Spacious room with gas fireplace was just what we needed. Kensington has so many food options it boggles the mind. Amazing view of the Calgary downtown skyline in front of the hotel. Within walking distance of the downtown core.

Underground, heated parking was $15 for the night. After pulling into the garage and parking, we were greeted with waters and an offer to carry our bags. For us, the secure heated parking was worth the $15.
