We chose the Inn for a romantic getaway for our Anniversary. It was the perfect choice for romance, rooms are beautiful and cozy with a fireplace. The service and attention to detail was exceptional. Had a special personal note and chocolates in our room when we arrived to congratulate us on our anniversary. We also ate at the Chef's Table... More

This hotel is very conveniently located in the Kensington area of Calgary. It is exceptionally clean and has very attentive service. If your room faces the main street, you'll have a view of the Bow River and the Calgary skyline. They have covered underground parking for $15/day, which is less than most major US cities would charge, and parking is... More

This property was a perfect overnight prior to heading into the mountains. Clean, modern and exquisitely decorated. The room had a cozy fireplace - perfect for our rainy arrival. The restaurant had a great, clean breakfast and the food was beautifully presented.

After spending a week in Banff and Lake Lousie, my partner and I spent our last night of our holiday in Calgary and stayed at a great boutique hotel not far from the center of the city. The hotel only has 19 rooms. Our room was elegantly appointed and spacious. It could easily qualify as a five star hotel. I... More

The hotel is in a great location along the river. Perfect walking distance to shops and restaurants. The rooms were clean and updated. All of the employees were very accommodating. And it is within a short cab ride to downtown.

In Calgary for the Stampede, we wanted to live away from the craziness of the crowd, so chose this small out-of-the-way inn. From the moment we arrived to our departure four days later, the staff never missed a beat. No request was met with anything but "yes" with enthusiasm. Everyone, from the front desk to the (excellent) restaurant to the... More

The facility looked very nice as we drove up, greeted when we drove in the underground parking. The room was elegant looking and spacious, but the fireplace didn't work, took awhile for hot water at the taps in the bathroom(Shower was good). Bathroom door rubbed when opening it. Room was very quiet given the busy roadway outside. The breakfast was... More

Excellent stay at this beautiful boutique hotel. Staff went out of their way to ensure we had great stay for our short visit. A lot better than staying at a hotel in the downtown core of Calgary. It's only a 15 minute walk from that area and right on the Calgary's trail/park system and the quaint Kensington village....

The bed was AMAZING! Lovely little Inn, close to everything. The bikes made this stay FANTASTIC. I can't wait to go back and I would recommend it to anyone coming to Calgary. I have stayed in a few hotels in this area and this was by far THE BEST!
