Verified Reviews of Holiday Inn Express & Suites Downtown Calgary

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"A tired property in a bad location"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
There was a space beneath the door that let cold air into the room. The elevator failed twice in two days. A wake-up call came one hour late. A sewer-like smell permeated the lobby, halls and rooms one night. There's a bar next door that gets noisy at closing time. It's a downtown location but I wouldn't walk the area late at night.
