The hotel us going through a major renovation so I will cut them some slack but I don't find it as good as it was. I visit Calgary 4 times a year roughly and usually stay at this property. Calgary hotels are fairly expensive in general. The hotel arts is typically 250/night. The rooms need an update. The on site... More

Was in the bridal party for a wedding at Hotel Arts so my partner and I stayed in one of the regular hotel rooms. The room was rather small with limited space to set up your suitcases and unpack. The bathroom is also good for only one person but our fancy glass door would not close to the bathroom and... More

A friend had done the research and reservation at the hotel. We were there for two nights. Valet is quick and courteous. The lobby is fun, funky modern with a view into the center space that surrounds the outdoor pool. We had room 240 which was a studio suite. Wifi is NOT free...total bummer. Nothing really amazing about the room... More

We live in Calgary but were getting married near Hotel Arts. We booked a King Luxury Suite for 2 nights for the convenience, despite the some of the review we saw on Trip Advisor. We have traveled a quite a bit and have stayed in higher end boutique style hotels before so expected a little bit more from this place.... More

Cool and funky hotel, with enjoyable art, very good bedding - altough it could do with closed duvet covers rather then the open-ended ones - and very friendly staff. Rooms are good, but standard for this sort of hotel and lacking a decent reading light and a full standing mirror. Really enjoyed the Aveda products in the bathroom. If you... More

Good morning and thank you for posting such a great review of our property and glad you enjoyed your stay. For future reference, quiet swimming hours for in-house guests are encouraged between 7am and 11am, and although our restaurant serves the poolside patio, our in-house guests have priority and can reserve tables to ensure a seat - with no requirements...

I love Hotel Arts. Even though I'm from Calgary, I've had opportunities to be in the rooms, bar & event rooms many times. The place is beautiful & modern. The rooms are comfortable and calming. The food is great and the drinks (while pricey, are unique and delicious). You'll notice during the summer months that many plastic surgery & tanning... More

I would not stay here again. The service was poor (although the staff was friendly). The location was good for downtown - although the additional fees are irritating. I travel to Calgary regularly and wanted to try out this place. I spent several hundred in the bar and restaurant during my stay. For the location and amenities this is not... More

I loved the king sized beds, allowed for starfish stretch sleeps! The pool is beautiful and so refreshing, there's also a great weight room and yoga on the weekends. I got a great room service breakfast, it was fast and exceeded expectations. The restaurant is really great too. I did hear that some of my colleagues got woken up by... More
