Reserve a deluxe room
I've stayed at the Hotel Arts a number of times in a deluxe room and always been very satisfied. The beautiful lobby, spacious and tasteful rooms, perfect location and attentive staff all make it my number one choice in Calgary. However, my most recent visit was booked last minute and only standard rooms were available. While it was certainly clean and quiet, there was a considerable difference between it and the deluxe category both in terms of size and decor. It was like an entirely different hotel. The room had dark, drab decor only one bedside table. I also found it ironic that despite the hotel's name, my room did not have a single piece of artwork. That alone plus a lighter wallpaper would go a long way to improving the appeal. I'm ot sure I would stay here again unless I could stay in a deluxe category room.
