The location and the amenities were great. The room was perfect for the three of us. Even though it was very dated. The room could have been cleaner, mostly there was dust on most of the ledges etc. The breakfast fell alittle short. I have stayed in a lot of BW hotels and this breakfast did not measure up. Would... More

Staff is friendly and helpful. Room is spacious with everything a traveler needs. The suite has pots and pans for cooking too. Room rate includes breakfast and free parking. Downtown location closes to everything. Convenient store, supermarket and coffee shop are next door.

This was our final night stay, of a 2 week Calgary to Vancouver round trip vacation, with many overnight stays in between. This hotel was definitely one of our favorites, and we were disappointed that we only had the one evening to enjoy it. The room was clean, the beds were comfortable, and the service was excellent. The only minor... More

The hotel has a good location with free parking that is very unusual at downtown. We had a room with a full equipped kitchen. From the hotel it possibly to walk 300 meters to the free transportation to the city center. Good location, helpful staff and convenient price
