Delta Calgary Airport Hotel
One of the Canadian Pacific (CP) Railway hotels in Calgary, Alberta, was the Chateau Calgary Airport. The hotel was opened in 1978 and today is better known as the Delta Calgary Airport, operated by the Delta Hotels chain. As its name implies, it provides lodging for air travellers.
The Canadian Pacific Railway came to Calgary and nearby Banff between 1882 and 1883 to service the influx of settlers into the region.
Today, the hotel is conveniently connected to the front entrance of Calgary Airport. It has a pool (with whirlpool!), fine dining, a breakfast buffet, and the YYC lounge where you can enjoy a relaxing evening of drinks. They also offer an in-room dining service.
As far as rooms go, they have several options. Their basic selection is the Pure Room at CAD 189 (£115) per night. They call it the Pure Room because it provides filtered air to cater to those with allergies.
Via Rail no longer operates a passenger service to Calgary, however the Rocky Mountaineer tourist train runs a service from Vancouver with stops in Banff, Calgary and Jasper. The station is not far from the airport, in the Calgary Tower, 115 9th Avenue Southeast.
Something to look out for in the future is a high-speed train that is planned to run between Edmonton and Calgary. The proposal has been submitted and the land has been purchased for the route.
