Review: My Stay at Four Points Sheraton Calgary Airport in Calgary, Alberta

We stayed at the Four Points by Sheraton Calgary Airport twice.  2 nights. 2 meals. Zero major complaints.

I thought this was a good, clean, spacious hotel for the money.  I would stay here again and would recommend it to friends.

We used this hotel as a jumping point for this year’s Canadian Rockies national parks and Glacier National Park, Montana, USA adventure that took us through 5 awesome national parks in less than 2 weeks.

I choose to stay here because the Four Points by Sheraton Calgary Airport reviews I saw were very good.  Secondly, after a previous bad experience at a super-budget hotel last time we were in Calgary, I was willing (due to wife’s insistence) to pay a little more for a nicer hotel, but not for an outrageously priced one.

Considerations
First, as you can see from the picture of the view from the window, the view is kind of blah.  Not bad in any way, but it isn’t Jasper National Park either.

Second, the hotel is 17km from Calgary Airport YYC (View directions on Google Maps). Located at 2875 Sunridge Way Northeast, Four Points Sheraton Calgary Airport took us maybe 15 or 20 minutes to get there from Calgary Airport.  Not a big deal.

Seriously, a 20-minute drive is nothing after being in airports and airplanes for several hours.

The Good

We chose a basic room that had 2 comfortable beds.  I liked that there were 2 thick pillows and 2 thin pillows on each bed.  Our room was clean, modern and had a nice table and plenty of storage.  The desk had convenient power outlets for charging electronics. The A/C worked fine. There was a lounge chair by the window. The TV, fridge and microwave all looked nice (but I lacked time to use them).

Here’s a picture of our Four Points by Sheraton Calgary Airport room as we unpacked…pardon the mess!

Our bathroom was very clean, white and modern but the size seemed average.

The pool area and fitness room had everything:  large pool, jacuzzi, sauna, steam room, and plenty of modern fitness equipment.

Dining

The Four Points by Sheraton Calgary Airport has a restaurant called Ric’s Lounge and Grill. We ate there twice. Breakfast and dinner.

The breakfast menu had enough choices and also included a buffet option. We both had omelets for breakfast. They were kind of a build you own style from options on the menu. Good food and fast service. No complaints.

We also had an enjoyable dinner on the night before heading home via Calgary Airport. Knowing that Ric’s was a good place to eat made it easy to decide to return for dinner. So, instead of driving around Calgary looking for a restaurant, we could just eat here without leaving the building.  Again, good food and fast, friendly service.

Ric’s also has a large bar area. I could envision having dinner at the bar and then having a few cocktails. But alas I didn’t have time to try that experience. Maybe next time.

Conclusion

My impression was that this was a worthwhile place to stay based on the room, the facilities and the restaurant.  I have no regrets staying here and would return.
