Clean up to date and modern. Helpful staff. Minutes from downtown and easy ride to the airport. Great value!! However I’m certain the Travelocity ad showed “with breakfast”, but when we asked in the morning about it, we were told that our stay did not include breakfast??? Feel like either Travelocity scammed us or the Holiday Inn did???

Don't check in until the renovations are done

I've stayed in hotels undergoing renovations before but the conditions of the hotel have never been this bad before.

Good quality accommodations

Pros: Quiet
Cons: a little difficult to get into
This was our second visit to this hotel in the past 18 months and we would definitely stay there again. The location is good and quite convenient for getting around. The hotel was clean, the staff was friendly and the rooms were nice. Beds were comfortable and the hotel provides you with both soft and firm pillows. The hot tub and pool area were clean and inviting and it was nice to relax in the evening. The only down side is that it is a little difficult to get to the hotel from the Trans Canada Highway if you are coming in from the east (heading west) as you cannot make a left hand turn at that intersection.

We stayed here the first and last night of our vacation to Banff National Park. The beds were very comfortable. The staff was friendly and made a room change for us. Very easy to get to from the airport

Basic lodging not too far from airport or downtown

Location: About equidistant from airport and downtown. Found a nice Indian food restaurant west on Hwy 1 about 5-10 min away.
It's a Holiday Inn. Surprisingly, we had to ask for another room as ours had residual smell of smoking. Staff made the change after initially saying they were full. Second room had a grimy microwave - not usable, but room was ok. It was an ok place to stay before leaving the next day.

The staff at this hotel is outstanding

Pros: Quiet
I arrived late and left early the next morning. The staff was very welcoming and helpful. The room was as I would expect at a Holiday Inn. The airport shuttle service ran late into the evening and started early in the morning. That was exactly what I needed.

Most accomodating staff and great hotel extras

Pros: Free Internet, Quiet
At first I was a little worried, there seemed to have been a problem with my reservation, or I wasn't able to be checked in correctly. Turns out it was a computer problem behind the desk, and after that everything was absolutely perfect. Turned out my boss had booked me the wrong hotel, but the staff at the Calgary Airport Hotel hooked me up with the airport shuttle that took me to the Holiday Inn Express (near the airport) every morning for my meetings. Great restaurant, great bar (though limited tequila selection), and great gym. The internet in my room worked perfectly with my laptop and the speed was good enough for voice chat and video streaming. Over all was a great stay, only wish I had had more time there.
