The hotel

If you're looking for a comfortable base from which to explore the vibrant city of Calgary, look no further! Being close to the LRT (Light Rail Transit system), you can enjoy easy access to a number of attractions, including Calgary Tower, Stampede Grounds and Calgary Zoo. If you fancy doing some shopping, the Eaton Centre is just a few blocks away, with Eau Claire Market and 17th Avenue retail and entertainment district a little further. There are also bars and restaurants aplenty on your doorstep. At the end of a busy day Sandman Hotel Calgary City Centre offers a wonderful respite.

Or why not cool off in the indoor swimming pool or enjoy a workout in the fitness centre?

This hotel has about 20 floors. The three ice machines for the entire hotel are located in the narrow hallways surrounded by rooms where people are trying to sleep. WHO thought that was a good idea? Don’t you know how loud those ice machines are? There are people at all hours constantly getting ice. Don’t get the rooms next to an ice machine!!!!.… Read more

If you do, you deserve a discount for lack of sleep. Read less

Very clean and comfortable with reasonable facilities. Very helpful, attentive and friendly staff. Good bar with nice food. Little tip though dot have the chowder. Tasty but not a properly chowder. Only trouble with otherwise nice room is the noisy air con.

Nice centrally located hotel. Room was spotlessly clean and spacious. Nice selection of toiletries and good towels. Not sure what the point of the coffee maker was as no pods supplied but haven’t marked it down for that reason very helpful reception staff. Restaurant on site good with excellent sized portions.

The actual hotel was nice. A good room with good facilities and clean. The welcome at reception was great and the service we had was on point. We did use the restaurant/bar- Moxies for both evening meals as this was fantastic. It was busy, great service and the food was brilliant. My only gripe is its location. It's central and on the tram line, but the area is quite unnerving. There were a fair few homeless and drug users around which made us want to not leave on an evening. As I said, it is on the tram line as this is loud. Even 15 storeys high, but I used the sound to drift off! Read less

Excellent hotel. Very friendly and helpful staff. Great location. Hotel at the end of the skywalk (amazing - like an indoor village). Tram outside free to downtown although if able within walking distance (15 - 20mins) Room amenities great (kettle, microwave and fridge to use).
