Room itself was very noisy with water pipes that rattled loudly when neighbouring rooms and my own, took showers. Street noise can be noisy but surprisingly the C-Train itself was not loud at all. The location is excellent. With the C-Train LRT right beside hotel you can hop on and off the train for free within the downtown core 24... More

Stayed here for just over a week in March/April. I was arriving in Calgary at short notice and needed somewhere Downtown that was reasonably priced. After hunting around online, I was basically left with a choice of either the Palliser or the Sandman. Given the price difference I opted for the latter. This isn't a bad hotel as such- the... More

The hotel is located in the city center, really close to the metro stop and 15 min on foot from the main shopping area. Clean, average sized room with WIFI/TV. Underground parking available, even if at quite at quite high price; in addition the height clearance for underground parking is low, be aware of that if you drive a SUV... More

My family and I stayed in two rooms at this hotel. The checking in process was very frustrating. After a nine hour flight we arrived at the hotel at 3.30pm and waited in a long line at reception. We were very surprised that our rooms weren't ready, although I accept that the hotel policy is to have rooms available by... More

Stayed in that hotel for couple of times. baggage lost worth of $400.00, because of hotel staff, complained to hotel GM, Susan, instead of calling and asking from staff, she tried to convince me to take the blame and then offered a meagre compensation. and then backed off from her compensation. the terrible and worst ever top management.

It is a disappointment that following considerable efforts in finding a suitable resolution to your concerns, you have not found closure to your unfortunate circumstance. Leaving personal items behind one's stay is inconvenient at best, however the required guest follow-up timeline was extensively overdue. Hotel properties are simply not in the position to store left behind items indefinitely. Despite your... More

Let's start with the good: bed is very comfortable. For the most part the rooms are nicely appointed. I love the pool area it's a very attractive layout. The staff have been very friendly, and the two meals I had at the restaurant were fantastic. Downtown location is quite convenient. Now, the not so good: 4 day stay. Television never... More

Normally big hotels like these are pretty clinical and cool with there guests but I must say this one was very personable. Met with a smile and genuine interest after a long driving day was a pleasant start to a 2 night stay. The room was very comfortable and clean. The hotel is well placed in the city if you... More

Having always, where possible, stayed at a Sandman Hotel, I found this location to be in need of a complete makeover. Granted that it is situated smack in the middle of the city. However, it's condition indicated that it should have been situated outside city-center. My room was poorly kept, needed painting and, the coat hangers were the perfect size... More

This was our first night in Calgary (we arrived this day from Frisco) Our room in the 21th floor was very small, just one Queen-size bed for 2 person, the linen was rived and washed-out. No storage space, bathroom very small. Needs a refurb! Furnishings, carpets, decorating all in desperate need of renovation.

We stayed here for one night but wouldn't recommend it. The room was dark and not well maintained. The base of he bed was larger than the mattress and I kept catching my toe on the corner, could not get TV working and when u rang the desk they promised to send someone up 3/4 of an hour later, I...
