Sandman Hotel & Suites Calgary South
Ranked #56 of 110 Hotels in Calgary
Reviewed July 24, 2011

We had a great stay at the new Sandman in Calgary South. Our trip plans changed at the last minute (literally just a few hours before check-in time) but the hotel staff were very helpful in sorting out a family room for us at such short notice :) It was very appreciated! The family room was cool with a bunkbed and beanbags and tv for the kids, a kitchenette in the middle (with supplies such as plates, microwave, fridge, sink, toaster, etc), and a private kingsize bedroom for us :) Everything was very clean. Thank you very much for helping us out when we changed plans to bring the kids with us. We will stay again! It was also the first night of the Calgary Stampede so we were greatful for the help on such a busy night!

We have given this hotel a couple tries, and it is indeed a great location. However, I doubt we will return as the king beds are unbelievably hard! We might give the queen beds a try and see if they are different mattresses, but the floor would be a better option than what we have experienced. We travel a lot, and are not bed snobs, but this is an issue at this hotel.

It is a very nice facility, great location and nice and clean rooms. Would be nice to have a larger Denny's menu and phone books in the room would be nice, as well.

Hopefully they will take these reviews into consideration, as we love the location, and stay in Calgary very often.......fingers crossed for a softer sleep option!

Room Tip: Ask for a soft mattress!

We're a family of four and originally booked an "Executive King Suite", only to discover that the sofa was not a sofa bed, leaving only a king bed for all of us. The clerk noticed this when we checked in, and offered us a family suite which had a king bed and bunk beds, at no additional charge. Free coffee in lobby in the morning. Close to major stores, Ikea, Costco, Superstore, Banana Republic, etc. New hotel built in August 2010. Pool not yet operational, but will be eventually. Two constructive feedback: 1) The large bean bags supposedly are for sitting on, but end up just cluttering the closet. Tried moving these "Fat Boys" to the upper shelf in the closets, but they wouldn't fit. So, they ended up on the closet floor which limited the storage space available for our personal belongings. Would recommend getting rid of them, especially since there is not that much space in the room to actually use them. Rather sit in chairs. 2) More luggage carts are required. We were not able to located a single luggage cart and had to make multiple trips to unload and load our bags. Made a mental note to look for carts, and each time we returned to the hotel, could still not find one. Getting more luggage carts is an inexpensive and easy fix and would increase the overall experience. Really comfortable beds. In summary, I would stay here again.

Hockey team stayed there, was very happy with the new hotel. Could have a few more towels in the rooms, with the girls taking showers between & after games, the standard towels were not enough, but I left a post it note on the mirror the second day requesting extra towels when housekeeping came through, and they left a few more. The bathroom floor tiles (by the baseboards) had buildup of dust/hair, don't think the floors are vacuumed or washed between guests, but beds and linens were very clean. It was nice to have 2 restaurants in the hotel, my daughter was mad because Denny's had no raspberry jam.... Moxies was very accommodating for our team meal (40+ people), a bit slow, but is to be expected with a large group. Front Desk staff was excellent, very nice and helpful. I would stay here again.

Unbelievably bad stay! We were never told that the building was still under construction and the fitness center wasn't open. The counter manager was so rude when I inquired about it and told me I could go stay somewhere else, they wouldn't charge me. I asked for my room to be cleaned in the morning while I was out and was told it would be done after all the check outs left. It wasn't cleaned until 3pm! Who wants a dirty room all day? I will never stay here again and advise you if you want a hassle free stay in Calgary find a different hotel.

Discussed issues with Guest Prior to guest checking out. Hotel under construction is indicated on our website, and discussed with all guests who call both hotel & central reservations system. Guest took tour of hotel prior to booking room, so they could see first hand hotel is still under construction. Guest stayed for 4 days, and seemed happy with comments from both front desk & manager & line staff who assisted guest with finding facilities in area.

Stayed here a few weeks ago. The hotel is super modern and clean. Staff excellent, and excellent location if you in for some shopping. Right near all the major shopping outlets and restaurants, specially once the Moxies restaurant opens in the spring. I stay in many hotels in Calgary and for the price that we paid, I wouldn't stay anywhere else. The only flaw I could see was the room service option from the Denny's. Very limited on options.

Do not expect to get warm or the correct order if you eat there. Plus any apology for any errors!
