The Good
Guests typically enjoyed their stay at this hotel.

Guests liked the rooms. They were clean, updated and had comfortable beds and good showers.

The location was convenient. It was close to the C-Train stop and an easy ride to downtown. The university and Foothills Hospital were very close by and guests found restaurants an easy walk away.

Guests really liked the staff. They were described as very friendly, helpful and eager to serve. One guest wrote, "they go above and beyond your expectations to ensure your experience is positive."

Breakfast and other meals were enjoyed. Guests often said the food was very good on site. Rockies has a nice menu and generous portions and breakfast was well liked with lots of fresh fruit, hot items and vegetables.

Underground parking was a great perk according to guests.

Guests who booked events were particularly impressed with the staff's organization and the hotel's food services.

The Bad
Recent reviews were quite positive overall but there was the occasional complaint or nitpick found.

Some guests mentioned noise coming from the atrium where the indoor pool and restaurants were located and suggested getting a room higher up.

Occasionally guests mentioned that the elevator was older, shook and sometimes had a mind of its own.

Other recent complaints were: no extractor fan in the bathroom, duvet too heavy for summer, hot tub water not hot enough, computers in the business centre not always working properly and bed was a bit hard.
