It's not the CN Tower, but nice

Stands out because it's red, and unlike the surrounding buildings. Makes for nice pictures and is easily accessible.

I was really excited about this venue as many had raved about it. The view was outstanding as you slowly revolve around to see the entire Calgary landscape. It was snowing so it was even more memorable. The service was superb with the attending staff checking regularly. They were courteous, attentive and polite. As an ex chef though I was... More

It's a nice way to see the city. Make sure that it's a nice day so that you can see the mountains. Even being overcast a it was today, it was still a good experience. Something you must see when in Calgary.

While this landmark is an impressive readily identifiable tourist icon, it fails to deliver in the restaurant department. It is notoriously expensive and the food falls fall short of expectations. Our advice would be to go for the views, but don't stay for the food.

It costs $18 (for adults) to go up. Once you're up there, you get a nice 360 degree view of Calgary. There's also a little glass area where you can challenge your fear of the heights. I would say that in every city it's suggested that you go up to one of these tall buildings. That said, I didn't think... More

The Calgary Tower is the place to go in downtown Calgary if you ran out of things to see or do. I went to the Calgary Tower on my first visit to Calgary. I was very impress by the views the tower offered... breathtaking view of the city and the Rocky Mountains in the background. Unfortunately the tower is not... More

this was a cool thing to see and the restaurant up there rotates so you get to see all the different views. The food was excellent too.

Our group of eight, one of which was from Europe, that had been in Calgary in 1988 and had seen and heard that there was a revolving restaurant and had it in his mind to go up there upon returning, he was not disappointed. Our timing was perfect at sunset blending into the nite sky. The pricing fair, food good,... More

Go to the top of the tower on a clear day, views of Calgary and the mountains are wonderful. Walk outside on the glass floor if you dare. Elevator fee is waived if you have been to Lunchbox Theater first. Food very good.
