Located approximately a 13 minute drive from Prince's Island Park in the heart of the downtown Calgary area, this hotel is popular with business travellers and with guests wanting to wander Calgary by foot, mostly because of the proximity to the business district and to area attractions.

There are 248 rooms of varying sizes in this all-suite hotel. All suites have a balcony, premium bedding, a wet-bar, a dining space for four, a mini-fridge, a hair dryer, a coffemaker, a kettle and an iron and an ironing board. There is parking available on site for $32/day (outdoor lot) and $29/day (in the parkade) Sunday-Thursday, and $8/day Friday-Saturday for all lots. Pets are not permitted at this hotel.
