A very nice hotel in the heart of downtown Calgary. We happily stayed here again this year. Nice large rooms, beautifully finished. Wifi worked well. Nice bar and restaurant. No issues at all, just a very nice stay. A reasonable walk, or a very short cab ride, from the Calgary Stampede. Good service from all the staff. We had a... More

Stunning property. Small rooms like a lot of historic hotels but very comfortable. Friendliest staff. Starbucks. Check out the history gallery & art at the lobby. Super friendly valet. One block to Stephen Ave.

We stayed here mid November and were really disappointed with the room size and the service. A lovely receptionist upgraded us, which was nice, to a room that you would expect from a facility like this. However, the pool was freezing, the bar tables cluttered and dirty. We waited a good 40 mins for small plates of bar food and... More

Staying at the Palliser Hotel contributed to a fun weekend get away for our family. The hotel is centrally located, has a beautiful historic atmosphere with updated clean rooms. The staff are all friendly and helpful. We ate at one of the hotel restaurants and the food did not disappoint. There is now a Starbucks in the basement - an... More

I travel a lot for business and I have never given full marks to any other hotel - but the Fairmont was excellent. Its is well run and the staff are all clearly trained to go the extra mile. The beds and linen are pretty much spot on. I was there giving a week long training course in the business... More

Whenever I am in Calgary there is only one hotel that meets all my needs. The Fairmont Palisar Hotel has a consistent track record with me. I am guaranteed a great nights sleep with their comfy white linen sheets and their special fairmont pillows and duvets. Being a fairmont presidents member has allowed me to travel light and use the... More

We stayed in Palliser for one night as a staycation and had a great time. I recommend anyone to stay downtown at the palliser. The service by the staff was great and the buffet breakfast in the morning was delicious.

The Palliser Fairmont is perfectly located for a walking experience of downtown Calgary. Unbelievably high ceilings, sexy showers make the rooms an exceptional experience. Responsive staff made the stay a very pleasant experience

My husband and I enjoyed a lovely stay at the Fairmont. The hotel is beautiful and the room was well-appointed and clean. The staff were friendly and helpful and we enjoyed a delicious in-room breakfast. Our stay at the Palliser was a lovely stay-cation in Calgary.

Right next to the Calgary Tower and a 3 minute walk to the city's entertainment centre. This grand hotel built for high rollers and cattle barons is perfectly located for a stay in Calgary. If you don't like the meal prices then you can easily find a very reasonably priced alternative in the centre. Plenty of pubs restaurants and dance... More
