Here are some recent comments from our guests...

This was a great place to stay for both downtown hangs and easy driving to other locations. The place was beautiful and clean and had everything you could want. The full kitchen was nice for staying in so as not to have to eat out for every meal. The package received upon arrival was clear and helpful. I'd recommend this place for sure! - Renee 
Service was excellent, very clean, had washing machine and dryer, had ceiling lights so place was bright. Spacious. Very good value for money - Vivienne 

Worked very well for our family with grown children - basically we stayed in a 2-bedroom apartment with all amenities including full laundry. Kitchen was well equipped. Beds were comfy and we enjoyed the fan in the bedroom. Location was good - block from Eau Claire and Prince's Island, easy walking to restaurants e.g Keg. This was a great find for us, not having been to Calgary before (great city btw!) - Nancy 
Did You Know?
You probably already know that shrimp are delicious and can be prepared just about any way you can imagine. However, here are a couple of facts you might not know:
- There are over 2,000 different shrimp species spread out all over the world and in every known marine niche, from the tropics to the Antarctic Ocean.
- Shrimp aren't always so, well, 'shrimpy'. While small shrimp are usually around ½ an inch in length (from head to tail), some varieties can grow to be 12 inches or longer!

Vacation Tips - Finding the Lowest Fare
We'd all like to pay as little as possible for travel and here are some great tips for getting the lowest airline fares online.
Be Flexible on Your Destination - be willing to take advantage of special offers to go anywhere.  Try doing a vague search by continent and flight, insert numerous dates and go from there. 
Do Your Research  - start by finding a good deal on Google, then cross check fares on sites like Kayak, FlightHub, Momondo and Skyscanner to ensure it's the best available rate. Booking direct with an airline may make changes easier, however the cheapest rates are most often found with online aggregators.
Find the Sweet Spot - last minute deals can sometimes be found, however airlines often take advantage of business travelers and increase their last minute rates. 6-12 weeks seems to be the sweet spot for the best deals. For peak and holiday season, book soon after the flights are posted, typically 11-12 months in advance.
Check Local Sites for Foreign Airlines - if you're booking with a foreign airline, always check their local site. They will sometimes offer cheaper fares to locals than what is posted with a travel metasearch engine.
Use Alerts - set up alerts for destinations on Google and numerous sites so that when rate deals or changes are posted, you're the first to know. Be flexible on your dates.
Consider the Unusual - look at booking a vacation in a country that isn't your typical tourist destination but will bend over backwards to keep you happy. Countries that are recovering from natural disasters or civil wars often have fabulous beaches and attractions, and their culture is not accustomed to taking advantage of tourists.
Look for Mistakes - occasionally airlines will throw out an amazing deal in error. Many airlines will choose to honour these mistakes but prepare for alternatives should they choose to renege.

Calgary International Film Festival
ExecSuite is proud to sponsor the 18th Calgary International Film Festival which runs September 20 - October 1, 2017.

The first Calgary International Film Festival was held in 2000 for six days, and was attended by 8,000 people. Within three years, attendance had more than doubled to over 20,000 for the expanded 10-day festival.

Today, the Calgary International Film Festival is a 12-day showcase of up to 200 multi-genre feature and short films from Canada and over 50 other countries. The festival hosts gala events, screenings, special presentations, and a Behind the Screen series that emphasizes unique and exciting ways for filmmakers and fans to interact.

With steady growth over the past three years, in 2016 Calgary Film set a record attendance for the 12-day festival, hitting 36,700 attendees, representing a 4 %  increase in attendance over the previous year. Film Submissions have  more than tripled over the past four years, to over 2,000 in 2016.

The Calgary International Film Festival is now the largest film festival in Alberta, and is the sixth largest in Canada. It is also an Oscar-qualifying festival for short films and was named one of  "50 Film Festivals Worth the Entry Fee" in both 2016 & 2017 by MovieMaker Magazine.

ExecSuite Tower is ideally located midway between the two main festival venues, The Globe Cinema and Eau Claire Cinema. If you're attending the festival, call us before September 1st and quote CIFF for a special festival rate.

Delicious Grilled Shrimp
Since it's grilling season, here is a quick and delicious recipe to add some shrimp to your menu this summer:

3 cloves garlic, minced
1/3 cup olive oil
1/4 cup tomato sauce
2 tbsp red wine vinegar
2 tbsp chopped, fresh basil
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cayenne
2 lbs raw shrimp, peeled and deveined

In a large bowl, mix together garlic, olive oil, tomato sauce, vinegar, basil, salt and cayenne. Once mixed, add shrimp and allow to marinate in fridge for 30-60 minutes, stirring once or twice.

Preheat grill and thread shrimp onto skewers, piercing once near the head and once near the tail.  Discard marinade.

Lightly oil grill.  Cook shrimp on preheated grill for 2-3 minutes per side or until opaque.  Enjoy!
