Noisy elevators all night long, very slow.

Cons: Noisy, slow small noisy elevators, parkade not accessible with luggage
If you are a light sleeper like I am, avoid this hotel. The elevators are very loud all night long. You can't avoid them as the hotel rooms all hear them. The noise from the next door room was also awful. You can hear someone goint to the bathroom! They need a facelift especially the hot tub area. The elevators were so slow and tiny. The parkade is unaccessible for luggage, you have to carry up stairs. Some positives about hotel are space and views on balconies.

A beautiful hotel

Pros: Free Internet, Quiet
I've never stayed at a hotel that was beyond the 2-star rating, so when I had a chance to stay at the International Hotel Suites Calgary, I took it. I only stayed for two nights, but would have loved to be able to stay longer if I could have! The staff were kind and friendly. The management was helpful and apologetic when a minor mix-up with a room charge occurred (and it was immediately corrected). My only issue with it was that I found the smell of the detergent used for the bedding was way too strong for me. I'm sensitive to smells, so this bothered me a lot.

Great Value

Pros: Close restaurants, located downtown
Great value for your money. Well located in downtown Calgary it is easy to get too from Deer Foot Trail and has good safe parking facilities. Though access from the main desk to the parkade is a bit convoluted, once you have it figured it out, it works great. Our suite had a great city view from its balcony and a large space to settle in for a social or business meeting. Clean and quiet, we were there during Sled Island Music Festival and though it had lots of bands staying there I never heard of any partying noises late at night. I look forward to staying there again.

It was noises due to construction. But it was convenient for meals around the vicinity for walking distances.

Property under renovation, no breakfast, cannot use kitchen, dusty. Although my booking indicates that breakfast is included in the price but the hotel staff refused to provide a discount to compensate for the breakfast or a voucher to have breakfast somewhere else. I stayed in this hotel for two nights with no other chose. Philip Tong
