Calgary has changed dramatically from its origins in the cattle industry to a modern big city, due to the oil boom in the 1960s – unquestionably putting Calgary on the map. Calgary pulses – with a youthful, entrepreneurial spirit due primarily to its burgeoning oil and gas industry, proceeds from which helped forge its downtown glass and steel cathedrals of commerce. But it’s not all about new money. You’ll find the "Heart of the New West" still respects its humble roots – most evident in the 10-day July whoop-up known as the Calgary Stampede.
Our Calgary hotels are situated in good locations for exploring the city’s attraction including: Glenbow Museum, the largest museum in Western Canada; Calgary Tower, with its panoramic views; Canada Olympic Park; skiing, snowboarding, bobsleigh and in summer, mountain biking; as well as Eau Claire Market where you’ll see galleries, boutiques, restaurants and a fresh food market . Or perhaps, you’d be interested in a unique activity – digging for dinosaur bones in the hills east of the city.
Book your Calgary hotel today and you’ll shortly be exploring this booming city!
