Fabulous 8.8 From 1,275 reviews

Fair 4.0
When checking in there was no room available for us. The staff advises that due to us booking via Expedia they looked after their direct bookings first. We booked a King size bed newly renovated room. We were offered two twin beds. Or.. for $80 a night we could upgrade to a queen bed club level room. What a complete joke. Disgusting service denying the room we booked and trying to upsell at the counter. After 40 min of no room, a non renovated king room became available.. with the note that a wedding was on and the room would Be extremely noisy!?

Fantastic spot for someone who wishes to shop & walk Calgary CBD. Easy access to buses, tram or by foot for parks, china town, shops, great bars & restaurants. The staff so helpful! I mentioned about lost luggage so staff when checking in so they upgraded us to make our day a better experience. Thank you. It worked.
