“Go once.”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

I have been to Calgary tower 3 times in 18 years. It isn't the tallest building in the city. The view pretty good. I will admit I really like the glass floor. It is one of the better ones I have seen. You can actually see through the glass. Unlike at the CN tower where it is all cloudy.

“Time for a break!”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Great place to come and get away from the hustle and bustle downtown.... 360* views from this tower, and what a view it is! You must try to visit here at least twice a year!

“Great food, a little pricey”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

It's a great restaurant with wonderful service. We had a relaxing dinner and it was so interesting with the rotationing element - you could see all of Calgary - it gives you a great perspective.

“Keeps getting better”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

I'm happy they've improved the experience at Calgary Tower and now with Sky 360 you can check out the great views and then go for a nice dinner. For any of my out-of-town company it's a must-see

“Outdated”
Reviewed January 12, 2013

The tower is outdated, not an impressive landmark anymore. Elevators slow and restaurant overpriced.
