There's nothing really special here, and obviously Calgary's skyline is now dominated by much taller structures than the Calgary Tower, but it does offer a great view of the city. Children love the glass flooring at the top of the tower. There's a restaurant too but from what I've heard it's awfully expensive. Not sure if it's like that anymore.... More

It is a nice experience to eat at the restaurant. Afterwards you can take a nice view of the city if there is a clear sky.

Although the tower has been surrounded by taller buildings since it was built, the fact that it rotates with a view of the city is still very nice. There is a portion of the floor that looks straight to the street as it is made of glass for those with a sense of bravery. The restaurant level offers fine dining... More

I had read so okay reviews but didn't know what to expect . Went for Sunday brunch in the fall- beautiful scenery and great to see all the fall colours. Not a huge selection but food was very tasty and almost everything on the menu was local . We ordered the donut mini platter to start- a little greasy, not... More

We visited the Calgary Tower to have lunch enjoying the views of the city. It is always amazing to see a city from above and for this the tower doesn't disappoint. The food at the restaurant was good as well - and the price point wasn't different than higher end restaurants in Calgary (however, the food isn't comparable to those... More

The top of the Calgary Tower is a great bird's eye view of the entire city. It's located smack in the center of downtown on 9th Avenue and Center Street beside the Fairmont Palliser Hotel. The revolving restaurant at the top of the tower completes one rotation in tne hour, where you can enjoy a changing panoramic city view. There... More

If you want a spectacular view of Calgary, this is a must. What I would suggest is pick a Sunday & do brunch in the restaurant. As you enjoy a delicious meal, the restaurant will make certain you don't miss any view as it slowly rotates. Make reservations & enjoy!

The admission for a ride to the observation tower is quite expensive - $15/adult. However, If you make a reservation to eat at the Sky 360 restaurant the elevator ride to the observation tower is included and a visit to the Calgary Tower becomes a great deal and outing. We usually take guests for lunch and the food is very... More
