"Premier? Don't think So..."

3
geejaysee, Vancouver 09/09/2020

Perfectly acceptable, but nothing more. Having stayed in truly "Premier" entries in the chain, this falls short. Must have earned this rating on simply size and scope of the property, a massive convention hotel in a somewhat sketchy warehouse section south of YYC. Staff tried hard but the hotel falls short of expectations.

Jeannie Godfrey, General Manager at The Best Western Premier Calgary Plaza Hotel & Conference Centre, responded to this review
We appreciate your comments and are sorry to hear you feel this way. I wish to assure you the hotel meets and exceeds all of Best Western requirements for Premier designation. The hotel is actually north east of the city centre, located centrally between Calgary International airport and the city centre. We are actually positioned between two shopping centres, walking distance to many restaurants and also offer quick and easy access to the Calgary Zoo, Telus Spark Science Centre and Trans Canada Highway.

Great visit to Calgary. Attempted fishing and a visit to the zoo. Such friendly staff at the BW; Made our Masked stay great. Fast and efficient check in/out. An exclusive visit to the pool and a yummy breakfast. Accommodated a second visit to the pool before our return home. Thank you.

Very very nice hotel! Our first night the room had no air conditioning so they moved us to another room. Would have been nice to have been offered a credit or something for the inconvenience of having to pack and move

amcgilvery2015, Rocky Mountain House, Canada 23/07/2020

I didn't intend to stay at first but just to check pricing and vacancy. The price was right and the room was well worth the money. The room was so inviting and the king size bed was so comfortable. The staff were very gentle and inviting--didn't look at you like you were out of place. The view was nice from the 10th floor and the lightning storm seen was from there was so beautiful! I'd recommend this hotel for anyone who is in the Calgary for a night to however long. I am in the future taking my family there to stay for a couple nights!

Rooms were comfortable and clean. Good value overall for attending a conference in Calgary. Location was not great and a car or uber service was required to get around. Pool area was disappointing as it was located in a basement.

kskrish, Edmonton, Canada 28/12/2019

You know when you want to have a holiday and do absolutely nothing except lounge in the pool and dine in and as my daughter says "chill" the Best Western Premier Calgary Plaza Hotel & Conference Centre is the place to go. And we did just that - the beds were so comfortable and the room was so clean that we didn't feel like going out - truly a home away from home without the dish washing ! The housekeeping associates that we met in the hallway were quite friendly. And the Front desk associates both at check in and check out were professional and friendly. The hotel also has large conference spaces attached and a huge parking lot which I presume would be for large events. The pool and the hot tub are recently renovated and great place for kids to splash around. I would certainly recommend this hotel to anyone wishing to stay close to downtown with shopping and restaurants nearby

Stayed here as part of a wedding weekend. The room was comfortable and clean. The beds were very comfy and the linen was nice. Queen beds in tower B and King in tower A. Nice pool and hot tub. They have a little gift store with snacks for purchase if you get the munchies. The restaurant is good- breakfast buffet is about $13. Close to a small mall and a couple of fast food restaurants. Great staff and was a wonderful wedding venue—great wedding rates for staying. They do charge the destination marketing fee but the wifi in the room is fabulous.

This hotel may not look like much from the outside, but it has been recently renovated (the Lounge included). Very modern look, clean and comfortable guest rooms.

User 26/11/2019

For years lounge was great, but now no VLT and no big screen tv on all the time. The ambience is gone. Great hotel otherwise. For years we would come to Calgary and entertain family and friends in Barrington lounge, play on the VLT and drink, eat and have lots of fun. But with the new renovations no more VLT so we get our room grab a taxi and go to the casino up the street and drop $$$ there.☹️

Pool and hot tub was perfect and again, very very clean. I am a bit of a germaphobe and was so impressed with the cleanliness. Security driving in the parking lot.

"Nice room but loud in-room heating and ventilation system make for poor sleep"

FlashRuby, Edmonton 01/11/2019

It's a lovely hotel, recently renovated, and very elegant. However, though the rooms are beautifully furnished with excellent amenities, the constant high-pitched whine from the ventilation system ruins sleep, and detracts from the overall experience. Even with earplugs I could hear the loud whine of the system, made worse by constant ticking noises in the wall as the pipes heated and cooled. As sleep is absolutely key, I would likely not return to this hotel as I did not sleep well at all. It's a shame, really, because all the other amenities and services are top-notch.

User 19/10/2019

This hotel is very nice. Quality fitout, neat, clean and tidy with everything you need onsite. Except a laundromat. Think it might be marketed towards conferences because there is not much happening near by. The city centre is about 15 minutes by car and that was on the weekend. It's surrounded by car yards and industrial complexes. There is a shopping centre within walking distance, but our impression of it was not that flash. Very close to the airport. Maybe 15 minutes by car. Overall we felt comfortable and safe while we were at the hotel.

The Calgary Zoo and Telus Spark Science Centre are also within a 10 minute drive of the hotel. We hope to have the opportunity to accommodate you once again in the very near future.

Stayed mid October 2019 for two nights. I travel for business frequently and this was my first time at this hotel. This hotel offered everything I would expect from a top rated Best Western. A little older than some I have stayed at but the comfort level was on par with the best I have stayed at. Dined in the Horizons restaurant both nights and both food and service were good.

The room was nice and clean. The buffet breakfast was abundant and there was a very good selection including hot omelettes. The front office manager was great, friendly and courteous. We were able to use the computer. There was a time that we waited for the shuttle bus but it never came and the front staff told us to take a taxi and the staff paid for the taxi. This is what I call excellent service. We always stay in a Best Western Hotel anywhere in the world to make sure that we get the benefits of being a rewards member AND we also get the best sleeping accommodations.

The hotel was clean and well kept both inside and out. All of the staff we interacted with, from desk to breakfast to housekeeping were friendly and professional. The breakfast was hot and delicious! Even with a conference being held there and the airport so close by, it was quiet day and night there-wonderful for these two weary travelers. Breakfast is not included with all room purchases, so check ahead if you want a complimentary breakfast, check ahead or else it will cost $13/person for breakfast. They do have a 24 hour restaurant and room service, which is nice.

Chadthetraveler1979, Edmonton, Canada 26/09/2019

Because I live over one 3rd of my annual days in a hotel, I tend to book at upper-class hotels with great reputations and amenities. Of late, I've noticed that in many locations Best Western has but up some higher-end looking hotels that feel as good if not better than my usual haunts. This hotel is definitely one of them and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

We were in Calgary for a business meeting at this hotel. We have stayed at this hotel several times previously for meetings. Lots of nice upgrades have been done. We were in a very nice renovated room. We purchased one breakfast voucher. Breakfast was a hot buffet, very good. One breakfast was included at the meeting. Hotel is in a good location. Certainly recommend this hotel.

Access to the city transit is a block away. Calgary has the best transit system for any large city and its right off the TCH, so visitors can park and play right from this hotel. The COBB salad is so good, I had it 2 evenings in a row. However the price point is a little unreasonable and could use a 25-30% reduction.

I was very pleased with the room size, bed was very comfortable, shower was excellent, coffee great and the most important to me was how clean it was. The only thing not too great was the work out room was small if you wanted to do weights and another person there then not much room also needs fans or air circulation as was too hot and humid.....sucked it up cause I really needed a run on treadmill and skipped the weights.

BWP Calgary Plaza and Conference Centre - the best place to stay in Calgary. We are seniors and we will stay again in this hotel. The service of Jen, the duty manager, exceeded our expectations. Boni the cok served as a most delicious, healthy, veggie omelette. Hiya, the waitress gave us excellent table service. The Cagary Zoo package was excellent in contents and in price. We give this hotel an A+ rating.

The food quality was also exceptional. All the staff who were present and served us during breakfast and other meals understood our needs and provided excellent service. We would definitely stay there again and would highly recommend to friends and family.

User 27/08/2019

Had to travel to Calgary for a family emergency. First room was so dirty with hair on both beds we had to ask to move. They front desk attendant was nice and happily transferred us to a next room which was cleaner. There was always uneaten remnants in room service trays in the hallways during the stay, some there over 12 hours. Parking lot is half filled with dealership cars and if there is an event at the hotel, it is very hard to find parking. I was offered the option for quick check out, which I signed for, but was not provided. I did the survey after, had someone contact me for feedback, I sent pics and details but no response. Hotel is convenient, good Reno's, but needs some better housekeeping.

Room 519 in the tower. $136 Canadian including xtra fees/taxes. PROS: Large, well appointed room with luxury linens and amenities. Seattle Best coffee in room, ample parking at rear of building. No breakfast included. Onsite restaurant good but pricey. Bar/lounge area under renovation. Pool has dressing area. CONS: pool, while nice, is FAR away and up stairs to access. The front desk personnel, "Alicia" came across aloof and unhelpful. Be aware that this is a large convention oriented type hotel. Families may need to go elsewhere for dining.

Stayed here with two young children and took them to Calaway Park with the package provided by the hotel. Snacks delivered to our room while we were out for dinner. Kids loved it. Pool had no slide like in pictures online which was a bit disappointing. Overall good hotel for kids and mom and dad too.

"Extremely Disappointing for a Best Western"

1
User 22/08/2019

I will not be staying at this hotel again. Does not meet best western standards in any way in my opinion. I have always opted for best western hotels when travelling but severely disappointed here. One facecloth for 3 people for 2 days (when we asked housekeeping in the hallway, were told they couldn't give us more but then the front desk said housekeeping would have to be called to bring some to us). No acknowledgement as a rewards member. No working air conditioning on 30+ degree days(apparently an issue with that whole side of the building). No mention of included breakfast so we had to pack up and drive to find and pay for breakfast each day. Were told they did not have a calaway park package when we specifically asked while booking but turns out they did. The maze to the pool through the basement is a little uncomfortable and then requires stairs to even get to the pool level. This was fine for me but I ran into someone in a wheelchair who had a much harder time. Staff were not accommodating or friendly when anything was discussed with them. And the best "resolutions" were a mobile air conditioning unit which leaked water all over the floor and an offer for a few bonus points. No discount or refund or apology. I would not recommend this hotel or stay again.

Room was clean except the bathtub could of used a better clean.Staff was friendly and the pool is great. Highly recommend.

"Another stay in the books"

C72EDMM, Edmonton, Canada 06/08/2019

We stay at this hotel every summer we come to Calgary, although this is our first time since it became a Best Western. Out of all of the years we have stayed, this is probably the best one yet. Which makes me feel better about bringing two other couples with us this time, whom also had rooms here and enjoyed themselves. Not every year has been so seamless. Our check in went well and the front desk clerk was friendly. It tends to be a very busy hotel and this was no exception, with there being a lineup. But they were quick and courteous. The hotel felt cleaner this time around (granted last time we were there it was under renovations). We stayed in tower A this year. Our room was nice, a king size Superior room. The bed was extremely comfortable. Our only complaint was that the Friday night we arrived, we went to the grocery store and purchased a bunch of food to keep in our fridge as we had very full days planned and were going to eat close to home. Well, this is actually the second year in a row that the fridge froze everything and spoiled all of the food we purchased. A bit disappointing and not something we will attempt again. Otherwise, the room was nice. I was a big fan of the shower. I know most people love having a bathtub but it was actually a nice change to have just one big shower in the room. This was also the first year we ate anything from the restaurant other than their breakfast buffet (had no choice once our food spoiled). The food, aside from the buffet was great. The breakfast buffet needs a bit of an upgrade. It is a bit boring. Normally I can eat the same thing a few days in a row, but there wasn't much on the buffet I could actually have. So I didn't have much to eat; thankfully, we had breakfast vouchers and weren't paying for it. But overall, the food itself is always tasty and the service is good. Parking has never been an issue here, and we feel very secure with leaving our vehicle in their lot. There is always ample parking available. The location of this hotel is very ideal. Close to a lot of amenities, the airport, and not so far from downtown that it isn't an easy drive to get to. Knowing the price of most downtown Calgary hotels, I'd much rather stay in this area. Next year, we potentially discussed trying out somewhere new, but being creatures of habit, and knowing we like it here, we will be back. Maybe this time we will bring the dogs again and test out their pet friendly amenities. Overall, I do recommend the Best Western Premier. Aside from a glitch here and there, there is nothing big enough that would deter me from coming back.

"Great location and friendly staff"

Julaine12, Edmonton, Canada 06/08/2019

I enjoyed our room and felt it very spacious. The shower setup was one of the nicest I have seen in a hotel - it did not make a mess all over the floor like most. Our door to our room was very tight as was the bathroom door. So that was annoying as both were very loud to close. Only one elevator was working to my tower and that was eventually fixed during my stay. However, it was annoying to wait for the elevator for the first few days.

"Terrible Check In and Charged For Room Even When Booked With Points"

Matthew d, Morinville 05/08/2019

We had a bad experience right from check in. We booked this hotel one months in advance using our Gold Member points. Upon arrival, we confirmed at the front desk we were using our points to cover the two night stay. We recieved our Express checkout invoice showing we had been charged for both nights. At the front desk we were told we didn't have the points, even when it was confirmed at time of booking directly through the hotel. Staff said we had enough to cover one night, but still charged us for both nights. We will never stay at this hotel again. Terrible customer service!

Second aircon broken we reported it no one come a look to fix it my son end up nose bleeding in the morning because of the heat.

The hot water kettle and coffee maker was a great way to start/end the day. Everything about or experience here was perfect.

As a rule, I am generally not happy when I am booked in a Best Western as I prefers bit more luxury. Our conference was in this hotel so I figured I could deal with it for convenience sake. Boy. Was I surprised but I like it! A lot! Start with the best people located at the front desk. Awesome! Buy the breakfast coupons from the front desk. Good value! Great staff in the dining area. The room was spacious enough and comfortable. We liked having the small fridge and microwave in the room. They also had a safe. Problem with our safe on our arrival, but once we placed a call. It was fixed immediately. We were quite pleased. They also have an airport shuttle. Lastly, we enjoyed the onsite bar as well. All in all, we were very pleased with our 5 day stay.

The room was dated but renovated.There was a constant noise like a drill or a motor that would stat every minute and we could not sleep the whole night.The next day was ruined.The hotel upon complain tried to bribe us with free breakfast coupons which we returned and did not use. The cleanliness was not there.Dishes were left in corridor from 9 in the night till 11 in the morning till the time we checked out.

KiKiG154914, Edmonton, Canada 22/05/2019

We stay at this hotel everytime we stay in Calgary. This was our first time staying since it changed to a Best Western. They still have the same prices and deals which I was happy about. We always book a package when we go and this tine was the Zoo package which is an incredible deal and I highly reccomend! The upgrades done in the lobby look great and the pool being redone is a huge plus. Its is much cleaner now as it was pretty gross our last visit. With the package we booked it came with a snack basket and a free in room movie. I ended up having to call about the snack basket which was then delivered in about an hour. (Past visits it had always been in our room on arrival). Then at checkout I didn't notice that we had been billed for the in room movie we watched that should have been included. It wasnt until we were half way home that I realized, so a cheque had to be sent to refund our money for that. (The cheque did arrive promptly). Other then these little mishaps everything was great. The beds are super comfortable here and we love the warm buffet breakfast included in the package as well and we will continue to use this hotel for our trips to Calgary every year.

"Nice Hotel for Beer & Business"

Did the title catch your eye?! I stayed at the Best Western Premier recently for a conference. The hotel is in a good location close to the airport. The rooms are recently updated, clean and quiet. The staff do their utmost to help you in any way - much appreciated in this day and age! The butter chicken pizza served in the lounge is delicious with a light and fluffy crust. Now for the title...the hotel is in a great location with three craft breweries just up the road - Red Bison, Toolshed, and Common Crown. So, you could go there for business, or leisure, then go for a good beer.

The front desk staff were absolutely amazing and helpful. My husband caught a salmon in BC and we required a freezer for it during our stay. Everyone was understanding and helpful in getting our request accomplished! Thank you!

"A Flood with a touch of being stuck in the elevator"

BRCruiser, Canada 13/05/2019

The staff were very friendly however, I can't imagine how no one had reported the fact that the shower was leaking from the ceiling and flooded the bathroom prior to our stay. I am sure it must have happened before us. They changed our room however we could not go to it as it was occupied and had to rely on the staff to move our belongings which was ok. Had we not had to change rooms, we would not have been stuck in the elevator to get to the new room at 11 pm.for 45 minutes. We had to use our cell phone to call the front desk to tell them we were stuck. They had to send for the elevator company to come and get us out. The company had to be called and once they got to the hotel, it took another 15 minutes to get us out.. Both rooms we were in were supposed to be "Executive" rooms but after staying at many hotels, these were just ordinary rooms in my opinion. That second room had a toilet that could have done just about anything if you could figure out how to use it. That was more of a hindrance than anything else. On the positive side and the only one, the breakfast was a great buffet and the food was excellent. We were not offered any compensation for any of our issues.

We are loyal Best Western customers. We travel a lot through the US and Canada every year. Always staying at a Best Western when available. This was our favorite stay at any of the Best western's we have stayed at. Including the pricier, fancier Best western's in San Francisco. We were in Calgary as i was having surgery. The staff couldn't have been more friendly and accommodating. They were wonderful. The hotel was clean and modern, The have the awesome pillow top beds, lot's of parking and the breakfast was excellent. The staff was also fantastic and friendly in the restaurant. A great price point for a wonderful stay. This will be our go to hotel when in Calgary. Only sorry we didn't find it sooner being as we are in Calgary so often! We highly recommend it! Excellent!

We were in town for a karate tournament. This location was so ideal for both the event and all the surrounding amenities. The staff were friendly and very help and kind when we had to switch the rooms/reservations that we had with my mom's as she could not make it as soon as she was hoping. We even got a delicious brownie on check-in. The room was clean, spacious and comfortable. Awesome pool and hot tub. The only thing is we didn't eat onsite as they were a bit pricey. We will be staying here for next year's tournament.

pandam0nium6, New Westminster, Canada 22/04/2019

We were in town to visit the kids and grandkids. We stayed here because close to where they live and my son works there. The room was more than what we expected, we were upgraded to a king suite. The kingsize bed was quite possibly the most comfortable bed I have ever slet in. The breakfast buffet was far beyond anything I had expected. I highly recommend a stay here. Airport shuttle to and from.

I stayed at this hotel for the first time just recently and it was a wonderful experience. The rooms was very clean and large. The bathroom was small but met my needs all the same. It was close to the LRT station and a number of restaurants were withing walking distance. The hotel has a restaurant in it but I never used it myself but it looked very nice; albeit a little pricey for my taste based on the menu I saw. Overall, I quite enjoyed my stay there and would do so again.

"Very Good - But Hotel Management gets to decide Who gets Free Breakfast and Who has to Pay!!"

4
ACDSee, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada 09/04/2019

Nice and clean overall. Simple and not extravagant. Access to Hotel location is through the industrial area, so though its not too far from the main road, its still a short drive away, and a fair walking distance to the shopping mall and restaurants in the neighborhood. The lack of complimentary breakfast for all customers was a downgrade to the rating ($10/per person), as the hotel appeared to be quite selective as to who gets free breakfast and who had to pay, almost as if it depended on where/who the customer used to reserve their hotel room, or else depending on how much they paid for their hotel room. Some customers had free breakfast vouchers, while others had to pay. Knock on the Hotel Management for this bad discriminatory practice. Also the Restaurant that served the Breakfast stated that customer couldn't take their food up to their hotel suite, but yet they made an exception for others. The Quality and Consistency of service for customers is a bit of a concern at this hotel. Hotels that don't discriminate customers are those with better hotel management practices, and this Best Western Premier needs a little wake up call. Otherwise the hotel stay and room, was good to very good.

Matt_Gavora, Director of Operations at The Best Western Premier Calgary Plaza Hotel & Conference Centre, responded to this review
Hello Thank you for taking the time to submit a review and rating, we appreciate hearing about your experience. I apologize that you were left with the impression that we are discriminatory towards our guests and I want to assure you this is not the case at all. While we do charge for breakfast, we offer rates and group packages that include this charge for our clients convenience. Thus it is the clients choice to make use of the offering. We also allow guests to take meals to or in their room as we offer both takeout and in room dining, though we do not allow take out for buffet. I will follow up and ensure we are more transparent with our guests so there is no confusion in the future and I thank you for bringing it to my attention.

Hotel staff: From the front desk personnel to restaurant staff/chefs to housekeeping and maintenance staff nothing but outstanding service. All staff are extremely professional, polite, informative and western down to earth. What ever mgt has in the water: do not change. Restaurant: Outstanding breakfast selection, quality and superb staff. Our dinners again were very professionally presented and the quality superb.

We stayed at this hotel as part of a very large group. They were able to accommodate us with a group breakfast and store our luggage. The rooms were very clean and quiet. The pool area and change rooms were very clean as well. The only downside was the very small hot tub! If you are not with a group you have the option of buying a voucher for a buffet breakfast. It is well worth the money! There were lots of parking spots with plugins for the cold nights! The rooms were basic but well appointed. The microwave and fridge and little extras like free bottled water and a variety of hot drink options were appreciated. We will definitely stay here again as it was great value for the money.

A huge Special Olympics Group and I Stayed at this hotel this weekend and it was lots of fun. Rooms on tower B from the 8 to 12 floors have a awesome view of Downtown Calgary. I was Super Impressed with the huge facelift or renovation they did the old way when this was the Coast hotel in the past was Very Ugly and dark inside I think the Walls were brown and lighting was very dark when I was just for the Special Olympics banquet and dance 12 years ago. After facelift a huge improvement and brighter and cleaner I'm sure this Hotel was closed a few months. I was very happy with my room and very clean and free bottled water and Coffee in room. Shower worked very well. Only thing is it's a little far from Downtown but the LRT takes you right to Downtown in a few minutes. I've been on it. Marlborough station is not too far. I didn't have the time to use the pool but I hope I would have enjoyed it.

"No Complaints!"

Prairietraveller01, Calgary, Canada 05/02/2019

Over the last several weeks, I have stayed at this property twice in two different room types. Both rooms were modern spacious and clean. The property has been recently upgraded with all of the amenities that you would expect in a full-service hotel. The staff throughout the property were professional and courteous! The breakfast buffet was better than most. I did like the option upon check-in of purchasing the Breakfast Buffet at a discount for the mornings that fit into my schedule. The location is OK, I would not call it central but it has good access to the major routes. Expect to drive to any destinations, it is definitely not a walkable neighborhood. There is some decent shopping near by and lots of Restaurant options, which can be hit or miss. The Front Desk should be able to steer you in the right direction. I am not a big fan of the Environmental Levy but I am sure that they are not the only property charging this fee. Obviously, the environment is important but in my opinion, this is just an excuse to force an additional fee upon the consumer. If the environment is so important, why did one room provide ceramic coffee cups and glasses and the second room had plastic glasses and disposable cups? Go figure! The only annoyance that I experienced was booking through the in-house on-site reservation agents. On both occasions I was quoted a rate higher than the posted rate on the Best Western website. The first agent acknowledged this lower rate and honoured it immediately. On the second booking the lower rate was not honoured until I provided proof of the lower rate. To be clear I had to provide a screen shot of the rate posted on the Best Western website to the Agent that is employed by the Best Western Premier Calgary Plaza Hotel. Give me a break! All this aside, I have enjoyed my stays and if I have a need to be in this quadrant of Calgary again, I would stay here. I would not have a problem recommending this property.

Foz2B, Alberta, Canada 05/01/2019

Was unable to book the Whirlpool Suite room at the BW Premier Freeport Inn Calgary Airport location so decided to give this hotel a try and book one of their Jacuzzi Suites. Was surprised at how spacious the entire suite is … large sitting area with dining table and 'kitchenette', the separate bedroom with a comfortable king bed. The nice touches includes a small bench just inside the entrance where you could sit and remove your footwear, the surprising festive animal towels on the bed welcoming us, a wardrobe closet in the bedroom. We were just floored however when we walked into the 'luxurious' bathroom … with a large modern jetted tub, large rain shower style shower and a … Japanese style toilet! The water is a bit slow in warming up … the jacuzzi tub drain is a bit fiddly to operate Overall though, this is our new number one hotel in Calgary.

BenLar137, Calgary, Canada 30/11/2018

We have stayed at many Best Westerns over the years, and this new Best Western in Calgary is the largest, by far the most luxurious, and the most friendly we ever stayed at. This Best Western truly IS a premier property. From the shuttle driver / doorman who offered his assistance on our arrival, to the extremely friendly front desk staff, and every other staff we came across, everybody greeted us with a genuine smile and hello. And it seems every customer would receive that. We stayed in a spacious one-bedroom jacuzzi suite - small kitchenette, dining area, and a huge, lux bathroom with dual sinks. Our bed was oh-so comfortable! Their rooms are well-appointed, and well thought out. We loved their large indoor pool with hot tub. Even the change rooms at the pool were upscale. From a grand piano in the lobby to high-end decor, we love this hotel, and we'll be back!

When I stay at Best Westerns, I generally know what to expect: not to be wowed and not to be royally pissed off. This was exactly one of those stays. Mishap: Based on the organization of my stay, the organizers were supposed to account for payment of room and taxes. As I was checking in, they advised I would be paying for my room which is incorrect, so there was a miscommunication on this part. Rectification: Front Desk called me within an hour after I checked in to advise the payment was taken care of. But it's not the best surprise to be told you have to pay when you're not supposed to. Breakfast: standard hotel buffet - I loved the hashbrowns, stir fried with green & red peppers and red onions. Room: Bed was super comfortable. Renovated washroom was really well done!

I stayed two nights at this hotel for a work conference. I enjoyed my stay. The hotel was clean, the rooms were large, and they offered a great price per night. The conference was catered by the hotel and the food was absolutely delicious, the staff was amazing as well.

Recent acquisition for the Best Western chain. Extremely clean rooms with recent upgrades. Friendly helpful staff. Loads of outdoor parking with plugins for winter. Convenient location as long as you have a car.

Stayed here for two nights. On the upside, the room was nice and big, the wifi was reliable, and the food quality & value for money for the breakfast and lunch buffets were good. However, there were numerous issues which suggested the management should tighten up training and supervision of staff. For example: I left a breakfast order card hanging from my doorknob before going to bed one night; the following morning it had not been picked up. My check-in process was disorganised and my credit card imprint did not get taken which caused problems for ordering a room service dinner; I didn't get any apology for the inconvenience this caused. As well, staff allow people to butt in for check-in rather that prioritising people who are already standing in line. My hotel room key stopped working midway through my second day, and when I went to find out why, I was told accusingly it was because I should have already checked out, despite the fact that I was booked to stay for the following evening; again, no apology. Dinner in the restaurant had issues with service and timeliness. Two other issues - the hotel gym is cramped and extremely hot; a couple of floor fans to move around the air might make things more comfortable. As well, the left-hand treadmill randomly stopped or slowed down while I was trying to run on it. Lastly, recent rebranding is incomplete and the external signage still brands the hotel as a Coast Plaza which is very confusing.

Thank you for sharing your comments on your recent stay. It is great to hear that you enjoyed the room and food and beverage in Horizons Bistro. The issues you encountered are an exception to the service and standards we are known for and pride ourselves on. We are in the process of change and the signage fell behind schedule due to the unexpected weather we experienced this month. The departments involved have been addressed with the issues you encountered and we will work diligently to ensure these types of incidents do not reoccur. Thank you once again for sharing your comments and allowing us the opportunity to respond and correct our issues.

"International Event - Coast made it Awesome"

We held an international sporting event with competitors from 11 different countries across North America, South America and the Caribbean. The Coast was our host hotel and banquet facility and did a superb job. They were accommodating, helpful and helped solve issues that came up. Huge kudo's the the Front Desk Team, without their stellar service, the event would not have been successful. So successful that the local committee has an open invite to host future events from the international selection committee. THANK YOU Coast Plaza

The hotel itself has been upgraded and the rooms are very comfortable. Food was average compared to excellent in previous years. The room had 2 chairs in it which I like so you don;t have to sit on the beds.

Staff are friendly and accomodating. Hotel is clean and rooms are comfortable. I mistakeninglyonly booked for one night when I needed two nights. The hotel had two conferences going on simutaneously so all the rooms were booked. The staff on different shifts were in touch with each other to book me a room as soon as there was a cancellation. They were able to accomodate me. I was so thankful.
