Editor's Analysis
Updated Dec 17, 2014
Overview
Located a 14-minute drive from Calgary International Airport (YYC) and just over a 15-minute walk to Sunridge Mall (one of Calgary's largest), this hotel is popular with air travellers and those seeking extended-stay facilities or preferring to stay outside of the downtown core.

All 96 rooms have free Wi-Fi, a full kitchen (including a fridge, a microwave, a dishwasher and a stove), premium cable HDTV, a CD and DVD player, work space, a coffeemaker, a hair dryer and an iron and ironing board. There are studio suites  (choice of king or queen beds) or suites with separate bedrooms available. Pets are allowed at this hotel for $75 per pet, per stay.

While there is no on-site restaurant, guests are offered a daily hot buffet breakfast and weeknight appetizers and light meals on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays all for free. There are a number of restaurants located within a 5- to 10-minute walk from the hotel. Additional hotel amenities include free parking, a free airport shuttle, a business centre, a gym, an indoor pool with a waterslide and a hot tub. 

One of the most popular attractions in the north end of Calgary is the Calgary Zoo (a 10-minute drive away). The downtown area (which is where the Stampede Corral, the Calgary Tower and the business district are all located), is about a 18-minute drive away. (All distances and driving time estimates: Google Maps)

Confirmed with a front desk agent: free Wi-Fi, airport shuttle, hot breakfast and parking, weeknight meals, all day coffee and laundry, pet policy (call date: September 11, 2014).

Guests really enjoyed the weekday meals and some gave descriptions of meals that were happily enjoyed for free.

The Bad
The bulk of the reviews used for this analysis were complimentary (in fact, negative comments were far and few between).

A few guests had issues with access to the hotel. A couple of guests felt that signage was confusing and that the hotel was difficult to find. A few guests indicated that the on-site parking was awkward (you can't access it from the main street) and difficult to access.

There were some peripheral comments from guests in rooms on the Barlow Trail (west) side of the hotel, who were bothered by street noise.

"Treated like royalty"

"From the moment we arrived we were treated like royalty. Friendly, knowledgeable staff, all the amenities we needed. Our flight required us to leave before 6am and they had coffee, fruit and granola bars for us as the breakfast room was not yet open. Great experience!"
