffling. The restaurant did not open as scheduled on 2 of the 5 mornings I was there. Very disappointing for a business person running on a set schedule. The rooms were comfortable, but dated in the bathrooms, bathrooms could have used a good scrubbing. The pool didn't seem heated and the jacuzzi jets did not operate. I would rate my stay as "ok" 2.5 stars out of 5, only because the value was in the amount paid.

            Affordable, relaxed, near to tramway, so convenient for city centre.

            The location was awesome!!!!

            It is a bit outdated and a lil bit too exspensive for the room, plus parking was not included in the price which was a downfall

            The guy at the front desk was really nice. That's pretty much it ...

            I felt unsafe because my room was in a corner behind some fire exit. the elevator door opens while the elevator is still moving like a quarter of the way. I pulled out the plug of my laptop from the wall socket and the whole socket came out. I was washing my face and the facet head came off. The channels on the tv are locked and you barely get any. The headboard which seems o be held on the wall by sticky tac almost fell when I touched it....

            The house keeping was wonderful very nice the pool was nice could use some up grading.

            I had an come back to my hotel where there were two people having sex infront of my of my door . I called security they came and remove them! The next morning I went down to front desk they said they would cover our bill at moxies that night! So we went down for dinner we had an appitizer each and dinner we sent the bill to the front desk what we were told to do and the refused to pay the bill so we said in that case we will leave and wanted our money back! Well then they decided to pay so we stay we were really happy with how they fixed the problem but not so happy when it turned out to be a fight would I go back nope never!

            The location of the hotel is excellent. The C train is just outside and convenient to many parts of Calgary

            Ease of getting shuttle to airport

            Lack of reasonably priced place to eat.

            As a single, female traveller I felt very safe and looked after. The staff were so friendly and helpful. The room was lovely, very comfortable and the bar and staff were great.

            The front staff was very obliging, holding our luggage all day whilst we shopped. Our TV did not work when we arrived but they were very attentive and had it working whilst we were at dinner.

            The front desk did not offer to take our luggage to our room on arrival.

            Staff were very helpful and hotel was central

          • Older travelers
            5.8

            Fairly central location

            One male member of the front reception desk seriously needs to be retrained to understand 'service' means helping your guest. On Two occasions he was useless in helping us to enjoy our stay in Calgary

            Down stairs restaraunt

            The bed was very uncomfortablethey also over booked and asked if we could go to there other hotel 15 min drive from there, we were not interested

          • Group of friends
            8.2

            Th staff were helpful with temporary parking of my hire car. Also with storing luggage etc as they should be but it is not always so.

            The service at breakfast was terrible - a long wait for each item although the place was empty. In contrast the evening service was good albiet the place was busy. A colleage complained there were no grap handles or mat in the bath since he slipped
