Anyone who has ever caught an early morning flight would understand the struggle of waking up before dawn and fighting through traffic in order to get through security before departure. Wouldn’t it be nice to roll out of bed and walk out of your hotel, straight into the airport? You can do just that by staying at an in-terminal hotel! Earlier this month, Kev and I pampered ourselves with a stay at Calgary Airport Marriott In-Terminal Hotel en route to Toronto. This new vibrant stylish hotel offers modern luxury accommodations that helped us awaken refreshed, recharged and ready for the journey ahead!
Calgary’s Newest Hotel in the International Terminal
Just opened this September, Marriott In-Terminal Hotel is the only luxury hotel conveniently located within the Calgary Airport. Situated a few steps away from the new International Terminal, the hotel is less than 5 minutes from the lobby to the gates. With its convenient proximity to the terminals, Marriott really takes the stress out of travelling!
To make travel accommodation easier than ever, Marriott even has a mobile app for guests to check-in or check-out of the hotel room with ease
Guest Rooms Blend Elegance with Contemporary Comfort
The 318-room hotel boasts stylish modern decor and cutting-edge design features that are nature inspired. Each room features custom duvets, 49-inch tv, a mini-fridge, in-room safe, soundproof windows, and high speed Wi-Fi access. On top of that, many of the rooms offer dramatic views of the Calgary skyline, the Alberta Prairies and the Canadian Rocky Mountains!

For the utmost luxury experience, I highly recommended booking a room on the concierge-level, the top floor of the hotel. The room size and layout are impressive, with floor-to-ceiling windows wrapped around the entire room. You’ll even find a telescope inside the room for your viewing enjoyment! I could spot planes taking off as well as skyscrapers in downtown Calgary! The best part is having access to the exclusive M Club Lounge, where hot breakfast, hors d’oeuvres, snacks and refreshments are provided throughout the day.
Even if you’re not *really* traveling outside the city, this could be a great staycation idea for couples who want to scratch the itch!
Amenities to Help You Relax and Recharge
A few amenities are available for us to take advantage of at the hotel, including a fitness centre, indoor swimming pool, and on-site restaurant.
Could you imagine looking out to the tarmac and the city while working out? And, dispensable earphones and cool towels are at your disposal- what a nice touch!
Alternatively, take a swim and forget the day in the indoor pool, which is open daily from 6 am-10 pm!
Very rarely do I enjoy hotel food, but Yakima Social Kitchen and Bar blew my mind with their Calgary curated, globally inspired dishes. The sandwiches, especially braised & pulled elk sandwich, really highlighted the distinct, local flavours of Alberta! Pair them with the outstanding, handcrafted cocktails. Rose fizz and Saskatoon mule are our favourites. For something stronger, I’d suggest trying their smoked old fashioned.
Even if you’re not a hotel guest, you’re welcome to dine in at Yakima. The restaurant provides up to 4 hours of free valet parking!
Calgary Airport Marriott In-Terminal Hotel offered a truly enchanting experience with first-rate hospitality. The room was clean, spacious and well-equipped. The staff were wonderful and did their best to make our stay pleasant. I would confidently say that this has completely changed my perception of airport hotels!
Whether you are on a business or leisure trip, late flight arrival or early departure, Marriott In-Terminal Hotel is the perfect place to stay, dine and relax in Calgary!
