Well, you will enjoy more than sporting action as there is always a festival, show or event going on in the city.

Skating action is always available at WEM and lacrosse hockey is popular at the St. Albert.
Why Choose a Sports Team Hotel
While there are hundreds of world class facilities in the city, it is important to use one that specializes in sports team accommodation packages. Such as transportation for easy accessibility to reach the venues on time. What’s more, you will get great group rates and the finest rooms available. The food is also prepared with health and fitness in mind. In essence, you enjoy tailored-services to suit your specific needs. The best part of it is the invaluable local information the staff has in case you want to explore the area.
How to Find the Best Sports Hotel
Now that you appreciate the importance of using custom accommodation, how do you identify the best facility? Here are some few ideas:
Location is paramount when choosing a place to stay. If you are playing at the Commonwealth Stadium, make sure you find an establishment nearby. It is important to find an easily accessible facility where your team will not have difficulties getting to your venue. More importantly, choose a place where the group can easily access the best attractions including WEM, North Saskatchewan River Valley and Whyte Avenue for art and cultural events among others.
Unlike ordinary guests, you need more space because of the gear you will be carrying. Make sure you assess the space and ensure everyone will be comfortable throughout the stay. When making accommodation arrangements, check the room options available and discuss them with the group.
Hotels can be expensive and one way of saving is to stay in the same place as a group in order to enjoy better rates. Compare the rates from different establishments and find the most affordable package.
When travelling as a group, you are more vulnerable to theft and the hotel management must guarantee your safety. Ask if there are extra security measures in place to protect guests and their belongings.
Go for it; the city has so much to offer and it all starts by choosing the right place to stay.
