The suite was clean, well maintained and very comfortable. We found it to be a great size, the layout and access to the unit was good, and while yes, there was some noise from upstairs, it was not an inconvenience, especially since we were travelling with a small child.
The pictures don't really do the unit justice, we were very happy with it, and it was such good value. Having our own kitchen and access to the laundry was important, and Laurel even invited us to the community centre kids Christmas party, which was wonderful! We loved having the chance to build a snowman, have snowball fights, and our 4yo loved the visiting rabbits in the garden. Tobogganing at Shaganappi park probably has to be the highlight of our time in Calgary.
There are parks within easy walking distance (even in winter) and convenience stores are just a short walk. The c-train is about a 15 minute walk, buses are a little closer. The c-train will take you to westbrook mall just one stop west, into the city and the zoo, or south to Chinook Mall and Heritage Park if you change trains in the city.
We really enjoyed our stay, thanks again Laurel!
