      Historical Traveler Reviews Hampton Inn & Suites By Hilton Calgary- University Northwest

      Our night at the Hampton

      from

      We found the hotel to be quite clean with courteous staff.

      Rooms were quite nice.

      Kids enjoyed the pool and the breakfast was pretty good too.

      Underground parking garage fills up quickly and other parking is slim as there's so many other hotels right around it.

      Rooms are well insulated from neighbour noise.

      In general we enjoyed our stay.

      A fair value for $ spent.

      Great hotel

      from

      Great hotel, very clean, spacious rooms. We stayed in a 1 bedroom suite. Well insulated, nice and quiet. Highly recommended.

      Great hotel!

      from

      Beautiful clean hotel. Easy to access from the Trans Canada Highway #1. Nice rooms, large bathrooms. Comfortable mattresses with duvets and nice big soft pillows. Free high speed. Fun waterslide and the pool is actually warm! Hot tub is clean and hot. Breakfast is bountiful and really well laid out. Hot and cold cereals, toast, bagels, muffins, sausage and eggs,juices, coffee, yogurt, fruit salad and lots more. Coffee is always on and it's free, as well as hot chocolate 24/7. There's even breakfast in a bag to go if needed. Staff are friendly. Expensive candy shop available. Located close to McDonalds, Phils, Red lobster,etc. Underground locked parking--nice. Very safe hotel. Also has a nice excercise room available. There were many hotels right beside it in what is called "motel village" and we walked through them all to compare. There is no comparison! The Hampton far surpasses them all. Caters to alot of business people. Was very quiet.

      Great 4 stampede

      from

      In have stayed here twice now, once on my own, and last year with my 11 year old. I think the location is excellent for both the university and central Calgary - the C train stops just across the road and it is not far then into the centre. There are plenty of places to eat on the strip (Phils, the lobster shack) and the hotel is clean and friendly. The rooms are large and I had not problems with cups, just used the ones from the free coffee and tea in the breakfast area. Breakfasts are very good - generous, and would be a bit repititive over a long period. We were there just before and during the first part of Stampede!! That meant the prices took a huge risem but you can get the train to the stampede ground easily. The pool is great for kids especially the slide, but I could sit in the hot tub whilst he slid, so no complaints. I have always found the staff helpful at the desk and welcoming - some are less experienced than others of course, The breakfast staff are a great double act. There are several large malls within easy distance. Compared to the hotel next door, where I also stayed, well there is not a comparison. Stay here!

      Nice, Clean, Comfy beds and Great Breakfast but - Bring your own Mug!

      from

      I stayed at this hotel during a business trip and was completely happy with all the amenities, comfortable bed, cleanliness and staff. The breakfast in the morning was great - eggs, sausage, toast, FRESH fruit. The only complaint is that they have mircowaves in the room but no mugs or bowls to use in it. The staff said all dishes had been removed due to high rate of theft and guests should bring your own. So if you plan to cuddle up with a cup of tea in the evening, and want to make it in the microwave, make sure you bring your own mug!

      Recommended though compared to other Motel Village accomodations. Very close to train - quick trip into downtown.

      Beautiful hotel

      from

      This hotel has an atmosphere that says "welcome" as soon as you step through the door. The staff are friendly, helpful and very accommodating. The rooms are tastefully decorated and really beautiful. The decor of the whole hotel is one of comfort with the great looking rug and the beautiful fireplace in the lobby. All of this plus the wonderful continental breakfast which is nothing like I have ever seen before. There is a wide variety of breakfast food including their own brand of breakfast on a bun. I loved this place. Although it is a ways into the city, it is definitely worth the drive. ENJOY!!

      Awesome Hotel. Very Clean and Nice.

      from

      My Friend and I and his Brother stayed at this Hotel back in june for a Special Olympic Track meet and we Have to say we had a ball at this Hotel. When we went into the Lobby the Lobby was so nice and we were Greatted by very Nice hotel Staff and the Sponcers payed us for our Acomadation. Our room was very Clean and Beds were so Sung we slept well. Room was very Quit. Air Conditioning was Good. Not Very loud. Good water Pressure in the shower after our run. Downtown Is a tad far so you may have to take the Subway that runs all above ground. football stadium is not that far away if you want to see a football game or the Running track were we were. Swimming pool was very nice. Has a water slide for everyone so kids will enjoy it. My friend and I used it. Subway Station is very close to the Hotel. Just Ask them. They Have a free Brekfest in the Lobby area so Help yourself. Food was good. I said good Morning to a very Nice Lady who Looked after the free Breakfest. They have a good Boston Pizza Close to the Hotel. Yes I will be back to Calgary And I May stay at this hotel Again.

      Great motel

      from

      I stayed here for 5 nights as an IBM business traveller. I had a King Study room. Room was spacious and clean with a sofa, desk and free hi-speed internet. The included deluxe continental breakfast was the best continental breakfast I've had - not a full breakfast but the next best thing.

      They also always have free coffee and tea at the front desk.

      The motel is within close walking distance to the commuter train, which is only several minutes to downtown. But it's an uninspiring location - right in the motel strip with a few restaurants nearby and a medium-sized enclosed mall which you can also walk to or drive.

      The pool has a great water slide, kids would love it!

      The front desk staff were courteous, helpful and professional. No problems with that. I checked out a day early, efficiently and with the correct charge I booked online. So I think this has improved since the previous writer.

      I would stay here again. Less expensive than downtown, and because I was on a per-diem rate, I got to spend the saved money on extras for myself (like skiing!).

      This Hampton is better than the one at the Airport (I also stayed in it before).

      Hotel fine but front desk staff untrained

      from

      I have stayed at the hotel 4 times on business in the last 12 months. My latest (and final visit) was brutal. When I arrived there were three people ahead of me to check in. Each one took 10 minutes as the one clerk behind the desk was woefully unfamiliar with the computer.

      When it came my turn she asked me the same questions four times and each time lost the data that had been entered. Mercifully, she relented when I asked for a key and we would sort the rest later. Two hours later i returned to the front desk and she was still by herself but no crowd. When she finally got the info in, the rate came back higher than what was in my confirmation notice but she said that would be fixed when I checked out. When I checked I was informed ( by a different clerk) that from the time I booked to the time I arrived, our corporate rate had been changed and I would have to pay the higher rate. When I sad that that was unfair and probably illegal and I would like to invoke the "100% satisfied or free" guarantee, he chuckled and said it didn't apply for cases like this. After causing a scene he relented and checked me ouyt at the confirmation rate.

      These are the nicest people

      from

      I stayed at this Hampton Inn in August 2004. They treated me wonderfully. I ended up staying 5 days, because I had gotten sick while hiking in the mountains. These guys took me to the doctor, and looked out for me until I got better. The hotel is very clean. I can only give this hotel great praise. Once I was well they helped me find my way about town and see some of Calgary, too. Everyone was friendly from the top person on down. Thanks guys!

      We are now just under an hour from getting on our 3-hour flight to LA. And yes, just a little excited!

As you receive your red blood cells back with a plasma donation the level of iron in one's blood can be lower and you can undertake them on a more regular basis. The last two - three years in Canberra I was donating plasma once a fortnight. I enjoyed my routine, I enjoyed providing something that would help ill people and I enjoyed chatting with the nurses and receptionist ...

Obviously it would be very rude to be traipsing snow, sludge and mud indoors so people would remove their boots before coming in. What has struck me is that the indoor / outdoor divide continues at the gym, where there are many, many signs telling people "NO OUTDOOR SHOES BEYOND THIS POINT" and stock piles of shoes near entrances to rooms. Canadians have sports shoes which they only ...

Ugly buildings were torn down in favour of a more traditional approach; Frankfurt's old town is being rebuilt in a medieval style, while beautiful modern skyscrapers grace the skyline in the background.
