Special Places to Stay Downtown for Couples in Southern Alberta's Largest CityGreg Mattson, ERV Editor - Posted: Dec 2, 2013
Enjoy these photos, reviews and HD Videos of Calgary's most romantic hotels and suites.
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)

Hotel Le Germain - a truly romantic boutique hotel experience in downtown Calgary. Room accents are on warm wood tones and natural light, with amenities like rainfall showers, goose-down bedding, ergonomic chairs, and in-room Nespresso machines. The Charcut Roast House Restaurant and Lounge Central 899, plus the rooftop Sante Spa give this romantic Calgary inn an almost "all-inclusive" resort feel in the heart of the city.

HD video of Calgary's Most Romantic Hotels and Inns: The Kensington River Inn, Hotel Le Germain, Fairmont Palliser and Hotel Arts in Downtown Calgary, AB.
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)
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 Whirlpool 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)
