                The room decor was modern and cozy.

                Underground parking for guests was expensive and noise from traffic in morning woke me up quite early.

              • Single
                9.6

                Fully refurbished, great design hotel with a very good location just 2 blocks from the main shopping street. Comfortable bed, big plasma TV and quiet. 10 minutes to the Stampede fair grounds. Their french restaurant is very nice.

                Free Wifi could be included (CAD 12 per day)

              • Single
                4.2

                Staff being very polite and helpful.

                I booked the hotel Arts in Calgary thinking it was a part of the same hotel arts in Barcelona which of course is a very nice 4/5 star hotel. However I was shocked at the standards in the hotel, dirty bathroom, cracked ceiling, ripped and damaged chairs and furniture. I did point these things out and in all fairness was given a discount on my bill when checking out. At this point I was told that the hotel was infact nothing to do with the Hotel Arts in Barcelona, which I felt was very misleading and wrong to do. I had to move to the Marriot for the rest of my stay in Calgary.

              • Family with children
                5.8

                Staff were very pleasant and very willing to offer suggestions re things to do or places to eat. Raw Bar restaurant is nicely decorated, has great staff and a comprehensive menu including lots of meat items which I wouldn't guess from the name. Loved the pool and surrounding eating area.

                The glass door on the bathroom looked very stylish but offered no soundproofing at all. There are stairs that you need to carry your suitcase up and down on the way in from the parking garage as well as in the middle of the hallway on the way to your room. Studio room with 2 queens was very small.

              • Family with children
                8.2

                Staff very friendly, food good and rooms are big.

                Rooms lack light which is a common hotel problem but htese rooms are particularly dark. Hotel needs to be refurbished as it is looking a little old and run down.

              • Older travelers
                9.6

                The newly renovated facilities. The modern look. The raw evening bar.

                The hours for saint Germaine. There is no natural lighting in the morning raw bar.The tub in 1015 was old and small.

              • Single
                7.4

                Overall, a very pleasant hotel.

                The lighting in the room was poor. The houskeeping manager needs to look at the cleaning products that the staff use as they are damaging the bathroom taps due to abrasion.

                The pillows were too soft but after requesting new pillows they were great. Nothing was too much trouble

                Comfortable bed and functional furniture. Bathroom good. Hotel very clean generally.

                Wifi in room poor. Cable only worked. Toilet running continually. Attached restaurant ran out of almost everything.

              • Older travelers
                8.8

                Great location,friendly staff,good valet parking,excellent food in room service,interestingly different decor,comfortable bed,good sized room,excellent tv(but see below in adverse comments),very good shower.

                The artsy sink in the bathroom was too small for the powerful faucet and wet both my wife and I on separate occasions. There was no shaving/make up mirror. The heating system was extremely noisy but effective (it was -22c during our stay). The room lighting was too dim. The lovely wall mounted plasma tv was hobbled by a stretched low def picture(we could not alter the aspect ratio) and we were unable to get ppv movies due to severe picture distortion. The hotel service engineer responded very promptly , he was extremely pleasant but unable to fix the problem which originated at the media server ,not the tv itself .

              • Group of friends
                4.6

                I was with my best friend and we made the best of it. Even though we had terrible service.

                I felt that the some of the staff was rude. Mainly on the girl that I talked to on the phone that they charged me $18 for parking when it should have been $10 which she refunded me for. But she was extremely rude. Just cause of her I would never stay at your hotel again nor would I tell other people to stay there. I wanted to have a great hotel stay with my best friend and just from her it was ruined.

                Unbelieveable view. Also upon booking, I requested a top view and I got it all. loved how clean the rooms were etc.
