CALGARY — The Westley Calgary Downtown, Tapestry Collection by Hilton celebrated its first anniversary on June 30, 2022.

The celebratory event featured Bossa-Nova themed decor, live jazz music, a retro candy bar, chocolate cigars, authentic cigars, cocktails and tapas, as well as guided tours of the hotel. Many local dignitaries and community leaders attended the event, including Mayor Jyoti Gondek; Carson Ackroyd, Fraser Abbott, David Woodward and Cindy Good from Tourism Calgary; Darlene Fedoroshyn and Rhonda Hughes from Travel Alberta and more.

The Westley Hotel, owned and managed by Silver Hotel Group, offers a vintage vibe and an enticing food-and-beverage offering through Fonda Fora, a contemporary Mexican restaurant part of Thank You Hospitality’s portfolio. As part of its sustainability practices, the hotel provides water carafes with refill stations located on every floor. Guests can also purchase everyday items, snacks and beverages from The Shop, located next to the reception desk.

Additionally, the hotel has partnered with the Love for Lewiston Foundation and its mission to educate, create awareness and raise funds to find a cure for spinal muscular atrophy. Beginning July 2022 to July 2023, The Westley Hotel and Fonda Fora will donate a one-night retreat to the deserving guardians of medically ill children through the foundation.

“We opened The Westley Hotel when pandemic measures were still in effect, so the first anniversary celebration marks a milestone for us to reflect on and celebrate the challenges that the hotel and our team members have overcome to establish a unique place in Calgary’s hotel landscape,” says Ian Jones, general manager, The Westley Hotel. “It is rewarding to have the unwavering support of the community, our government leaders, including Tourism Calgary and Travel Alberta, and our industry partners and suppliers who are committed to the success of the hotel, and we are proud to showcase The Westley Hotel experience we have created.”
