Why We Like It

This contemporary hotel overlooks Bow River and is less than 2 minutes walk away from the city centre. We love the way in which the choice of materials, subtle lighting and artwork hung throughout the building creates an intimate and peaceful ambience for guests; while at the same time, being situated in the lively and Kensington District, it is in easy proximity to fashion and designer stores, small bookshops, cafes and restaurants. With an award winning restaurant on site, the upscale dining features an intimate atmosphere and changing menu.
