Connection is Key to Convention Life

 

There are many perks to having your meeting or conference at the Calgary TELUS Convention Centre (CTCC). We are located in the heart of downtown which means we are close to just about everything! We have restaurants, spas, shopping, entertainment and accommodation all conveniently located within a 5 minute walk of the centre. One of the major advantages to hosting events at the centre is the direct access to hotels such as Calgary Marriott Downtown Hotel, Hyatt Regency Calgary, Le Germain, and Fairmont Palliser.

After touring each location, it is clear that staying in one of these hotels, not only gives you a place to lay your head down at night but also ensures you have an amazing home away from home experience.

Calgary Marriott Downtown Hotel underwent a complete renovation in 2015. The natural lighting and modern décor of the hotel transforms it into a vibrant and comfortable space.  Each room comes with beautiful simplistic artwork, views of the city and a +15 connection right to the CTCC.  For any whisky drinkers out there, Marriott’s One18 restaurant/bar, is known for having over 250 whisky’s on hand. Starbucks is also conveniently located on your way between the elevators and the centre, coincidence? We think not.

Whether it is with the exquisite décor of the Fairmont Palliser, which includes an exact replica of the Oval Office, or the Gold Lounge on the top floor with amazing views of the city, you are guaranteed to enjoy your stay in Calgary’s oldest hotel.  Their hotel lobby and restaurant is currently undergoing a major renovation to enhance each guests stay and should be completed by March, 2019.

If you’re a fan of local art, and have an appreciation for the history of the city’s architecture, the Hyatt Regency Calgary is the place for you.  The walls display artwork from local artists around Alberta and the building still has original architecture from 1919.  If you’re looking for a place to de-stress and revitalize, the Stillwater spa is a must.  With services ranging from massages to waxing to total body detox, it is the perfect stop in between meetings or at the end of a long day.

Although not connected through the +15, Le Germain is a boutique hotel directly across the street from the centre. It is home to one of Calgary’s top restaurants, Charcut Roasthouse, and has one of the most beautiful workout facilities located in the city. Enjoy the floor to ceiling windows of the lobby lounge as you unwind from a long day in conference and then rest your head in one of their contemporary style rooms.

Each of these hotels offer unique experiences, which can be enjoyed each time you’re in town. You really can’t make the wrong choice when staying within the Convention District!
