The view was spectacular, service was excellent, food was average, particularily for the cost. It was a great night to be with friends though!

The Calgary Tower was the tallest Calgary# structure until several office buildings superceded it. The views of Calgary are still spectacular. A upper class revolving restaurant and an enclosed viewing deck are accessed by an elevator fron street level. Conveniently located in downtown Calgary the...More

Went there for supper, Enjoyed the views over the city at sunset. Food very good, considering the type of setting, and not too extortionate. You will always pay a premium for a setting such as this, so that's just the deal.

Went here for a visit to see Calgary from above, luckily it was a clear day and you could see for miles around. Also had lunch in the revolving restaurant which was pretty cheap and the food was nice. Well recommended for a visit

My wife and I visited this place one night in October 2018. Our entry tickets were included as part of our Rocky Mountaineer Tour. The night time view is probably not as good as the day time view.

Get the audio tour which comes with your admission and learn so much about Calgary. This was well worth it.

Great 360 view of Calgary but $18 a pop and $9 for children could be cheaper, maybe offer children in for free. The glass floor area was pretty cool!

Not cheap to get up the tower, but a nice few and a glass floor at the top. Once Calgary's tallest building, now dwarfed by others, but you have to do it once.

If you haven’t, you simply must. There’s a ton of amazing information about Calgary, the history of the tower and city and of course, incredible views!

Went up the Calgary Tower to have a look around. What a fantastic view. Couple of newer, taller building in the way in a couple of directions but all in all, a super great view. Can see for miles. Short trip up and down in...More

The closest parking to us is the Palliser parkade, which is attached to our building complex. Entrance to the parkade is off 10th avenue.
