Very sneaky additions to my bill and poor customer service, had to pay for parking as well which is not clear when booking. Restaurant told us we could come in but said we had to eat within 40 minutes to eat and leave before reserved guests . I would have rather been openly told they were full and found somewhere else than deal with such an obnoxious comment.

We have been very busy with work and needed a quick getaway. We decided to try our first staycation instead of flying to California for the weekend. The hotel is nice. Food is awesome. What we wanted more than anything was to relax by the pool. It's not a huge pool but it's a pool and the temperature is in the high 20s. The POOL is PACKED for a party and not with hotel guests but with bros who come to drink, dance and check people out. That goes on all day from 11-5 on weekends in the summer. I'... Read more

Room was comfortable, food at Raw Bar was excellent. If you want a relaxing weekend away from the hustle and bustle of city living do NOT go to Hotel Arts. Both Saturday and Sunday feature a "pool party" from 11am - 5pm. The music itself is great and is curated by some excellent djs. The crowd on the other hand is made up of Alberta Bros standing around posturing, reliving that time they went to Vegas and got bottle service at Wet Bar.

Do not take room 224 as it is next to the gym and every morning you will hear and feel the banging of weights or the person running on the treadmill. If you have a lot of bags and are in this room they do not tell you there are stairs to get to this room and the trolley you used to get all your bags (we were getting married so we had a ton of stuff) cannot be taken all the way to your room. The shower heads seemed to have never been cleaned. Water comes out of areas it shouldn't which decreases ... Read more

Excellent accommodations and a great conference location. We upgraded to a slightly larger room and really appreciated the seating area for our four day stay. The balcony had a wonderful view of Calgary's downtown skyline - it was a treat to have fresh air! Our conference room was quite chilly but the facilities were excellent otherwise. Excellent dining at Yellow Door and some amazing restaurants within a short walk.

Yes the rooms were nice; we enjoyed the balcony and the extra large tub. Unfortunately our expectations were not even close to being met in your pool area or restaurant as you now call it. There were no loungers like in your photo so we were unable to lay in the sun and relax. When we wanted to order some food we were told that there is a $5 dining charge, needless to say we declined.

For $358 CAD / night, I expected better. Yes, the hotel was nice, the room spacious, the location was good for the Stampede (but we used our car anyway instead of walking because we had reserved parking included in the Parade Day Kick-Off Package), But I wouldn't stay there again for those prices. Didn't make use of the amenities because there was no time - wasted dollars. Yellow Door Bistro had good food and the portions were good too. The Chef's Choice selections were great.

Nice downtown location. Trendy hotel, nice amenities and property. Nice staff. Shower drain clogged and after reporting, it was not fixed, so waded in dirty water in shower - yuck.

The hotel is off of the main downtown area but close to the Saddledome and the Stampede grounds. The lobby and pool area are gorgeous. There are two highly rated restaurants in the hotel.

Little things are also neglected - like the towels could use an upgrade, only one glass in the room, chipped furniture, etc. But the hotel is secure, gym facilities are good and the beds... Read more

Hotel is nice and has swanky modern decor. Rooms are comfortable. Only issue is the basic rooms have loudest bathroom fan I've ever heard. You can't turn it off as it is connected to the light. It was very annoying after 2 days of this. I was told they plan to renovate those next year. But the rooms don't look like they need renovating at all. Just fix the fans.

I would recommend this hotel to any couple wanting a get away weekend in Calgary. The rooms are spacious and well appointed. The staff is excellent and the location is perfect. Our requests for room location and "birthday" recognition were met seamlessly. This is a sign of a well managed property.

We had a stay-cation at Hotel Arts this weekend and we were again impressed by the level of service, quality of food, thoughtful and inspiring decor of this gem of a hotel. Our trip was a luxurious and delicious respite from our daily grind. What a treat!

People: Friendly, quick service Rooms: Comfortable, good pillows (dual zone type 1/2 hard 1/2 soft), quiet, well furnished, upgraded appearance Location: Downtown location was convenient for my business purposes Parking: Great lot right beside hotel. They even let me keep the car there during my all day meeting Restaurant: Just had drinks but service was friendly and quick. Seems to be a model hangout.

If you are looking for a reasonable hotel close to the Stampede grounds and Saddledome, Hotel Arts should be considered. Easy walking distance to the grounds and neighbouring restaurants and bars as well. Friendly staff made our short stay enjoyable.

I have stayed with Hotel Arts many times, usually for girls weekends because of it's proximity to the Stampede grounds and walking downtown. It's a 15 min walk tops to Stephen Ave among many other walkable destinations and only 5 minutes to Cowboys, BMO, & the saddle dome. The hotel has an awesome sophisticated chic style. I have never stayed here in the summer to enjoy the pool but I am sure it is amazing. The room I had this stay around was a king suite and it was great - starting to show a li... Read more

My fiance and I decided to stay at the Hotel Arts to celebrate 10 years of being together. Check in was smooth, but the front end staff member that checked us in wasn't very welcoming. No info was given about were to find things. Room was lovely and clean. Comfortable. We opted to take advantage of the in-room spa services. Massages were OK. The therapists told us that the bill would be settled at check out. However upon returning to our room that night after having a lovely dinner out, we came... Read more

Expensive restaurant (60$ for soup of the day, 2 salads appetizers and dessert), Expensive parking 21-23$/day, Expensive room with no fridge or microwave, In-room service menu can't be read on TV (bad image quality) and restaurant staff don't know the in-room menu, Hassle with the key-card to take the elevator everytime, Asked 2 times for my invoice via e-mail still received nothing after 2 days. 25% humidity = bad sleep.

Hotel Arts used to have a reputation and price that matched its higher end funky boutique hotel image. Not anymore. Due in part because of Calgary's sluggish economy, I booked into Hotel Arts last night for only $119. I was thrilled. It wasn't long, however, that I realized that even at $119, it was too much compared to newer lower budget hotels. I was on the second floor. The view was non existent because lower half of the windows were frosted. The HVAC fan was one of the loudest I'... Read more

This is a very clean, quiet and friendly hotel. The staff are superb and the rooms are gorgeous. I would choose this hotel again. The food is tremendous. The Yellow Room is one of my favorites and I will go back.

We were attending an event at the Stampede grounds, the hotel is walking distance. The hotel is clean and trendy, with fantastic updates. Every time I stay here it gets better. There was no ambient noise, and the curtains were blackout dark. I highly recommend, for anyone needing a place to stay near stampede, or the east side of downtown for walking, and for anyone who has transportation, or willing to take a cab for a few miles.

We seriously can't say enough great things about Hotel Arts. We spend our anniversary and staycation and all the times we escape from our kids there. Everything is clean and beautiful. The staff is constantly going out of their way to go the extra mile and be as friendly as possible. We love the food, the everything. There's no better place in Calgary in my opinion.

Being in the service industry myself, I truly HATE writing a bad review. Boyfriend and I came to Calgary for a couples date night and decided to give Hotel Arts a try. Kind of a dingy room... but what takes the cake was finding panties.. yes.. someone's panties in our bed. Absolutely disgusting. Apparently mentioning it politely to the front desk doesn't get you anything but an "I'm sorry, that's not our cleaning standard"... uhhh I would hope not. A slummy motel would have a higher cleaning sta... Read more

I stayed at the Hotel Arts recently for a short business trip. Hotel is clean, staff is friendly and they have a good onsite amenities. Rooms have quality shampoo, conditioner and lotion available. So leave those behind when packing. You won't need them

Welcoming, attentive and friendly staff from arrival to departure. The large room and comfortable bed have made the Hotel Arts my choice hotel in Calgary. The Raw Bar and Yellow Door restaurants have excellent food and great ambiance and are within the hotel.

My stay at Hotel Arts met my needs. The location was perfect and worked well with my business meetings. The hotel lobby is beautiful and parking worked great. Everything I needed during my trip was within walking distance.
