Today, I was able to view the new Residence Inn By Marriott located in Downtown/Belt line District located at 610 10 Ave SW, Calgary, AB T2R 1M3 (587) 885-2288
Designed by Frank Architecture.ca Textured walls, with metal staircases, and huge windows that one can see the Calgary Tower, and also the mountains from the 33rd floor.
As a family with four children, we have stayed in a lot of residence inn’s throughout the United States; as it provides a kitchen and enough space to sleep without having to book two rooms.
The King Size suite, one could definitely put up their feet and make it home especially if travelling for long business trips.
The Family suite, has 2 queen beds, with the pull out couch. It feels more roomy for the family to hang out, and gather around for a meal.
The eating area is spacious, and it has waffle makers. If you have waffle makers, you know you have landed on a great breakfast area! There is a large dining area, for happy hour and where one could catch a meal, even if they weren’t staying in the hotel, with a bar service near by. The outside courtyard has lots of space to visit with bbq and fireplaces.
To work off those waffles, just off of the lobby on the main floor, there is a fitness area with a loft. You will find treadmills, exercise balls, flex machines, elliptical machines, with a view of the Calgary Tower. The hotel does not have a pool, but there are plenty of fun wave pools in the City of Calgary, to check out.
This is a beautiful hotel, who honors the founder of the Calgary Stampede Guy Weadick, throughout the murals, photographs, and even the western boot stitching on the headboards of the beds. You will definitely feel that you have stepped into a modern western heritage hotel! Yahoo, hope you can visit soon!
