The rates are good for weekend parking under the mall however if you lose your ticket your forced to pay 37 dollars for replacement. Quite ridiculous, especially when it's 3 hours free on a Saturday and 2 dollars for every hour afterward. Complete money grab. Was not impressed.

It is a clean mall with good stores. It is not an easy mall to navigate. Maps are helpful but many escalators were broken or out of service. Tried to get to the floor with the garden but it was like a maze of elevators and broken escalators. Prices are higher at this mall due to its downtown location.

Great variety of shops. High end clothiers, some great restaurants and loads of variety. Open every day of the week and close to all downtown hotels.

Downtown workers and residents, along with tourists and visitors all love the CORE. Shopping is spread over 3 levels, and features great shopping, restaurants, bars and professional services. Recently I was there when they were showcasing their huge recycling program. Bravo! When the mercury hovers at -15 C, there's no place like it to spend some time. Shopping tends to... More

Loved to just walk the halls in the Core, but got no shopping done. Felt way more comfortable going to the Chinook Centre. It is a nice atmosphere for a stroll.

Visited Calgary and HAD to go shopping. The Core was within walking distance of the hotel so off i went. This is an awsome mall visually, stories high, full of many many high end stores, I enjoyed myself here. Liked all the stores I visited BUT I must give credit to the wonderful anchor store, Hudson's Bay company for fun... More

Popped in mid afternoon on Saturday and found the Core mall pretty quiet. Not sure if it was the economy, the day or both. I suspect that it is much busier on weekdays as it's surrounded by office towers. Much appreciated the free parking 3 hours I believe on weekends.

The mall is beautiful and the ceiling which not only is amazing provides ample natural lighting. The linear design allows you to walk all the stores without missing any. At some points it also enables you to access the Plus Fifteen Skywalk. Nice way to spend a few hours.

Great mall to visit! Three floors tall with food court on forth floor. The gardens on the fourth floor were closed for construction. From a distance looked like they would have been great to see. Mall is three blocks long with sky bridges. Hudson Bay Dept. Store is an anchor. Has high end shops and a variety of shops.

Thank Laurence M
