CALGARY — Calgary’s newest boutique hotel will open its doors June 24, 2021, but The Westley Hotel is already accepting reservations.
Part of Hilton’s Tapestry Collection Hotels, and the first Tapestry Collection hotel in western Canada, The Westley is located near the city’s Eau Claire neighbourhood on 4th Avenue between 5th & 6th St. SW and features 104 guestrooms, an open-concept lobby area and an outdoor patio.
“Guests of The Westley Hotel can expect genuine, personalized service that balances cool sophistication and down-home hospitality,” says Ian Jones, The Westley Hotel’s general manager. “Our talented team is ready to welcome visitors and the local community into our vibrant boutique atmosphere.”
The new hotel is re-born, completely re-constructed and re-designed from its past form — an old office building layout — with interior design by Frank Architecture. Contemporary art is featured throughout the hotel, with custom pieces by local artists Maya Gohill and Tanya Klimp displayed in the restaurant and lobby. A custom light installation by renowned New York artist Danielle Trofe hangs above the entrance.
The Westley will be home to Calgary restaurateur and president of Thank You Hospitality, Cody Willis’, newest concept, Fonda Fora with chef Rafael Castillo will be at the helm.
“This is an exciting moment for Thank You Hospitality as we prepare to launch our first dining concept within a boutique hotel, taking the next step of integrating travel into our culinary offerings,” says Willis. “We can think of no better partnership, as both The Westley Hotel and Fonda Fora strive to be destinations where locals and guests can enjoy great food and cocktails in an unparalleled and inviting atmosphere.”
