“Central Location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 October 2011

This was the first & final hotel that my wife & myself stayed at during a three week tour of Canada. The premises are about 30 to minutes from the airport. There is an excellent airport shuttle service recommended by the hotel, that we used on three occasions at a cost of $15 each per trip. As mentioned in other reviews the hotel rooms have a 'tired' appearance but remain functional. The tram route is adjacent to the hotel however, we walked to & from the city centre. It is worth noting that if the weather is cold or wet there are pedestrian walk ways running parallel with the main street. Simply put this is a busy central hotel incorporating a convention centre that provides a fast efficient service.

We usually stay at another local hotel because of it's proximity to the office, but if I have business travel anytime soon, I'll be heading to the Sandman. Hotel room was spacious and had good amenities. I appreciated the in room fridge and had a comfy bed. Even had a great view of the park across the street!

We stayed at the Sandman at the start and end of a three week holiday in Canada.A nice touch was that they gave us the same room each time. This may seem trivial but one that is really helpful when you are only staying one night. The check-in and check-out was quick and efficient; particularly welcomed as we had arrived just from the UK. If you choose not to have breakfast in the hotel there are several food outlets nearby. If I was holidaying in Calgary then the downtown location wouldn't be for me.Overall, this is a good no-fuss short-stay hotel.

Stayed for two nights in this hotel. Found it all just great. Perfect location for Downtown Calgary - perfect use of free trams. Very friendly. Didn't use the restaurant......but a Tim Hortons right over the street was excellent for breakfast.

We stayed at the Sandman Downtown Hotel in April 2011, we found the location in relation to down town Calgary was spot on, the trams stop outside & they are free within the zones. Cleanliness of the bedroom was great, it was my husband's birthday during our trip & the hotel upgraded our room to a corner room overlooking the city: Awesome. Thank you for a fabulous stay

Room Tip: Ask for a corner room on the top floor, gives excellent views of Calgary

My wife and I stayed here for one night prior to our flight home. Check in process and staff were pleasant enough but the room was basic and tired, although large and clean. The bathroom was equally tired but functional and clean. The saving grace for us regarding this hotel was the Moxies restaurant within the hotel - it was very convenient which was important as we were tired after a long day, but it also offered good quality and decent value meals.The other positives were a decent location in the city while only being 25 minutes from the airport, good free wi-fi, and safe underground parking for $5 a night. Overall though we would only use again for a short stay a a good price.
