Previous components to this trip:
Singapore – London on Singapore Airlines, First Class
London – Calgary on British Airways BA103, B787, Business Class
This time, as I was flying into Calgary and out of Vancouver, I had to stay at hotels along the way.
Rather than go into detail for any of the hotels, I’ve just listed them, with some photos and some general scores of rooms, service, food.
Best Western Plus, Calgary
This was the first hotel I stayed at, and because I arrived quite late at night from London on BA103, I didn’t really get a chance to take many photos so apologies for that.
Room 7 – didn’t take a photo this time around.
Service 7 – reception was very helpful
Food 6 – breakfast was just ok
The breakfast was really substantial, but quite bland.
Banff Inn, Banff
Room 7 – clean and comfortable. The bathroom was clean.
Service 6 – would have scored higher if reception were a bit more forthcoming with information (regarding when breakfast) and advice (suggestions for dinner)
Food 6 – breakfast was only average
Days Inn, Revelstoke
Room 7 – The room was a bit dated but kept very clean.
Service 7 – staff were really helpful with suggestions and cleaning the room early or later depending on my schedule.
Food 6 – again average breakfast
Hampton Inn, Kamloops
Room 8 – room appeared newer and were always kept clean
Service 7 – reception was good with providing directions and recommendations
Food 7 – typical hotel breakfast
Royal Anne, Kelowna
Room 7 – nice clean and well kept rooms
Service 7 – service was limited but pleasant.
Food 6 – decent but standard hotel food
Radisson, Vancouver Airport
Room 8 – near the city of Vancouver, so obviously you are expecting a higher quality of room
Service 8 – reception/breakfast and staff generally were proactive in helping with issues/questions etc
Food 8 – as befits an international chain, the breakfast was the best of the hotels.
