This is a lovely historical hotel that has been recently updated (and is celebrating its 100th birthday). It is central to downtown Calgary which makes it easy to get around on foot or C-train. The bathroom was beautiful - fully updated. The staff is wonderful - every single one of them make you feel welcome. The hotel is pet friendly... More

The Calgary Fairmont Palliser is a gem of a hotel. Upgraded room on arrival. Room large and well appointed. Bathroom large and warm. Personal service from checkin to departure. Good food, too. Great location.

The Palliser is an interesting old building with a grand lobby. I stayed on one of the Fairmont Gold floors, the room was small, but at least the bathroom opened odd the bedroom. The bed was really comfortable; the only downside was the whir of the air conditioning unit. One night I ate in the hotel bar area, some of... More

Fantastic stay and proximity to the downtown core. Staff are very welcoming and willing to help. I was in an updated room which was well appointed and very clean. Food and services was outstanding. Highly recommend it.

I stay in Calgary often. I had never stayed here until this week. I loved the history and the food. There is a Starbucks in the hotel and the staff is nice. They matched the price I found online and treated me great. I will be back

This is a gorgeous hotel. It is priced accordingly, but it's the perfect spot to stay if you're wanting to be close to downtown Calgary. The lobby is enormous and beautiful, the rooms are clean and well-kept, and the service is excellent. The area behind the hotel has been in development for a number of years, but it still a... More

FAIRMONT PALLISER HOTEL CALGARY Hotel is celebrating 100 years. Beautiful elegant lobby. Rooms remind me of older European hotels. Nice decor with old style flare. Beds were not as comfortable as other hotels stayed in, but room was very quiet and air worked well. Pool is very nice and again reminds one of Europe. Sort of Roman style. Hot tub... More

What a beautiful hotel. Even with the trains operating behind the hotel it is in a great location. We walked everywhere we need to go. Unfortunately we picked the wrong weekend and the price per room was extremely high. We were not attending the Stampede but paid the price!!!

Some of the best service around. Stayed for two nights and no complaints, only that the room wouldn't cool below 71. They provided champagne and strawberries free of charge for the stay being the first part of our honeymoon. Would stay again for sure!
