Still a stately old hotel in the heart of Calgary, The Fairmont Palliser is a joy to stay at. Grand reception rooms, sumptuous dinning and impeccable service are it's constant claim to fame. Our last stay was just a little "get away" overnight and it didn't disappoint. A staycation or just a little luxury in the midst of a hectic... More

Loved it! We were given a complimentary upgrade to the Gold floor. This was a great addition to our trip. The Valet staff were very helpful and service was efficient. The Hotel is absolutely beautiful and in a perfect location if you want to experience the downtown buzz of Calgary.

I booked a junior suite bed and breakfast package for my best friend and I to celebrate our birthdays. The stay was perfect. All staff address you by name and are warm and kind. We went to dinner and when we returned we were surprised to find a slice of birthday cake and a bottle of sparkling wine waiting for... More

I recently stayed here on business and was blown away by the hotel's beauty (immaculately maintained), comfortable guestrooms, fantastic bathrooms (with great tubs and Le Labo toiletries). Staff were exceptional and anticipated every need. Meeting space and staff were also excellent, everything was exactly as expected and came together flawlessly. On-site Starbucks is an added bonus, and next time I'm... More

The Fairmont Palliser Hotel otherwise known as "The Castle Downtown!" by my preteen daughters is a Calgary Icon. Even the Queen of England has do stayed there...Comfortable rooms and extra attentive staff always make our stay enjoyable. Men: be sure to step across the street for a haircut from one of the last traditional barbers left. Mr Sacco has been... More

Gold Floor is a great place to relax have a drink, appys are different each day. I personally love the added candies!! Breakfast in the morning is fresh and good selection and... More

We stayed here whilst on our honeymoon and the hotel was stunning. Our room was spacious, clean and very comfortable and all the staff were very friendly and accommodating. The food was delicious and the whole atmosphere of the hotel was really relaxed. Thoroughly enjoyable stay.

We visited Calgary for a wedding and spent two nights at the Fairmont Palliser. It is a typical former railroad hotel and thus every room is a different size and in some cases layout. The rooms are beautifully appointed and comfortable. Bathrooms have been remodeled and have excellent lighting. The hotel is conveniently located close to many restaurants and downtown... More

Thanks to the Fairmont for taking such great care of us! The milk and cookies for the kids delivered to the room and bottle of bubbly for the moms was a wonderful surprise. Valet is also a must and super helpful in retrieving required items when needed when traveling with small children.

Dearest FayLeanne, We caught the "moms and kids" having so much fun in the pool and guestrooms with us via Twitter, we couldn't help, but do what we could to turn that moment into a memory - thank you for that peek into your stay! We're so happy to hear we delighted with the cookies, milk and bubbles. Thank you... More
