Historical Traveler Reviews Hampton Inn & Suites by Hilton Calgary-Airport
We stayed at this hotel for one night prior to an early morning flight out of the Calgary airport. Having just wrapped up a stay at the gorgeous grounds, but small rooms at the Chateau Lake Louise, this hotel provided an interesting contrast.
The rooms here were great. The bedding was excellent, the room was clean and spacious. Comparing this room with our room at Lake Louise one wonders why anybody would pay the exorbitant amount to stay at the Landmark. Of course, the Chateau isn't all about the quality of the room and it's location is spectacular compared to almost anywhere much less the side of a highway near the airport. But nevertheless, the Hampton felt like 4-star quality to me.
I'd stay here again and recommend it to anybody who has a need to stay near the airport.
A Pleasant Surprise
I went to Calgary for business last week and had a hard time deciding where to stay. I was shocked of how much Calgary has changed since my last visit. I needed to stay close to the airport so I started phoning hotels clustered in the Airport vicinity.
The rates offered are almost similar from one hotel to another, but what attracted me to The Hampton Inn Airport are the extras from other places were included with what I am paying for at the Hamptons, such as breakfast and shuttle service.
As an Interior Designer (and a great believer in Feng Shui), I was pleased to arrive upon a minimalist designed Hampton lobby which continues to the breakfast room. The guestrooms were excellent as well, especially for business travelers, it's designed to be relaxing and not clutter one's mind after a long day of work and travel.
The service was excellent. The staffs were friendly and perceptive of my needs. I arrived at the Hamptons ahead of my luggage and was a bit perturbed; the front desk agent assured me that they will notify me right away when my luggage is delivered.
I guess little things like these does make life more enjoyable on the road.
Where to start?
So many great things to say about my stay at this amazing hotel. First off all, I really enjoyed my experience in the breakfast room. The lady who took care of it couldnt have been any more on top of things than she was for that day. Second of all, the exercise facilities were very up to date and there was eveything that i needed for my workouts. I also really enjoyed the pool area as it was very clean and very modern. But what i believe made my stay amazing was the guest services agent named Cody. He took my initial reservation and did he know what he was talking about. He was also very polite and handled everything very well. Thanks Cody! If anyone who reads this review is staying in Calgary, be sure not to stay anywhere else except for the Hampton Inn & Suites Calgary Airport. Ta Ta
Brand New Hotel
This hotel has just finished a multi million dollar renovation. What an amazing job!!! I have stayed at this hotel for the past ten years on my corporate travel. The rooms are simply amazing - new everything!!! Staff is superb as usual!!! The ownership really takes pride in this property and making sure their guests are treated with ultimate customer service. BRAVO!!!
Great location, decent price
Stayed here for one night on an award stay after a trip to Banff and Jasper.
I stay at many Hampton Inns throughout the year and this one was way above average.
The room was spacious, and had the new Hampton Inn bed. The flat-screen TV had a crisp picture, while the pool was nicer than many more expensive properties.
Breakfast was standard Hampton Inn fare. The hot stuff could use an overhaul right about now, or maybe I'm just on the road too often.
The hotel is right next to a Chili's and a BK, so you don't have to hassle with finicky child eaters. Other restaurants are a short drive away.
It's a 5K straight shot to the airport if you're in a hurry.
I'd happily return, which I can't say about every Hampton Inn I've stayed at.
Clean, spacious hotel - breakfast bar needs improving
The rooms are spacious, and well appointed with fridges & microwaves and have very comfortable beds. The property itself was quiet, clean and well maintained even though there were some renovations going on during our stay. The pool area was clean and ample towels were provided. The breakfast bar area had plenty of seating, but the food was not very appealing. It seemed to be better on weekdays, rather than weekends, with a fruit salad and waffles. Weekend offerings were basic (apples, oranges, and bananas), mostly white bread, english muffins, donuts and muffins. The hot food was sausage patties and egg patties (yes - little round, flat egg patties). Overall, far too processed.
Going downhill fast
This hotel was new about 5 years ago and was a great place to stay. On my last visit I noticed that the place had deteriorated. The hallways and doors were not very well cleaned and the suite maintenance was minimal. The once new carpets and furniture are tired and dingy. As my business associate said "remind me not to stay here again"
We stayed at this property for one night after driving from Vancouver to Calgary. We were tired after the 10 hour drive and were not disappointed with this hotel. It is quiet, clean, comfortable and well-priced.
We had 2 queen beds in the room which was more than enough space for the both of us. My only complaint was that their pool closed a bit early for my liking (I like to swim later in the evening when there are fewer kids).
The free continental breakfast was wonderful and provided added value. Good selection of warm and cold foods, fruit, cereal, breads, coffee, tea, juice, etc etc. The staff does a good job of replenishing the buffet items as people eat them. Make sure you go down early though - I think breakfast was only available until 10am.
The hotel was also close to the Sunridge Mall, Chapters w/ Starbucks, Shoppers Drug Mart, Krispy Kreme, Olive Garden restaurant and the C-train line. The connecting streets around the hotel are a bit confusing if you're driving, so ask the front desk for directions.
Would definitely stay here again.
Excellent airport hotel
I flew into Calgary late at night before traveling to the Rockies. It was a little confusing to find the hotel shuttle van at the airport, but the shuttle was very prompt getting us back the following morning. The front desk person at check in was amazingly cheerful for 1 in the morning. The free breakfast was well-stocked and of the usual average quality. The rooms were clean, spacious, and quiet. Overall, a very good chain hotel.
This was a wonderful hotel.
Great Service, gave rides to the airport to and from as and when I wanted.
The wonderful price of $90 CAD included.
A big room with a HUGE King bed (What I asked for) Free Local Calls Refrigerator in the room Microwave Oven in the room TV (ofcourse) Free Internet in your room if you have a Laptop, Else you can use the one in the Lobby for Free. Gave me additional discount for being AAA.
Could not ask for more.

... and a view of the Canadian Rockies out our dinette window. Our campsite faces south east so we did not see the sunset itself but there was a big fluffy cloud picking up the pinks of the sinking orb and a full moon right above it. The down side is it is an electric only site so with our gray water problem we will need to pack up the entire camper in two days and swing over to the dump station and empty tanks and get fresh water in our ...
... not reply to an email sent a month ago. We have a 2 hour coach trip from Calgary to Banff, where the train leaves from.
Anyway, all organised, along with a very strongly worded email to our travel agent and a copy of the invoice for the trip. Our regular agent was on holidays when we first booked the holiday and passed us onto his supervisor, who is now moving on ! I'm sure they'll apologise, but we were both a bit ****** off.
Still, that's travel !
... our flight 30 minutes EARLIER than in our original itinerary. We get to the check-in desk right after we made fun of Londoners for being constantly in a hurry, often for no reason. Then we find out that instead of a 1235 departure, our flight departs at 1205, a mere 55 minutes from our check in point....The woman at the desk had a look of horror as we told her our itinerary. All of a sudden, we became the very people we were ...

10. Do not forget to wear mittens / gloves. I went to fill up with petrol one day and (although this sounds silly) I didn't know if you were allowed to wear your mittens in case of static electricity causing a spark. I didn't wear them, and the cold metal gas pump combined with the wind and cold froze my poor hands. I had to suck on my fingers to defreeze them upon getting back in the car. I actually had to take a few minutes before I could drive ...
