My Wife and I have just visited the Palliser for 3 weeks , unfortunately our son had a skiing accident in Banff . Our first experience was when we turned up to check in a wonderful lady had heard our son was in hospital so she new we was preoccupied and she made the experience seamless . She also decided to upgrade us to and wonderful suite so we could have another room to talk to relatives and our son. All the staff from the cleaners to the door man were fantastic . I would fully recommend this hotel . And thank you to all the staff .

Beautiful hotel. We were impressed with the cleanliness and attention to Covid protocols. Enjoyed a drink at the very spacious and beautiful lobby bar. Too bad it closed at 10 due to Covid. Had the pool and steam room all to myself on Sunday morning.

We were here during the coldest month of the year in Calgary to visit family. We were treated like royalty. I cannot say enough about the level of service. Everyone from reception to housekeeping to the wait staff at the restaurant anticipated our every need. A special shout out to Rissa Dollentas, our server for breakfast every day. What an extraordinary sense of customer service she has. So pleasant, so accommodating. She had our coffee order ready for us the moment we arrived. We will be back. I can't say enough about our experience. Congratulations!

I am a Fairmont Pres Club member, and was assigned a poor room by elevator and very small. Stayed one night asked for a change and within 15 mins moved to a more appropriate room. Great service. The spa and bar were great as per usual.
