Loved to just walk the halls in the Core, but got no shopping done. Felt way more comfortable going to the Chinook Centre. It is a nice atmosphere for a stroll.

Visited Calgary and HAD to go shopping. The Core was within walking distance of the hotel so off i went. This is an awsome mall visually, stories high, full of many many high end stores, I enjoyed myself here. Liked all the stores I visited BUT I must give credit to the wonderful anchor store, Hudson's Bay company for fun... More

Popped in mid afternoon on Saturday and found the Core mall pretty quiet. Not sure if it was the economy, the day or both. I suspect that it is much busier on weekdays as it's surrounded by office towers. Much appreciated the free parking 3 hours I believe on weekends.

The mall is beautiful and the ceiling which not only is amazing provides ample natural lighting. The linear design allows you to walk all the stores without missing any. At some points it also enables you to access the Plus Fifteen Skywalk. Nice way to spend a few hours.

Great mall to visit! Three floors tall with food court on forth floor. The gardens on the fourth floor were closed for construction. From a distance looked like they would have been great to see. Mall is three blocks long with sky bridges. Hudson Bay Dept. Store is an anchor. Has high end shops and a variety of shops.

It's a rather great idea to have shopping centres interconnected to convert them into a 'mall'. This place is very easily accessible by public transit.

It was recommended to us that Stephen Avenue would be a great evening walk. Very true if you want to walk from bar to bar--happy hour was very happy. But we were shocked that the Core would close so early. I guess Calgary business people do their shopping during their lunch break.

Came across this whilst in Calgary centre. The building has an impressive curved glass roof, and looks very elegant inside. As well as the obligatory food court, it also hosts the Devonian Gardens, a large indoor botanic gardens on the top floor of the mall. On the downside, the shops are still the same bland old chains you'd see in... More

The place is really awesome and has so many options for everything. Easily accessible by C-Train and right in the heart of Downtown. Must see place !
