Scotiabank Saddledome is a multi-use indoor arena in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Located in Stampede Park in the southeast end of downtown Calgary, the Saddledome was built in 1983 to replace the Stampede Corral as the home of the Calgary Flames of the National Hockey League, and to host ice hockey and figure skating at the 1988 Winter Olympics.The facility also hosts concerts, conferences and other sporting championships, and events for the Calgary Exhibition and Stampede. It underwent a major renovation in 1994–95 and sold its naming rights, during which its original name of Olympic Saddledome was changed to Canadian Airlines Saddledome. The facility was given the name Pengrowth Saddledome in 2000, after Pengrowth Management Ltd. signed a ten-year agreement. It adopted its current name in October 2010 as Scotiabank signed on as title sponsor.The Saddledome is owned by the City of Calgary, who leases it to the Saddledome Foundation, a non-profit organization, to oversee its operation. Since 1996, it has been managed by the Flames. The Saddledome was damaged during the 2013 Alberta floods but was repaired and reopened in time for the 2013–14 NHL season.

    Fun place to go to watch hockey games! Good views from most seats. Decent food and drinks, but expensive. 4 dollars for a bottle of water is quite a bit

    The dome is a great place to be for hockey games, but that's about it. The building is very dated. It has poor sound properties for concerts, which usually means any band there just cranks the volume to 11. There's quite the hike from the train station if you're avoiding the parking gouge, and an even longer trip up the stairs if you're sitting press level. Beer is always ridiculously expensive and seems to go up by another 2 bucks every year. Beer tax doesn't increase the price of a beer that much, stop using it to rip off your customers.

    Everyone can tell you this is they're most favourite places on Earth! Even after the floods they did a great job to get back up in running! Great for concerts, sports, and conventions. As good as this arena is sadly Calgary needs a new arena

    Great place to see a hockey game! Like all similar venues, the cost for a family to go and also visit the concessions is a little steep.

    Still a building with a unique atmosphere. Has been well maintained by upgrades and improvements over the years. But shows it's age compared to other more modern buildings. In convenience, design and features.

Where to stay in Calgary

South of the river is where most of the action happens in Calgary, and that's where you'll find the best selection of places to stay. Downtown, the central neighborhood located on the river's southern bank offers the widest range of choices, with access to several of the city's major metro stations a big plus. For arts, nightlife, and quality of living, go to The Beltine, known for its cafes, restaurants, arts, and entertainment. If you're just visiting the city briefly but want access to onward transport links, choose accommodations located close to the city's international airport.
