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, Calgary
Great location
Great location and walkable to most of the downtown area restaurants and neighborhoods. WiFi was the best in any hotel I've ever stayed in.

Exceptional customer service
The hotel staff was amazing! We brought our dog with us and all the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. They were very accommodating to our furry family member.
A Traveler, us1 night family trip
Hotel Arts, Calgary
The front desk staff were friendly and helpful and overall the hotel was clean and well kept. The room was nice (decent bed, TV, etc.) but little things were not great (grungy power outlets and light switches, the furniture was chipped and tired, scaling and staining from water in the sink and tub). Hard to fault - the price point was not luxury but I had stayed here a number of years ago and remember how nice it was when it was fresh. However, only when I was in the middle of my shower in the morning did i discover the soap dispenser was empty. In addition, the room was cool (20 degrees according to the thermostat) and it never warmed up, even after I turned up the thermostat a bit. I can overlook the minor details but when I'm travelling on business with a very small carry on, I expect there to be soap... I will also say that it would be refreshing to see complimentary bottles of water - $5 bottles feel a bit insulting. I was afraid to make a cup of coffee for fear that a $5 charge would be waiting upon check out.
