Sandman Hotel Calgary City Centre

Reviewed August 18, 2013

Tiny room with very small bed. Noisy air conditioning unit and noise from the trams below. We were very thankful that we were only staying one night. We stayed in 8 hotels on our trip to Canada and the two sandman hotels were both very disappointing.

The downtown Sandman is very well situated for the city of Calgary. The C-train stop is just outside, which ferries you into the city centre for free. The hotel is big and slick, a little anonymous, but the rooms are a good size and very clean. The staff were very helpful with information and requests. Up high from the street (we were on the sixth floor) it was quiet and we got a good night's sleep.

We stay there for one night one in Aug-13. The location is great.
The service also very good. They let us into the room already at 1pm even in the check in time is from 4pm. The lift is secure, you have to swipe your card. There room was big and also the beds were big and very comfortable. The room also had a very good lightning, a very rare thing in hotels were lights are usually dim. The place had a lovely pool and a spa. The only thing which was missing was a fridge in a room.

The hotel is in a good loctian within Calgary. The rooms have a good size and are clean. The hotel has a swimmingpool which is already somw years old and the whirlpool doesn't work properly anymore but still is ok. The people at the reception are very helpful and nice. A good hotel in Calgary.

Nice hotel, location is very good, the staff is very friendly, the facility is ok. There is just one thing, the lady behind the bar was not so friendly and loved to talk all the times with friends. Everything else was just great.

Stayed there fe 2 nights. Girl on reception Check in was terrible, just gave us the keys cards and that was it, didn't tell us about lifts, breakfast, or anything!!!
Pool was ok but a little small, but it was a city hotel, so was a bonus that it had one.
Room was ok.
Possible stay again if in Calgary???

This was choosen because it was supposed to be the meeting place of the group I'd join next day. When I arrived late, I just took the room, which looked old because of all the dark brown in the furniture. Bathroom also looked not too modern, but was o.k. At night several times very loud 'other guests' disturbed sleep-not the hotel's fault.Airconditioning worked rather loudly. Next morning when opening the curtains, i saw only a concrete roof, no other views. The staff was friendly in letting my luggage stay in a closed room, even gave a tag for it. Helped plan the day, as it was the last day of the Stampede. But in all, this was the most expensive room I've ever had in a hotel, and definitely not the best- very overpriced, and not worth the price I paid.
The location is right next to a station of the tramway, which is free in the centre,

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view, I'm sure there must be some.
