A well located, quality hotel...

Pros: The staff was friendly. Parking was good - open to the street but seemingly well monitored and secure. The breakfast was very good. Stong coffee :) Close to C-Train (free downtown)
Cons: We've stayed at a number of hotels downtown Calgary across a range of prices - this hotel was among the best (and more affordable).

Enjoyable. Next time we visit...

Pros: Great location. The room was spacious and very quiet. Staff was friendly. Bed was very comfortable, as well as the sofa.
Cons: There were very few channels we were able to watch on the tv. I think someone might have put parental controls on and never took them off, but not a big deal, we were not there to watch tv.
UserSeng

Very Poor
Bad

Pros: Absolutely a worse experience I had encountered.
Cons: The staff at the reception desk should be fired in order to protect the name of Holiday Inn IHG. He was rude. inefficient. Because of him, we ended up not staying in this hotel. We showed confirmation for three rooms but he insisted that only two rooms were reserved. We asked any possibility to have an extra room since we are a group of 8. Without even checking, he just told us right into our face NO WAY. After spending about 15 minutes to sort things out , we asked for the key for one of our rooms to see if all of us could squeeze in in two rooms but the key given to us twice could not open the room. I am sure you can understand our frustration and anger.

Perfect location, great hotel to...

Pros: The staff were lovely and they made us feel very welcome for our first nights stay in Canada from the UK. They allowed us to leave luggage securely whilst we explored the city the next morning and had everything we needed. Thank you. Also, the pancake maker was awesome! The staff also helped with dinner ideas.
Cons: Kettle in room (we Brits like our tea as much as our coffee). I didn’t mind going downstairs for hot water but a kettle in the room is always nice

Mixed review

Pros: Friendly and professional staff (particularly the male receptionist and female breakfast room attendant), comfortable beds and good breakfast.
Cons: Limited car parking spaces (and people sleeping rough in the car park), dated hotel in need of various upgrades and the room booking options (i.e. we paid extra money for a standard room as we wanted a room with two beds and ended up with a king room, however paid $20+ per night extra compared with the other people in our party that booked a king room)

The first Holiday Inn Express locations opened in the United States in 1991. By 1998, the brand created such an amazing campaign ad called “Stay Smart” which clicked and helped skyrocket the hotel’s success. Originally, the first few Holiday Inn Express properties were the no-frills type hotels. Newer Holiday Inn Express hotels now offer most of the amenities that its higher-end counterpart offers.

There are four hotels in the Holiday Inn family of brands. These include the Holiday Inn, Holiday Inn Express, Holiday Inn Resort, and Holiday Inn Club Vacations. The Holiday Inn Express is different from the other brands in its style. Typically, the hotels are built from corporate architectural stereotypes with each hotel consisting of 60 to 80 rooms and a mix of suites. The Express hotel chain has seen a huge success so much so that majority of the Holiday Inn Express hotels are either brand new or newly renovated. Holiday Inn Express hotels also differ in its location because the chain is typically positioned in suburbs and freeways.

A well located, quality hotel...

Pros: The staff was friendly. Parking was good - open to the street but seemingly well monitored and secure. The breakfast was very good. Stong coffee :) Close to C-Train (free downtown)
Cons: We've stayed at a number of hotels downtown Calgary across a range of prices - this hotel was among the best (and more affordable).

Enjoyable. Next time we visit...

Pros: Great location. The room was spacious and very quiet. Staff was friendly. Bed was very comfortable, as well as the sofa.
Cons: There were very few channels we were able to watch on the tv. I think someone might have put parental controls on and never took them off, but not a big deal, we were not there to watch tv.

Very Poor
Bad

Pros: Absolutely a worse experience I had encountered.
Cons: The staff at the reception desk should be fired in order to protect the name of Holiday Inn IHG. He was rude. inefficient. Because of him, we ended up not staying in this hotel. We showed confirmation for three rooms but he insisted that only two rooms were reserved. We asked any possibility to have an extra room since we are a group of 8. Without even checking, he just told us right into our face NO WAY. After spending about 15 minutes to sort things out , we asked for the key for one of our rooms to see if all of us could squeeze in in two rooms but the key given to us twice could not open the room. I am sure you can understand our frustration and anger.

Perfect location, great hotel to...

Pros: The staff were lovely and they made us feel very welcome for our first nights stay in Canada from the UK. They allowed us to leave luggage securely whilst we explored the city the next morning and had everything we needed. Thank you. Also, the pancake maker was awesome! The staff also helped with dinner ideas.
Cons: Kettle in room (we Brits like our tea as much as our coffee). I didn’t mind going downstairs for hot water but a kettle in the room is always nice

Ok

Pros: Nice rooms - modern and good in room toiletries

Mixed review

Pros: Friendly and professional staff (particularly the male receptionist and female breakfast room attendant), comfortable beds and good breakfast.
Cons: Limited car parking spaces (and people sleeping rough in the car park), dated hotel in need of various upgrades and the room booking options (i.e. we paid extra money for a standard room as we wanted a room with two beds and ended up with a king room, however paid $20+ per night extra compared with the other people in our party that booked a king room)
