It is a funky independent hotel. The room was comfortable and everything was in great condition and clean. I didn't try the restaurant or bar but they looked great. Good location. I would stay again. Staff was great.

As the name suggests, Hotel Arts is about creativity. It is not a knockoff chain hotel, rather a unique one-of-a-kind delight in the heart of downtown Calgary. The recent renovations are spectacular. (The carpet should be in MOMA). Spacious, well-appointed rooms. Superb staff. Overall, it is extremely elegant and the off-season rates are surprising affordable for such an ideal location.... More

Try the short ribs! That evening a live band was playing at Raw Bar which was great however out room was on the second floor right above... More

Clean, decent location. I liked the convienant breakfast system - fill out a tag with order, hang it on the door knob before 0200 hrs and breakfast is delivered promptly in the 15 min interval you request - convenient for morning meetings. Can catch a shuttle to/from airport for $15, only needs to be booked 2 hrs in advance and... More

Stayed here for business and everything was exceptional. From the valet to room service, everything was was you expect from a top priced hotel in CALGARY. Maybe the only thing I could suggest would be a business centre with printing. Although when I asked about it they immediately offered to print any document I emailed to them for free.

Plus points: service - excellent, great location, great restaurant and bar - we had dinner and group drinks and the quality of food, drinks & service were all excellent. Pool & gym look good though we didn't use them this time. Minus points: no fridge in the room & only 1 robe. IT menus for room service & bill were... More

Stayed for two nights in one of the king bed rooms on the second floor. Staff said they were newly reno'd. I had previously stayed in Hotel Arts a year or two back, it was beautiful so my expectations were high. It's rare that a reno can make a place look worse than what it was pre-reno, but somehow it...

However this past weekend a bunch of us stayed there and I'm very happy with this property once again ... It's been newly renovated and the rooms are fantastic ... The staff were great... More

Bathroom very nice - shower very powerful and hot (in a good way) Arena is about 10 minute walk, Calgary tower about 7 minute walk.... More

I stayed in the Hotel Arts a few years ago and in the intervening time renovation has been going on and still was during my visit. I had a nice comfortable room and would stay again as it is conveniently located to the Stampede Convention Centre; maybe 5 minutes walk away.
