Stayed for one night as a start of our holiday, everything super, very helpful staff, great room and good breakfast. Wish we could have stayed longer. The whole experience was great, quick check in, super room, excellent breakfast. All the staff were pleasant and helpful. Wish we could have stayed longer

After a long flight check-in was not pleasant. Although I am a member of the President's Club, that check-in desk did not have any staff. (Anyone can join for free, so don't go to a Fairmont without joining!) The regular check-in staff put us into an undesirable room. It had been a smoking room, and even though it had been... More

We recently stayed at the Palliser with our Grand daughter and decided to splurge on the Gold Floor with access to the Club Lounge. The room was beautifully furnished and a small bed was brought in for our granddaughter. The staff in the Lounge were very attentive and friendly. They allowed us to order from room service and eat in... More

I've stayed at the hotel a couple of times in the regular rooms; however this time was a special treat for our 21st wedding anniversary.... so we went Gold. FANTASTIC is all that can be said, although expensive it was well worth the investment. That's right an investment; an investment in my relationship with my wife and kids. Our room... More

Not only is the hotel stunning, the staff is as well. Muhammad checked me in with the most professional, gracious hospitality that I've seen in quite some time. Another front desk employee, Pam, was another shining star of this facility; she had all the answers to my questions and her positive, energetic spirit was refreshing. The room was well appointed,...

My 2nd time to this hotel. It's on promotion so I got a unbelievable deal. Probably only $20 more than a new, 3-stars, non-downtown hotel. The lobby interior is great. The room is of good size and furnished. Unfortunately I didn't get upgrade this time, but it's still my first choice in Calgary.

This hotel is really amazing, very classy and not expensive. actually surprisingly good price. I really recommend it . The breakfast is a little expensive if you chose the complete one but it it surely worth it.

We began and ended a trip to the Canadian Rockies and Montana at the Fairmont Palliser in Calgary. This was a wonderful beginning and end. The amenities and staff are absolutely superb. Every aspect of this hotel gets a top notch rating.

I stay here at least onece a month and I stay on a premium Gold floor. They never seem to know that I have ever stayed at the hotel when I check in. I've stayed here likely 25 times in the past couple of years. It even says when my last stay was on my paperwork upon check in yet... More

My friends and I are not "luxury travelers," but we opted to stay right downtown on our last night in Calgary after a week in Banff and Jasper National Parks. I think what we paid for the room was fair and it was a beautiful old hotel, but I am always surprised when I have to pay for Wi-Fi in... More
