We only stayed here for 2 nights on a Rocky Mountaineer tour.A beautiful hotel with spacious rooms. We didn't use the restaurants in the hotel as its only five minutes walk to Stephen avenue where there is plenty of outdoor bars & cafes. Friendly helpful staff & beautiful old world lobby. Close to the huge Core Shopping Centre.

First, I don't think there are any bad Fairmont properties, and yes, a property on a tropical beach would be best, but when you are staying in Calgary, this is the place to stay. Location is great for business or tourism, right downtown, steps from the Calgary Tower, Bankers Hall, and Stephen Ave (a pedestrian road with lots of shops,... More

We stayed at the Palliser for a conference. We enjoyed the nice big room with coffee & tea maker and bathrobes. Self Parking we paid for but was in a good location beside the hotel in a parade. The conference rooms were good and the meals were excellent....bagged lunch as well was very adequate and nutritional. The bed was comfortable.... More

Just completed a two night stay at the Fairmont Palliser on the Gold Floor. Our room was big, beautiful, clean, and very quiet. The staff were always polite and very helpful. The Gold Floor Lounge is an oasis in the middle of a busy city. We are very grateful for such a pleasant stay. Highly recommended.

Definitely worth the upgrade to the Gold package , having the dinner appies ( which was more like a full dinner) and full breakfast included in the stay was well worth the money spent. The rooms were quiet and the beds were very comfortable . Would highly reccomend to anyone.

This was our last hotel finishing our Rockies train trip. The hotel was of a great standard as were the rooms. The bed, linen, pillows were very comfortable and the bathroom was roomy and of a high standard. We were only there for a night before been taken to the airport to go to our next tour, the Colombia Snake... More

Grand surroundings, comfortable room and very good food supplied for our conference. The food costs were partially supplied as part of the conference. There are good eating places nearby especially along Stephen Street which is for pedestrians and public transport.

I stay in Fairmont Hotels frequently. Always meet expectations. Classic hotel in a great location. Here is a tip. If you want free internet just sign up for the President's Club. It's free and there are benefits for joining. The benefits increase with your frequency of stays.

Upon arrival, we were impressed with the opulent decor, but less so with the apparent miscommunication between staff members concerning payment policies. I highly recommend becoming a club member, as it is free of charge and the perks included are definitely worth the 5 minute sign-up. With it you receive free internet, of which there is usually a charge of... More
