This is quite possibly the best airport hotel I have ever experienced. While I am not sure that I would pick this hotel if I was interested in visiting Calgary more extensively, for someone who flew in from another continent and needed a place to crash before the flight back and right before the flight home, this place was brilliant.
The bathroom was the most amazing part - hence the attached pictures. Other great perks about the room included: free wifi, wonderful pillows, great bed, wonderful bedding, free DVDs that you can borrow and watch, hot tub on the top floor with a great set up, nice gym facilities. It's really hard to fault them. Then you factor in the free shuttle to/from the airport, and you've got a great recipe for success. My only quibble with the hotel is the shuttles only go twice an hour. But that's fairly minor.
I've seen a few comments on prices, and I wanted to add a bit of perspective on that. #1: If you travel during the Calgary Stampede or its 100th anniversary, any place in Calgary is going to gouge you, so you can't fault the hotel for that. #2: The hotel is willing to match the rates of its competitors. That enabled us to get a really good deal -- I first did my homework on what was possible near the airport and the hotel was able to match them on both of the days we were interested in (and we ended up with lower prices than was advertised on the internet for both days). Mind you, we booked several months in advance, but I'd encourage enterprising travelers to stay here and talk to the hotel. They are very welling to work with you -- and I don't regret our stay there in the slightest. To be honest, given the poor hotel we stayed at before, we were awaiting with relish our return to the Acclaim.
NB: The restaurant onsite is a bit tricky to go to - but they have decent food. Shame they don't do room service. We loved their breakfast, and I smelled someone else's pizza and was very impressed.
