Hotel Arts

Now that winter has arrived, Poolside by Hotel Arts is transitioning for the winter months.  The inflatable air shelter is installed, enabling us to welcome patrons in summer-like comfort for a dip in the pool or dining on our patio – even in the depths of winter.

Hotel Guests:

Throughout the winter season when the inflatable shelter is installed, the swimming pool will be open from 6am – 10pm daily for in-house guests.

Towels are available poolside.

The pool may be closed from time-to-time for maintenance or private events on the patio but notification will be provided beforehand.

For hotel guests seeking to use the pool and enjoy poolside service on days/times when the Raw Bar is not open, please visit the Yellow Door Bistro and their service team will be pleased to assist with poolside service.  As no glassware or porcelain is permitted poolside due to safety issues, Yellow Door Bistro will be pleased to provide service during non-operating hours for Raw Bar.

Non-Hotel Guests:

The Poolside Lounge will be open for licensed service daily. Please see Yellow Door Bistro for Poolside service before 4pm.

A pool usage fee may apply for outside patrons who choose to use the pool.

Event Bookings:

For poolside inquiries, please email rawbar@hotelarts.ca.

For private events and large group bookings (30+), please contact our Events Team at events@hotelarts.ca or via phone at 403.206.9564.
