    Re: walking. Not a chance, especially in the winter. In addition to the distance, there's a big ass hill to get up from Mission towards Marda loop as well. I'd just stay right near the kids, or on Macleod in a hotel like olivia says if you plan to only have a car part of the time.

    A hotel on Macleod Trail in the 42nd Ave SW area is an option as it is relatively easy to drive south on Macleod Trail to Glenmore Trail and then west to Crowchild Trail and then north on it to the 50th Ave exit that is essentially right on top of the 47th Ave/20th St residential area. I am not aware of any other hotels anywhere close to the Mount Royal/Marda Loop/Garrison Woods area.

    Grey Eagle Casino http://www.greyeagleresortandcasino.ca/ is close to Marda Loop....cheap as well and decent. Glenmore Park & Weaselhead Flats is right there for nice walking/jogging etc to help you forget you are stuck in Cowtown.

    OK UPDATE: spoke to daughter last night....apparently the area we'd want to be in -if we use airbnb or vrbo- would actually be ALTADORE not Marda Loop.....does that make any difference to above comments...
    (i'll have to get a map & actually have a look...)

    Probably not. Look at your map - Marda Loop is on the northern edge of Altador (33 Ave SW).
    Bring up the airbnb map, lots in the area from $82 to $206. Oh, I see your daughter's place listed (kidding)
    Have a good trip!

    Altadore and Marda loop are pretty close to each other, but I don't think necessarily an easy walk. Calgary is not great for getting around to visit without a vehicle. If you are in altadore or Marda loop, you are in the Car to go area. If you stay at the GRey Eagle, you pretty much will have to get a car.
    On a 'smart' device, please excuse autocorrect/when letters are missing.
