Ok... so my partner went to Calgary for one reason. We drove from Vancouver via Whistler, Kamloops, Jasper and Banff and need a place to get a cheap and direct flight to SFO. Calgary was that place.
We arrived in Calgary and noticed that there clearly wasn't a whole lot to do here. We made our way to the hotel and quickly checked our bags before returning our hire car to the airport.
We were given our key (earlier than check in time allowed which was much appreciated and at no extra charge). We were on the 16th floor (top floor and only thing above us was the pool and gym). We walked into the room and our jaws dropped! This room was huge! We had only booked a Standard 1 x King bed room and this was not what we were expecting. There were hallways in this room. The hotel room was so spacious, the bed was a true King bed and storage space was out of this world for a hotel. The bathroom was private, out of the way and gave plenty of room for two people.
The catch: there really isn't much to do in Calgary, but thats no fault of the hotel. Fortunately for us, the weekend we were there, the Calgary Marathon was being run, so that was a bit of fun to be part of the festivities. From the hotel, only a small walk away is the river. Go for a walk along the river tracks and relax. Calgary seems like a place you could relax. Coming from a city like Melbourne, Australia - Calgary is more like a country town. Go there and enjoy it for what it is.
