Sandman Hotel & Suites Calgary South
Ranked #54 of 110 Hotels in Calgary
Reviewed 4 February 2012

Stayed at the Sandman South from Feb 1-3 and booked the King/Kitchen suite (regular tub not the jacuzzi tub) for approx $170/night.
What a GREAT stay!!! Checking in was so easy and all the reservation clerks were so friendly!
The lobby looks like a show home suite and the facilities are incredibly clean!
My room was a perfect size, again very clean and comfortable. My kitchen had a stove top, microwave, small dishwasher and fridge. There was a set of dishes, pots and pan, and cutlery. They did have dishsoap, but no dishwasher soap or paper towel which would have helped a bit. (They are having a few issues with head office not providing the supplies they need since they are such a new hotel, and that's why they are short of these supplies.)
The living room had a nice sized flat screen TV and there was another flat screen in the bedroom as well.
The bed was very comfortable and the room had a walk through closet to the bathroom in it.
The location may seem a little far from the downtown area, but honestly, that's where I was working while I was in Calgary, and it only took me about 15 minutes to get downtown. It was great to be so close to so many restaraunts as well (Moxies, Denny's, Walmart, Ikea and LOTS of other shopping).
Overall, this was a fantastic stay and I will definately be staying there again when I am back in Calgary!
Thank you to all of the great employees at the Sandman for doing a fantastic job!!

We were at this hotel for a business meeting and the room and food for that was good. Our hotel room we upgraded to the family suite and it was great because it had a separate room that had bunkbeds for the kids! They loved that part! I would have preferred the king bed closer to the door instead of the bunk bed though!
There was a slight water trickling sound that could be heard all the time, but otherwise very quiet (even with the hotel booked with hockey teams). Our door looks like someone had it locked with the pull over bar and someone tried to get in. The door frame was damaged and hardly holding on. I left a note for housekeeping to fix this, as well as the squeaky bathroom door. Other than those things, the room was clean and very modern.
Lastly, we mostly like to stay at hotels with 'heated' pools for the kids to swim. Well, we went to get in and it was freezing! I went to ask at the main desk about getting it turned up in there, and she promptly paged maintenance to come have a look. A few minutes later, the maintenance man showed up, stuck a thermometer in the pool and said, yup it's 80. Well to me, 80 is barely a heated pool...especially when there is an exterior door within the pool area to the -15C outside! The hot tub was warm, definitely not hot. The kids did like that the pool changed colors.
Overall good stay, and nice to have Moxie's and Denny's connected to the hotel. Thanks.

Arrived at Calgary Airport on the first leg of our Archers trip through Canada. The airport itself had a stunning sculpture in the foyer of horses. We were met by our representative and taken by coach to the Sandman Hotel. Very comfortable rooms, a little old fashioned but we were only staying one night. The meal we had at the hotel that night was beautifully cooked and very reasonable.
The following morning we all boarded the coach en route to Banff. Our guide Linda Brown, took us on an impromtu trip of downtown Calgary taking in the Olympic medal site, Municipal Hall and being a Sunday Morning, it was very quiet so we were able to disembark and take lots of pictures. We then went on to the Calagary Stampede Park which was amazing, again we had plenty of time to take pictures. From there we went on to the Olympic Park and stopped for coffee. Seeing the Ski Jump that Eddie the Eagle won his acclaimed fame from was an added bonus. Once back on the coach, we headed for Banff and I will do a review of that hotel next. Our first sight of the rockies was breathtaking - wasn't sure my camera would stand up to all of the pictures I anticipated taking - Banff was an amazing place.

It's a new property located in the south east area of Calgary at Deerfoot Meadows complex where IKEA and Walmart Super Store areat walking distance from the hotel . The hotel has sufficient parking space. The rooms are spacious and clean. The Denny's 24 Hour Restaurant and Moxie's Classic Grill serve great food and drinks. The wifi was also good and very usable. The hotel offers a very peaceful and relaxing experince, though my reason to choose it was the good price it offered.

Room Tip: rooms to the east side may provide better view from the room.
