Dragging from several days of wedding-related sleep deprivation, plus a long flight and time change, we stumbled through the door of the hotel to a series of pleasant surprises. The friendly, Western-clad desk staff greeted us right away, and we had key cards in hand in a matter of moments. The common areas of the hotel were clean and in good repair, and the country lodge decor of rich plaids and warm wood was delightful. We found our room to be clean and already cool upon our arrival – a welcome treat after the 92°F summer day outside. The room was well-appointed with tasteful décor, plenty of lighting, large television, coffeemaker, and a larger-than-usual bathroom for a moderate hotel. It far exceeded our expectations for the price, especially during Stampede.
The next morning, I went downstairs expecting to bring a bagel and a cup of orange juice back from the breakfast buffet. What I found made me go back upstairs and wake my husband! There were bagels, doughnuts, fruits, cereals, gigantic specialty muffins, toast, juices, milk, coffee, and a waffle station! Despite the crowd of hungry "stampeders" filling the room, all of the selections were constantly restocked in ample supply by a nice lady with a smile. The only thing in short supply seemed to be the seating. We shared our table with a father and daughter from Toronto who were also in town for the Stampede. The man said that he had been told about this hotel by a buddy of his who was often in Calgary for business. He agreed with his friend that it is definitely the best value in lodging. We agreed too!
