|Prox Card Holder to Initiate Lights|
Upon recounting our tale of woe at check in, they immediately upgraded us to a deluxe room, in a location that was fairly secluded so we didn’t have to worry about noisy neighbors. We wound up with a corner room facing on one side the Marriott, and the other the Calgary Tower. The room itself was incredibly spacious with a large bed, sofa, walk in closet and beautiful bathroom. The hallways were eerily quiet in the late afternoon and at night, with music playing softly only during the day. The room was also extremely quiet once inside, no noise could be heard from the hallway or adjoining rooms once inside.
|Lighting Controls On the Bed|
The room itself was well designed, with light switches right beside both sides of the bed so you could control all of the room lights from the bed without having to get up. For plugging in your electronics, there was a panel built into the desk and hidden. It consisted not only of electrical outlets, but also USB, HDMI, and an audio plug. The storage itself is unobtrusive, with shelves built into the wood paneled walls to store the iron and ironing board. The walk in closet contained ample closet space to hang items up, put clothing into drawers, an area to sit to put your shoes on, as well as an in room safe large enough to accommodate 2 laptops.
|Do Not Disturb Control|
The bed itself was exceptionally comfortable, along with fluffy sheets, comforter and a mountain of pillows. The only disappointment was that there was no coffee machine in the room other than a Nespresso machine, and the pods were $2.50 per piece. Which meat that the only way to make hot water for tea was to run water through the Nespresso machine without a pod, which really only resulted in luke warm water and the tea, we had to provide ourselves.
The staff were very accommodating, as when we checked in, they had been unable to find the booking we’d made online the night previous, but quickly checked us in regardless so that we could settle in ASAP instead of standing at the front desk waiting for them to find the booking. The next morning when we checked out, they even followed up with us to make sure that we managed to finally get a night’s rest since they remembered what we had told them during check in about our previous nights at Hotel Arts.
The staff are very accommodating, even though they cannot find my Booking.com booking, they quickly work to put us into a room and upgrade us, so they do can allow us to settle in. they have us email the booking.com booking to them so they can ensure they match the price we were quoted
