They did things right when they modernized this former Quality Inn. Ultra modern design, comfortable beds, and all the in room amenities, including a pillow, chewie, water/food dish and ball for our dog--what a surprise. Excellent full buffet breakfast and a great front desk, especially Christina, whom I had spoken to on the phone to confirm my reservation and who...

Very modern hotel, unexperienced staff, terrible breakfast but granted it was free. The staff were very nice and helpful but clearly inexperienced. The breakfast was pretty bad but it was given free with the room so I expected such. Finally the design was quite modern and many people might find that annoying. In addition to all of this the room...

If you don't like modern, do not stay here. The walls are black.....black carpet to be exact.....not kidding .The front desk staff can be found talking on the phone while sitting on the front desk.....not kidding. The sugar packets in my room were opened and par used....not kidding. There is not one bathtub in the building. Not everyone likes a...

This is the first time Thani have stayed in these hotels and I am very pleased with the concept of the hotel. Rooms are spacious, comfortable beds, bathrooms well designed. A good option in Calgary. In the area there are lots of choices of restaurants

I stayed at the hotel from sept 26th to sept 29 and had the pleasure of spending time in the lounge for dinner and/or after dinner drink. Though the food was good as well as the decor pleasant; the customer service I received from Taelor and Annie made the experience exceptional. Their kindness, attentiveness, sense of humour was unexpected, but...

My husband and I stayed here just for one night. Checked in late and left early (so not entirely a full experience review). Not bad for the price point. Super trendy, good location, rooms were clean and staff was friendly. I found our experience there a bit forgetful (not necessarily a bad thing). Only complaint is that I could hear...

We stayed at the Aloft for 8 nights whilst visiting family recently. We chose the aloft because of the indoor pool, proximity to the tram and the reasonable price. It did deliver on all these aspects but there were a few things that disappointed us about the Aloft. The 'free' breakfast left much to be desired. The saying ' you...
