Nice hotel, walkable to Stephen walk. Easy to get to Stampede and Drumheller for the Royal Tyrell Museum. Friendly and helpful staff

Nice room. Everything seemed new. good security. You need your card key to use the elevator . Nice central location where you can walk to almost everything . Friendly staff, helpful . Self parking was $10 a night plus tax . Fairly reasonable . However, if you stay here you can walk to almost everything and don't really need a car . Shuttle from the airport was $15 Per person . It was very convenient in the 19 in the central part of the airport .

Hotel was very well maintained and stylish. It was located within walking distance to some fine restaurants and shopping. The parking was easy to use both outside and in the underground parking. Would highly recommend the hotel.

We stayed for 2 nights with our little kids. Location was great to get to Stampede. Staff was super friendly. And the Yellow Bistro is the cherry on top. Great for breakfast, drinks and dinner!

I have stayed at the hotel a couple of times. The hotel is nice, but the staff was great. The Front Desk person Taja was truly exceptional and is actually the reason I would stay at the Hotel Arts again.

We enjoyed our stay at Hotel Arts. We went for the Calgary Comics & Entertainment Expo, and this was a perfect location, allowing us to walk to & from the expo. The staff was great, and the rooms & common areas were very nicely decorated. Parking isn't included, but that's to be expected downtown. If you have to be downtown, this is a great option, and the rates are reasonable. If you are not headed downtown, there are better options in other areas of the city (bigger rooms, free parking, etc).

Likes this place a lot great staff. food in Resto is very good

Room was large, clean and the bed was very nice. Only wish the wifi was free. Note: the pool is in a fish bowl so you had better like showing off your stuff.

I had stayed when they first opened years ago and dreaded staying again, but things have improved. Pros: Staff are very good and well trained, room was nice but bath/shower hard to get in and out of you have mobility concerns, the small put adequate breakfast buffet was very nice. Cons: No business centre or free wifi. Wifi should be free as this days it is more than norm and considered a basic service in the room rate. No bottled water in rooms.

Hotel was in a good location, easy to access restaurants and bars and coffee shops. No problems with this stay, and easy to park the car in their covered parking for $10 per night (though there is uncovered public parking 1 block away for $5).

Rooms were not clean, room service took forever, staff wasn't that friendly , and the showers were the worst I have ever had due to the harsh water pressure. Overall, I wasn't happy and I wont be staying again .

Great service, location, food and overall experience.

This hotel is the perfect location for anyone that is going to Calgary for something downtown. You can walk everywhere that you would need to get to. This was a great location for getting to BMO centre. (about 10min walk) If we needed to get food, the Sunterra market was 5min away.

One night in Calgary at the end of a lovely 4 week holiday in Canada & what a treat to stay at the Arts Hotel. From checkin service was fantastic, friendly, efficient and helpful.Staff service was a highlight both at checkin and in Raw Bar - helpful, cheeful, friendly just great. The location suited perfectly with an easy walk into centre of town and access to CT train. The bonus upgrade topped it all off. Well done staff at the Arts Hotel!

The location of the hotel was very good-close to Telus Convention Center-restaurants-shops-walking distance. The bed was soooo uncomfortable. I woke up with back pain. Another thing, the hotel charges extra $150.00 "deposit" just in case you trash the hotel room..that is what the manager told me...that made me wonder???...mmmm. I wanted to pay cash but was told cash was not accepted ONLY CREDIT CARDS...interesting??? I noticed during my stay there are a lot of younger people...there are 3 bars around the hotel that is nice and hip, but it is not good when you want to sleep...a lot of socialization, noisy-car tires shrieking, yelling,etc. especially if you need to get up early. I will be picking a quieter and older environment next time.

Well, me and a very good friend, we decided that for her birthday, we would have a stay away from home. :) So we turned to Hotel Arts. And it is by far, the best decision I have made in a very long time. When I got there, the staff was courteous, I had a convenient early check in, which was very speedy as opposed to other hotel chains that I've stayed at. There was one blip throughout the night. But that was completely understandable (Amenities sent to the room that we did not qualify for, we returned it out of grace). The room was perfect, it was comfy, clean, very affordable. I would definitely choose this hotel chain again, based on how flexible the staff was. Very simple to get in, and out. :) I love this hotel chain. <3 The ONE downside, was that the walls were not completely sound proofed. So there was outside chatter entering the room. But it was nothing that we just ignored it.

We went to Calgary for the Stampede and left purchasing accommodation to the last minute. In a city full of overpriced hotels during Stampede, Hotel Arts was reasonably priced and only 3 blocks from the Stampede! The hotel lobby was really nice, the pool and surrounding bar/restaurant was nice too. The main complaint we had was our room stunk of smoke (like someone had just vacated the room after smoking a pack of cigarettes). When I requested another room, naturally they were full due to Stampede and instead, a cleaner dropped by with a can of air freshner to remove the smell - the air freshner helped for about 5 minutes and then it stunk again.

I have stayed at this hotel a number of times and have never been disapointed. The rooms are comfy and beds amazing. The bedding is luxurious, furnishings sleek, stylish and comfortable. The two restaurants / lounges in the hotel are excellent. I have rec'd great service, always exceptional food, lovely cocktails and a great atmosphere to top it off! The hotel is in a great location, very friendly staff, and is beautifully furnished with original art. There is no business centre although there is free wireless in the lobby & restaurants / lounges. Internet is $10.00 / day otherwise. This hotel is a great stay and I will continue to make it my place to relax & indulge when I'm in Calgary.
