The cowboy capital

For many, Calgary is the gateway to the dazzling Canadian Rockies, but for those in the know, this cowboy city sparkles with its own gems. From its oil and cattle roots, Calgary has transformed into a cosmopolitan city simply bursting with attractions, culture and world-class accommodation.

Sightsee with ease from a vast choice of downtown hotels. Whether your budget is tight or you’re willing to splurge, downtown is the perfect launch pad for city activities. Scale the heights of Calgary Tower and return to a lavish abode at the Fairmont Palliser Hotel, meander Stephen Avenue Walk within a hop, skip and a jump of your base at the Holiday Inn, and take in the sweeping city views from the Calgary Marriot.

The Beltline nightlife

As the sun sets, 17th Avenue in The Beltline gears up for a long night of revelry and merriment. This bustling street, nicknamed the ‘Red Mile’ during the 2004 hockey playoffs, is flanked with an endless number of shopping, restaurants, bars and nightclubs. If you come to Calgary for the nightlife, this is place to stay.

Best Western Plus and the Ramada Calgary are fantastic mid-range options, offering comfort and convenience at reasonable prices. Alternatively, upmarket Ovation by O and Nuvo Hotel Suites are just the ticket for some extra space to spread out in after a big night on the town.

An affordable base during the Stampede

In July, Calgary springs to life with its annual Stampede. This ten-day lollapalooza is jam-packed with exhibitions, rodeos and concerts showcasing the best of the west. With 700,000 revellers descending on Calgary, it’s best to have your accommodation organised early.

Venture a little further outside of the city’s heart for some more affordable options. Comfort Inn & Suites and Holiday Inn Calgary located along Macleod Trail SW are ideal for short or longer stays, and are just a short commute from the festival grounds.
