"The hotel was good. However, I wish it had been a bit closer to the airport as that is how it is advertised. Yet, it took a fair bit of time to get to."

Jodi from Whitecourt, AB CA rated Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites Airport Calgary 6 out of 10 on August 07, 2011 Verified Guest Hotel Review

"The hotel was nice but the free shuttle was a joke. After waiting 45 minutes for it to arrive at the airport, it was too small to fit all the passengers (7 in total). We were told we would have to wait another 45 minutes for it to return. Seeing as it was already 1:00 in the morning and we had to be back at the airport at 6:30, we decided to take a cab. Cab fare was $25.00! We chose this hotel because it was close to the airport, but because of construction, it was more than a 2.5 km trip. Overall, what we paid was not worth the money!"

Kathryn from Millbrook, ON CA rated Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites Airport Calgary 8 out of 10 on August 03, 2011 Verified Guest Hotel Review

"Good quality and reasonably priced for Alberta"
"I find generally hotels in Alberta are quite expensive compared to Ontario. That said this hotel was more reasonably priced and quality did not suffer. The kids LOVED the water slide, and I was pleasantly surprised by the nice breakfast included in the fee. We left too early for the hot breakfast but there was a lot on offer that we could make up ourselves (toast/oatmeal/fruit etc)."
