The rooms are very comfy, the neighbourhood is fun and the staff are the most helpful I have experienced in a long time! The receptionist was incredibly helpful and patient with helping us foreigners organise our onward plans. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel.

Good morning Latim63,
From our location it is very easy to walk downtown. You can access the downtown core via the 10th street Bridge, or the Calatrava Peace Bridge which is accessible from the pedestrian and bike pathway along the Bow River. The Kensington Riverside Inn is also close to the Calgary C-train line, which is a light rail system that you may travel on into the downtown.
Thank you for your question and should you have any further inquiries about the Inn and surrounding area, please do not hesitate to contact us directly at 403-228-4442.

Underground, heated parking was $15 for the night. After pulling into the garage and parking, we were greeted with waters and an offer to carry our bags. For us, the secure heated parking was worth the $15.
