I was looking at downtown Calgary rental apartments and their amenities and Westview Heights fares very well by comparison.  We offer a big indoor pool, a large fitness room, washer and dryer on each floor, fob security, LRT a block away, a large rental office on the premises, three elevators, a large lobby and meeting area, and finally a grocery store and daycare on the ground floor.

Some downtown Calgary rental apartments offer pets wash, car wash, yoga room, etc.  but I regard these as faddish.  The only other amenity I would like to see would be a pharmacy – I can see the usefulness in that.

Perhaps I should say that my criteria for what is based on what I regard as essential so I admit it is by its v. nature subjective.  However, I think downtown Calgary rental apartments and their amenities should be regarded as conveniences, for the tenant, and if it saves you dollars so much the better!
