Rated 2 out of 5 by DonLP Nice Place but overpriced
Room construction quality is sub-par. Poor design of shower entry ledge causes bathroom to flood. Door jams are made of particle board that swells when exposed to water from shower. Restaurant prices are very high for buffet breakfast of poor to mediocre quality.

Rated 4 out of 5 by PascalClara Excellent hotel option at best location
The hotel is perfectly located, for both business (downtown) and for leisure (between Prince's Island park / river front and the vibrant 8 Ave SW. The room was very comfortable and clean, not has big as for our previous stay (at that time we were upgraded in in a larger room with larger bathroom, even including a TV screen in the bathroom mirror !).
We found all the staff very profesional and polite.
The hotel is connected with Starbuck and The Keg restaurant, plus the best Japanese restaurant in town (The Ki).

Since lobby was renovated it is so open an noisey so check-in staff have to be able to communicate so they can be heard

Rated 5 out of 5 by Snyderm86 Another great stay
As usual, my stay was great. The people at front desk and essence restaurant treated me as a special guest. I look forward to my stay next week as well.

Two very big negatives during my recent stay, otherwise a perfectly acceptable hotel:
1. The front desk mistakenly checked me into a currently occupied room. Upon arriving to my room, both myself and the man lying in "my" bed at the time were extremely unpleasantly surprised to see one another. My compensation was one free breakfast from the hotel. Hopefully the other guy got more.
2. Upon arrival (and even the next day after housekeeping had cleaned), there were multiple cups full of half-smoked cigars and ash on my "non-smoking" balcony. Apparently housekeeping only cleans part of the rooms, which unfortunately does not include the balconies.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jimtraveller A great stay
Positives: great front desk staff with check-in and check-out processes.
Got Business package upgrade, with free NA telephone package.
Also got free in-room movie certificates from the hotel manager.
What needs some improvement: buffet breakfast was not in service in the morning, and yet no one in the restaurant's wait staff offered any explanations. Their buffet is way better than their menu, in terms of price and value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MelX Enjoyable stay
We stayed in Westin Calgary overnight since our flight was very early in the morning. The rooms are comfortable, clean and well equiped with necessities. The staff was very friendly and helpful. There are few restaurants in the hotel and then more if you go for a walk into downtown. It is well situated in downtown but close to the airport. So if you need to stay in Clagary, this hotel is quite good and has good rates as well.
