Coast Plaza Hotel & Conference Centre
Clean rooms, nice hotel
This hotel is on the North East side of Calgary and it is kind of far from Downtown Calgary, so if you are looking to spend time downtown this might not be the right hotel for you. The rooms are nice and very clean and it is a nice hotel for the price. I would recommend this hotel if you need to stay in the area or are on a business trip, but probably not if you are going on vacation and wanting to spend time in Downtown Calgary.
Needs more work
I stayed at this hotel twice in the last month – the rooms were okay, very clean and the beds were comfortable. The hotel is undergoing renovations and they are badly needed. My two issues were that during both stays (approximately three weeks apart), the elevator in Tower B was not working – one elevator for 12 floors makes for long waits.
During my second stay a group of 10 of us had booked a working dinner at the Horizons Bistro. It was nice that they gave us a separate room and two waiters. But that was the end of the nice. We had ordered the appetizer platter to start while we waited for a couple of people – that was fine, but they didn’t clear off our side plates when our main meals came so the table was really crowded. So we cleared the plates ourselves – given that we had two waiters for 10 people, I’m not sure why we had to bus our own table.
One of our group waited a full 25 minutes after the rest of us were served for her salmon – no explanation about why it took so long nor any accommodation on the bill. The rest of us had meals that ranged from lukewarm to stone cold. We had ordered a couple of bottles of wine and when we were drinking it we all noticed large amounts of sediment in our glasses – again, the restaurant staff did nothing to make amends for this. This group meets 3 – 4 times a year in Calgary and although the hotel location is good for us with plenty of parking, I doubt we will be booking there again after the meal we had.
Decent stay- friendly staff!
Stayed here on business the first week of October for 3 nights. They were renovating which is a good sign since the place is getting a little old. Room was comfortable and clean, nothing fancy. Restaurants were good on site and staff all around we’re friendly and helpful. Also hosted a meeting in one of their rooms and it was well set up and equipped.

This was a last minute stop-over and the hotel was very accommodating. It was obvious they were under renovation and some of the public areas were being repaired but the room was comfortable and clean and the staff were very hospitable. I would not hesitate to stay here anytime!

Best hotel in a week of traveling!!
I stayed at the Coast Plaza on the first night of a week of traveling, and if I had known what I was in for I would have stayed here the entire week. I slept soundly through the night which is unusual for me as I am a light sleeper. The room was spotless and the staff were friendly and helpful. I was there on a weekend and was a little concerned about a previous comment in regards to the club, but did not hear a thing. There was a convention at the hotel the night I stayed and with one working elevator for my tower it did take a minute or two to come but the funny thing is that I am at a smaller hotel with three elevators and it takes longer to get an elevator where I am now. I look forward to coming back and seeing first hand the imporvements they are making. Thank you Coast Plaza
