My friend and I wanted to do something special for my birthday. High Tea here was definitely special. Everything was just perfect , including the service. I would recommend any man to take your wife here for her Birthday , Mothers Day or a surprise. Ladies take your mothers , sisters and your daughters.

The Fairmont Palliser, part of Calgary's history, is an elegant reminder of times past, but with the comforts expected of a modern hotel. We wanted a getaway, but were not keen on driving or flying anywhere, so instead decided to visit our old friend, the Fairmont Palliser, where many meetings, special events and conferences have been attended over the years....

Located downtown in walking distance to most restaurants and attractions. I found the rooms clean but very small. The service was good but no wow factor. As an older hotel it certainly is showing its age. No complaints at all. Just a nice old hotel.

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
