Trendy and fun

Posted 11-Aug-2014
Decor throughout hotel was trendy and beautiful. All encounters with hotel staff were above and beyond. Room was very clean and loved the personal touches (make up remover) and an amazing roof style shower. The food delivered to my room was absolutely amazing!

Flawless!

Posted 6-Aug-2014
Our stay couldn't have been better! We chose Hotel Arts because of the easy walkable distance to a evening concert we planned to attend at the Saddledome. When we checked in, we were advised our king-sized-bed room that we had reserved through Expedia had been upgraded to a king suite, a very pleasant surprise. The suite was beautiful, gleaming with mirrors. As it happened it was pouring rain when we set out for the event but the kind gentleman in charge of valet parking lent us a couple of umbrellas. What a great way to start an evening, walking in the rain! All the staff were friendly and helpful, and I loved the art decor throughout the hotel, a visual delicacy free to enjoy.

Good downtown location. Rooms/halways too dark.

Posted 2-Aug-2014
Pros: Central location.
Cons: Lighting in room and hallways.
Location: Walk to everything downtown Calgary.
It is an okay hotel experience. Hotel under renovations so we certainly did not get the most from this hotel. Parking too expensive.

Awesome Hotel!

Posted 28-Jul-2014
I went on a spontaneous trip to Calgary for the first time and decided to stay at Hotel Arts, it was a great place to stay, outdoor pool and patio, right downtown and a 20 minute walk to almost everything (depeding how fast you walk). All in all it was a great place to stay.

Pleasant, modern hotel near downtown

Posted 27-Jul-2014
Pros: Artwork, pool, location, staff, valet parking, and food.
Cons: Booklets in room to tell you of all the hotel amenities and restaurants, fridges in rooms, bigger (or another) gym.
Location: Near downtown.
The staff were all friendly, helpful, and efficient. The outdoor pool is lovely, with poolside yoga, the gym is extremely tiny and minimal, and the blown glass lights everywhere were beautiful and artsy. The valet parking is only $10 more than self parking, and was definitely worth it! Room service was right on time (ordered breakfast the night before), and the food was awesome. Rooms do not come with fridges, so I believe you'd have to make a special request. I would definitely stay here again if there was another deal going on, but I'm not sure I would pay the full price quoted online. Lovely hotel!

Awful hotel. Poor service. Worse management

Posted 20-Jul-2014
Avoid this place at all costs. Over priced and very poorly managed. Not a place worth your money. Also rated very poorly on tripadvisor too.

Pool bar / restaurant was a highlight.

Posted 18-Jul-2014
Had a great time at the pool bar. The hotel exterior could use an upgrade, and free wireless should be added.

Nice hotel

Very good but the yellow door restaurant was way overpriced and average food.
