Make yourself at home in our hotels in Calgary, Alberta. Discover western Canada’s frontier past at the Glenbow Museum and the city’s rip-roaring present at the Calgary Stampede.
From our hotels, you can hop on the city’s convenient C-Train light rail transit system to navigate the city some locals still call “Cowtown.” From the top of Calgary Tower, you can look out over the city skyline and beyond to the glorious Rocky Mountains on the horizon. The collection at Glenbow Museum features works by western Canadian artists and artifacts from western Canada’s earliest cultures. It’s an easy drive from our hotels in Calgary to Canada Olympic Park, the sports complex built for the 1988 Winter Olympic Games in Calgary. Open year-round, the park is especially popular in winter with skiers, snowboarders, lugers and other winter-sports fans looking to test their skills on Olympic-caliber courses.
Book our hotels in Calgary in July for a thorough immersion in modern cowboy culture. For 10 days in mid-July, the world-famous Calgary Stampede takes over the city, offering rodeos, covered wagons, bucking broncos and a general carnival atmosphere. Outside the Stampede grounds, take advantage of one of the many free breakfast venues that pop up during the festivities. For year-round fun, head to the neighborhood hot spot for Calgary nightlife: the Red Mile, an 8-block radius southwest of downtown around 17th Avenue SW and 4th Street SW. It’s a prime location for casual dining and rollicking bar- and pub-hopping.
