Overview
Approximately a 13 minute drive from Calgary International Airport (YYC), this airport hotel offers a complimentary airport shuttle that air travellers find very useful, and runs based on guest demand. On-site amenities include an indoor heated pool with a waterslide, a hot tub and a gym.

There are a variety of different room configurations, sizes and bed types to choose, from standard guest rooms to suites, some of which have a separate bedroom and a kitchenette. In all rooms at this non-smoking hotel, there is free Wi-Fi, a microwave, a mini-fridge, a hair dryer, an iron and an ironing board and a flat screen TV. Parking on site is complimentary, and pets are not allowed at this hotel.

Although there is no dining on site, guests are offered a complimentary continental breakfast daily.

For guests wanting to see more of Calgary than just the airport, a vehicle is required. The downtown area, which is home to a number of attractions (including the Calgary Tower, the Stampede Corral and the Glenbow Museum) is just under a 20 minute drive away. The Calgary Zoo is about a 15 minute drive away (distances and driving time estimates: Google Maps).

Confirmed with a front desk agent: free Wi-Fi, parking, shuttle, hot & cold breakfast (call date: September 11, 2014).

"We found the beds uncomfortably hard, and the swimming pool was pretty cold for an inside pool. When we checked in the counter person was not all that helpful, but when we checked out the person on was very helpful. We really enjoyed the contential breakfast. We probably won't stay at this location again, unless the rates go down to match the service."

"I found it disapointing there was not restaurant as we have a small child, therefore we needed to leave the hotel to eat. As well I found the elevator to be way to small for the amount of people needing to use it."
