Similar to the Sandman in Vancouver, the staff were extremely helpful and friendly here, however we were quite disappointed with the hotel overall. The Elevators were slow and had a mind of their own! We felt that the room was slightly worse for wear with a rather old and loud air conditioner, and on one of our days our room... More

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us. I am pleased to hear that you found the staff friendly and helpful. Please accept my apologies that the housekeeper missed your room one day. We are beginning a major renovation of the elevators later this month.

Recently we had to to go to Calgary to attend a funeral. First, we found where the funeral was to be held, and then searched for the closest hotel. The Sandman came up on the GPS, we were tired so we checked in. I was surprised at the price, particularly when we saw the room.The price did not include even... More

Stayed here for 1 night. Room was ok, but dated and very small bathroom but functional. Bed was amazing though - like a cloud with the best pillows ever! Didn't eat at hotel but easy to walk everywhere - near Phillip Island and St Stephens Avenue and lovely places to eat. Not sure id want to spend too much time... More

The room was good and the people were pleasant. I was very distressed to learn, by reading a sign by the elevator to the parkade, that it was shut down at 11 PM and that I would have to climb 3 levels from the parkade if I came back to the hotel after 11 PM. I would never have booked... More

Ammenities were clean and check in was good. We had one problem. We brought a bottle of wine at the in house restaurant. We had one glass each and took extra back to room. Next afternoon we both noticed some wine had gone from bottle. It was taken to staff at reception to notify them. We left it with them... More

In response to your review from last weekend - please be aware that we did in fact follow up with the housekeeper that cleaned your room and she in fact does not drink alcohol due to her religious beliefs and has been employed by the hotel for over 7 years. I'm happy to hear that your room was clean and... More

My husband was enrolled in a weekend course and this hotel was the closest and least expensive option. We arrived late Friday night, conviently there is a city owned parking garage attached to the hotel, only $5 a night for Friday, Saturday, Sunday. Great option if you are only staying the weekend. Getting from the parking lot to the hotel... More

We stayed here for one night after flying into Calgary and before driving to Banff. Reasonable size room and comfortable king-size bed. Very small bathroom but did the job with plenty of hot water. We ate breakfast in the restaurant and it was good although the drinks were luke warm. The address comes up as 7th Avenue but this is... More

This hotel is very tired and disappointing, the rooms were shabby, the pool was cold and the hot tub closed by the Alberta health as authority. The reception staff were helpful but we didn't venture into the restaurant, it appeared from the doorway to be stuffy and stale smelling.

Our trip to the Canadian Rockies starts with our first stop in Calgary at the Sandman Hotel. This hotel is more for visitors on the move or a transit stay or for those on a budget. Our stay was a decent one. It was centrally located in the city centre so most of the restaurants and shops were within walking... More

The traveller who reviewed this hotel before me got it dead on. I was at the Sandman for 4 nights, 2 of which were spent with a noisy air conditioner that made the floor a wet mess. It took me 2 tries to get it fixed, and once it was fixed still did not work too well and was still... More

Thank you for your comments. As has been previously stated - we are working diligently on upgrading the hotel, from guestrooms to elevators to wifi. With 300 rooms this does take time, however we are around 30% complete and continue to move forward and have received many compliments on the upgrades to date from regular guests. More
