Will be flying into Calgary 6/23 & starting a tour of Canadian Rockies on 6/25. Won't arrive to 9pm coming from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, a long flight. We want to spend our time in downtown area before leaving on our tour. By the time we arrive on 6/23 we will be beat and thought about staying that night at hotel close to airport offering a shuttle from airport, hows the Sandman Airport? Next day we would head downtown to stay at a hotel close to everything for the ease of getting around (C-train too)and seeing the sites. Hoping not to spend a fortune, I was looking at the Five Calgary Downtown Suites or the Sandman Hotel Calgary City Centre, are these decent hotels (clean). How far, how much is a cab from airport to downtown? Any suggestions, opinions, we are not familar with the area at all.
