Welcome to Calgary, Canada! I loved my first visit.

Where to have brunch in Calgary? Deane House

Enjoy refined seasonal Canadian cuisine in the historic riverside home built in 1906 for Captain Richard Burton Deane, the last serving North West Mounted Police Superintendent in Calgary. The gardens are beautiful and the house is located in Inglewood, at the confluence of the Bow and Elbow rivers, in the heart of Blackfoot territory, once known as Moh’Kinsstis.

Meet me at Fairmont Palliser, Calgary

I loved my stay at Fairmont Royal York in Toronto and was excited to see the Fairmont Palliser. I enjoyed drinks with friends at this beautiful property near the Calgary Tower. Thank you to Christine, Lindsay and Noelle for a wonderful afternoon.

Where to STAY in CALGARY?

The Residence Inn by Marriott Calgary Downtown/Beltline District has gigantic suites with full kitchens and stunning views of the Calgary Tower from sunrise to sunset. The breakfast buffet was enormous and the staff were extremely friendly, helpful and managed to keep all the tasty food resupplied constantly! The location was perfect for walking to dinner, downtown or all the best sites.
