At this property I was given a room with only shower. The flour of the shower was below the drain and resulted in the experience of standing in a pool of grungy water whole having my shower. When I addressed the front desk manager on duty, Alex offered an upgrade on the next stay. Its not next time I'm uncomfortable,... More

Received an unexpected upgrade and had a really great room. It was very quiet and comfortable. It's a lovely old hotel, with a great deal of character and charm. Yes, there are trains at night -- but it was a railway hotel to begin with, so it's to be expected. I was not bothered by it at all. The staff... More

I have stayed at the Palliser many times in the past and have always been impressed with the friendly service and comfortable rooms. Indeed, one of the things I look forward to most is the comfy robes! Unfortunately, that was not to be the case this time around. When we arrived in our room I was very dissapointed to see... More

But we always aim to have bright white and fluffy robes and bedding! We absolutely will look into the fluffy-ness of our robes and we're happy to hear from you as obviously, many others, love and use these robes too. We look forward to have you back for a fluffy robe next time! Best, Jacqueline Tyler Communications Manager The Fairmont... More

The stay was very pleasant, in spite of waking up to snow on September 9! The staff was very efficient and helpful during our overnight stay. The restaurant prices were, in our opinion, rather pricey.

Stayed one night in this historic hotel. Beautiful interiors, efficient & friendly reception and concierge staff. Actually, everyone we ran across was helpful. Room was well appointed, clean, and spacious. On site restaurants were good, spa/pool area nice. Would definitely stay here again when in Calgary.

We stayed one night choosing Fairmont "Gold" and were extremely pleased. We find Gold to offer more value with the personalized and exemplary service, the complimentary food offered from 5 to 7pm, as well as an impressive complimentary breakfast. They also provide turn down service. We are Fairmont Premier and we have been to quite a few Fairmont properties in... More

I've staying in many Fairmonts this one has disappointed me the biggest. We are going to Calgary celebrate a family members 50th birthday. We booked online and accidentally booked the wrong weekend. We tried to explain our situation but I guess they don't care about the little people. All I get was that they reserved a room for me so... More

Hello there, We regret to hear of this unfortunate reservation mistake over the 50th celebration. I would like to look into your reservation further as in what website you booked the rooms online. We only manage Fairmont.com reservations and certainly would like to do our best to make this right for you where if it's on a partner site (i.e.... More

We spent an evening at the Fairmont to escape our home renovations. We selected the Fairmont to treat ourselves to a little luxury and pampering. It was the best decision ever! We upgraded to a Gold Room and were treated to very comfortable space with everything you would expect of a luxury classic hotel like the Fairmont. The service was... More
