Coast Plaza Hotel & Conference Centre
Above and Beyond
This is our hotel of choice in Calgary. We are always treated extremely well from the front desk, cleaning personal and dining staff.The rooms are very clean, comfortable and quiet. The beds are very comfy. Rates and billing are accurate. It is very close for shopping and even a casino very close, and lots of restaurants close by. It is pet friendly and lots of places to walk your dog and feel safe at the same time. Will return for sure. Even though they are doing renos you are not inconvenienced at all.
Pretty typical hotel
Room was decent. Rest of the hotel (besides rooms) is tired and even a little smokey smelling. Service was sub par. Stood at the front desk for 5 minutes before someone showed up (some non-front desk staff walked past me without doing anything). Room wasn’t ready at designated check in time. 45 minutes later I could finally check in. They “made up” for it by leaving some cookies in the room – at least that’s something.
I was here for business just 1 night and didn’t get to try the pool or any of that. The breakfast buffet (not included, just in the restaurant) was good, but a few items were quite old tasting.
I probably wouldn’t stay here if it was my own money, but for a business trip where I’m just sleeping and going to a conference, it’s adequate.
Great hotel close to airport and downtown
Great full service hotel close to airport and downtown. Friendly accommodating staff. Excellent breakfast buffet. My hotel of choice when staying in the Calgary area. Lots of parking and large banquet facilities.

Professionals Trying Hard and Succeeding
I stay a lot in hotels on business- I am picky.
First of all, Parking is free and easy. Lobby is impressive. Good start as I had just done a 15 hour duty day.
Check in was exactly what I booked- took about 20 seconds from a friendly professional.
I was a late arrival, and needed a simple good meal- room service was pleasant and arrived very quickly on a warmed plate (very nice touch), with exactly what I asked for by another friendly professional.( The extra glass of milk was appreciated)
The room was what I want in a room- large screen TV with every channel, hot well working shower, clean comfy bed( I know how to check) Lots of very good coffee ( Starbucks Café Verona) WiFi that worked quickly and a Fridge( Did not expect that but it was nice for the fruit I bring on road trips as I have been a road warrior for too many years)
Room ( 821) was dark and Quiet.
Housekeeping was early and quick, although I make a room my own and am a neat kinda guy, so I do not need much, she was particularly nice.
Dinner tonight was terrific-it was a business meeting and our host was attentive but not in the way, the food was exactly what we ordered ( Cobbs Salads and Steak et Frites)
I would stay here again and will recommend this place because all the staff were professional and cared and it showed in the facilities, services and products.

Good mid class stay but aging and stay away from the Wkend Buffet
Stayed two nights on Feb 27 & 28th. This hotel hasn’t been upgraded for 10 years they told me. Still clean rooms but aged bathrooms and overall appearance. Beds are good but heating system is very old with those continuously running fans, But you can turn the fan off for the night. The windows open for fresh air too. Exercise room isnt large but never busy on weekend probably due to a lot of kids sport tournament , family clientelle. The weekend buffet was $14. and terrible. Old burnt and cold bacon that the chef looked at (nobody was taking any) and he just left it out. Canned strawberries and watermelon for the fruit choices. Powdered eggs for the scrambled and some weird pre-made imitation omelettes. I’m sure each identical one came out of a package. They really pushed the buffet and made you wait a long time for any menu choices. Paper thin greasy ham slices that were cold with dried turned up edges on the buffet or same thing just warmer off the menu. Staff in general were good but not polished on cust. service. It is close to an excellent authentic Chinese restaurant and an Aisian market, plus the old Marlborough mall. LRT is very close and close to Calgary Zoo
