Sandman Hotel Calgary Airport
Ranked #73 of 110 Hotels in Calgary
Reviewed 5 April 2014

We stayed at the hotel for a single night in August 2013 after arriving late in the afternoon.
The hotel is fairly close to the airport, but constructions around still made for a 30min trip to/from the airport, so most down town hotels could have been reached in not much longer time.
Service was very nice, rooms were clean, limited choice breakfast is available from a restaurant.
In total: a good but only average airport hotel/motel.

This hotel is relatively close to the airport. It's currently about a 20 minute drive to the airport with the way construction is now. The rooms were very clean, comfortable, and modern - as were the bathrooms. The water pressure in the shower was phenomenal by the way!

However, there were a few issues….

The shuttle is on a first-come-first-served basis (i.e. at check-in), and only seats about 6-8 people, so it fills up fast. When we were there on a Sunday, it was running only every 45 minutes, and our first shuttle choice was already full.

The hotel also dings you for a lot of things. The shuttle ride is $5 per person and it costs extra if you want to leave your vehicle here.

The customer service was hit or miss, and we had a lot of discrepancies along the way. But I will say, when we returned from our trip I contacted Sandman directly. The hotel manager (and regional manager as well!) followed up with me about the shuttle, miscommunications regarding fees, etc. She was great to deal with and my issues were resolved to my satisfaction.

Long story short, it's a clean and comfortable hotel if you are looking to catch a flight - just leave plenty of time to get to the airport.

I had to arrange rooms for 21 people coming in for a sales meeting and Robyn and the rest of the hotel staff made everything SO EASY!! Great stay, great rooms and having a Moxie's only a short walk down the hallway is always a good thing. We will be back for sure!!

This hotel is very close to the airport. It is about a 15 minute drive to the airport. There is a ton of parking at this hotel. There is also a Moxie's restaurant attached to this hotel.

Front desk staff were helpful and friendly. Our room was extremely clean and nicely decorated. There is a fridge, microwave and a coffeemaker in the room. The bed and the pillows were very comfortable.

We have stayed here before and would definitely stay here again.

We choose this hotel because it had a Moxie's restaurant.
We stayed at the beginning and end of our holiday. The staff was friendly and helpful. There was a charge for the shuttle and a week of parking, but still reasonable compared to near hotels.
The rooms were comfortable and clean. Some wear and tear but nothing we couldn't live with. We could access Moxie's from inside , which we found convenient at -25 Celsius.

If you are in rush and wanna spend a night between your flight, it very clean, easy access hotel, everything designed for business stay, although it's sold building and now there is lots newer hotel around. Of course with higher price.
Comfortable beds and very quite, average bathroom, big TV, poor coffee, if you upgraded to suite it make ur stay much more pleasant.

This was decently convenient to the airport we used (calgary), and also not too far from the downtown area. Right off of major highways - driving into downtown was very quick and easy, as was getting back to the airport. The lobby looked modern/stylish/nice and we thought our room was clean, comfortable and spacious. person at front desk was friendly and helpful. Bathroom looked clean and tidy as well. We would stay here again if in the area. We also enjoyed a nice dip in the pool!
