Me and my boyfriend decided to get away from edmonton for the weekend. We picked the fairmont because we have stayed at the lake Louise, jasper and also edmonton location and we have always had pleasant stays. The location of Fairmont Palliser is very convenient. The staff that checked us in were very accommodating. We stayed on the renovated floor... More

En route to Banff from New Jersey, my husband and stayed the evening at The Fairmont. What a delight after a long day flying. We stayed in a junior suite, gorgeous doesn't begin to describe the room.

I arrived at the Fairmont last Friday night, was met at the door when I stepped out of the Airport Shuttle by a gentleman who had my room key ready and me pre-checked in. I was quickly helped up to my lovely room. I enjoyed a massage at their spa- one of the most relaxing places I've ever been. I... More

We love staying at the Fairmont Palliser when in Calgary for business. The location is great for walking to our appointments, and always enjoy returning to the Palliser to relax. We always feel very pampered! Also enjoy the healthy and hearty choices included in the Bed & Breakfast Package!

Had the opportunity to spend a night at The Fairmont Palliser recently. Fairmont are always our hotel brand of choice when we travel, and this hotel lived up to the reputation. Located downtown Calgary, there's lots of self parking available directly linked to the hotel. We checked in and the front desk agent (didn't catch his name) made us feel... More

After 12 nights at the Banff Springs we had a couple of nights at the Palliser and were not too sure what to expect. But we needn't have worried, the hotel is lovely, the rooms are great and the staff are a delight. The hotel was ideally placed for our shopping trip. We had planned to eat out in the... More

This is a beautiful old historic hotel in downtown Calgary, with easy access to offices, restaurants, etc. Rooms were of a very good size, and very comfortable. My only criticism is that they could do with some proper flat storage space. I like to unpack if staying more than one night, but most drawers were occupied by glasses, etc. Bathroom... More

My wife and I stayed at the Palliser as a night away from the kids. We enjoyed a massage and a night out on the town, booked by the wonderful concierge service.
