Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 199 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice Hotel and Great Service The staff at this location is excellent and the hotel is clean and safe. It may not be in downtown, however it is close and will be your best bet for the price. June 16, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by A Very Good Holiday Inn The staff makes this hotel as well as location. You are made to feel a special guest. The staff is attentive and sincere. I look forward to returning on my next trip June 11, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Clean and Comfortable Rooms are clean and the beds and pillows are better then the standard Holiday Inn. For someone looking for a good sleep this is a decent older property. June 10, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Turned around my thinking on Holiday Inn This was a nice property and turned around my thinking about Holiday Inn. I grade on a curve with a C or 5 being a good, average, solid score. I would definitely stay again. June 9, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by A stay of very good and not good at all... Desk staff - excellent Shuttle driver - excellent Restaurant food and service from wait staff - excellent Bar tender - unfriendly Beer - flat and warm Room - all OK except house cleaning was late everyday - well after 4:00pm and I needed to call the front desk. Did not clean the toilet on any of the days of my stay. Did not clean shower or vacuum since I was in the room when it was cleaned. I even offered a $5.00 tip per day as I always do so. June 9, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Amazing renovation I stay in a lot of hotels and the renovation done to this Holiday Inn is one of the best I've seen in this class of hotel. The lobby and room look great and the fitness center is very nice. June 6, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by New Take on an Old Hotel It is amazing how they have done renovations to the lobby, restaurant and entry ways yet it's still the same old drab rooms with no where to plug in your electronic devices once you get inside. The restaurant food is overpriced with poor food quality and service. Not a good upgrade at all. I am guessing this is why at peak times the restaurant is empty with staff busily chatting amongst themselves or texting. When you have to have a discussion over an additional charge of $2.00 for a Caesar salad when it is listed as a side it makes one wonder. Also the food quality is still the same overcooked, overpriced, small portions. The plate is certainly large perhaps that's what makes the portions look so small, lol. Overall its a bed close to the airport with not much more to offer than that. Thanks.. June 3, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Last Time I've given this place a few chances. Loyal IHG customer, just not at this place. Terrible beds. Mattresses are only a few inches thick at best. Last time I stayed here I was given the key to a room where someone was already staying in that room. I wasn't compensated in anyway and a manager never contacted me like I asked. This recent time I was told I could either have my priority club points or a bottle of water and granola bar, but not both. That's a first for me as well. June 1, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by sur charge $50 charge on my credit card for incidentals not good as you have my card already. now I have to follow up to make sure I got my credit. will not stay at your hotel again. I don't need you to make work for me. bad idea to charge and have to wait 3 to 5 business days to get it back bed on a slope tap in room loose . May 19, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great staff great service I would definitely return to this property again. The staff was very friendly. The new lounge and restaurant were amazing. May 19, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by wrong room The first time I went to my assigned room the door card would not work. Had to take all my luggage back down to lobby to get new card. The desk clerk said well you can't put them next to another card. The card had never left my hand. Took card back to room opened door to gentleman already in room, when I asked how long he'd been there he said all day. Took all luggage down to desk again clerk checked her computer and said no way was anyone in that so she called the room man answered phone. I told her I was not happy she said I will give you 500 xtra points. I said that is the same thing I get for being a plantinum member and not good enough. I had to call coporate. The same desk clerk gave me wrong directions to restraint. May 16, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great place to stay in Calgary – 15 plus min from airport. Fresh paint and new carpet are always welcome. Stayed on fourth floor with a mountain view albeit a small window but, still a much better view than most hotels (maybe a little better view on the fifth floor). Even with what looked like a fully booked hotel the elevator was quick and there was always someone around to answer questions. Check in was a little slow but, I did request a room change so understandable. It took 15 min for the shuttle to drive to the airport at 5:00 AM with no traffic so you better plan 30 mins during peak times. The steak sandwich was fantastic done to perfection and very tasty - more like a steak with a slice of bread on the side. Well worth the price! The bar has plenty of everything; Seats, TV’s, Staff, Food and a good selection of beer, wine and top shelf liquor. Will stay here again. April 28, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by One of the worst Beautiful lobby and hallways hide the terrible rooms, lack of amenities as dated run down guest rooms. As a priority platinum member I have stayed in many IHG properties across Canada and the US and this was awful. Dirty, dark, noisy room. No acknowledgement of my priority club status, sketchy internet, booked king room given a two double bed room. I would highly recommend AGAINST this property as it is completely substandard in terms of quality. April 13, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by room looks very nice on first glance, but...... We were put in a newly renovated room, which on first glance looked nice. However, it became clear to us quite quickly that the renovations were made with cheap material (for example, the brand new closet door was already broken and as a result made a lot of noise when opening and closing) and the actual hotel room door DID NOT lock from the inside. We ordered room service and the girl who answered the phone sounded like she had no idea about how room service worked and what was on the menu. In addition, we could hear the pipes running from other rooms for most of the night (although, we couldn't figure that out because the hotel seemed almost empty). On a positive note, the reception staff were very friendly and the bed was comfortable. Room on the 5th floor. April 3, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great place for R&R Friendly courteous staff and comfortable surroundings made our stay a wonderful experience April 2, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by state of rooms This was the second time, same hotel, I had to have the business chair replaced because it was broken. I also had to request a change of light bulbs as they were burned out. The room itself was ok. I washed off a stain from the wall that was a soda drink. I had to program the TV / remote so that they were in sync with one another and the features would work. At the end of my stay, the manager pointed out that I should stay on the first floor which was recently renovated. March 31, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Worst food at any Holiday Inn I've stayed at... This Holiday Inn has the worst food of any Holiday Inn I've stayed at. They did a great job upgrading the common areas during the last year, but now they need to upgrade the kitchen. I stayed back to back nights at this Hotel and at the Holiday Inn in Grand Prairie AB, the food at the Grand Prairie Hotel was some of the best I've had and the food at the Calgary Airport Holiday Inn is some of the worst... March 26, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great stay Great new look to the hotel. There were no issue encountered during my stay March 23, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 Lopsided Hard Upgraded King Bed I can't believe that they call this a Holiday Inn..the bed was literally lopsided and hard; like a very old mattress. I complained to the front desk they said they were full and thought I would be happy with the upgrade. Room service took an hour and the hotel is under construction. March 22, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Left Belongings go to the abyss never to return I Often stay at this Hotel chain on business travel and often at this location when I am travelling through Calgary, and have checked off excellent for most every item. However as travellers sometimes do I left a pile of receipts and important business notes in the desk drawer when I checked out 03/14/14. That afternoon realizing my mistake I called talking to the front desk let them know my issue, was told housekeeping was gone for the day but they would call me the next day. Never received a call. I phoned back today 03/20/14, and was dealt with promptly and in a professional manner. However everyone down to the housekeeper ensures me that there were no papers found?? There are many nice hotels to stay both for business and leisure, this hotel chain and definitely this location are off my list to stay and refer due to their neglect of their own policies relating to travellers belongings. March 20, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Good hotel, but lots of noise I stayed here for a couple days and the stay was decent. The only thing that bugged me was that there were a lot of noise due to renovations which I believe has been going on for a while. If you like the quiet during daytime, I suggest looking somewhere else. Otherwise, this is a fine hotel. Once the renovations are done, I would imagine that it'll look pretty nice and I'll probably come back then. March 16, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Pleasant Service Overall nice experience. Only issue is online reference to Holiday Inn (Airport). Gives the impression that it is in close proximity to Calgary airport. It is not. February 26, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Clean, comfortable and great airport transfer service with parking for more than 7 days. Very clean comfortable and pleasant staff. Stayed one night as we had an early a.m. flight and left car in their parking lot for more than seven days for no extra charge. February 22, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Service Inappropriate There was no indication on HI website the property was under-going a renovation; it was difficult to relax. Housekeeping was good though I do not understand why they throw away the used bar soaps every day during my stay. The finished rooms were beautiful and a large size. Restaurant service was good, though the lounge service was poor. Also the hotel phone in the temporary eating areas were disturbing. The staff spoke a foreign language that I understand. Quite the inappropriate behaviour as they talk about the guests/customers. Upon check-out it was reported. However, all they say is sorry as it's a popular known issue here. February 21, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Renovation nightmare Checked in for 3 nights. we landed on the floor with ongoing renos, dusty and noisy -night one night two, the front desk advised they were told to sell the rooms on the reno floor, they reluctantly moved us the new room was quite nice, however the toilet barely worked, called the front desk no one came, we finally fixed it ourselves night 3 same toilet issue no help came, called again still waiting in the end they gave us one night free, I expected the whole stay to be comped considering, even with the reno complete I would not recommend February 14, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nice Hotel Great place to stay. Restaurant is under construction at the moment, so if that is important, and it was to me, you better check if it's already open. Breakfast is set up in one of the meeting rooms and the choice is very limited for the price they charge. Other than that it is very pleasant and comfy place to stay. February 11, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Poor service and rude staff The room at the hotel was fine once we finally got into it. I called the airport shuttle service and was advised that it would be a 25 minute wait. When I called again after standing in the cold for 40 minutes I was advised it would be a 10 minute wait and they weren't sure what had happened. After a further 25 minutes standing in the cold and watching all the other hotel shuttles come and go at least three times our shuttle finally showed up with no apology. When we arrived at the hotel it appeared to be under construction and we had rude service at the front desk. He actually asked us why we had waited over an hour for their shuttle as if we should know why we were standing in the cold at 11 pm for over an hour waiting on them. There was no apology for whatever had happened and in compensation for the "mix up" we were given a complimentary drink at the bar for one person (which was already closed) which was further insulting to two people. Overall this hotel was extremely disappointing and rude, nobody wants to deal with bad service after an entire day of flying, getting in late and having cold weather. I would not recommend this hotel if you need a place to stay close to the airport, you will be lucky if you ever make it to the hotel if you depend on them! February 6, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Nice Renos, small rooms Stayed here recently and see they have done some nice renos in the front desk area although there was still a lot going on around the lounge and restaurant. Good location friendly helpful staff. Decent exercise room. Extremely small rooms though, I booked a king superior thinking there might be some room to move about, it is simply a standard room with a king bed making it very cramped. The bathroom is unbelievably small and hard to even turn around in. No way 2 people could stay in this room without bumping into each other all the time. Not sure I would stay again even though the rest of the hotel is nice. January 25, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Renos, renos, renos This was good for us because we were meeting up with family during a layover between flights. We wanted to do some shopping, so its location near Sunridge Mall was perfect for us (Just a $11 taxi ride.) And the breakfast buffet was also nice. But, it is undergoing a number of renos at the current time which makes it a little less than comfortable. Hallways are boarded up and hallways and rooms are dimly lit. ...Will be nice when it is all done! January 9, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Beautiful Jacuzzi Suite We stayed in one of your Jacuzzi Suites over New Years, and were very impressed with the room and the staff. The room was newly renovated and very clean, the bed was very comfortable, and the staff was incredibly helpful. The pet policy you have in place is wonderful, it was a real blessing to be able to have our two little dogs in the upgraded room with us. I would recommend putting wine and other drink glasses in the room seeing as there's such a beautiful wet bar. In saying that, the service staff at the restaurant were happy to give us some.
