What can I say about the Legendary Palliser Hotel Calgary ? First I like just simply staying with fairmont hotels... but the Palliser is full of character I just love and in the heart of the city... Rooms can get pricy but I will give them that on occasion there are some great deals... Nothing beats Sunday Brunch @ the... More

The premier place to stay when in calgary on business or pleasure. Tops in my book. Ask for the quiet room and that is what you shall get. Staff is awesome and the grounds are second to. None. Thanks Fairmont for a job well done.

Want to feel like royalty. This is it. Palatial lobby and hallways, fairytale beds, roman bath like pool and great people watching. Felt like royalty the entire time. Convenient to great dining, safe evening walks on Stephen Avenue, a great way to pamper yourself. Take advantage of all that downtown Calgary has to offer

My advice, pay a little extra to upgrade to the "gold floor" and utilize its amenities: Late check-out, honor bar on the penthouse floor, the rooms are amazing! It is well worth it for a multitude of reasons.

First time at this hotel was this past week. They take customer service to the highest level. Everyone is extremely professional and treat you like royalty. The Rimrock Restaurant is very nice and expensive. Good quality food and great service. The lounge is very classy and comfortable. The servers are again very professional. I strongly recommend you try their appetizers.... More

We spent a night here and it was SO incredibly amazing! The room was a little on the small side, but the bathroom was huge! The pool was nice too! The lobby is over the top and a great place to sit and people watch!

I loved this hotel for its classic charm plus the decorations during the Christmas season made it that much more enjoyable. Tastefully decorated throughout lobby & hallways. Loved the feel of the old school classic chandeliers. Room was clean, spacious & comfortable. Room had been recently reno'd so that was nice. I liked the bath tub having a handshower. Nice... More

This hotel has been a favourite of mine for nearly twenty years. Great food, fantastic service and the bedrooms are very comfortable. My big thing is the beds and these beds are kind on my back and neck. I wake up having slept well and that means a lot. Use the valet service if you come by car......a real pain... More

It's always great to stay in the Palliser and this trip was no exception. From the easy check in to the professional and delightful staff, this hotel is a gem. The Oak Room is one of our favourite places to grab a burger or something more substantial--lovely atmosphere. The newly decorated guest rooms are lovely and the beds are so... More
