Located in the heart of downtown Calgary, the Hyatt Regency is ideally located steps away from the pedestrian-friendly, historic Stephens Avenue Walk. Families can stroll the walkway and enjoy the many restaurants and shops. There are several onsite dining options, too. The CTrain is located just across the street for those looking for easy public transportation, and there are complimentary bicycles available to use, too. Calgary Stampede, the zoo and skiing and snowboarding are all a short drive away, as well.
The kids will love the hotel’s indoor pool and the adults will love to spend some time at the spa. The guestrooms feature plenty of USB ports and a drinking water filtration system. Pets are also welcome at the Hyatt so there is no need to leave any four-legged family members at home. The Hyatt Regency is an ideal place to stay when visiting Calgary with your family.

This is a great location with awesome staff. It's in the heart of downtown and only 25 minutes to the airport, easy access to the c-train. Close to the Stampede grounds and all the facilities there. It's quite and treats you like family.
The Hyatt is centrally located for business travel and provides all the amenities that you may require ( including pool, gym, sauna, on site restaurant and in room dining) but it is the staff that makes the experience special for me. Every person I dealt with was courteous and helpful and always had a smile and a kind word. I am a frequent guest and I am always addressed by name and a welcome smile.
The long indoor pool located on the 18th floor is surrounded by lounge chairs and floor-to-ceiling windows, offering excellent views of Calgary. The pool is open from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. and pool towels are provided. Kids will find pool noodles and other pool toys to splash with, and the adults will find a sauna and whirlpool to relax in. An outdoor sundeck can be found just outside the pool to enjoy on a warm summer day, and the fitness center is next to the pool. Bathrooms are located in the hallway by the pool and fitness center.
Ask the concierge about the complimentary bicycles available at the hotel. There are several trails situated nearby and a bike is the best way to explore the city.
