Convenient location for city explorers.

While not in the heart of downtown Calgary, guests are impressed with the location of the hotel. The city centre’s main attractions are about 1.5 miles from the hotel, but guests point out that a stroll along the Bow River Pathway makes for a pleasant entryway into the city.

Not all guests enjoy a good night’s sleep at the boutique hotel. According to reports, rooms overlooking Memorial Drive – a busy road that passes through the city along the river – can be impacted by traffic noise. Light sleepers may wish to request a room away from the front of the hotel.
