Owner description: Located 191 metres above the downtown core, the Calgary Tower offers the best view in the city and is a must-see on any visitor's itinerary. On the Observation Deck you'll experience a spectacular 360° view of the bustling city, the majestic Rocky Mountains, the foothills, and the prairies.

Food is okay at the top....not amazing but just okay. If you go up make sure the sky is clear, a bit of a letdown if it is cloudy. Standing on the glass platform is something everyone should do. Free trip up if you book at the restaurant.

There's no better way to look out over the city, night or day. Only complaint, the interior lighting on the observation deck was so bright it made it hard to see and photograph through the windows. Most of my pictures came out okay, but the was a lot of reflection off the glass.

Fun Place to go! Not a good place for taking pictures anymore. Too many buildings blocking the view, taller than the tower. Plus incredible amount of internal lighting reflecting on the glass making it impossible to take a shot through the glass in the evening. If you want to take a skyline shot, go during the day.

The glass floor has not been repaired since inception I guess. You either see your feet or scratches when you walk.

We recently visited the Calgary Tower in September 2013 from the observation deck you get an amazing view of Calgary. There are lots of photo opportunities so don't forget your camera.
