“Typical Airport Hotel - perfectly adequate”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

Stopped here a couple of times in July & would do so again if visitng Calgary (a great place to visit). We used it first as an "arrival" point to go on to Yellowstone & a week later as a meeting point for friends arriving from UK; Hotel itself was much as expected albeit the room was bigger & probably better than expected. That the Hotel is located within a huge building construction site was a surprise & that is going to be the situation for some time to come there was no noise from same although there will undoubtedly be when work starts on the buildings that are going to be constructed on the adjacent sites. Like a lot of "Airport" Hotels there is nothing of interest in the walkable area. However, with a free shuttle collection from the airport & a cheap return shuttle price it is pretty good. Has a good restaraunt.

I stayed for 4 nights, it was a nice clean hotel but to do any type of work using their Wifi is dreadful. The connection speed is worse than dialup, very slow and difficult to do work. Also, this is the first hotel that I have stayed at where you have to pay to use the Business Center. To print or use their computer you have to swipe a credit card.

Great place to stay for pleasure but if you need to do work and use internet this place is not recommended.

I've stayed twice now and one suggestion is to definitely ask for a higher floor room. The rooms on the main floor are a bit stale plus the windows have a lot of bushes in front of them so it's hard to get sunlight in your rooms. Shuttle from the aiport is free and I definitely encourage you to take it there and back to the airport as due to the detour, the cab rides are horrendously expensive. Shuttle back is $5 and first come, first served. Would be nice if they had coffee/tea in the lobby in the evening instead of just in the morning. They only have a Moxie's for meals so if you don't have a car, plan ahead if you can. If you go to Moxie's for the breakfast, ask for a table by the window otherwise it's really dark in the restaurant.

Room Tip: Ask for a higher floor.

I recently visited the Sandman Calgary Airport Hotels & Suites for 1 night, after having arrived from Amsterdam. The hotel is conveniently situated close to the airport (although the shortest route was closed because of construction works so it took some sightseeing to get there). It is one of a concentration of different hotels at a crossroads.
Unfortunately the surroundings are mainly construction areas and uninspiring. Meaning there is little you can do. No fancy walk or something. Also the hotel doesn't have a bar. But there is a restaurant attached with a terrace.
The room is good, as is the bathroom. But don't expect extra luxury of any sort.
In summary, if you need to stop over for one night before going on, this is a good hotel to stay. But if you need to stay somewhat longer I would advise to look for something downtown.

Close to the Airport this hotel provides business travelers with perfect solution for overnight stay. The staff is courteous .. there is no disturbance of any sorts, room, washrooms were clean had reasonable rates during the time i visited .. and decent breakfast cafe was there as well .

Room Tip: Better view in rooms facing the same direction as that of the main door of the hotel...

Very comfortable stay with value for money. Friendly courteous staff who were very helpful. Good advice for travel and sightseeing plans. Complimentary fruit in the lobby for snacking. Room was clean with good lighting for reading. Restaurants on site so you didn't have to go searching for one.

Prices were up drastically as there was an oil show in town. It was good to see a welcome in the lobby with cold beer and wine. Somewhat unexpected. Check in was fast and efficient as I had my confirmation number. The room key did not work so I had to return to the front desk. Once inside the room it was clean and comfortable. The only complaints I had is the shower is very difficult to turn off and the water kept running. Hopefully they do not get charged by litre as they will have a hefty bill. Putting the towel on the towel rack for enviornmental purposes does not work. The second day the key did not work again. Express check out on the third day. Definitely not worth the $200+ with taxes.

Room Tip: I was on the bottom floor facing north so it was reasonably quiet even though it is close to the air...
