Play Well


Engage your pioneering spirit in downtown Calgary. Framed by snow-capped mountains, the city of Calgary is known as the gateway to the Rockies, luring visitors with its majestic natural beauty. And The Westin Calgary is located in the heart of its thriving downtown sector with countless shops, restaurants and museums just steps away via climate-controlled pedestrian walkways. View it all--from city streets to snowy peaks--at the Calgary Tower, offering spectacular 360 degree views. If sky high wonders don’t captivate your spirit, seek out retail therapy and discover an endless array of shops at the CORE Shopping Centre, directly adjacent to the hotel. Browse the aisles at Holt Renfrew, The Bay, and Harry Rosen or head to the Cactus Club or restaurants on Stephen Avenue for a bite to eat. Maximize your convenient location with a show or sporting event at Scotiabank Saddledome or take in the exhibits at the Glenbow Museum or Telus Science Centre. If you're looking for fresh air and lush botanicals, head over to Prince’s Island Park for a picnic. Young children and young at heart will delight in the exotic animals on display at the Calgary Zoo.
