Hotel Overview

Sense of Place

Kensington Village District, just steps across the Peace Bridge from downtown Calgary.

Rooms at Hotel Arts Kensington

Each of the rooms in this cosy Inn offer something different; some feature small patios overlooking the hotel’s gardens, others are complete with floor-to-ceiling windows revealing gorgeous panoramas of Bow River Valley and the Calgary skyline in the distance.

Food & Drink

The hotel's Oxbow restaurant is highly praised by food and wine connoisseurs, specialising in seasonal ingredients from local producers. During the cooler months, dine in the adjoining Fireside room, while the summer patio is a picturesque spot for alfresco dining when the days turn warmer.
