Hotel Features.
A boutique hotel with an urban-chic motif, Hotel Arts showcases a rotating collection of modern art within its public spaces. The bright palette of the artwork coupled with the warmth of the lobby's fireplace envelope guests at check-in. Grey Art Deco furniture and a front desk with a stone façade complete the lobby's elegant look. Free WiFi is available in public areas. On the building's 2nd floor, fitness-minded guests can work out in the hotel gym. For more dedicated athletes, access to nearby Talisman Centre can be arranged for a fee. With rattan chairs, cabanas, and large white umbrellas, the hotel's poolside area may trick guests into thinking they're not in Canada anymore. The Raw Bar offers an extensive wine list. A hot and cold breakfast buffet is served from 6:30 AM to 10 AM (surcharge). Yellow Door Bistro serves all 3 meals. Pets up to 30 pounds are permitted (surcharge). Guests arriving from the airport can take advantage of a roundtrip, 24 hour hotel shuttle that runs at scheduled times (surcharge).

Inside the 185 guestrooms, orchid plants extend vertically from the wall alongside 42-inch flat-screen televisions. Free WiFi is available. Ebony-colored wood furnishings round out the décor. Private bathrooms are accented by Carrera marble and include Aveda bath products and bathrobes. Microwaves are available on request.

Hotel Arts
Good Hotel close to Downtown Attractions
Stayed here twice, both times at a reasonable cost. I just had the basic Queen and the room was comfortable and clean. The $15 buffet breakfast was limited, but very good. The hotel is located close to the Calgary Tower and therefore is close to lots of downtown restaurants, shops etc. The hotel offer secure parking at $21 a night, but it's free to park opposite on the road between 6pm and 9am, after that you need to pay for up to a maximum of 3 hours. Would stay there again.

Short stay Calgary
Nice hotel. Stylish rooms, room and public areas, friendly and efficient staff. Very comfy beds! Minor criticism- no info / alert that pool area closed and no room literature other than restaurant menus. Otherwise excellent and would recommend.

Great hotel, shame about Calgary
Hotel Arts is a great hotel. It has been beautifully done inside and is very quirky. The rooms are large and come with everything you need, including a large bathroom with a great shower. The staff are friendly and everything about the hotel is just as you would like. It is just a shame about the location of it being in Calgary.

Hotel Arts
Great location. Modern hotel with contemporary renovations. Great bar and restaurant. Spacious rooms with lots of storage and comfortable beds. Service was attentive and even has a text messaging service to check in on your stay. Very reasonable rates for a more upscale stay and right downtown close to everything.

It was a great stay. They upgraded us to a bigger room. The only thing that bothered me was that I didnt get the king bed I had booked.
