COVID-19 UPDATE:  Launched a new online ordering service for curbside delivery and takeout for their 4-course Prix Fixe Dinners for you to enjoy in the comfort of your home during the COVID-19 crisis. These dinners can be paired with brews and ciders from Village Brewery or choose from a selection of wines (must show ID at pick-up).    

Hotel Arts values accountability, empowerment, care and fun. A locally owned and operated company, they are committed to the success of the city and supporting and promoting other locally owned and operated businesses. Hotel Arts is known for their two award winning restaurants; Yellow Door Bistro and Raw Bar, various meeting and event spaces as well as their carefully curated collection of Canadian art.

Hotel Arts supports the local community whenever it can and takes care of its employees, guests and contractors. Some of the ways it does this is through:

Installation of a Vivreu water system (still and sparkling water filtered and bottled in house) – both for the restaurants complimentary to the guests; company-wide composting and recycling systems; use of biodegradable to-go containers company-wide; sourcing local food producers whenever possible in both restaurant and banquet operations, and building lasting relationships with them. Hotel Arts eliminates paper usage where possible – for example, the wine lists in Yellow Door Bistro are on iPads.

Hotel Arts gives back to the local community by supporting arts, culture and culinary organizations, and fostering a relationship with SAIT Hospitality Program to recruit and hire the future of hospitality and culinary.

Hotel Arts also provides guests with complimentary use of bikes to explore the city or commute to a meeting, as well as encouraging staff to bike to work by providing bike storage. A Hotel Arts soccer team exists as a fun way to engage employees and give back to local charities.

More recently, the hotel introduced amenity dispensers offering Canadian made shampoo, conditioner, body lotion and body wash from Skoah, eliminating a substantial amount of waste from individual plastic bottles.
