Overall my experience at the Sandman was fine. You get what you pay for. It is a little tired and the hot water is a bit hard to come by at popular shower times. I stayed there twice due to packages and had different room types. One bathroom was shut the door before you could sit on the toilet. Lack... More

Went for the first weekend of the stampede and it worked out perfect. We arrived late Saturday night and found parking right away in their park aide, (even if we didn't there is 5 levels you can choose from) we were greeted by the manager on duty, who was very friendly and had a great sense of humor, and he...

We arrived very tired from a trip on the Rocky Mountaineer.My husband had left clothes in our hotel in Banff, and the Sandman were very helpful with phone calls and things. Our room was absolutely fine, and the free wifi is a bonus. Not a very pretty position, but very easy walk into the city center. The hotel has a... More

Please do yourself a favour, avoid it ! Do not stay there, it's not worth the money you will spend for. Service is reduced to none. I had to ask for room service in the afternoon when i have left earlier in the morning. Personnel was looking rude after having reported such a mess and for the whole hotel people,... More

The Sandman had most facilities except for fridge in room. The room was clean and modern. The neighborhood was not fantastic and it is not in the city centre but you could walk there. However in it's favour the public transport and taxi rank were outside the door. My son enjoyed the heated pool but was disappointed that the spa... More

I moved here from a beautiful renovated hotel in South Calgary and wished I had stayed South and shuttled downtown. The check in staff were friendly enough and the rooms clean but very tiny, turn around in the hall to back into the bathroom sort of small. I had a top floor room (23) but the street noise was atrocious... More

The Hotel is well situated, close to trams/shops/restaurants. A short tram ride to the Calgary Tower and Saddle Dome. The accommodation is clean and tidy. I cannot comment on the Restaurant. Staff very helpful and courteous. A reasonable priced Hotel offering good service and rooms.

Average hotel, average room, average restaurant, average service! Nothing much else to say about the place, doesn't really leave a lasting impression, it was just so average. One of those places you can hardly remember staying at!

We arrived at The Sandman on 2nd June 2014 at 7.00 PM as part of the Rocky Mountaineer package. Firstly baggage handling was supposed to be included, they don't offer this and at no time with us struggling with bags did they offer assistance. On arrival there was one staff member for check in, by the time we got in... More

I have been a supporter of this hotel since the late 1990's. It is good value and well located. However, I am my hotel room right now and in the hallway is a small table. In the early afternoon, there had been a tray of left over food and a Ziploc bag of homemade food. When I came back in... More
