To the point Here is my review of the Calgary Marriott Airport Terminal Hotel. Having a late arrival in Calgary before taking my flight the next day to Frankfurt, I opted for this hotel located directly in the airport.

Location of the Marriott Hotel

The Calgary Airport Marriott In-Terminal Hotel entrance is near the baggage claim area on the International/USA arrivals level (elevator leading directly to the lobby). However, the main entrance is opposite gate 13 at the international departure level.

Booking

For my reservation at the Calgary Airport Marriott In-Terminal Hotel, I chose to pay with cash using my HSBC World Elite® Mastercard® (6 points per dollar on travel) to take advantage of a promotion offered by Marriott Bonvoy only on nights paid in cash. Also, note that it is recommended to use the Marriott Bonvoy® American Express®* Card to pay for Marriott hotels. Still, I aim to earn HSBC points to experience first class on Singapore Airlines like Jean-Maximilien.

The night was $287 for a cancelable and refundable rate until the day before my arrival. However, I have found that the cost in points is usually between 20,000 and 30,000 Marriott Bonvoy points, depending on the dates. The use of points seems to be interesting for this hotel, but it is always recommended to compare the cash cost and the value of the points with Milesopedia tool.

Check-in

Before I arrived, I checked into the Marriott Bonvoy app and automatically got an upgrade to a slightly larger room with an airport view. A few hours before my arrival, I tried via chat to get a suite upgrade and was reminded that upgrades are ”subject to availability at the time of check-in”.

Upon arrival at the front desk, I was informed that I had been upgraded to a one-bedroom 2-piece suite and that my late-checkout request was confirmed. I was able to choose my welcome gift: 1,000 points or a $10 credit on food and drinks. Having arrived late in the evening, I chose the $10 credit for dinner at the hotel restaurant.
