a week in calgary with a 20mth old


we previously visited calgary back in 2008 and are now visiting again but this time with our daughter who will be about 20mths. Can anyone recommend some child friendly accommodation? ideally we would probably stay in calgary for 4/5nights and banff or lake louise for 2 nights. We are also thinking of hiring a campervan instead but not sure if it would be a bit much so looking at all accommodation options.

Many Thanks

Renting a campervan to visit the Rockies is a great idea. But if you're planning to spend most of your time in Calgary, it won't work as well, because most of the Calgary-area campgrounds are right on the outer edges of the city. That means you will have to drive your campervan through a lot of Calgary traffic to get anywhere.

Sorry, can't think of any Calgary accommodations to suggest to you right now.

For hotels, I'd choose something near Eau Claire so that you can take the little one to the wading pool, or for a walk along the river in Prince's Island Park. Maybe the Sheraton or the Westin. The other option would be to rent a one bedroom condo so that you can put your daughter to sleep in the separate bedroom, which you can't do in a regular hotel room. VRBO has some one bedrooms for rent in the downtown area, or near 17th Ave SW. Have a good trip!
