3 Big Reasons To Stay At Four Points by Sheraton In Calgary West

The drive to Calgary, Alberta is a familiar trek for many Lower Mainlanders. It’s a gorgeous stretch of mountains and valleys with more lakes than you can count. There are so many places to stop along the way, whether it’s a hike in Hope to stretch those legs or a couple nights on a houseboat in Sicamous. But for your final destination in Calgary, we recommend a stay at Four Points by Sheraton Calgary West. Here’s why we think you should book there when you’re packing up your family to hit the road.

Location

After 10 hours of driving and possibly multiple days on the road, the last thing you want to do is drive through the entire city to get to your hotel. Situated in the North West corner of Calgary, Four Points by Sheraton Calgary West is literally right within city limits just off the highway from Banff. When you’re arriving or leaving, you can be assured you’ll be on your way in minutes.

The hotel is also located close to a grocery store which makes picking up those extra snacks or lunch ingredients really easy. Packing your own food for the day can make a trip more affordable, especially when carting around kids who require snacks ALL.THE.TIME. Easily access groceries and then store them in your room fridge for your convenience! Is preparing food for the day not your thing on vacation? Four Points by Sheraton Calgary West is also walking distance from some fast food chain restaurants so you can grab ‘n go on your way to a local hotspot – or perhaps a picnic at the park.

Because if you’re going to Calgary, you need to check out Bowness Park. It’s a gorgeous 30 hectares of greenspace situated on the Bow River just minutes from the hotel. Follow the river with a stroll along the walkway or enjoy some quiet time under the trees while your kids explore the playground equipment. There’s also plenty of space to throw the frisbee or kick the soccer ball around. With the hotel being so close, you can visit the park every day for that much-needed Nature break!

Amenities

If you’re hanging around at the hotel, there’s plenty to keep you happy. In particular, we recommend a daily dip in the pool – and if you like the thrill, slip down the waterslide! Guaranteed to be a hit with the kids! With the hot tub next to the pool and comfortable lounge chairs set up for you to enjoy, you can plan to spend a lot of time there and totally feel like you’re on a holiday.

You don’t even have to leave the hotel to eat with Avenue 16 Restaurant & Bar within the property. The generous portioned meals are delicious and well-priced. From the breakfast buffet to the night cap, they’ve got you covered. Learn more about how you can earn gift cards to their restaurant by making a green choice.

And really, would your holiday be complete without a trip to the spa? We don’t think so. Fortunately, the hotel boasts an oasis of peace and pampering at Peel Salon & Spa. Carve out some time to treat yourself to some serious relaxation.
