Not a terrible hotel, but also not a great one. While this hotel is in the city center, you have to walk at least 5-10 minutes to get to a decent restaurant or bar. Not bad in the summer, but in winter this can seem like an eternity. Rooms could use some updating but were overall clean and spacious. Amenities...

I booked three rooms this past weekend for my friends and I, was really impressed with the staff. Shelley the front desk agent was really kind and accommodating. The rooms could use some TLC it was pretty run down but the beds were clean which is most important. Some things like a broken wall, weird patches on the ceiling, peeling...

Sandman Hotel in downtown Calgary is an odd place. Nestled amongst the numerous oil company highrises along 7th Avenue SW, from the outside it gives the impression of conscious modernity. Moxie`s Bar and Grill, within the hotel building, is very popular with the up and coming young people; for the rest of us, it is dark and noisy, a sports...

Is away from the city centre I had trouble getting transport down town and then back again. Not somewhere I would stay again. Didn't have a comfy feel at all and when I asked for a kettle to make tea I was given a strange look and had the phone slammed down in my ear. The room was clean and...

Nice and clean hotel, but the beds and pillows are hard. I'd give it more stars, but having a comfy bed means a lot to me. Nice lobby, clean rooms and friendly staff. Walking distance to shopping and food.

The people were great the hotel, room and services were horrid. First, we checked in at about 7 pm and had to haul our luggage up to the lobby from the underground parkade - that costs $24.00 a night in addition to your room, so down a flight of stairs and then up two, and into the lobby where you...

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay. We are looking forward to a full renovation of the hotel and elevators beginning in the new year. Please accept my apologies for the frustration you experienced with the parkade elevator. I also have already followed up with our Executive Housekeeper regarding the missing amenities in your room - so...

Good position in the city center, it is to reach every destination Room heating is not working properly and outside it is -20 this is a real problem. Food in the restaurant is good, even if cappuccino is not available at breakfast. Service is too slow

Was VERY disappointed in my stay here. Probably won't return. The price to value of this hotel is not worth what they charge. Wall paper was peeling off the walls and bubbling. The box spring bed skirt was torn. The upholstery underneath the chair in the room was torn and hanging down. The tub spout was separated from the wall...
