Editor's Analysis
Updated Nov 9, 2014
Located on Macleod Trail South, near two of Calgary's biggest shopping malls (South Centre, a 7-minute drive away, and Chinook Centre, a 6-minute drive away), this hotel is popular with travellers who are seeking budget accommodations.

Guests can choose from two doubles, one king or one queen bed, and can expect free Wi-Fi, a hair dryer, a coffeemaker and an iron and an ironing board in all of the rooms. There is free parking available on site, and pets are permitted for a cost of $25/day.

On-site amenities include a gym, an indoor pool and a hot tub. There are no restaurants on site, but there are dining options located within walking distance of the hotel. Guests are offered a complimentary continental breakfast daily. 

Some of Calgary's main attractions (Stampede Corral, the Calgary Tower and the Glenbow Museum), as well as the business district, are housed in the downtown area, which is about a 13-minute drive straight up north on Macleod Trail. The Calgary Zoo is another popular attraction, and is about a 15-minute drive away. Guests travelling by air should expect about a 24-minute drive to travel the 27 km between the hotel and Calgary International Airport (YYC). (All distances and driving time estimates: Google Maps).
