I'm not sure what sort of hotel the Arts wants to be. Probably attractive to the hip or hip wannabes ... so it won't attract me back. I was booked here for a night by a client for a meeting that would be nearby. When I got the confirmation, saying ... "You have booked our Basic King Room, a 255... More

Hotel Arts is getting to be my downtown hotel of choice. Because of proximity to the saddle dome you can make events in good time with no hassles. Staff are friendly and accommodating. Room was spacious and clean. Unfortunately, Duncan Li 's Raw bar was closed on this day, but will hit it next time. Will book again for sure.

I was very excited to see the hotel, the reviews were tantalizing. Upon our arrival we were greeted promptly, and the valet was quick and easy. For a cooperate function the facility has everything needed to offer an incredible experience and that's exactly what we received. I will be going back for personal trips. The location is incredible; close to... More

In the grand scheme of things the experience was great, the food was awesome and the hotel itself is very cool. The lobby, and hallways have some modern art which is inspirational, and ads a nice flavour to the ambience. The standard king room was appointed similarly with good lighting, comfortable bed / sheets, good size flat screen, a safe,... More

This is a very good location to attend events at the Stampede - a 10 minute walk at best. The beds were very comfortable. The bathroom could have been a little cleaner - there was a musty smell when we walked into the room. It was a smaller room on the second floor; comfortable enough for a good night's sleep.... More

I had out-of-town guests come for a weekend of shopping, and didn't have the room to host them at my house, so booked a room at Hotel Arts. The room was perfect; clean, updated, good size balcony over looking the pool, and nice bright bathroom - perfect for a few girls getting ready! The location was pretty good for what... More

Great location downtown Calgary. Beautiful decor inside, and the rooms are beautiful and very clean. This hotel also has balconies in the rooms so you can actually go outside and see the beautiful views. We really wanted to have a drink at the Raw Bar but the night we were there they had a private function and we weren't allowed... More

I stayed at the Hotel Arts while attending a conference. It labels itself as a Boutique Hotel and it delivers. I usually stay at properties in well-known chains as previous experiences from independent hotels have been less than acceptable, but Hotel Arts made me change my mind. Spaces are open and special, restaurants and bars are above the norm and... More

We had a large room with a lounge room etc . Good hotel , clean and well appointed . Can be a bit noisy and the rooms are quite warm ... Can't seem to cool them down . Don't get room 224 . It's right next to the gym and is quite noisy . All in all a good hotel

Spent 5 days at Hotel Arts on business. This was a great place to stay - quiet, but central. I had a luxury room, so newly renovated and very nice. We ate many meals there as well as part of the meeting and the food was really good. Breakfasts in the restaurant were varied and also good. The fitness area... More
