Coast Plaza Hotel & Conference Centre
excellent stay for group sport tournaments
we were there for a volleyball tournament. check in was seamless. hotel lobby had new renovations done, looks immaculate nice to see new fresh modern look and in keeping up with the other newer hotels around calgary. the beds were very comfortable, room extremely clean. however, the best part of the stay was the breakfast. they have a chef that cooks the meals (beef/pork saugsages, eggs,pancakes, potatoes with mixed pepper). full blown cereal bar, fresh yogurt, and many varieties of fresh fruit. It would be safe to say they set the standard for having best breakfast menu.
the only minor issue i had was the room i was staying (overlooking east) had a spotlight from the ground level pointing upwards and made the room very bright at night. the drapes did not really cover everything, but other than that everything was perfect!
What a nice spot
Well very decent, shuttle to and from the airport makes this spot a breeze to get to the airport, the staff where wonderful, friendly. Rooms were nicely appointed and the beds were very nice. They had a full compliment for a exercise room along with a pool and hot tub that is nice to get into if you have had a long day of travel. Wonderful restaurant on first floor, and several retail outlets within easy walking distance.

My husband I had a layover in Calgary on our way to Cabos. We booked into this hotel because it seemed close to the hotel. They also provided shuttle service to and from the hotel. Unfortunately for us two planes Westjet and Air Canada both had maintenance issues meaning people would be missing connecting flights or not going out till the morning. Vouchers where given out and they all ended up at the hotel we booked. When we tried to get the shuttle they could only take 10 people and their had to be at least 40 waiting. We where informed to get vouchers from our airlines. We where lucky that are plane was late due to maintenance issues so Westjet gave us taxi vouchers to and from the hotel. It would of cost us $45.00 each way and if we waited it probably would of been hours before we got to the hotel as it is 25 minutes each way to the hotel. We also read that their was shuttle service 24/7.Not so they stop at 1 or 2am and don’t start up again till 5am. You can get a taxi voucher between those times if you ask the staff. The staff as great at getting everyone checked in. The restaurant was closed by the time we got their but room service and the bar where they served food was open. The two servers where great getting everyone fed and the food was excellent. The only negative I have to say is the amount of people allowed in the shuttle for such a big hotel and the distance from the airport.

I recently had a 2 week stay here and got to know the staff (some shifts are better than others). They would welcome me by name and if I had any issues at all, they were on them right away and solved the issues. The cleaning staff did exactly what I wanted them to do without me really telling them anything and respected my privacy (I did not want the whole room cleaned every day….).
The hotel provides free juice/hot cider with cookies on a daily basis in the lobby which is nice.
The pool was very nice and I got to enjoy it all to myself every single time (I guess people do not like going to the pool? haha).
As my stay was so long, I had requested a microwave in the room and this was provided at no extra charge which was cool.
Nice place, quick elevators, comfy beds with variable sized pillows for choosing. Temp control in room was good as well. Parking was also adequate. The breakfast spread is large and decent. The restaurant is overpriced for the quality but it is not “bad” just overpriced. Service was still good.

Very Pleasant Calgary Hotel
The Coast Plaza was a pleasant place to stay in Calgary. The rooms were spacious and comfortable and the staff friendly, the location was 20 minutes from the CYYC (YYC) airport and 20 minutes from the downtown, so kind of in the middle of things near 16th Avenue NE (aka The Trans Canada Highway) and Barlow Trail.
The buffet lunches here were really good at Horizons, and the server Lynne was very friendly and a good attentive waitress. The manager Karim Ismaili also checked with us to make sure we enjoyed our meal which was a nice touch. We thought the staff made the place a good and friendly hotel, as otherwise the location is not outstanding, unless you want to be half way between the city centre and airport, or close to the 16th Ave/Hwy 1. There was a Pacific Plaza Mall nearby, which seemed to be mainly Asian themed, with an Asian supermarket and some Asian restaurants inside.
We would stay here again as it was spacious and clean. The staff were also friendly too, which more than made up for an average location.
