Excellent staff, always pleasant and willling to help - rooms are clean and very good house keeping - hotel is getting a bit dated e.g. slow single elevator, heating in the rooms needs to be updated

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by VictoriaPhil Bathroom needs maintiance
I stayed room 904 and there were issues with the shower rod in the bathroom. The rod is one of those outwards curved ones, which is fine but the mounts were bent. Maybe a previous guest was pulling on it? So the shower curtain would sag into the centre. This was super annoying as I was showering the curtain wouldn't stay closed and would slide to the middle. I would continuously try closing it and trying to hold it. By the end of my shower there was a huge puddle on the floor of the bathroom. Very annoying and shows that they need some maintenance in their bathrooms here.

The building is very old and the rooms are outdated.
First room I was put in was very smelly and I was moved to another room. I had to move again the next day (4 night stay) b/c it was booked.
Staff were attentive and I have no issues with them. The locale is less than desirable too since it is on the edge of downtown with many "interesting" folks around.
Seems very overpriced for an out of date hotel.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Moi2013 Standard room
Standard room. Microwave and fridge useful. Should be more ecological and offer the possibility of using the towels again or not change the sheet. Exercice room unavailable when I was there. No pool, sauna or other facilities to relax. Overall, expensive for what you have but follow the market price.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Rhinoh Great location in Calgary
Stayed at the hotel on business on my first ever trip to Calgary, found that my office was all the way over the other side of town, but this did not matter as the hotel is close to the C-Train station and is in the free ride zone downtown.
I didn't drive so couldn't take advantage of the hotels free parking but the parjade looked safe and secure.
Rachael on the front desk was very helpful and assisted in anything that I requested.
The balcony was strange as it was small and had no furniture on it so it's not like you could sit out there and enjoy a coffee but nice to have.
I always request a room on a high floor for noise but they could not do this for me on this stay, and so I did have the noise of the street and also the hotel has a pub next door where the ocupants come outside to smoke and shout so could hear that also, I was on the third floor.
The hotel overall was nice and when I come to Calgary again I will stay there again, I love that you have a Shaw box with cable guide so that I could see what was on.
Breakfast was the normal Holiday Inn Express breakfast, nice and fresh as always and one day I had an apointment so had to leave early, they gave me a bag to take breakfast away with me.
All the staff are friendly and the hotel was nice overall, I had an enjoyable stay for business.
