Calgary is a dynamic and vibrant city, offering everything that the leisure or business traveller could desire. Founded in 1875 at the junction of the Bow and Elbow rivers, nestled against the backdrop of the majestic Canadian Rockies, Calgary quickly grew into the vibrant centre of arts, sports, and history that it represents today. The city offers a staggering array of shopping areas, business opportunities, cultural venues, sports events, culinary delights and outdoor adventures. In Calgary, you get the best of both worlds: an exciting urban downtown with the myriad pleasures a bustling city offers, or the thrill of outdoor adventures like rafting, rock climbing, or dog sledding in the nearby Rockies. The Wingate by Wyndham Calgary Hotel is conveniently located in South Calgary, within walking distance of the Calgary C-train, which transports you to the pleasures of downtown Calgary in 25 minutes.
What to do in downtown Calgary?

Indulge all your senses with shops, nightclubs, and restaurants along the Stephen Avenue walk. Heading to downtown Calgary at night? Choose from innumerable restaurants, bars, movies and theatre.
