We travelled to Calgary for this year's Stampede and had a very enjoyable stay in the Sandman. We hadn't paid a fortune for the trip, so we weren't expecting the works but we were pleasantly suprised by the levels of service we recieved and standard of accomodation.
Our room was of a reasonable size, the bed was comfortable and facilities more than adequate. We were high up enough to escape street noise and on a clear day could see the glorious Rockies in the distance. The bathroom was small, but fine. There was no wardrobe but space to hang clothes and plenty of drawer space. Our room was by the elevator shaft, but this was NOT problematic in the slightest. we were not disturbed at all by any noise as I though we may be. The room was well maintained and serviced everyday, coffee\tea was replenished every day also.
The hotel had a small gym, swimming pool and hot tub - unfortunatley the hot tub was out of order during our stay. The changing facilities were a little basic and accessible from the swimming pool through the gym area only - a little embarrassing if the gym was full of people but not problematic.
Moxies Classic Grill is attached to the hotel and we used it every day for breakfast and one night for dinner. I only have excellent remarks to make about Moxies. Breakfast was superb, as was dinner. It is not the cheapest place to eat in Calgary but very good value for money. Staff were all friendly and helpful and service was fast. Most breakfast dishes came with a side of fresh fruit or potatoes and between us we must have tried every item (not in one sitting though!) and all were great.
All staff we met in the hotel were very friendly from the reception staff to the domestic staff. I would recommend the Sandman, it provides more than an adequate roof over your head. It's conveniently located by a C-Train station, close walking distance to the shops and other Calgary points of interest and we would recommend it. I'd like to add that before flying to Canada we stayed at the Hilton Manchester Airport where we were greeted with a small bedroom, extortionate cost for bar snacks, noise and a rather large bill at the end. The Sandman was considerably cheaper than this and I think we got so much more for our money.
