We stayed at the Fairmont Palliser for an anniversary getaway and were blown away! We've stayed here before but this time was over the top. We had a penthouse suite which was huge and beautiful. We were pleasantly surprised when we came back to our room to find a bottle of champagne and chocolate covered strawberries and a card wishing... More

A fantastic experience on our wedding night. We were upgraded to a nice suite and, upon entering, were treated by a bottle of prosecco on ice, chocolate covered strawberries and soft music playing. We ordered room service which was delivered promptly and was delicious. Kudos to the Fairmont Palliser for going the extra mile on our special day- it was... More

My wife wanted to stay here while I was at a convention. Very small gym. Trains kept us up all night as the tracks are directly behind the hotel. Small rooms. Nice decor. 6 days here would have preferred the hyatt. Happy wife happy life.

The Palliser will spoil all other hotels for you. The rooms are lovely, well-appointed and super clean. The mattress and pillows ensure a great sleep. The staff are so attentive and friendly! I stayed in a Fairmont Gold room and had access to the Gold Members lounge - the breakfast was terrific and the attendants ensured I had gluten-free toast... More

Now, I have stayed at this hotel in the... More
