      The hotel looked after us very well with all the standards you'd expect from a Marriott - everything was done well.

      However, the best thing is probably the location - you're right in the middle of the downtown area, plus you're right behind the main cafe & shopping strip so everything is within walking distance.

      Historical Traveler Reviews Calgary Marriott Downtown Hotel

      Excellent service

      from

      I really would rate this a 4* hotel. Location that cannot be better, well-appointed room with all facilites you expected from a 4* business hotel. The pool is fairly large - fine for lapping rather than just dipping.

      I receive excellent service from this hotel, starting with the valet people who gladly move my car while I check-in, even though I made it clear from the start I'd be using self-park. Fast and excellent room service, with prices about the same as the main restaurant and no mandatory tip or extra charges. Front desk is efficient and courteous.

      Good hotel, great location

      from

      Stayed 3 nights in Feb 2005. Welcoming lobby. Spacious room. Huge picture window.

      The 24hr 3rd floor fitness room is packed with equipment. The pool/whirlpool/sauna next to it closes at 11pm.

      This Marriott hotel is across from the Calgary tower, and a block from the Hyatt and The Fairmont Palliser ... 2 other popular hotel choices. A Starbucks is on the far side of the lobby. There is a Milestones restaurant directly behind.

      Great centrally located hotel

      from

      We recently spent 5 nights at the Marriott and had a great stay. The only reason that I didn't rate this 5 stars was that in the room we were in on the 9th floor although very quiet you could hear water running intermitantly through the pipes in the wall. Whether this came from the rooms above us or next door is anyones guess.

      On the positives the room was lovely, quiet and climate controlled which was great. The lobby staff are helpful accept for one fellow who finds it difficult to smile!

      The starbucks is very handy in the hotel especially if you have early morning starts for trips into Banff etc.They open at 6am and serve slices and the usual from Starbucks which is great when you don't have time for breakfast!

      Brewsters tours and others stop out the front of the hotel and sometimes at the side which was very handy.

      Opposite this hotel is the main Calgary attraction the Calgary Tower located across the road. Shopping is just down the street with the strip full of shops. I would reccomend a restaurant called SALTLIK. We arrived in Calgary at 10.50pm and went into SALTLIK and although the kitchen closed at 11pm they still cooked us up a hot meal after a long journey! This place is very busy and the prices reasonable for a restaurant and they will do you a take away if you ask.

      There on the shopping strip is McDonaldsand a Chinese restaurant that is down a set of stairs so keep an eye out for this as you are waling down the main street as it is easy to miss but has great food at a great price.

      There is a large shopping mall just off the main shopping strip if you haven't had enough shopping there which has another set of food shops and clothing outlets etc.

      I would recommend this hotel to anyone and I would also recommend the Brewsters Mountain Lakes and Waterfalls tour from Calgary. Its an early start but a very scenic tour.

      Family Weekend

      from

      Our family stayed here on the weekend and had a ball! Excellent location downtown within walking distance of the Glenbow Museum, Stephens Ave., and the Calgary tower. Skip the breakfast in the hotel though- too many $$$.

      Would not honour expedia reservation

      from

      We booked two nights at the Calgary Marriott through expedia more than a month before our departure. It required a pre-payment for both nights--$500 including taxes. When we arrived at the hotel to check in we were told that they never received our reservation from expedia and they were fully booked for the second night but willing to allow us to stay for one night. The manager disavowed all responsibility and claimed that expedia caused them frequent problems with reservations. Expedia, in turn, said that they had a record of a fax sent to the hotel with the reservation. We did not stay and checked into another hotel--but the Marriott reported to expedia that we had stayed and expedia refused to refund our money! Multiple phone calls to the hotel and to expedia were needed to clear this up and the hotel staff were inconsistent in their claims about whether or not the reservation had been properly booked. Hotel staff were unhelpful and unwilling to take any responsibility. Be warned!

      Good for the price I paid.

      from

      I enjoyed my stay at the Marriott for the price I payed; I got a good deal with my CAA/AMA card. I loved the location and the Starbucks. My problem's were where my room was. I was on the 8th floor facing downtown....Friday night was alright, but Saturday night/Sunday morning all I could hear was music from a club nearby. I could actually hear the songs in my room, I knew what songs they were playing. I know most clubs close around 2am, but it seemed this one was open longer. So needless to say I didnt get much sleep. Then in the morning, I could hear housekeeping around 8:30am. Which didnt help much. I told the lady at the desk about the music, and she said they knew about it. But for a young person, on a budget, this was a nice treat to stay in.

      Nice Hotel

      from

      Nice hotel. although placing us near the gym area was not a great idea, noisy or what!!! If you get put near the gym demand another room. It would be nice if they enforced the gym hours as well so people could sleep!!!

      Nothing but praise for this hotel

      from

      Rooms clean & spacious, comfortable beds, staff are friendly, courteous and helpful and location is a plus. Will definatley consider this for our stay when visiting Calgary again.

      Fantastic Hotel

      from

      The staff goes out of their way to accomodate your every need. The young lady in the concierges room is with out a doubt the best at service on a very professional level.

      The best hotel in Calgary

      from

      This is by far our most favorite hotel in Calgary. The service is outstanding, and the staff is first class. Having a Stabucks in their lobby starts my day out right.

      ... fell, the hole meant that the pipes were exposed. The water in the pipes froze and then the pipe(s) burst. We woke up on Wednesday morning to no water. Thankfully everything was fixed by the evening and the ceiling is progressively being fixed - it has been -20 or lower for about 24 hours now and not further incident. So fingers crossed it remains this way.

      Well as we were sitting this close I thought I'd better say hello which was the beginning of a very very interesting chat virtually the whole length of the journey.

      ... Graturity is getting harder to understand, as some places you have to give minimum of 15% of the bill, and if really good service 20%. Many times we have had to use the phone to calculate, then round up. Much later we walked back through the city, where one of the streets is closed off for pedestrians only, a bit like Bourke street. Finally getting to the room we repacked all out bags to be under 23 kgs, as that is all we were allowed per bag on our flights ...
