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

Perfect location downtown and everything is within walking distance, fabulous restaraunts and shopping. The hotel is beautiful and rooms are very comfortable and elegantly updated yet still feels like a historic hotel. Overall it was a wonderful experience. The staff was very accommodating and pleasant. Even though the spa facility is small, there were quite enough amenities to make it... More

The Palliser is historically beautiful in downtown Calgary. Easy to get to and within walking distance to Stephen Avenue and a number of great restaurants. The Saddledome is close by and easy to get too as well. Service is excellent and if you watch for deals, the price can't be beat. Stayed there for $139. Valet parking is $30 and... More
