Editor's Analysis
Updated on Aug 27, 2012
Overview
This hotel is located about a 13-minute drive south of downtown Calgary on Macleod Trail South (one of Calgary's major north-south arteries) and about a 5-minute drive from the Chinook Centre (one of Calgary's biggest shopping malls). This hotel is popular with guests who have access to a vehicle and don't mind driving to access shops, restaurants and attractions.

The hotel has 157 rooms and suites. Standard rooms offer either two double or two queen beds, king bed rooms offer a separate seating area. Six suites are available as well, some of which have a jetted tub. All rooms include free Wi-Fi, a flat-screen TV, a fridge, a hair dryer and an iron and ironing board. Pets are welcome for a cost of $20/night and the hotel offers a pet program called "Pet-Luv Inn Program," which includes a pet-friendly park guide to the city and a pet room service menu.

There are a variety of dining options on site at this hotel, including THÊ Restaurant (open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner), Ninety Thirty Dining Lounge (open daily for lunch and dinner) and Peanuts Sports Bar (open daily for lunch, dinner and drinks). There is also a bakery on site offering baked goods, and a lounge for guests to unwind at with a drink. On-site amenities include a gym and an outdoor pool (open seasonally). Free on-site parking is available as well.

The hotel is less than a 15-minute drive to a cluster of attractions in the downtown area, including the Stampede Corral and the Calgary Tower. There is a C-Train stop (which gives travellers easy access to downtown) located a 2-minute walk from the hotel. Heritage Park Historical Village (about a 7-minute drive) and Fort Calgary (about a 13-minute drive) are both north of the hotel. Guests travelling by air should budget about 23 minutes to travel the 26 km between the hotel and Calgary International Airport (YYC). (Distances and driving time estimates: Google Maps)
