I spent 2 nights at Arts on a business trip. Great location in central Calgary, and pretty decent all in all. The room needed minor repairs (few things missing or broken here and there). The breakfast was terrible though.

We visited the Hotel Arts last night for a nice "staycation." Boy, were we underwhelmed. First off, we found something gross pressed between the pages of the room's info packet. The local television channels had no signal, and the bathroom was disgusting (see photos). I've been to a lot of hotels and that was the worst tub I've seen yet.... More

Pleasant staff, both on the phone to book the room and at location. The decor is amazing & I very much enjoyed the food at the Raw Bar. Price was right and central location perfect for staying downtown. Heater was a bit noisy, but overall I slept well and enjoyed my stay.

Stayed for a conference held at BMO Centre, the location was great. The Front Desk team was very helpful and accommodating. Had the tasty breakfast buffet at Yellow Door - the only thing I'd change about that experience was that the service team had a morning briefing meeting while the restaurant was open and so coffee service etc ground to...

This was my second time staying at the Hotel Arts for business. By far the highlight of the hotel is the unique artwork throughout the hotel. My favourite is the hallway ceiling light fixtures, which are different on every floor. Pros: - Artwork throughout the hotel is spectacular. - Helpful and friendly staff. - Decent room service menu, and the... More

Somehow a month ago I researched this hotel to be one of the best in Calgary and since discovered many have experienced the same. The staff are great and service oriented. Otherwise, the rooms are dark, dingy, there were pluming issues, damage/knicks and scratches everywhere, not great pillows, the heater rattled half the night and kept waking me up, really... More

Pros – Great location, staff is outstanding (and I truly mean that; everyone from front desk, bar staff, even to a maintenance person we encountered in the elevator – the service was impressive), Aveda shower products (so nice!), bed was really comfortable. Cons – Rooms; dark and darker from the lights to the walls to the curtains to the furniture.... More

We booked an event at Raw Bar, the bar associated with Hotel Arts, and booked a room the same night at Hotel Arts to avoid drinking and driving. Turned out that the ticketing service the bar used had made a mistake on the event date -- our tickets said Jan 30, actual event date Jan 31 -- hotel/bar did not... More

Was clean but loud and very dark. Room decor meant that with all lights on it was too dark to get dressed for a business meeting. Honestly couldn't find things in my suitcase or tell whether clothes were blue or black even in bathroom. Water in the shower was cold. Was on 8th floor , but I could hear people... More

Stayed in a 2 Queen bed suite for ~$100/night (prepaid) in Jan 2014. The room was quiet, clean, spacious, and comfortable. Was offered an upgrade to a 1 King suite but declined. Bathroom was large enough for two people to get ready in the morning. Pros: the size and quality of the room and in-room amenities, fitness centre, location in... More
