After navigating floating platform staircases, dodging living-room-level bosses, and searching for randomly appearing bathroom keys, most homeowners come to regret purchasing houses built by video-game designers. Find respite from the chaos with today's Groupon: for $129, you get a two-night weekend stay in a suite (a $284 value) at the International Hotel Suites Calgary in the heart of downtown. International Hotel Suites Calgary swathes weary travellers and sojourning site-seers in 35 floors of the largest suites in Calgary decked out with elegant, timeless furnishings and ample amenities. Today's Groupon is good for a two-night, Friday and Saturday night stay in an International Studio Suite for up to two people looking to avoid raucous house parties thrown by their hedonistic home. Each restful retreat boasts, in addition to other accoutrements, a balcony, two flat screen TVs, a wet bar for luscious liqueur bathing, and in-room movies and high-speed Internet access. Guests can rest tired toes on new pillow-top beds outfitted with crisp linens and hypoallergenic duvets after a scenic stroll to the business and financial district, Eau Claire, Prince’s Island Park, or Chinatown.
- Far from the anonymous experience you'd find at the major budget chains, the International has character -- along with nicely sized rooms, most with balconies with tremendous views of the skyline, particularly from the hotel's rooftop indoor pool. – Frommer's
- The hotel was well positioned, quiet and had large rooms. The bed was great, really large and comfortable. The room was nice and clean and there was lots of space for our cases etc. – BSSW, TripAdvisor
