Management felt the need to lie and say we smoked in our room when we didn't!!!!!! This hotel and management (Mark) will do anything for an extra buck, and anything to screw you over. After years of supporting this hotel I will never use it again!!!!!!

I stay at the Hotel Arts when I am in Calgary on business as it is a great location and overall a really great hotel. The restaurants are phenomenal - I seriously cannot get enough of the pastries at the Yellow Door restaurant, and the cocktails at Raw Bar are amazing! Price wise it is really great- around the $160... More

I've stayed at some pretty swanky places (that charge swanky prices too) but this hotel was not only a very reasonable price for downtown Calgary it was refreshingly different, with it's funky but tasteful decor in the lobby and hallways and beautiful artwork adorning walls and ceiling! I visited this hotel twice in the past month, each time with the... More

I booked my daughter and I a room for a couple of nights in July. We had brought our small dog along as the hotel was listed as pet friendly. However, I ended up driving the dog home each day to kennel him there as I was informed that we couldn't leave the dog kennelled in the hotel room nor... More

First time staying in Calgary. Location was great. Room was upgraded. Decor is very modern. Bathroom lighting could be 100 times brighter. Room was very quiet. Bed was very comfortable. Asked for a mini fridge and one was brought up right away free of charge. Sunday afternoon pool party was fun with an awesome DJ.

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

Good afternoon and thank you for your candid review of Hotel Arts and your experience with us. I am glad to hear you enjoyed Yellow Door, that the staff was friendly and the rooms were clean. I am disappointed to hear about the annoyances, as I understand they add up, so for that I apologize and will be sure to... More
