I stayed in the King Suite and it was well appointed, but the design was terrible. I just can't understand after going through such a large renovation how the room designs were done with such wasted space. There was a very large space wasted in front of the closet with a stub wall that served no purpose at all. Complete... More

Thank you so much for your candid review of your most recent stays in our Luxury Suites. Although we did complete a $7M renovation last year, we did not change the original layout of our rooms, including our suites, but instead, worked with the existing architecture. That being said, there is no excuse for poor maintenance and as such, we... More

All aspects of the hotel are amazing. The vibe was fantastic and the food was outstanding. The decor was beautiful and ultra clean. Location was great, steps away from everything. We will definitely stay here again!

Very convenient to walk to the Saddledome. Close proximity to a variety of pubs and restaurants. Decor was well chosen. We would recommend an upgrade from the standard king room. Friendly staff was very much appreciated.

The hotel is located in downtown Calgary and was handy to where I was working. It has recently completed a CAD7 million overhaul and the decor is very art decore. As with many North American hotels Hotel Arts seems to miss some of the basic requirements of the European traveller. Reception was efficient although it was pointed out that I... More

Great Hotel, very clean, Staff are very freindly, restaturants are outstanding, and good access to Downtown. Even heated underground parking, though a little bit of work to find as it is behind the Hotel, on the nex avenue, it would be the only lowlight, and not enough to dampen an Excellent stay.

My friend and I stayed at the hotel arts for a night at a concert. The room was a nice size and had a lovely large bathroom. They also had Aveda supplies in the bathroom which is fabulous. The housecoats were plush and lovely. We also had a balcony! You have to ask for one, I suggest you do. We... More

Good morning and thank you for taking the time to provide us with your feedback. Word-of-mouth such as this is still the best form of advertising, and I know other travelers take great stock in their fellow travelers reviews. In order to ensure we remain competitive within the downtown market, we frequently conduct audits of our parking prices. We will... More

This was the second time that I have stayed at Hotel Arts. The first time we booked a room with two double beds, it was terrible!! The room was so small with no lighting, very small bathroom- nothing special. The most recent time we booked the same type of room and it was crazy how much better it was. I... More

We stayed, last minute, at the Arts Hotel in Calgary in a large room on the 11th floor. The Arts Hotel is situated just outside the downtown area and walking into town felt slightly edgy. Our room was big and spacious but I just had the feeling they focused on form more than function. They had a very fancy mirror... More

An excellent choice for the stampede. Its gust walking distance from the saddle dome gates We loved it. Very classy the only criticism I had was the restaurant. The night we went it was lame. My steak was terrible. The wine was oky but my steak was over cooked and way over salted. I should have sent it back but... More

My husband and I had a great one night stay at the Hotel Arts. The hotel was clean, the room was spacious and the bed was comfortable. We ordered room service for dinner and found the food to be great and the prices average. As we were there for business and our meeting was close by we didn't have time... More
