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.

I took my granddaughters and daughter to the Cavalier for a 2 day break. We all had a great time. We went to Carver's for dinner and all the staff were attentive to our needs. They made my granddaughters feel special, stopped to talk to them, asked them directly what they wanted. We are planning another stay in February. Thank you Sheraton Cavalier, you made our getaway fantastic.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SPGL2 Long time visitor to this hotel
I have stayed at this hotel on business trips for many years and admire it for the constant upkeep and renovations. It maintains a high level of maintenance and appearance both in its public areas and guest rooms. The quality of staff and training is also evident. One thing, regardless of your Starwood Membership standing it is difficult to obtain a room upgrade at this hotel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sandi46 Another great stay
The hotel lobby is comfortably luxurious with well appointed rooms.
The room was over sized with soft bedding and very comfomfortable beds.
The restaurant was bright and had a good selection of breakfast (the only meal I ate on site) items at a good price point.
The bathroom was compact with up to date fixtures. I loved the large walk in shower, rather than a tub combo!

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 5 out of 5 by Jerry61 Club Lounge wine.
The wines listed are shown as 1/2 litres but what you get is a 375 ml bottles. This is not right. I brought this to the attention of the Lounge staff and they were going to advise management. I mention it here so that it is documented as we only stayed one night I was not able to follow it up.
Other wise our stay was very nice and enjoyable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ZaphodGold Another great stay at the Cavalier
There was a time when I was staying at this hotel monthly when travelling down from Edmonton. This is the first time in nearly 3 years that I've stayed here, and it is still a great property.
While I didn't get onto the spg floor (7th), I was upgraded to a suite which was quite nice. Beside the elevators, but there was no noise at all. A very comfortable room.

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 bobalink Unsatisfactory stay
Probably the worst room experience in years. Furniture badly worn, chairs that literally could not be sat in, rust in the water, badly worn bathroom taps and a bed with mattress well past its best due date.

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!

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!

Rated 4 out of 5 by mg727 very good family hotel
Location is convenient for access to and from the airport and the rest of the downtown area (LRT is close by), the facilities are great especially the water park for the kids (and adults), and the Bistro is very accommodating by way of food choice and price for family dining.

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 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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by RATX Club Lounge is very small
The club lounge is very small and at Happy Hour they do not offer any complimentary beer and wine which happens at most other Sheraton's. Additionally, the prices for the wine at Happy Hour is similar to the bar downstairs..might as well just go there for more options.

Another great stay at this SPG property in a very comvenient location.
The Club Lounge has a great view. The snack variety is great, and staff there is really friendly and helpful.
Had a greay breakfast at Colour Cafe, and the wait staff there was awesome!

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.

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.

I took my granddaughters again for a 2 night stay. We had a great time. We seem to be seeing neighbours and friends coming for the weekends too. All of our needs were met. Hats off to the kids that work in the pool area. These kids make sure everything runs smooth and is taken care of.

Rated 4 out of 5 by RP27 Great Hotel, Unfriedly staff at the bar
Great hotel to stay at. Rooms were large and very clean. Check in staff were very friendly and knowledgeable.
On the negative side, the staff at the bar were unfriendly and didn't make anyone feel welcomed. They wouldn't even give us the food for the price advertised as the "special".

We had a fantastic stay at this hotel. All of the staff were friendly and helpful. We loved the pool. Our kids could not wait to get back on the watersides when we woke up in the morning. We will definitely stay here again on our next trip to calgary.

The water park was a hit with my grand children, ages 1 & 3. We arrived at around 8pm and went straight to the water park. They were exhausted after and went straight to sleep. We all had a wonderful experience.
The hotel was hard to find with our GPS due to road construction.

Felt very welcome here, thanks to the Manager who happened to walk by when we checked in. We upgraded to Club and will do so from now on, loved it! We always use different hotels when we visit Calgary, but the Sheraton Cavalier will be our first choice from now on!

Rated 4 out of 5 by brucehp enjoyed my stay but bathroom smelled of smokers
Nice hotel, convenient to the airport, plenty of restaurants near by. Only negative was that a previous occupant had definitely been smoking in the bathroom of this room. Not a really strong smell, but not what you want to face first thing every morning.
