Arrived in Calgary, shower freshen up then met with Brian and Mary Ann Smith for a tour of the town and great Italian meal. Thanks to both of you. Now for some well earned sleep.
6:30am alarm. This. Is. Too. Early. To. Be. Awake. On. Holidays.
Up and at 'em to get ready for our voyager canoe sojourn on Lake Louise! Hmmm, weather not looking so hot, and as we arrived it started to rain heavily. Yep, canoe ride cancelled. Poor Julia Goolia, she was really looking forward to this. At least we lucked out with the …
In less than an hour, Mom will be here to pick Dad & I up and drive us to the airport hotel. Our adventure begins tomorrow morning at 4 am, and neither of us wanted to waste 45 minutes driving from home at that time of day. I can barely believe that in 24 hours I'll be somewhere over the Pacific, hopefully fast asleep. My luggage for the trip …
Sunday in Calgary is a fairly quiet day it seems,we used our voucher to go to top of Calgary Tower over 191 meters above ground, very scary for me, a portion has glass floor that hangs over the side, very very scary! This gave us a total view of the entire city and surrounding suburbs, giving us a realisation of just how bad and extensive the recent floods were, an amount of many millions of dollars to clean up ...
... chuck wagon racing - which was quite exciting followed by a fantastic show with acrobats, singers, dancers, a Kiss tribute band that was fantastic, a guy that sang Queen song, in the first he was playing the piano floating over the grounds. Then more acrobatics, a troupe from China who had people on poles while walking on balls. Caught the train back and had a quick drink in the bar before ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Delta Calgary Airport
Wonderful access to airport. Dropped off rental car and walked into the lobby. Room on 8th floor had a great view of the city. Great place to stay before leaving Calgary.
For the second year in a row, I decided to utilise the service and amenities of the Delta Calgary Airport in March. Though I must say that my experience was more enjoyable the first year, the second year was also adequate.
Excellent hotel for flights to US
Excellent hotel for early morning flight to US. Bellman was excellent- gave us custom forms, told us what time we needed to be at airport check-in, and took our bags to check in counter. Very quiet room. We also enjoyed the Steakhouse at the hotel. The convenience of returning a rental car and immediately walking into the hotel was great.
Could fault the staff or hotel
We like most people chose this hotel for the location. We where travelling with a pet and the staff went out of their way to help us and our pet feel welcome. I cannot thank the staff for their kindness and true customer service they provided to us during our overnight stay. The convenience of this hotel is excellent, our room was spacious and clean the return carhire was also right next door. Thanks again.
Clean and Quiet
Stayed for the convenience of being right at the airport as we had a flight out the next day. Was very convenient. Should have went and checked our bags and went back to our room instead of wondering around the airport though. Was clean, quiet and very good service and atmosphere. Would stay again. Try to book in advance as the rooms fill up and get more expensive.
Stayed there in the summer of 03 as had an early morning flight out the next day. Quite convenient hotel, really great! The hotel is marginally clean and seems to be overpriced. The restaurant was okay, not overwhelming. The a/c in the room wasn't working very well when I was there and frankly, I was uncomfortable all night long. Then, in hte a.m. when getting ready at 5 a.m., both of us were drying hair with hair dryer and the circuit breaker tripped (interestingly, the same thing happened to us at a hotel in Jasper ... our hairdryers are pretty standard dryers!!). Of course, at that hour, we're not going to wait for somebody to come fix it ... we had a plane to catch! When i mentioned this to the front desk personnel upon checkout, they said "oh really?" and that was it. Would I ever return here? no. I'd go to a nearby hotel and just deal with the shuttle or car rental return in the a.m. This hotel is just not worth it.
Convenience with a catch
This is probably the most convenient airport hotel I've ever stayed in!
It's also comfortable and the service was of a high standard... that is with the exception of the wake-up call. I was catching an early flight and arranged for a wake-up call but it never came! For an airport hotel this is unbelievable and undid all the other merits. Luckily the room's alarm clock was working!
Good friendly service
Flying into Calgary this hotel wins on for its convienience, literally just accross the road from the terminal. Great when you have travelled from the uk to Houston and then to Calgary the same day. The accommodation and staff are , from a UK perspective execelent. Value for money i find it good value when compared to rates in and around the UK.
Convenient location is not all Delta has to offer
Obviously this is a hotel you stay in for convenience, and it IS convenient. However, the Suites are lovely, with duvets instead of comforters, lots of space, tasteful decorations and all the amenities.
Had an opportunity to eat two meals at the hotel and both were superlative.
You can't beat the location of this hotel - across the street from the airport - that is the only reason I keep staying there. The accommodation is not worth the price charged. It is marginally clean. The front desk staff automatically give you the first available room at the farthest possible point from the elevator, and I now ask to be at least a little closer especially since I always make this trip by myself. As well, being close to the airport I have often been across the hall from a group of partiers heading off on vacation the next morning. Not too restful. Finally, the restaurant doesn't open in time to have breakfast before heading over to the airport for an early (0700) flight back to the U.S. But, the trade-off is that you can turn in your rental car the night before at the airport, and only need to walk across the street to catch a flight. The consolation is that I can have the Tim Horton's coffee and donuts that I miss by living in the U.S. :-) The hotel was better and more modestly-priced before it became part of the Delta chain.
