Hey everybody,

da Ogi zwei Tage nach Calgary auf eine Messe musste, habe ich kurzerhand die Chance genutzt und bin die 300 Km von Edmonton mit Ogi und seinem Boss Peter zusammen nach Calgary gefahren. Nette Cowboystadt.. da es aber bei -20 Grad draußen kaum auszuhalten war, und nach wenigen Minuten meine Nase eingefroren war.. habe ich …

Jasper to Calgary 420 kms 5 hrs ish but 100 kms of snow driving and the glaciers covered in cloud again, bummer, and in one piece 10 kms in very dicey snow and ice conditions at the top of the pass. We made it in in good time 6 hours with a break for lunch in Canmore. Best ever coffee, like home and food you could taste great. Calgary washing catch …

On the recommendation of one of the staff we went to Nellies for breaky, not too bad Charlie liked his, mine was MEH.....We then bought an all day pass on the train and went to the end of the line in one direction, saw suburbia, very similar to home. We came back to the city and took a walk down Stephen Way which is pedestrian mall, …

Got up when we felt like it this morning no schedule took our time getting showered and dressed and headed downstairs for breaky or what the restaurant called brunch, pretty good brunch but way too much. Took off for a walk to Princes Island Park and just happened by Eau Clair Markets, this weekend at the markets they have A Taste of …

    Historical Traveler Reviews Sandman Hotel Calgary City Centre

    I hope for other guests that my stay was the exception to the rule


    Well, where to start. First, I should mention that I am not a fussy traveller. The only thing I need in a hotel is a good bed and a clean room. I don't mind about the view and the room size. Proof to that, before arriving in Calgary, I stayed at the Howard Jonhson in Canmore which is definately not a palace but was a 5/5 for cleanliness and comfort. So my review relates real problems encountered at the Sandman and I wanted to share that with possible future guests.

    Not bad


    Rooms were fairly small and darkish but not a bad hotel. Clean enough. We paid £57. Parking was £6 extra per day. Lots of food places around and good location. Summed up...s'ok !

    Great for the money


    Got the room for £40 per night so was not expecting much.

    Arrived at the hotel and I was pleasantly surprised. The staff at reception( and throughout the hotel) were friendly and extrememly helpful.

    The room was basic and clean but had everything we needed as we were not planning on spending much time in the room.

    Had breakfast in Moxies eaxh morning which was really good and not too expensive for a hotel restaurant.

    Used the pool and hot tub a couple of times, which while small was never busy so it didnt matter.

    Location was perfect just a five minute walk from everything.

    If you are looking for a bit of luxury stay at the Palliser but if you just need somewhere to lay your head stay here.

    Beware of address


    Difficult to drive to based on the address if you don't understand the city street layout. This hotel is actually on the corner of 7th Avenue South-West and 7th Street South-West. Unfortunately the address provide was 'Avenue' which is not accessible to normal road traffic - it's the Tram-line!!! Other than that - a typical city hotel, adequate and comfortable.



    Stayed for 3 nights in April 2004, got a fantastic huge corner room on 22nd floor facing south and east and a full kitchenette. Staff were excellent, and could use business centre to access internet for free. Great location, fantastic stay, and good value - booked on Expedia a few days before and got this amazing room for a very good price. Would defintely stay there again and at other Sandman properties as a result.

    Good place to stay


    This hoel is in a great location, you can take the C train for free right outside the door or it's only a 10min walk to the town centre!

    The rooms are clean and are a fair size too. The hotel staff are very friendly and there's a good bar, restaurant and pool with gym facilities (the latter two are almost always empty!). There are a couple of shops right across the street ideal for cheap snacks and the science museum is a leisurely stroll up the road. This was a fairly inexpensive hotel and I wouldn't hesitate to book it again next time I'm in Calgary

    Fantastic service and location


    Can't praise the staff enough - warm, friendly and very helpful.

    Comfortable clean rooms. Very good location - on the same street as the C Train - therefore free transport to all the great shops. Had some of our best meals in Moxies.

    Great Place


    A really great place to stay. Excellent large rooms, good facilities and restaurant. Exceptionally helpful staff. City Train stops right outside, giving free travel within the downtown area. Highly recommended.

    Location and Service


    Location is key for this Hotel, and it has everything you need. Pool, hot-tub, Moxies, Mbar lounge. The service is second to none.

    Transportation is located right outside the doors to take you anywhere in the city. Take my word, Try the Downtown Sandman Hotel in Calgary, you will enjoy the value and service.

    Sandman's Value is all in the Location


    This hotel is basic, clean and located right downtown on the LRT line. Renovations to the common areas have improved the hotel greatly, a new Moxies and an M-Bar on the upper level were added.

    The traditional y-shaped Sandman pool is located on the second level. Its a very closed-in environment that is not conducive to relaxation. The small hot tub rewards guests for their determination.

    Early 80's furnishings in original fabrics adorn the guest rooms. The washrooms are replete with those early 80's essentials - brown and beige tiles and a heat lamp.

    All in all, you pay for the location, and if there is value in that alone, this hotel does its job well.
