Positive Reviews

Visitors to the University of Calgary

This location is unbeatable for anyone needing to stop close to the University of Calgary either for an event or visiting someone there. Parking is available on-site and there is a train station just across the road.

Welcoming staff

The staff at the hotel are friendly and approachable and go out of their way to make your stay the best it can be. Check-in is quick and efficient and reception staff are happy to give advice on where to visit in the local area. It is a dog-friendly property so your pet can travel with you.

Extra touches

The first thing to mention is the cool décor, lots of thought has gone into creating this hotel environment. There is a pool, gym, pool table and games in the social area. Wi-FI is super-fast and very reliable. Breakfast is often included with the room rate and surpasses expectations. This property is environmentally aware and it also gives you the option to skip a day’s maid service in return for a food and beverage voucher.

Negative Reviews

Style over substance?

Although the décor is visually pleasing the seats in the public area are not very comfortable and sound proofing could be improved as noise travels. Many guests have reported that the hotel corridors feel like a maze and it can be confusing trying to find your room.

Middle of nowhere

There is very little in the immediate vicinity and therefore it is not the type of place where you can just go for a wander of the local area. Unless you are going to the university or to the train station you would probably want to stay in the hotel. Some noise or vibrations may be experienced from the regular trains that pass by.

Limited food choices

The hotel bar offers some food choices but the menu is limited and there is hardly anything nearby to use as an alternative.
