Best Western Plus Suites Downtown
Ranked #28 of 109 Hotels in Calgary
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 10 March 2012

The hotel is a bit further from the downtown core of than other downtown Calgary hotels, but it is a small price to pay for the spacious room with a mini kitchenette, free Wifi and free parking that you get. The room was very clean with a modern decore and the Wifi connection speed was really good compared to poorer Wifi connections I experienced in pricier hotels. The complimentary breakfast includes a good variety of choices, including hot items, and the staff were friendly and accomodating.

I have stayed at this hotel the first 3 weeks of January 2012 and the first and last week of February 2012. The staff was exceptional. Uzma in the breakfast room, greeted me and my co-workers every morning with a smile and a "Good Morning!" We missed her and the breakfast when we were not at the hotel. Say Hi to Uzma!
After staying at other more expensive hotels in the city, this hotel provides more for your dollar. The rooms are spacious, clean, and the kitchenettes are a plus. The suites are fantastic!!
During my last stay I had the pleasure of staying in one of the two bedroom suites. The beds are very comfortable, the suites are well equipped and it is like an apartment.
I was happy to find that not only is breakfast included in the stay, but the price also includes free wi-fi and parking.
The location is great too it is central to everything. It is only a short walk to the C-train, 17th ave, also known as the "Red Mile" and many other sites and restaurants.

This location also has laundry facilities, a fitness room and a sauna!!

The Manger of this location, whom I have had the pleasure to chat with, is great and truly cares about the guests having a wonderful stay at the Best Western Plus Suites Downtown.

I for one will stay again and will be encouraging my company to book me in to this location on future business trips to Calgary.

Our room was spacious with both a desk and sofa. The hotel facilities are very good and hotel staff helpful. Breakfast is more than adequate. For a central city hotel, this provided good value for money.

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor. We were on the 15th floor at the end of the corridor and it was very quiet.

It was really cold when we arrived, so Ric's Grill being 1/2 a block away made the location fantastic.

The hotel advertises Free breakfast - Free parking - Free Wifi. All were good. (Never stay in a hotel without free wifi.) Underground parking required that your vehicle is less than 6ft 1" tall. But you need to check-in first, to get a room key to open the garage. The parking lot at the back of the hotel is also free. Use it while you check in. The elevator also goes to the garage, so luggage carrying is easy. You need a key to access all floors except M (main).

The rooms were good, clean bathrooms, coffee maker, decent breakfast, comfortable beds.
There's nothing else you need in Calgary.

Thumbs up Best Western.

Stayed hear the first week of Jan/12 for the World Juniors Hockey tournament. The location is great as there's plenty of conveniences within walking distance.
Renovations started out of the blue on the second day, was NOT happy about that as it was very loud and no one was given any notice; lots of unhappy people!!
The rooms are average and looked like the had some updates, poor construction and low range materials (many fixtures were installed incorrectly or poorly)
