This is a hidden gem in the Kensington area. The rooms are spacious and have everything you need for a short visit to Calgary. The staff are kind and accommodating! It is beside the Bow river so you can talk beautiful walks along the path network beside the Bow or easily walk to the downtown core. Will be staying here again next time I visit Calgary.
