Editor's Analysis
Updated on Aug 21, 2012
Overview
Located approximately a 14-minute drive (12 km) from Calgary International Airport (YYC) in Calgary's northeast quadrant and almost a 20-minute drive outside of the downtown area, this hotel is popular with leisure and business travellers who need easy access to the airport.

There are 106 rooms in this 3-storey hotel. Guests can choose from standard rooms, which have king, queen or double beds, or more spacious one-bedroom king suites, which can accommodate 4 people and also have a fridge and a microwave. Some suites have whirlpool tubs as well. In all rooms, guests can expect free Wi-Fi, a hair dryer, a coffeemaker and an iron and ironing board. Pets are not permitted at this hotel.

On-site amenities include a gym, an indoor pool and a hot tub. Free parking is available on site. While there is no on-site restaurant, there are a number of restaurants located within walking distance or a short drive away. Guests are offered a complimentary continental breakfast daily. Air travellers can take advantage of the hotel's free airport shuttle as well.

Guests will most likely need a vehicle to facilitate getting around to nearby attractions. The Sunridge Mall, one of Calgary's largest, is a 6-minute drive away. The Calgary Zoo is about a 15-minute drive from the hotel. Popular downtown attractions, like the Stampede Corral, the Calgary Tower and the Glenbow Museum, are just under 20 minutes away by car. (Distances and driving time estimates: Google Maps.)

Confirmed with a front desk agent: free parking, free Wi-Fi, breakfast and pet policy (call date: August 13, 2012).
The Good
Guests had plenty of praise for this hotel in the reviews used for this analysis. In particular, they really liked the service they received from staff as well as the continental breakfast.

Guests said that staff here were accommodating, friendly and helpful. One guest said that the staff made them feel right at home. Front desk and housekeeping staff were mentioned specifically.

The free continental breakfast was a hit with a number of guests. Several guests felt that having the breakfast included with the room rate was a nice touch. Many complimented the selection and the quality of the food offered.

Given that a number of guests using the hotel were air travellers, the proximity to the airport was a big plus. A number of guests mentioned that the location was convenient to downtown (a 19-minute drive) and to a number of shops and restaurants.

There was a sense from guests that there was good value received for the price paid at this hotel.

Rooms here were clean, comfortable, spacious and well configured, according to a number of guests.

There were a few additional positive comments about the pool and the hot tub and about comfy beds and pillows.

The Bad
Generally speaking, good reviews greatly outnumbered negative reviews of this hotel, among those used in this analysis, though there were a few isolated complaints.

Individuals noted the odour of cigarettes in one room, a noisy fan and whirlpool in another, and the difficulty some had finding the hotel.

"Feels like your at the cabin."
"I thought everything was fantastic. My girlfriend and I had a wonderful time there in one of the Jacuzzi suites. There was a microwave, fridge, jacuzzi, lucious bed and great desk with high speed internet to browse. I loved the cleanliness of the place and wood atmosphere. Front staff were very friendly and accomodated everything that we asked for promptly. The only complaint I have is that the pool could be longer and deeper and the weight room could be expanded a little larger. It felt crowded with only four people in there."

"The Complimentary breakfast is wonderful, but the young lady in the breaksfast area was rather 'kurt' when I asked for more of something close to the cut off time 9:30. I'm attribute to the attitude to over worked and trying to do a good job. Suggeestion to other users: Get to to the breakfast early as seating was extremely limited and the food was removed at 9:30 AM, no questions asked, just cleaned out! The hotel should staff at least 2 people in the complimentary breakfast area to replinsh food, clean tables and generally be available for location of spoons, extra food etc. In addition, the hotel should consider extending the hours of the Complimentary breakfast during the summer season until at least 10 AM. Especially the week leading up to Stampede weeks."
