My husband and I decided to go on a last minute in a weekend away, spending one night at the Palliser. The hotel lobby was beautiful and the staff were very friendly. We had booked into a suite. The suite was very nice except for the view. It was the view of the railway cars. A little disappointed as I... More

The rooms have been renovated and look great. Service was great as usual. Love staying here . They always make you feel special. The lounge needs some upgrading though. Service from all staff was excellent. Close to really good restaurants. Rim rock only open for breakfast as being renovated.

This is the best hotel in Calgary! I stay here 5 or 6 times per year and the bellmen know me by name. Service is excellent and I have best sleep in the beds. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone coming to Calgary.

Enjoyed the room service infact it was the best club sandwich I have ever had! The old world architecture of the Hotel is amazing, classical high ceilings and moldings. One suggestion, there is...

Still a stately old hotel in the heart of Calgary, The Fairmont Palliser is a joy to stay at. Grand reception rooms, sumptuous dinning and impeccable service are it's constant claim to fame. Our last stay was just a little "get away" overnight and it didn't disappoint. A staycation or just a little luxury in the midst of a hectic... More

Loved it! We were given a complimentary upgrade to the Gold floor. This was a great addition to our trip. The Valet staff were very helpful and service was efficient. The Hotel is absolutely beautiful and in a perfect location if you want to experience the downtown buzz of Calgary.

I booked a junior suite bed and breakfast package for my best friend and I to celebrate our birthdays. The stay was perfect. All staff address you by name and are warm and kind.

I recently stayed here on business and was blown away by the hotel's beauty (immaculately maintained), comfortable guestrooms, fantastic bathrooms (with great tubs and Le Labo toiletries). Staff were exceptional and anticipated every need. Meeting space and staff were also excellent, everything was exactly as expected and came together flawlessly. On-site Starbucks is an added bonus, and next time I'm... More

Hello there! What a super review! We are so happy to hear you loved your stay with us! The Starbucks on property is indeed a great addition! We look forward to welcome you back where perhaps, you'll notice a different rate as the city's hotels, Sunday-Wednesday, are certainly peaked with demand which impacts rate. Thank you for your review. Best,... More
