This hotel was truly amazing. I stayed for 1 night and attended a conference within the hotel. From the shuttle, to the staff, to the check in procedure, to the rooms, to Henry's Pub and the service our group received in this pub, to the food and service in Colors, to the conference room and the catering during the conference... everything was top shelf! I would definitely rebook here and definitely recommend this hotel to others. If you don't stay here, you are missing out on an experience that will definitely set a new standard of excellence in the hotel industry. Great Job Sheraton!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by RNCMG Grungy rooms not clean!
We updated to a suite from a standard room which we were told was upgraded. It was old and dingy, the sheets on the pullout couch my kids slept on had a tag stating that they were cleaned but there was hair all over the sheets. The bathroom was not very clean, it had something sprayed all over the door and floor, it looked like pop. The pool was great, kids enjoyed the waterslides however you need a key to get in the elevator and we got stuck with no key and had to wait for someone to come to get back to our floor. Would probably stay again if they started cleaning rooms a bit better.

Rated 1 out of 5 by AKfamily5 No Sound Proofing in this hotel
We have stayed at the Sheraton before as the beds are very comfortable and my kids enjoy the waterslides. Our last stay was in room 234 right by the pool access and I would not do it again. Usually you can hear muffled voices and sounds outside your door or from the room beside you which is quite normal but this time it was like all these noisy people were inside our room. We actually checked to make sure our hotel room door was closed. There is no sound barrier at all in these hotel room doors, unfortunately we had terrible sleeps and for that reason would not recommend to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LeGaul67 Excellent stay!
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Welltravelled26 Highly recommended
We stayed for one night only and found the whole visit to be flawless. The hotel is in pristine condition, staff service was exemplary, the rooms spacious and beds were very comfy and while we did not have breakfast as part of our package, the restaurant off the foyer was very reasonable and had a great choice of food. There was also a starbucks in the lobby area. The hotel is about 10 mins drive from Calgary airport. We didn't get a chance to use the pool unfortunately. This visit was far far superior to our Sheraton stay in Toronto 4 nights earlier. I can't fault anything.

Rated 5 out of 5 by duckymac Excellent All Round Luxury
This was the first time in using this hotel and I must say it did not disappoint. From the moment we walked into our room we felt like we had walked into luxury. It was a beautiful modern feeling room but for the price of a standard room that you would expect to pay for in another hotel. I can't pick out any faults with the room or hotel. We loved the waterpark and it filled in our evening just nicely. The staff were beyond professional and courteous, I find that them going out of their own way just to provide the smallest thing or make the guest that little bit happier really seals the deal. I will definitely be staying again and we are already planning our next trip. Give yourselves a big pat on the back guys.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cheapspeed Enjoyable Repeat Stay
Stayed over the weekend with family and appreciate the suite upgrade. As always, staff was helpful and friendly. Hotel is at a reasonably good location with free parking. To go downtown, go south on Barlow Trail to Memorial and by-pass traffic on Deerfoot. Newly renovated fitness centre is under-utilized, I was there alone for more than an hour on Sun evening. Henry's Pub has daily steak and pint special for $18. All in all, I feel right at home in Cavalier on my frequent business and personal visits to Cgy. Breakfasts during this stay at the club lounge are very good.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Gret Some suggestions for the water park
I am concerned regarding the safety of children in the pool area.
Please consider an attendant at the top or bottom of the slide and to enforce the "no diving" suggestions written on the edge of the pool.
As well the attendant could monitor the overcrowding in the hot tubs.
Persons folding the towels do not appear to have any ability to perform these safety duties.

We travelled to Calgary for a team tournament and found the hotel very efficient, comfortable and accommodating. They kept our whole team together with our rooms which was a bonus. Pool was enjoyed by all the kids. Would have been nice to have a fridge in our room (not bar fridge) to keep our extra food, drinks for the tournament

We have stayed here before and will come again...our daughter loves the pool...we had a minor issue this time with what appeared to be blood on the hide a bed mattress, and when I informed the front desk about it nothing was done about...I informed them again when I checked out so hopefully something was done about it afterwards...the rooms in general are very nice and the beds very comfortable...the service in the lounge was good and the people who worked throughout the hotel were very friendly...we were there for the long weekend and it was extremely busy.

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

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jo60 Great Place to Stay
We spent three days here last week, and really enjoyed our stay. The room was clean, very comfortable, and had everything we needed.
We ate at Carver's the first night ......... was wonderful! They have the best cheesecake ever! A couple of other times we ordered room service and were very impressed by the speed of arrival, and the quality of the food. Very yummy and great portions.
We went in the pools one night, and had a very nice time. It's a great place to bring your kids for sure!
We would highly recommmend this hotel to anyone, and we will be back.

Rated 3 out of 5 by jats78 Nicely renovated
Enjoyed the newly renovated room and Club Lounge. The clerk at front desk was very curt. Checked on internet in lobby regarding upgrade and noticed 3 available suites. When we asked for the upgrade, we were told we already received an upgrade to the Club Floor and were told that there were no suites available. I called Starwood and was told that the suites were available. Is that the way to treat your Platinum members? Even though the Club Lounge opens at 7:30am thre was no hot water available for tea till 8am and the boiled eggs arrived later than that.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Smurfette This time was for the Dogs!
We try to use the Sheraton Cavalier for a winter family getaway once or twice a year. The renovations have made the rooms even better (awesome showers), with the pull-out couch and king bed there is more than enough room for our family of 5 to be extremely comfortable. The colours restaurant's pasta buffet and quality of the kids menu items is unmatched. And the staff is generally top notch.
Despite having a fantastic time as usual there were a couple of annoyances. On our second night there were DOGS barking a few doors down from 8pm- midnight. After mentioning it to staff it seems nothing was done. We had the worst night sleep there ever, plus our two year old was woke up as well. We understand that dogs are family too, but let them stay at a motel or lower quality hotel. We didn't book a motel or inn for a reason. It was terrible and we were very disappointed not more was done.
Also the speed of the elevators are fantastic but the need for a key card for access was very annoying as well. We were wondering why this change was done, but no one seemed to have an answer. Were there security issues in the past?
Despite the annoyances, we will still go back. Just hopefully with no dogs to bunk down the hall from....

Rated 1 out of 5 by Gordupnorth Disappointing Customer Service & Food
Check In - After a long day of travel, I checked into the hotel late Sunday evening, expecting a Club Level room as advertised and proven on my reservation confirmation; I had been excited about this reservation as I was not away of any Club Level and after learning about the additional services, was looking forward to it. However, the front desk clerk informed me that my reservation was for a King room, not club level and I was in no mood to argue, though I did mention and show him the reservation inform stated Club Level. Discouraged, I went to my room to rest, already starting my stay in a poor mood.
Lobby - The lobby is nicely decorated, a very large open space with lots of seating in the lounge area. The one issue was that access to the elevators from the lobby was narrow and seemed to a gathering area for groups of people, including children carrying over sized hockey bags.. This made it very awkward to pass by them to get to the elevators.
Room - The room was nice, lots of space and a good view of the mountains and downtown Calgary skyline. The windows were in tremendous need of cleaning, the outside of them was very dirty, causing no picture of the mountains to actually turn out. Best yet however was a imprint of a child's hand on the window, likely after handling something sticky. I noticed the hand-print on day two of the stay and it was still there when I left 5 days later - completely neglected by cleaning staff. The bed was comfortable, but the pillows were far too soft. I asked the front desk on two occasions (once by phone and once in person) for harder foam pillows, but they never arrived.
Amenities - The pool was below average. While the facilities were large, they are in need of deep cleaning and repair. The sauna has so many loose boards, you need to be very careful where you step. There is a cafe in the pool area which is very nice, a great incentive for families to stay longer. There were two hot tubs, one however was sectioned off; the other was fine, warming than what I expected; and even though there was a sign not allowing children under 10 in the hot tub, there was a 4 year old with her mother, while 2 staff looked on and did nothing to enforce the rule. I was not able to relax in the pool area at all, it is certainly catered towards families experience and not relaxation.
Restaurant - The breakfast restaurant, Colors, was a big disappointment. I tried it on two occasions, once for the Eggs Benedict which I did not enjoy, the eggs were over cooked, potatoes undercooked, and the Hollandaise sauce was made from a powder, not from scratch. I tried it again a few days later for their buffet but was disgusted by the grease level in every warm item they served. I opted for fresh fruit from the local market instead of breakfasts at this location. I did not try Carvers, their steakhouse onsite, after hearing
Room Service - I managed to get a couple orders of room service in during study periods of my stay. I would say that the deserts were fantastic, and the entrees are not worth the money. I have attached pictures of the orders. Their Chocolate Mousse Torte was great, rich and light; baked apple pie was good; the chicken breast was small and over cooked; the bruschetta was overcooked and hard, the tomatoe topping was heavily salted for some ready, but the roasted garlic was a great touch.

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.

While I was on business, my husband (who had recently had an accident) was not. I was given an early check in so he didn't have to hang around the lobby waiting for me to get back from an appointment and an extended check-out time a couple of days later so he could enjoy the first round of the Masters in our room while waiting for me to finish for the day. It was really good to have him close at hand in case of a problem and also to know that he could be comfortable and private. Many thanks to the Sheraton Cavalier for accommodating our special needs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by GRP1921 Nice Renovations
I have stayed at this hotel many times before, but it had been a little while since my last stay. The renovations conducted since my last stay were starting to be needed and aside from rejuvenating things they have added some very nice upgrades - glass shower and pull-out couch.
My TV was not working properly so I called the front desk and fairly quickly maintenance arrived. Unfortunately it took two replacement TV's to get things rectified - no fault of maintenance though. Beyond that, things were one again enjoyable - I was given a room on the 7th floor that looked towards the mountains - beautiful to go to bed to and to wake up to.
While on business this time, I will be back with the family so we can enjoy the Hotel's waterslides!

Rated 2 out of 5 by billyxe Carvers staff borderline rude
Myself and 4 colleagues , all Starwood Platinum members dined at Carvers during our stay. Hostess very unfriendly, looked down her nose at us for not having a reservation. The restaurant was 1/3 full the entire evening. 1 colleague was late and the hostess kept threatening to take away one of our tables if our colleague didn't arrive soon(we had a table for 2 added to a table for4). There were 10 empty tables for 2 the entire evening! She didn't need our table, she just wanted to be rude.
Not the 1st time this type of attitude was displayed by the same employee. Some training in politeness and appropriate way to treat loyal customers is definitely in order. Been staying at this hotel for years and the rest of the staff is always so helpful and friendly.

The hotel is ok but I drank a bottle of water out of the room and paid cash for it but I got billed anyway. I called and they assured me it would be removed. it has not been removed so I called again and was assured it would be removed. It has been a week and the charge is still there. For some reason I seem to be failing at this, I am calling them again to attempt to get this fee that I have paid removed from my bill. I had bad luck getting to the airport with all the construction, nearly missed my flight. I will not stay there again

Rated 4 out of 5 by Shannon32 Disappointment with Carver's
I was eating by myself and wanted a couple glasses of wine during dinner and then was going to have one back in my room. As a result is waslooking at the bottles. I was disappointed to find that there was not one bottle under $40. What was even disappointing was what you were charging for the bottles.
There was Wine O' Clock from Oliver, BC. I have purchsed it before in the liquor store for less than $10 a bottle. Carver's price was $45. I understand there is a mark up. Usually I experience a double mark up. To mark up the wine 4.5 times is ridiculous. This was very frustrating and now it makes me think twice about returning. I still bought a bottle of wine with my meal and so my bill came to over $100 plus tip. I was at the mercy of Carver's wine menu.

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.
