Rated 5 out of 5 by Caren49 We really enjoyed our stay and will stay again.
What a great hotel. The reception staff were excellant upon arrival, the room was modern and the bed comfortable. My only wish would be for a bath instead of a shower. The pool area was great and we were in town for a wedding and were able to connect with relatives there. One night we came in late and there was no parking outside. The night manager was excellant and assisted in getting parking underground and helping us in. We requested a room in the back and it was quiet. Really great service!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Sng88 Insects in our rooms?
Overall, the hotel is nice. The staff are nice. Our only issue is that there were beetles in our rooms. Housekeeping came in the morning to check the beds and change our sheets. Although I understand that bugs are everywhere...this was gross.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MJHIL Good Experience
Second time staying at Aloft Calgary and really enjoyed our time there. Great decor and large, modern rooms. Only change I would suggest is add $5-10 on all rooms and give complimentary breakfast. Refuel is just too confusing as you watch people wander around trying to figure out what is complimentary, what is paid, and what is paid for on top of what is already paid for.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Marcus It's an Aloft so manage your expectations
Once you've stayed in one Aloft, you've stayed in them all. They are not full service hotels (no room service, restaurants or large suites, for example) so don't go expecting a luxury experience. They are stylish, minimalist but very functional hotels that are comfortable.
If you're a Starwood member, then the Aloft Calgary University is a perfect hotel if you have business at the university or nearby hospitals and want to collect points. The hotel is located within 2-3 minute drive to the university and is by far the best hotel (in quality) relative to the numerous other choices nearby.
The bed (and bedding) is excellent- similar to what you would find at a Westin or W. The bathroom toiletries is (like the hotel) sparse but functional. It would be nice if the cleaning staff replenished the bar of soap everyday since I like to have a bar of soap for the basin and the shower.
So, if you're a business traveller with business nearby this property is perfect for you. If you are a tourist, I would suggest other starwood properties in the city.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Kona55 Good looking place but noisy
The hotel looks great and has a friendly vibe however the soundproofing is not adequate. My first floor room was noisy all night. I could hear night staff talking and pool balls clacking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by eddifish Very comfortable room
We just stayed in another hotel in Banff without air conditioning the night before. It was so nice to see a room with good air con when the outside temperature is 28 degree. The room was very clean and very comfortable. The staffs are very friendly and very helpful.
