Calgary West Hotel Activities

Sandman Hotel Group features properties located within a rich mosaic of neighbourhoods and surrounding areas, each with a distinct, welcoming personality. We have compiled a list of useful information below to enhance your stay.


Not only is raspberry-infused beer delicious, it's one of the signature styles of Calgary's Wild Rose Brewery, a craft brewery which creates several unique handcrafted brews.

The brewery's Taproom serves up draught beer from 11:00 a.m. every day, along with market-fresh food from their kitchen. Stop by on Fridays at 4pm sharp when the brewers tap a different cask-conditioned brew which has been carefully “tweaked” for a distinctive taste experience.

Interested in seeing how it's all made? Call ahead and pre-book your spot on a brewery tour. All you need is a minimum of 10 people. Afterwards, kick back in the Taproom and enjoy some of the brews that you’ve just learned all about. 

Sightseeing Calgary West


Calgary lies at the intersection of the Trans-Canada Highway and the QE2 Highway, an hour east of the Rockies.

To navigate Calgary roadways, this is what you need to know: the city uses a numbered street system laid out on a grid. Numbered streets run north-south while avenues run east-west.

Once you've got the hang of the city, you often need only know the address and the quadrant (N.W., N.E., S.W. or S.E.) and you can leave your map in the glove box, point the car, and drive. (But beware in the suburbs where an array of winding boulevards and trails, crescents and closes will have you cracking open that map after all.)

In foul weather, check the road report before driving to your destination.
