Reviews Summary
This summary was created by AI, based on recent reviews.
Powered by AI
The Sandman Signature Calgary Downtown Hotel garners appreciation for its tranquil atmosphere, with guest accolades highlighting the spotless and contemporary rooms, as well as the hospitable staff. Nestled conveniently close to dining, transit, and attractions like Stampede Park, the hotel's location receives high marks, though not without a solitary dissenting voice. While the cleanliness and helpful service, with commendations for staff members such as Kateryna, are frequently lauded, some guests have mentioned occasional issues with Wi-Fi and dated air conditioning. The hotel's value proposition receives a mixed reception, balancing favorable parking rates against some minor discomforts.

We had large room on the 6th floor looking over the basketball courts and we had plenty of room for our large cases and it was clean. The room had a nice kitchenette area, the bathroom was very tight, but all functional. We didn’t need it, so generally left it off, but the air conditioning unit was loud. It was about a 15 minute walk to the main shopping area / bars / eateries, although if wet, or pushed for time the light railway outside was great and easy to use. You could hear the trains, so if a light sleeper may need to ask for a room at the back of the hotel. Staff all very helpful and friendly.

Hotel's Favourite
We were so happy with this hotel - it is CLEAN, rooms are immaculate, up-to-date and well maintained. Rooms have coffee machine provided, fridge, iron etc,. Front desk was great - helped us out to access business cetnre after we checked outl. Housekeeping was there in a couple of minutes. It's a bit of a hike to downtown but the walk was great. Only option for meals was Moxies restaurant. Loved this hotel and would highly recommend,

Check-in staff are friendly and informative. Our room was modern and clean and very peaceful. There are tea and coffee making facilities and a small fridge. The room was large enough for us to store our suitcases out of the way. There is a burger restaurant called Moxies attached to the hotel. If you want to go further afield, there is a train station in front of the hotel where you can ride downtown or cross the Bow River to an area called Kensington. Here, you will find a Safeway supermarket and a few restaurants.

A very clean, modern room, with plenty of space for the two of us & our 6 month old baby. The view over Calgary was spectacular & the on-site parking was extremely convenient & well priced. Room was spacious, the only downside was that the bathroom was a little on the smaller side.

A poor showing on two different nights stays.. First night - temporary air conditioning that didn’t work, no heating and a loose toilet. Second night- noisy air conditioning / heating unit, broken fridge and sink stopper.. Certainly has slide downhill. Recommend you check the room before checking in.

We stayed her w/ our Tour group for just 1 night, but the location was perfect for what we wanted. An easy walk to Peace Park, half a block from the light rail stop, and a casual 30 minute walk to Stephen Avenue (8th Ave SW) for dining. Quite room and a comfortable bed. The only negative is the number of homeless that are nearby, towards McDonalds and the Circle K.

We enjoyed our stay at Sandman Hotel. We were a big group, live band to performe a show in Calgary and the hotel staff were really accomodating. Specially Kateryna! She is an asset to this hotel, really undrestanding and professional. The rooms are really clean. Highly recommanded!

What a hell hole! We arrived for a one night stop on a Sunday afternoon. As we couldn’t get booked in straight away we went for a wander to get a sandwich. We came across several unsavoury characters so vowed to stay in that evening. We went to dinner at 5.30pm thank goodness we did as the restaurant, advertised as being open until 10pm was shutting at 7pm that evening ( no pre warning from reception given). We then asked reception for directions to a bar, we were given directions the other way we had ventured for lunch, a few of the bars in the area were also shut, again we felt unsafe and came back. We now have time to kill, no evidence of room service, the 2 people on reception constantly on the phone. Noisy aircon, poor location, don’t bother!

I wouldn’t stay here again. We had booked 1 night here after our tour of the Rockies (which were amazing) prior to our international flight home. I wished we hadn’t bothered. Whilst our room on the 9th floor was a good size, it overlooked the tram line and with trams stopping every two and a half minutes (yes, I did time them) during the peak hours, it was very noisy and the room even vibrated slightly. Add in the loud air conditioning, it made for a noisy, disturbed night with little sleep. We had planned on exploring Calgary but we didn’t feel safe when we went for a walk so returned to the safety of the hotel, only to be followed closely into the elevator by a vagrant who wanted us to use our room pass for him to access the accommodation floors. We didn’t agree to his request but it was an uncomfortable situation and I was worried he would follow us to our room or become aggressive. If you are a confident traveller, accustomed to city living who wants great transport links then this hotel may be for you. For me, I couldn’t wait to leave!
