Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by phebert7 Good value, but beware
This was a great price and the interior of the hotel is perfectly nice. My room was very new and fresh.
However, the windows are so old that I could hear every word of the conversation of passersby on the street, which made it hard to get to sleep. Ask for a higher floor away from the street. On the 2nd floor with a balcony, my patio door did not lock well. This is important as this is a pretty shady part of downtown. I am not skittish but there were lots of police events in the immediate area in the 4 nights I stayed here.
The evening manager was very sweet and helped me organize my early departure when my work schedule changed, Very helpful.
Just not for the nervous traveller!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by abamster Great stay overall
Comfortable, quiet, and clean room, great service. Awesome bed, very clean and nice-smelling towels. Appreciated the small details such as complementary newspapers in the lobby. Only suggestions for improvement would be to brew stronger coffee and buy nicer bread for breakfast, and use reusable plates, cups, and cutlery rather than disposable one (which would result in a better dining experience as well as be better for the environment). But great value for money overall.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mohie Very enjoyable stay and relaxing sleep
It was a very great time 4 days we had at the hotel, great breakfast which was almost enough for each day. The service was excellent and good listening staff. We had an excellent time that I may even ask where do you get your beds from? Very comfortable to sleep on.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Restive Convenient, quiet, friendly
The desk staff went above and beyond in helping me locate places within easy walking distance for my personal shopping needs and they even taught me a whole new level of skills on my tablet! I loved starting my day with the included buffet breakfast. Most comfortable pillows I've ever had at a hotel, too. Also, the streets in the neighborhood felt very safe even at night. Would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kanman Unexpected Stay
Downtown Calgary recently experienced a major power outage due to an underground electical fire. Our apartment building as well as approximately 100 other building were without power or water for 5 days.
As a result we were forced to vacate our apartment Sunday afternoon and find accomodations elsewhere. The Holiday Inn is only 2 blocks from home so we decided to give it a try, not expecting too much due to the obvious unexpected demand on rooms and the fact that it was a long weekend.
When we arrived we were not only provided with a room but given a significant discount due to the situation. We could not have been happier.
The check in and check out staff were both friendly, helpful and professional.
I would highly recommend this property for either business or leisure travellers.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MetalJibbies great place to stay
I was in Calgary attending a conference. The convention center was 10 blocks away. At first this bothered me. But the comfort and ease of using this hotel made everything fine. Friendly and helpful staff. VERY comfortable bed. Good (and FREE) wireless internet. Could have used an in-room safe but maybe that's just me
The hotel is in the free-ride zone of downtown Calgary, so in the morning I could catch the train (stop RIGHT behind the building) and be at the conference in minutes. I'd walk back in the afternoons/evenings and never felt unsafe doing so.
