Rated 4 out of 5 by Boris78 Good beds and nice rooms, food not great and noisy
The King sized bed and the room was comfortable. The staff was accommodating and professional. We deliberately requested to be on the 5th floor so we would be removed from the Waterpark (2nd floor rooms) as we read in previous reviews that the noise from the kids in the pool and the chlorine smell would make staying on the 2nd floor unpleasant. However, on Sunday morning, it didn't matter that we were on the 5th floor-from 8:30am on there was constant noise out in the hallway. We got no more sleep. Beginning with vaccuming outside our door??? and then children running up and down the hallway screaming and thumping and out of control.Either the soundproofing underneath the room doors needs to be improved or something needs to be done to separate guests without children from the parents with- that let their children run amok and beserk. Also a mention about the food-we ordered room service our first nite there, and the food was awful. The chicken wings tasted like plastic dipped in sauces and the prawn, scallop bacon thing- really? We thought ordering seafood in Alberta may be challenging but we were surprised that the bacon (Alta known for beef and bacon) was awful. Other than that, the coffees we got from the coffee shop started our days great-convenient and good coffee.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RefiningRuss Great experience
I have been the presenter at a number of classes at this location. During the most recent visit I found all staff exceptionally courteous and friendly, and the catering group very attentive to all my needs. The food provided was exceptional. A job well done by all members of the hotel staff. I could certainly recommend this hotel as a site for your meetings.

Rated 3 out of 5 by GRP1921 Some What Let Down
I have stayed here several times for business and have always been treated well and enjoyed my stays. This past weekend I attended with my family for pleasure for 1 night. We had 2 adjoining rooms on the third floor. Unfortunately the rooms we received were directly over the rooftop air conditioning / ventilation units - absolutely no view. As a gold member I would have hoped for an upgrade, but given that the hotel was very busy I fully understand that this may not have been possible. However, I'm pretty sure we could have been placed in other non-preferred rooms that had some sort of view. I advised that I may need a late check out and was advised that the best I could get was an extra hour. I had to advise that I was a gold member and could have until 4pm if necessary. Neither of the above are show stoppers but based on previous stays I was disappointed. I'll still stay here but I will hope for a return to past experiences.

Rated 4 out of 5 by jazz08 They like dogs
Once again we stayed at the Sheraton Cavalier on the last night of our three day trip home. We were welcomed warmly by the staff and check-in was a breeze.
Our room was clean, the beds were comfortable and we along with our two dogs felt very much at home. We all had a restful time and a good nights sleep
Best of all, they have a Starbucks in the lobby

Rated 1 out of 5 by vb31 romance package??? really??
arrived at the hotel after having booked romance package, which included late checkout if available, I had to ask, them prompt the front desk clerk to look at our reservation, which would include a late checkout til 4pm if the hotel was available. I was able to have a checkout til 3. I asked if the sparkling wine and chocolates were in the room, blank stare...they were sent up, but merlot not sparkling and only half a bottle. Dinner in the lounge, steaks tasted like they were boiled...odd Breakfast was included in romance package, we asked desk in the morning when we came down where the breakfast was, we were directed, a nasty breakfast to the tune of 35.00 which we had to fight about because our breakfast was to have been included They eventually went to the front desk to check and the lady came with breakfast vouchers which had not been given to us at checkin. No apology, appears they didn't much care...the room was fine..the romance package a joke...what a shame

I travel very much in my job all over the world and every time I come to Calgary, my first choice of hotel is the Sheraton Cavalier hotel, and I have stayed at pretty much all of the high end hotels in Calgary.
The staff takes care of all of my needs and leaves me alone which I like and the resturants and pubs are friendly with good food at a good cost.

Rated 4 out of 5 by PDM5 Great beds - some changes needed
I really like this hotel for its location, parking and rooms. What does bug me is this is the only SPG property that requires you to sign a club lounge voucher and provide a tip to the club server. I have been to alot of SPG properties, and only here do they do this. Lighting in the bedrooms could be brighter for reading. Otherwise, a decent property.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gouletset Best hotel ever
I booked this hotel online and when we got theyre it exceeded my expectations!! Beautiful rooms and bathrooms the waterpark was great for my kids- the pools coulda been a little cleaner but understandable with all the people coming and going. I needed towels and it was brought up within 5 mins! Great place and I have been recommending it to everyone!

This was my second stay at this hotel and both times I have found it to be quiet, comfortable and possessing all the amenities I desire. The kids have a great time, the food is good I love the breakfast smorgasbord and the menu in the restaurant.

Rated 3 out of 5 by James2007 Disappointed
We were very excited to spend a night at the Cavalier. We have been there before. I usually check hotel rooms once I arrive in the
room and this time was no different. There was what looked to be blood marks on our bed cover, I called Guest services right away and whoever I spoke with didn't seem overly concerned. I called again and someone eventually came up to look at our bed cover and had a new cover brought in. What bothered me was that I don't believe the top bed cover had been changed from the previous guest. Also, after going into the washroom, as I was opening the door I noticed something brown in colour smeared on the door below the handle. I had already contacted guest services once and didn't want to doing again, so I used one of my Clorox wipes from camping to clean the door.
I am not sure we will visit again :(( I am really disappointed with the cleanliness of our room and the lack of sense of urgency in having the issue dealt with.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JamesZ A Good Experience
Overall, a good experience. Nothing spectacular, but quality stay.
I did not try the restaurant, but the lobby bar staff was very attentive and efficient.
I was surprised that the hotel was quite so far away from the airport. And, with the construction that is currently going on the morning shuttle rides can take quite some time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Lizzy58 Thumbs Up!
Our stay at the Sheraton Cavalier was great! The room was comfortable and clean and had everything we needed. Of particular note were the staff - whether it was the server in Colors, or the young man cleaning the elevator, or the woman cleaning our room, or the desk staff - all very friendly and helpful. I will stay there again!

When I arrived, I was upgraded to a suite at no additional charge. The lounge has a good variety of breakfast foods and Henry's Pub is a great place to eat - 20 wings for $5.00 on Wednesdays! Overall a great hotel. Always enjoy staying here while in Calgary on business.

I have been staying at the Cavalier in Calgary for many years. i was in a real bind this time and Gary was able to get me a room when no onw else could. He went above and beyond with phone calls etc to set this up for me. From a platinum member it is much appreciatd.

Rated 4 out of 5 by GRP1921 Good Business Hotel
I spent two nights here at the end of October. The hotel is easy to get to in the NE part of the City. Close to the airport and with several restaurants nearby it is a good location, especially if you don't need to be right Downtown. Also, if you have a family, the two waterslides in the pool are great for the kids.

The kids loved the waterlides, great environment. Clean and friendly. The buffets at the restaurant were top notch, my picky kids actually ate. Will stay here next time in Calgary.

Rated 2 out of 5 by kirbowla Disappointing
As a platinum member, I have stayed at this hotel many times over the years. Unfortunately, as staff change so can service levels. I was particularly frustrated during my stay at this property last week because the staff would not listen to what I was telling them I needed. I was in town for my Grandmothers 99th birthday celebration and my two sons were joining me. I asked for a room with a king bed and a pull-out sofa. As I said this the staff heard 'suite.' I repeated the sleeping configuration that I required. What did the staff do? They put me in a suite with a single King bed and no pull out sofa. I had to call down for a cot. The staff immediately informed me that I would be charged an additional $15. Customer service is negatively affected when the staff jump ahead of what they assume the customer is asking for instead of actually listening to what the customer is requesting. I have been very loyal to this property and I really felt let down by the hotel this time around.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Val13 Will definitely stay again
We got an amazing deal on this hotel. Because we stayed on a long weekend we got our 3rd night free! The staff are awesome and were always happy to do anything to make our stay special. And everywhere we went they would go out of their way to put a smile on our 2 year old daughters face. We got complimentary breakfast and evening horderves with our stay and both were always fantastic. I was expecting a little more from the pool area. I thought it would be bigger with a few more things for our 2 year old to play with, and it was always super busy when we went. But we went every night of our stay and still had a blast. We were able to take our daughter down the slides which she LOVED! There was always a line up for the slides but we never waited very long. The location of the hotel was great as well. We were close to everything we had planned to do like the zoo and the spark center. All in all we loved our stay and will definitely staying again the next time we are in Calgary :)

Rated 3 out of 5 by PrairieGirl42 Disappointing response; no upgrade
I had requested an upgrade to a club room. Somehow the request was lost or not forwarded to the hotel. When I asked if i was on the club floor, I was told 'Yes" then discovered that this was incorrect. I was told by mgmt that "I was just a Preferred Member" and no action was required. Very disappointing.

My room was very comfortable. I was expecting more from its main restaurant. Food options close down at 11pm, so if you have a late arrival you should look to eat somewhere else. As a gold SPG member, I was not offered an enhanced option for my room at check-in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TheNotoriousTLC A comfortable stay for a family of six (& two dogs)
My wife and I have always been very impressed with the hotel and how everything has exceeded our expectations, so we decided to escape Edmonton for a night and bring the entire family with us for a day at the Zoo and a relaxing evening by the pool followed up by a movie.
At first, I was a little worried that a family of six and two dogs wouldn't fit into a hotel room comfortably. Imagine my surprise when we opened the door to the Executive Suite.
Not only was it large enough to fit all of us COMFORTABLY, it was in a great location (across from the pool, next to the elevator and ice machine). Oddly enough, the room was super quiet despite the location - we didn't hear a peep from people coming off of the elevator, nor did we hear anyone coming out of the pool.
In the morning, because the Club Lounge was closed, we were able to use a breakfast voucher in lieu. Excellent service, great food.
All in all, this hotel never ceases to amaze. My family and I will definitely be returning in the future.

Room was quite warm even after resetting temperature on thermostat. Very nice room, but lots of noise in room from noisy street intersections.
Given all the medians and one ways, it is a bit of a pain to get into parking lot from the street.
