Pros: Nice location, beautiful view, beds were comfy.
Cons: Hotel in general was really cold
Our room had a broken heater, which honestly didn't bother us that much, but when I went the next morning to ask if it could be fixed while we were out for the day the staff apologized profusely, upgraded us to a VIP room with free breakfast, and also brought a nice tray of fruit to our room. It was a really nice gesture and they definitely made us feel as if our comfort actually mattered to them. Overall it was a nice hotel and we slept really well. I would definitely stay there again.

Thank you for staying with us while you were visiting Calgary. When there is a home game for the Calgary Flames, we always have multiple people stay with us to see the game. I hope that you were able to take advantage of our $5 happy hour in the lounge prior to going to the game. The atmosphere in the lounge is always fun on game days as you see many people with their flames jerseys. Sincerely, Jason Clark, General Manager

Hotel staff went above and beyond; our flight was delayed and we arrived after midnight; they had left cookies and milk in our room with a nice note; everyone we dealt with was courteous and eager to make our stay a good time.

Thank you for your review. Our rooms have synthetic pillows on the bed and we have feather available upon request. We offer two types of pillows as some individuals like large fluffy pillows while others prefer more flat, firm pillows. On your next visit, please let us know what type you would prefer and we will bring the alternate selection to your room. Sincerely, Jason Clark, General Manager

convenient downtown location

4 out of 5
by from Edmonton AB
Posted Dec 19, 2016
Pros: The staff were beyond pleasant and helpful, and they seemed genuinely excited to have us in the hotel and to be of service. We were very impressed.
Cons: We would never use a coffee maker / cups located in the bathroom just feet away from the toilet.
Location: Convenient location in the heart of downtown. Parking was reasonable with in-out privileges. Walking distance to the core and Eau Claire market.
The staff at the Delta was absolutely exceptional and went above and beyond to remember us and make our stay great. The in-room dining was very helpful about accommodating allergy requests and there were plenty of gluten free options (all delicious). Try the flourless GF brownie - you will not regret it. The room was just adequate, but the staff and the food made up for it. We did not have time to check out the pool / hot tub but we appreciated that it was open until late (midnight).

Thank you for your review of the Delta Calgary Downtown. Thank you for your comments about our Brownie, we have several options for people who require gluten free meals and if you don’t see something that you like on the menu, our chefs are pleased to provide you with a custom menu. On your next visit I would also recommend that you visit the River Walk located just a short block from the hotel. Simply turn right and this trail takes to all the way to Inglewood.

Central location, friendly staff!

4 out of 5

Posted Dec 9, 2016
Pros: Staff
Cons: Breakfast, bathroom fixtures.
Location: Walk to river, downtown restaurants, cafes
Location is central and near transit, taxis, restaurants, cafes, etc. Check-in was a breeze: polite front desk and hotel staff. Room was clean, comfortable with good river views, but the place itself is dated, especially the bathroom. We had 2 good nights' sleep. Breakfast was the only major downside: no buffet, and the menu was very limited, and certainly not 4-star quality. That said, the restaurant staff were polite and attentive. Summary: stay here if you like downtown, but eat elsewhere. Bonus: the Starbucks in the lounge!

Thank you for staying at the Delta Calgary Downtown. Our bistro switched from a buffet to ala carte service and there are many different options available to our guests. I apologize that you did not find any items to your liking and we will take this into consideration when we change our menu items which happens every few months. I appreciate your feedback as it is guest comments, such as yours, which we use to determine what changes need to be done to improve. We look forward to serving you again in the future.
