Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Enroute101 Great choice for Calgary
Hotel is about 3 - 4 blocks from central business core and easy walking distance to Calgary train. Ask for a newly renovated room which are excellent. Exterior of hotel and immediate block is no great shakes but beyond that everything is really good. Great choice in downtown Calgary which can be overpriced. This hotel is just as good as some of the 4 star choices, certainly room comfort wise is very good. Staff were delightful and very helpful. I would definitely stay again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Larkin59 Convenient Hotel
Renovations were awesome, more than what I had expected at a Holiday Inn. Holiday Inn has been a hotel of convenience for me, but the Downtown Calgary Hotel with its renovations were awesome.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Billy00 clean, standard, no surprises
This Holiday Inn was as expected with clean rooms, and standard amenities. Breakfast is fair but is standard for HI Express.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CarloM Always a pleasant stay
I have stayed at this HI several times in the past 12 months. The staff is top notch and the manager is always available and very attentive. The rooms are clean and the hotel is very well located relative to the downtown core. I usually walk (about 15 minutes) to the city center but cabs are also readily available if that's your preference and they'll have you there in less than 5 minutes. Good breakfast, parking and internet. I always stay here when in Calgary. Recommended !

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NO21 Overall a Great Stay! Highly Recommend!
Overall a fantastic time spent here while on a training weekend. Staff was super friendly, helpful and actually concerned about my security (not even the delivery guy could get up to my room without the front desk gent calling up to confirm it was ok!) Wide variety of choices for breakfast although I wouldn't recommend trying the eggs...Recently renovated room had a super comfy bed plus the option to choose the firmness of the pillow I desired! The updates were very classy with the only possible complaint I can think of being that the carpet was too soft and plush to roll my suitcase across smoothly! The only downfall is also a big bonus in its location immediately downtown, this was such a convenient location to where my training was being conducted however it was also pretty convenient to the locals hitting up the nearby bars making it a bit noisey at times overnight. Definitely recommend this hotel all the same, the great service in particular made a lasting impression!

I'm never disappointed with IHG. Through and through, they are a quality hotel chain with good understanding of the hospitality industry.
It was unfortunate that during our stay here, the key-card system wasn't working, and we had to be escorted to our room w/ security when wanted to gain access to it. This was more of a nuisance than I was expecting.
This particular hotel comes at a much higher cost than the other IHG hotels in Calgary and area, and other than it being downtown, I can't really understand why. If I hadn't been using rewards points, I would have chosen another one of their hotels.
The exterior of the hotel could use a face-lift, especially considering its down-town. The rooms were up to par with other IHG facilities, but the exterior looked fairly dated.
