The Hotel Arts Kensington is easy to find, within walking distance of downtown Calgary. It is the perfect place for your wedding if you're looking for something sophisticated without being uptight. The once bed and breakfast was built in 1999 by an award-winning architect and has since transformed into the European boutique hotel it is today. High ceilings, artistically decorated rooms, and picturesque views of the Bow River make it easy for any couple to choose the Hotel Arts Kensington to be the place where they start the journey forever!
