I spent the week in Calgary and had an opportunity to stay at the Four Points Sheraton Calgary West. Let me just say I had the oddest and strangely coolest room I’ve had in a while.
When I checked in I was thanked for my loyalty, I appreciate that. Spending almost 100 nights a year away from home, it’s nice to be acknowledged for my time I guess. I was reminded I had booked a standard 2 queen bed room, but had been upgraded to a king suite with spa tub.
I was intrigued, I’ve had a few spa tub rooms in my day (not by choice). And they are usually interesting, and many times not very classy and downright cheesy.
So upon entering my room after walking past the minibar set up I was greeted by a two person corner tub. And within arms length if your arms were as long as an albatross, was the king bed and to form a nice triangle was the flat screen. It was oddly weird and cool at the same time.
The room was spacious, clean and modern it just sported a tub in the room. The bathroom was not large but it had a rain shower modern sink and glass tile in the shower. Except for the size I would not mind having these fixtures and finishes in my house. I guess since I work in the flooring industry cool finishes and flooring are definitely NOT lost on me. Nameless designer you’ve done good.
The hotel is on the West side and about 10-15 minutes from downtown without traffic. It’s main strength is that it’s literally across the street from the 1988 Olympic Park, where the Ski Jump and a few other winter events were held. So if you want to ski or do a few other in town winter sports it’s great for that.
It also has a full restaurant that was actually packed, I was pleasantly surprised at the menu selection too. They also have a spa and gym. Sorry no pictures of this, just the room
When and if I make it back here I’d have no problem staying here again, even I’m this room.
