Calgary's Most Romantic Boutique Hotel: The Kensington Riverside Inn

Kensington Riverside Inn, Calgary ABEntrance to the Kensington Riverside Inn, a great choice for a honeymoon in Calgary

Kensington Riverside Inn - consistently rated as one of Calgary's most romantic hotels, the Kensington Riverside Inn will appeal to those who appreciate the feel of a small boutique hotel. Rooms and suites here all come decked out with flat screen TV's, luxury bed linens, robes and slippers, and sparkling new soaker tubs. There's on-site dining at the Chefs Table Kitchen, which can also prepare a romantic picnic lunch for 2 to go along with the free bikes available for guests at the inn. We spent a night at the Kensington last September, and it's easily one of the nicest Alberta hotel rooms we've ever stayed in.

For special occasions like honeymoons or anniversary trips, the Kensington can arrange some in-room extras like a long-stemmed rose or scattered petals, or some luxury spa bath products to enjoy in the tub (they do weddings as well, just contact them for more info). And just around the corner from the hotel, all the quirky shops, cafes and restaurants in Kensington Village await. (1126 Memorial Dr NW, Calgary, AB  877-313-3733 www.kensingtonriversideinn.com)

Fairmont Hotel Palliser

Fairmont Hotel Palliser, Calgary

Fairmont Palliser Calgary - majestic and grand are some of the words that come to mind when describing the Palliser. They've probably hosted more weddings here than all other Calgary hotels combined, and this historic landmark's rooms and suites has been luxuriously updated as well. (133 9th Ave SW, Calgary  866-540-4477 www.fairmont.com/palliser-calgary)     

  • Other Couples Said: "Gorgeous Lobby"..."Like Sleeping on a Cloud "..."Short Walk to Everything"
  • Possible Drawbacks: Expensive valet parking - inquire about cheaper alternatives nearby.

Hotel Arts

Hotel Arts, Calgary

Hotel Arts - another boutique hotel choice in the downtown. The Arts also houses a bistro restaurant and a cocktail bar that get very good reviews. Wedding night accommodation? We vote their Jacuzzi suite with a 52-jet tub as one of Calgary's most romantic honeymoon suites. (119 12th Ave SW, Calgary  403-266-4611 www.hotelarts.ca

  • Other Couples Said: "Staff So Nice"..."Great Restaurants"..."Nice Blackout Curtains"
  • Possible Drawbacks: Rooms dimly lit, some quality control issues reported, WiFi charges.
