Calgary Tower - Review
An iconic landmark of the city, as you head to Downtown Calgary, it’s difficult to ignore this looming structure in Calgary’s skyline. Although it’s now engulfed by similarly tall buildings, the view from this observation deck is still quite breathtaking.
Standing tall 191 meters above the ground, the top rim of the tower is illuminated at night. Stop for a bite at the 360 degrees revolving restaurant at the top of the tower.

Calgary Tower, Calgary Reviews
The first time I came to the Calgary Tower was in 1985. I have only been back to the top a couple times since and this last time was my first experience with the new glass floor feature that was installed a few years ago. Definitely a great spot for tourists although I will say it is a bit pricey to get to the top. The views are still a great even though there are so many buildings taller than the tower now.
We only had a short time in Calgary. This was really the best way to spend it. They give you an audio guide and it tells you all about the city. Great views, with all the history needed to leave feeling you know a bit about this great city. We also were able to walk a block away and have an amazing meal after. Great way to spend an evening in calgary.
I went here for dinner for my boyfriend on one of my last nights in Calgary. The restaurant here is lovely, cute and romantic, and reasonably priced. You get a nice lunch or dinner for two for about 50 dollars and complimentary coffee, and observation on the tower is free. The gift shop here is very cute as well with many small and unique souvenirs for both calgary in general as well as the tower. The location is nice too, right downtown, and within walking distance of an outdoor mall which is nice to go to while you wait for your reservation or after.
Visitor or local, you will always enjoy the 360° view of the city from the Calgary Tower. The glass floor offers a neat view of 9th Avenue, if you are comfortable standing on "nothing" high above street level and the short movie on the history of the Tower offers a personal insight into the city during construction. Definitely worth the price of admission, more so if you choose to stick around longer and eat at the Sky 360 restaurant.
From the tower, there's a good view around the city. But the restaurant was an utter disappointment! It was outdated, and ripped furniture. The cups(glasses) stinked so bad and the replacements (after a request) were not any better. The servers (except one) were not so friendly and cheerful working for a hot tourist attraction. Not even a smile! And the change from paying the bill was not brought back. Possibly assumed they deserved a large tip for replacing stinky glasses for us. If you ever plan to visit the tower, just pay the expensive fee to go up to the view point, as the restaurant will leave your whole experience in disappointment!
