Stayed here with a Cosmos Tour Group, very comfy, warm, nice view of the Bow River from our balcony. Close to town, walking trail by the river. Staff attentive and obliging when we asked for extra coffee, for the coffee maker in our room. Came with a fridge as well. However no Ironing board, but, I didn't need it, I'm on holiday
