1. Re: area to stay for easy public transport calgary stampede

The best way to get to the Stampede by public transport is to find a hotel on the LRT line (our rapid transit system). Any downtown hotel is near the line, however they can be expensive. You could look at hotels on south Macleod Trail or near the University.

Perhaps you could provide the upper limit of how much you are willing to spend for a night's lodging and we could better give you options. In any event you will need to decide and book quickly as hotels get very full during the Stamped.

Hotel Arts and Wicked Hostels are both within walking distance of the Stampede Grounds. The Best Western Plus Calgary Centre Inn is a short walk from the 39th Avenue LRT (tram) platform, which is just one stop away from the Stampede grounds. An English Bed, Breakfast & Day Spa and Blackmore's B&B are both about 10 minutes from the Dalhousie LRT Station. Also in the northwest, all of the Motel Village/University hotels & motels are within a short distance of the Banff Trail LRT Station. That includes the new (fully renovated) Aloft Inn and Suites (opening March 27) and the newly-constructed Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites Calgary NW-Banff Trail (opening April 27), which will be the closest hotel to the Banff Trail station.
