Hilton Garden Inn Calgary Airport
Travel Blogs from Calgary
We set off from Banff to Calgary along the motorway. I had instructed Maggie (navigator) to take us the fastest route. However we called in for a picnic lunch at a roadsise information office and they advised taking a more scenic route 1a - this turned out to be good advice as we passed through some very nice towns. It seems that this route was …
Took a night flight from Seattle to Calgary. Arrive in Calgary at 11 PM. No hassle going through immigration and custom. Went directly to bed...
... plans for this trip a few months ago and so did not take into consideration the fall hours which are shorter than the summer ones. We usually think of these things but I guess we missed this one. Street Luge is available but not until 1 in the afternoon.
We head to the car and start frantically checking other sites in Calgary. The Zoo sounds fun but it ...
... wanted to take a shot of the Sittting Eagle statue near our hotel. Calgary seems to be a city in transition. There are some nice old buildings across from industrial buildings downtown. Which strikes me as strange. But then again I'm used to Toronto where whole areas seem to go by theme. For example, Chinatown, Koreatown, ...
... I got my T4 a couple weeks ago for what is supposed to be my full time job and in a 4 month period I made around $3000. Not sure how anyone is supposed to live off of that. Of course I was supplementing my income with temp jobs in Calgary. Which isn't so bad when its light work. But when I comes to heavy lifting or work that hurts my shoulder, I start running into problems and PAIN...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Garden Inn Calgary Airport
For a comfortable, relaxing and convenient hotel close to Calgary Airport, this hotel really does the trick.
Nice hotel, like all Hilton Garden Inn's. The whole staff is very helpful, friendly and go out of thier way to help in anyway they can. If you're a Hilton Honors member you get coupons for water, Continental breakfast ($3 to up grade to hot made to order) and a $5 coupon for thier pantry (ice cream, drinks, and personal items). It can book full quickly, so try to plan in advance. Free shuttle to airport and local resturants.
Ok Hotel, Value Slipping
Nice hotel, same as every other Garden Inn. Breakfast is not included and will cost $9.00 for shabby buffet. Adding eggs and bacon makes it $13.00 Each person. Restaurant service PAINFULLY slow but friendly. Other hotels in the area include breakfast in the rate so check around for the best deal. Stayed here last year for $119.00 cad but they have jacked the rates up considerably in the last year. This stay cost 50.00 more per night. Good for 1 or two nights stay max!
We stayed at the Garden Hilton Inn Jan 5/06.It was perfect,room service was great,had a indoor pool,small gym,rooms were VERY clean,and the service was amazing.
We were also booked for Jan 13/06.On our way back from Mexico Our flight was held over in Vancouver,so therefore didn't make it back in time. There were 4 other couples booked for that same date that didn't make it for the same reason. The hotel was kind enough NOT to charge any of us. Exceptionable service was given so therefore we WILL be staying here again.We highly recommend the Hilton Garden Inn over any of the other airport hotels we have stayed at in the past.
We stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn for one night before flying out to Vegas. It is located just off McKnight Blvd. in Calgary, close to the airport. The hotel is quite new and very well appointed. Our room had a king size bed, coffee maker, microwave, bar fridge, work station for business travellers, and was beautifully furnished. It was clean and comfortable. Other amenities included free coffe or tea in the lobby for guests, a very nice lounge with double-sided fireplace and restaurant. There is a free shuttle service to and from the airport (and the driver gave us complimentary cookies from the chef!) and you can park your vehicle for free for the duration of your stay. The staff was friendly and helpful, the room service was quick and tasty, and the price is very affordable at $109 a night. Make a reservation ahead of time though as it's usually booked solid three to four nights a week.
My mother and I stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn for one night (Sept 2005)before catching an early plane. It is relatively new, 5 or 6 years old, and nice and close to the airport. So, I was expecting typical airport noise. Fortunately, I cannot say I heard anything to disturb my sleep.
Relax by the Airport.
An excellent choice for an airport hotel. Convenient 24 hr. shuttle service to and from the airport/rental cars. Super clean with very comfy beds and pillows. Delicous restaurant. Wonderful pool and hot tub. Free internet use in the business center. Professional staff. I will definitely stay here again the next time I'm flying in and out of Calgary.
Good, comfortable, convenient hotel
Very comfortable hotel with the usual Hilton quality facilities and service. Premium room good value - spacious and comfortable, with amazingly little aircraft noise. In house restaurant has good food at reasonable prices, and service is excellent throughout. Front desk staff friendly and helpful. Lots of parking and reasonably convenient for the C-Train at Rundle on the Whitehorn line to go downtown.
One of the best restaurants in the area for steaks is Carvers restaurant at the Sheraton Cavalier. Expensive but great food and great service.
I could not say anything that I didn't like about the hotel. Friendly staff, quiet room, nicely decorated and comfortable beds. I would stay here again. There are other exits from the airport so it was tricky finding it. Appears to be fairly new.
A Gem Right at the Airport
My family stayed 2 nights at this well appointed hotel in Calgary. It's located about a 5 minute drive from the airport. The rooms are large with comfortable beds, a large bathroom and a small kitchenette. The staff is very helpful and friendly. My daughters loved the enclosed pool and hottub. The lobby is nicely decorated. All in all, a great little hotel centrally located to the airport. Be sure to eat at Earl's right down the road!!
