I go up to Calgary pretty regularly, and I really like staying at the Fairmont. When going to a show at Flames Central, it is the only place I'll stay. (Very close). The gym is nice, the staff is very formal and the rooms are big. The rates on the weekends are very reasonable for a hotel that is this... More

All hotel staff made us feel welcome and special. The decor took me back to the time when hotels had character and were truly grand. The rooms were comfortable and fairly spacious. Everything downtown is within walking distance.

We upgraded to the 8th floor gold and unfortunately the floor above was under renovation. Very noisy in our room during the day and started up at 8am. We should have avoided the upgrade and had a cheaper, quiet room.

We stay here about once a year. It is centrally located in the downtown core and is an excellent value for a weekend. This visit was for an awards banquet - the food was really tasty and there were many options to choose from. The wait staff were friendly and helpful.

A landmark hotel in the heart of the city next to the Calgary tower. Not a lot of character in the building but the rooms are big with high ceilings. No need to upgrade here as the Fairmont rooms are quite large. Swimming pool and facilities are OK but nothing special. Nothing over the top with this hotel but it... More

I was excited to be staying at this hotel due to it's history and the reputation of the Fairmont brand. When I walked in I was truly impressed with the opulance and grandeur of the lobby. It was like walking into a 19th century castle. But that's where my excitement ended. The check-in experience was fine, no issue. The room... More

Consistently perfect. That is why I love Fairmont properties. I rarely have an issue and when I do it is deal with in a timely manner. The Palliser has always been very accommodating and filled every request I give them.

The Fairmont location is right downtown in Calgary. It's so close to Stephen Ave and very easy to get to 17th Ave. There are many locale restaurants all within walking distances like Charcut, etc. The Palliser has some of the most amazing staff and the hotel is simply beautiful.

This was our first time at the Palliser and It definitely lived up to Fairmont standards. The location can't be beat...its within walking distance to everything. The classic old world charm will absolutely bring us back!

The food at the Wedding at the Palliser was the best I've ever had. Salmon was wonderful. Everything was very good. Beautiful venue. The rooms were spacious. The staff were very helpful at check in. The lobby is luxurious. Lovely stay. We never had breakfast in the hotel, only the meal at the wedding, but if that is any indication... More
