Love the Palliser for my quick business trips to Calgary! The staff know me and my needs and try to make my stay special every time! I love how close it is to most major attractions. I also use it as a stop over between home and the mountains, making the trip that much more pleasant!

once again, the Palliser's reasonable prices and personal touches have made an unforgettable getaway. I don't even know why I try other hotels. Upgraded to an AMAZING room, and as always the gold level was worth every penny. Great cocktail snacks and breakfast with the most beautiful views. Twice now, we have chosen the Palliser as a romantic celebration weekend,... More

It has been my experience that booking a Fairmont anywhere in the world will provide you with a wonderful experience. This past weekend is no exception to that rule. We took a trip to Calgary to visit our oldest grandson. We booked in for the Saturday evening and booked the Fairmont Gold Concierge floor. We loved the option of arriving... More

One of the finest hotels with the staff going above and beyond to make sure that the stay was outstanding. An older hotel, with smaller rooms, but the plus is very quiet rooms. Central location and an extremely comfortable lounge. We had a reduced rate for the weekend and a holiday.

Stayed for one night as a start of our holiday, everything super, very helpful staff, great room and good breakfast. Wish we could have stayed longer. The whole experience was great, quick check in, super room, excellent breakfast. All the staff were pleasant and helpful. Wish we could have stayed longer

After a long flight check-in was not pleasant. Although I am a member of the President's Club, that check-in desk did not have any staff. (Anyone can join for free, so don't go to a Fairmont without joining!) The regular check-in staff put us into an undesirable room. It had been a smoking room, and even though it had been... More

We are so happy to hear that our colleagues on the FPC desk were able to turn your experience around! We'll certainly pass on your feedback about the first room, but we would like to share that since our latest renovations of our guestrooms, floors 9-11, we no longer offer smoking rooms. We strive to have fresh rooms, that only... More

We recently stayed at the Palliser with our Grand daughter and decided to splurge on the Gold Floor with access to the Club Lounge. The room was beautifully furnished and a small bed was brought in for our granddaughter. The staff in the Lounge were very attentive and friendly. They allowed us to order from room service and eat in... More

I've stayed at the hotel a couple of times in the regular rooms; however this time was a special treat for our 21st wedding anniversary.... so we went Gold. FANTASTIC is all that can be said, although expensive it was well worth the investment. That's right an investment; an investment in my relationship with my wife and kids. Our room... More

Not only is the hotel stunning, the staff is as well. Muhammad checked me in with the most professional, gracious hospitality that I've seen in quite some time. Another front desk employee, Pam, was another shining star of this facility; she had all the answers to my questions and her positive, energetic spirit was refreshing. The room was well appointed,...

My 2nd time to this hotel. It's on promotion so I got a unbelievable deal. Probably only $20 more than a new, 3-stars, non-downtown hotel. The lobby interior is great. The room is of good size and furnished. Unfortunately I didn't get upgrade this time, but it's still my first choice in Calgary.
