Overnight with Canada's Great Hockey Teams from CDN$91/Night

Throughout the NHL season, families interested in a weekend hockey getaway can see their favorite Canadian teams while staying at one of the many properties offered through  The travel website belongs to Expedia and offers thousands of hotels around the world and a call center (800-224-6835), but of course, being Canadian, markets to local hockey fans who are in abundance.

That's where you can get in on some of their good deals, priced in Canadian dollars.  Here are their suggetions for value getaways:

In Vancouver, Rogers Arena is where the Vancouver Canucks call home.  Located just a short distance away from Rogers Arena, fans can call The Georgian Court Hotel home for the weekend.  This European-style hotel boasts 180 guestrooms with plenty of amenities that fans can enjoy.  Over the weekend, travelers can also go and explore the BC Sports Hall of Fame Museum that is short distance away from the hotel. Of course, the FTF Guide to Vancouver for Families has lots more suggestions for fun things to do in this beautiful city.  Room rates start at CDN$134 a night for a two-bedded double room.

The Scotiabank Saddledome, home of the Calgary Flames, is just a few minutes away from The Fairmont Palliser.  This four-star property, named after Captain John Palliser, is located in downtown Calgary where guests can not only stay in beautifully decorated rooms, but can take the skywalk from the hotel over to the Calgary Tower where they can enjoy views of the city. Calgary is a great jumping off point for exploring Banff National Park and the surrounding area in British Columbia. Double room rates start at CDN$149 a night.

Fans of the Edmonton Oilers are normally found cheering on their favorite players during games held at Rexall Place.  While in Edmonton, visitors can take in some of FTF's recommended Edmonton family attractions, and plan to stay at The Sutton Place Hotel. It's a very elegant place with sister hotels in Vancouver and elsewhere, where the 313 guestrooms with custom-made wood furnishings are bright and spacious.  The hotel is located next to the Edmonton City Centre mall and is also a short distance away from Rexall Place. A bit out of town is the wild Edmonton Mall, one of the world's largest, and a sight you will not want to miss.  Sutton Place double room rates start at as low as CDN$91 a night.
