Ok, Calgarians...

I'm thinking about coming to Calgary for the auction and would need a fairly inexpensive ($70-100) hotel that's close to the auction. Suggestions?

Also, I'm planning on visiting;
- Gold's
- Riverfront
- Pisces
- Tanks Alot
- Chum's

Anything I've missed? How would you prioritize the ones I've listed (we may not have time to do them all)?

TIA!

edit: Toirtis, just saw your store info in the other thread...

How close? Walking distance, or like a 5 minute drive? 'Motel Village', a collection of 12 or so motels on the Trans Canada is just up the hill from the auction, and most of the motels are under $100/night:

Those are the best...if I had to prioritise, I would actually go with the order you put them in.

Fortunately, Riverfront, Pisces and Chums are all quite close together (one would leave Riverfront, head north on Edmonton Trail, about 10 blocks along is Chums, then headed North on Edmonton Trail again, about 36 blocks (sounds like a lot, but you can drive it in under 8 minutes) north is Pisces.

And, if you hit Gold's first, outside of rush hour, it takes about 10-12 minutes to go from Gold's to Riverfront along Memorial drive. If you start at Gol'd at 10am, you could be done all but Tanks Alot by 1pm.

Whereabouts are you coming in from?

So did the CAS meetings get moved to Sunday? Or am I reading the CALquarium wrong?

Wow, thanks for all the info, Toirtis. We'll be driving in from Edmonton, so that Motel Village sounds perfect. Depending on what time we manage to set out for Calgary, I'm hoping to hit Gold first, and then the other three all on Saturday...we'll see how it goes!
