Welcome to Calgary

Be part of the energy. Calgary is a destination like no other: a mix of dynamic big-city energy, cheerful western hospitality and wondrous natural beauty.

An urban centre surrounded on all sides by scenic Canadian vistas, Calgary’s diversity as a travel destination is its greatest strength. Wine, dine and take in the ballet, or rough it at a guest ranch in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. Or do all of that and more.

Booking your Travel

The Calgary International Airport (YYC) is Canada’s third-busiest airport. Getting here is no more than one stop from every major city in the world. Here are a few sample flight times:

  • Toronto – 3 hours 45 minutes
  • New York – 4 hours 50 minutes
  • Los Angeles – 3 hours

Once you’ve landed, Stampede Park is only 20 minutes from the airport, and there are plenty of taxicabs and sedans available.

Where to Stay

While most hotels in downtown Calgary are reasonably well located for visiting the Calgary Stampede  (just over 1km away or one station through LRT) while offering all the benefits of a central downtown location;

Whether you choose the attentive hospitality of Calgary Marriott Downtown (384 rooms), the elegance of Hyatt Regency Calgary (355 rooms), or the landmark prestige of The Fairmont Palliser (405 rooms), you’ll be minutes away from a great night’s sleep.
