Had the worst experience at Hotel Arts yesterday. Could not use the pool after spending a lot of money on a suite. No communication that you have to book your time at the pool. After waiting for hours and being treated very unprofessionally we ended up leaving the hotel. Would never come back, the hotel is ran by teenagers.

We had rented just a studio suited and when we checked in they told us they had bumped us up to a deluxe suite for no extra charge. I would certainly recommend this place if you plan to stay downtown Calgary.

Hotel Arts is a beautiful hotel in a great location. Stayed for two nights and found the staff, rooms, restaurants and service all fantastic. Breakfast at the Yellow Door Bistro was particularly memorable. I will definitely be back next time I'm in Calgary!

I absolutely loved everything about this hotel. Every staff member that helped us did a great job with wanting our stay to be excellent. Dana made sure that we had everything we needed and let us know it is their mission to make sure that we are comfortable with everything and that we had what we needed. Thank you!

It is an awesome experience here. No need to leave the building, except to find live music and dancing. An excellent neighborhood for walk-ability and friendly valets who will drive you to nearby venues!
