My wife's company hosted their Christmas Party at The Palliser. The banquet was well served, but average food. The room was well appointed, but small and noisy compared to modern hotels. All-in-all, a nice hotel, but average by comparison to modern hotels.

I just returned from a business trip in Alberta and returned to the Palliser hotel after being absent for many years. Entering the Fairmont Palliser makes you feel like you are in a grand heritage hotel. The lobby is beautiful and grand. The staff are all very professional and ready to help. The gold floor rooms were renovated, spacious and... More

Wow, just spent a night at the Palliser and was impressed. The hotel is beautiful, the lobby is nicely decorated for Christmas. We stayed on the 8th floor in the Fairmont Gold section. Our room did not have a view but was well appointed with a nice comfy bed. The main downfall was the lack of a tub and small... More

I stayed here recently while attending business meetings at the hotel. I had one of the suite rooms, and it was very spacious and comfortable. There was one problem that occurred; the front desk admitted to the problem and worked to resolve it without prompting from me. I always appreciate this level of service. The staff really make this a... More

I have had the pleasure of staying at this hotel several times for business and I believe I enjoy each stay more and more. From the minute I stepped into the property from the parking garage (NOTE: take advantage of their Valet service), the staff in the halls and elevator greeted me. Such a simple common courtesy that is anything... More

try to get on a renovated floor (I.e 9th)....the rooms are much larger. Very well appointed, classy and comfortable. Very quiet also. Primo location in downtown Calgary. Room service on the pricey side, but breakfast in bed was worth it. Service always impeccable. Valet return of vehicle a bit slow (35 mins?), but that was only complaint, clearly a first... More

Our recent stay at the Fairmont Palliser was truly relaxing. Right from check in to check out, the staff were helpful and courteous and made us feel right at home. With all the Christmas parties going on and the number of guests coming and going we did not feel rushed or not important. They truly know how to take care... More

I came to this hotel for a public speaking tournament that was in Calgary! The rooms had that grandeur feel to them and the staff was very friendly. I wish I could have stayed an extra few nights because Calgary is one of my favourite cities in Canada. I look forward to returning very soon!!

I have been coming to Calgary for 30 years on business and have stayed at the Palliser hundreds of times. Public space is great during holidays and rooms are comfortable though not overly large. You do want to make sure you are not backing up on the railroad tracks since the freight trains can go for miles. Restaurant serves first... More
