We love the Aloft with its funky vibe and happy, down-to-earth service. It does, however, seem at odds with its own ecological initiative to Make A Green Choice. In the rooms, cards remind the guest that green is good, and that travelling this path will have its own rewards. The Earth-conscious guest who foregoes housekeeping for three days can earn...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 4 weeks ago via mobile

The only room at the Hyatt was over $1000. The Weston was $400. So, I considered alternatives and found Aloft Calgary University at $150/night. The price includes breakfast. The hotel is clean and modern. The staff is very friendly and helpful. There is a little cafe where you can buy something to eat 24hours. There is a lounge that is...

Aloft's washroom is nice and modern. Very clean hotel. Rooms are not big and the décor will give you a headache. It's like techno modern. Breakfast was included. Pool is a relaxing pool. Overall it is a good hotel.

I was taking my son to Calgary for a little road trip and decided to switch it up a bit from where we normally stay? It was a nice hotel with smaller rooms but more than enough room for us, the room was clean & the bed comfortable, the pool was on the small side also but nice and warm,...

Check in was speedy, staff were very efficient and polite. My room was waaaaaay in the back. it was a longer hike to get there from the lobby, however it was quiet so I am not complaining at all. There really isn't a view from that room - mostly of a parking lot. The room was small but efficient. The...

I stayed for one night for business. The staff were very helpful and accommodating as I did not like my first room. It was on the ground floor and when I opened the curtains the cars/trucks are literally filling the whole window! They very kindly put me on the 3rd floor instead. Still looks straight onto another building so it's...

Loved this clean modern casual hotel. Free tasty breakfast in the multipurpose lounge (bar/casual restaurant in the evening) free of the sugary pre-packaged cakes which are such a feature of chain hotel breakfasts. Comfy beds, clean well designed bathroom with the basin separate from the shower and toilet. About a 10 minute drive to downtown and Kensington and 10 minutes...

I've stayed at this hotel several times in the past few years and was pleasantly surprised upon check-in on my most recent visit to discover a band and free drinks in the longe. This added to my positive experience and can't wait to come back.

Our first time staying at this hotel was quite by accident. It was evening a last minute stay. After trying to book in a couple of hotels in the area that didn't accept dogs (we were travelling with our West Highland Terrier) we were lucky to come across this gem. Not only did they accept our dog at no extra...
