International Hotel Calgary closed until further notice

The City of Calgary and Surrounding area of Southern Alberta continue to recover from devastating flooding over the past several days that has affected thousands of individuals and business' on an unprecedented scale.  We hope you and your family are safe.

The International Hotel was directly affected by the emergency, and we have been without power since June 21st, when we shut our generator down after the last guest and staff members had been evacuated.  Our Maintenance Team and restoration crew have been in the building since Monday assessing the damage and working on getting the hotel re-opened.  

The International Hotel did sustain considerable damage due to water backing up into the lower levels of the hotel, which affected our fire suppression system, electrical room and elevators.  We are working as quickly as possible to repair and replace this equipment, so that the City Inspectors can approve and deem it safe to turn on the power and services.  

Unfortunately our pool and health club were damaged and will need to be rebuilt.  There is slight damage to our dining room, but our lounge and kitchen can be operational within 24 hours of power being restored.  Lobby, guest accommodation, and meeting space are undamaged.  

Currently our phone system and computer systems are down, and we have had limited access to our company emails.  Currently our main telephone line is being routed to our reservation call centre, and emails are being answered by our staff working from home.  We thank everyone for their patience and understanding.  Our offices are scheduled to re open on July 2nd, 2013.  

However, as the Safety and Security of our Guests are a priority, the hotel will remain closed to the public until further notice.   In the worst case scenario the hotel will reopen on July 20, however we anticipate opening earlier and we will post updates and update our client as soon as we have more specifics.  We look forward to welcoming our guests back to the hotel in the future.

Our thoughts and hearts go out to our clients, colleagues and friends as we all deal with the devastation and recovery.
