Can't say enough good things about our stay. Truly a great experience and great service. While the cost was a little more than the other hotels, the staff more than made up for the difference in price with their attention to detail.

Great staff and great accommodation. Comfortable bed and a nice room with all necessary amenities. The only issue we had is that the door between our room and the adjoining allowed some noise and perfume scent in to our room. Gold floor lounge has recently been renovated an offers great views of the area.

The Fairmont Palliser knows their clientele. From the the minute you step out of your vehicle to the time of your departure. They always make it a great experience. Visit Anna in the lounge. She will definitely make your dining experience memorable. Thank you!

Welcoming team, from the concierge, bellman and housekeeping. Stayed for 2 nights and was treated as if I was staying for a year! This east coaster calls this nothing but impressive! Room was comfortable and newly renovated. No street or city noise was heard. Can I also say how beautiful The Palliser is- take a moment to enjoy the view.... More

Competitive prices, amazing staff, and nice Executive Suite. There was a train that went past my suite but I was able to get my room changed. Excellent excellent place. The room is nice and the hors d'oeuvre is a nice addition as well. Nice lounge.

Great iconic hotel near the tower. Great location with all the sights in easy walking distance. We were upgraded and had a large very comfortable room. Service was excellent from all the staff. Breakfast was either cooked or continental and both reasonable value. Otherwise did not eat in hotel as so many restaurants in close proximity. Join the club for... More

Nice weekend stay in Gold Floor room for business seminar. Gold Floor experience with breakfast and evening canapes in lounge is top notch. Excellent weekend rate but watch out during the week as prices double! Was upgraded to larger room. Rooms facing the railway are very noisy, you'll need ear plugs. Rooms are old fashioned with tall, narrow windows and... More

So happy to hear your enjoyed your stay while in Calgary on business! Indeed we are a 100-year-old hotel which was built along the tracks to connect Canada by rail since 1914. The schedule of the trains however, is 'up in the air' and we really never know when they'll come by - each day is different so we hope... More
