Hotel Arts is continually innovating the look and feel of our property to align with the evolving tastes of our guests that are seeking new conveniences and unique accommodations.

April 27, 2018 (Calgary) – Hotel Arts is proud to announce the completion of a major renovation of 28 Studio guestrooms, giving their basic room category a design and functionality upgrade. Working with award-winning B&H CHIL Design and Calgary-based DIRTT Solutions, the newly unveiled Studio Rooms are an innovative product that provides guests with a stylish, comfortable hospitality experience. This renovation completes the transition to a consistent style throughout all rooms of the property, highlighting bright décor, enhanced functionality and artful touches throughout. Here’s a great video DIRTT produced about these rooms that will provide a better overview of this modular construction design. Watch the video that we’ve uploaded to our YouTube Page.

B&H CHIL Design won awards for their previous work with Hotel Arts on a $7M renovation of the Luxury Tower in 2015. They were tasked with incorporating the style aesthetics from the Luxury Tower into the panel modular construction of DIRTT Solutions.
In the newly renovated Studio Rooms, guests can expect a contemporary, art-focused design with practical room layout. Visitors will enjoy inviting king-sized beds with our signature headboards, accessible power and USB ports, dimmable lighting, blackout blinds, in-room safes, ample storage in addition to a number of other modern amenities. The bathroom features a rain shower and toilet enclosed in a glass cube with a bright, bold art overlay designed by Farmboy. A well-lit vanity with pedestal sink is flanked by custom millwork with a full-length wardrobe with mirror, bench seating and work desk. New windows were also installed brightening up the rooms considerably as well as reducing exterior noise.

The Studio Room renovation at Hotel Arts is the first hospitality project utilizing DIRTT Solution’s modular construction model which will have a significant impact on the rooms with wall panelling that provides a cleaner, fresh feel and boast long-term environmental benefits such as reduced construction waste. The flexible modules will make future updates more accessible, allowing Hotel Arts to keep aesthetics current with changing trends. “DIRTT provides a faster, cleaner and quieter building method, making it less intrusive for hotel guests during renovations,” said DIRTT founder, Mogens Smed. “The custom aspect of DIRTT’s modular construction meant the Hotel Arts’ designer could match the company’s brand to create a space for guests to relax and feel at home while on the road.”

Mark Wilson, General Manager of Hotel Arts Group is very pleased with the finished product for our clientele as well as the ease and flexibility for new updates. Wilson remarks that “Hotel Arts is continually innovating the look and feel of our property to align with the evolving tastes of our guests that are seeking new conveniences and unique accommodations.”

He adds, “our collaboration with B+H CHIL Design and DIRTT Solutions allows us to leverage our artful aesthetic while maintaining the functionalities of our spaces – a blend that provides a sophisticated, welcoming hospitality experience to our growing list of guests with an appreciation for the highest standard of design and service.”
