Kensington Riverside Inn, Calgary
Friendly staff, excellent restaurant
We only stayed 1 night on our way to the Canadian Rockies, but enjoyed our limited time there. Staff was exceptionally friendly. Rooms were spacious and clean. Dinner at the restaurant was one of our favorite meals on our 2 week vacation in Canada. Parking was cheaper accross the street in the garage than on site.

Handsome Boutique Hotel
Loved the room. It was large, beautifully decorated, had a fireplace and had a large bathroom. The hotel is near a fun nighttime area and the river walking trails.
Cynthia, us1 night romance trip
Kensington Riverside Inn, Calgary
A topnotch facility! Access is on a 1 way street, so a U-turn a block away is required. The room was amazing - luxury that is beyond impressive.

Great girl just outside of downtown
Definitely recommended. Just outside of downtown, but walkable or short cab ride. The hotel is small, but very nice. Clean and spacious rooms. Nice bar and restaurant onsite. The neighborhood is also very nice with restaurants, bars, and cafes. Will stay here in the future.
