Whether you gallop into town for the world-famous Calgary Stampede or need a stopover before hitting the slopes of Banff National Park, this Westin property fits the bill. Located in the heart of town, the hotel sparkles after a $35 million renovation refreshed everything from the 525 guestrooms to the onsite Keg Steakhouse and Bar. Extras include a rooftop indoor pool with a sauna and views of the Rockies, a full fitness center, plenty of ski storage and a Starbucks for powering up in the morning.
In the Area
This stretch of the Canadian Rockies is known for superior powder, and three top-notch resorts are located within Banff National Park: Mt. Norquay, Lake Louise Ski Area and Sunshine Village. Between the three resorts there’s almost 8,000 acres of skiable terrain and mountain peaks that are so epic the United Nations has declared the area a World Heritage site. Best of all, this northern latitude rocks one of the longest ski seasons in North America from mid-November until late May. If you’re sticking around town, check out the 360-degree views from the top of the 626-foot Calgary Tower. While you’re up there, have a bite at the tower-top restaurant SKY 360 — it does a full rotation every 45 minutes.
How to Get There
I stayed here for a month a year ago and have only gotten around to reviewing now.
Rooms are spacious and clean, service is quick, the room service menu is consistent and healthy, and pool/gym is convenient. The location is connected to the +15 and easy to access around Calgary. Highly recommend for the price - great job!
Right from the guys, in the cowboy hats at the Valet to the front desk check in, this hotel is outstanding.
Rooms are standard Westin style and always fresh and clean.
Love the gym and the pool and the easy access via the +15’s into the CBD.
Very well set up for the teams attending the 2018 - 2018 Mac's tournament. Beds were comfortable, rooms clean, centrally located. Went out of their way to feed the boys after arriving on a late flight Christmas night. They also provided a wheel chair for one of the kids that was injured. This was very appreciated. Would definitely stay here again.
Great downtown location with friendly and helpful staff. Rooms are clean, comfortable and spacious. Great to have composting for unused room service and other foods. Several good restaurants/bars in the hotel.
I stayed for 3 nights. I was in an upgraded tower room which was extremely comfortable and quiet. Amazing sleep.
Bed is comfortable, coffee maker and great work area. Only negative was wi fi would cut out on phone frequently. I also think that any hotel that wants to cater to women guests should have a shower cap in the room.
The gym was great. Nice pool, weight room and cardio equipment.
I ate at the Keg in the lobby and enjoyed the food.
Parking is conveniently located under the hotel.
I would stay here again without question.
