The Fairmont Palliser is certainly centrally located in Calgary, although that wouldn't be hard, the city is small and anything within the city limits is not far from the downtown. The hotel is very old and the appearance from the outside looks like it needs a good scrub. Every aspect - the lobby, the elevators, the air conditioning, the bathrooms... More

Convenient location, great rooms and wonderful staff. Bathroom was very nice and having the two TVs in the suite was great. Concierge was particularly helpful recommending that I not travel in a certain direction as it may be less safe. Appreciated she looked out for me.

This is a nice older style hotel right in the middle of Calgary close to the main eating street - 8th avenue. Bar pricing is good and they supply great snacks. We did not dine in the restaurant due to the menu being not to our liking. The rooms are great but once again the vanity sink gave no room... More

Beautiful, grand, wonderful hotel in the middle of Calgary. We had upgraded to gold status. Breakfast & happy hour in the penthouse was a lovely end to our masters week at Spruce Measows. My daughter and I will stay there again.

We stayed at the Palliser for four days. It's a truly historic location, right in the middle of downtown and convenient to everything. Rooms were beautifully restored and decorated. Comfortable bed, lots of pillows and fine linen. Bath had everything you might want including complimentary robe and convenient lighted make-up mirror. You can tell that this grand old hotel has...

The Fairmont Palliser is an establishment in which to stay when visiting downtown Calgary. Rooms are updated and very comfortable. The restaurant and lounge are very good. Staff is very friendly and helpful.

The price was surprisingly much lower than last time I stayed here - likely since I was facilitating a University Alumni Event which may have had a lower rate than my corporate client rate in the past. Rooms were excellent, very quiet and private. I appreciate the quality of the dining room and the Oak Room, but the prices are... More

We had one night here before setting out on The Rocky Mountaneer. Slept like a baby. Spent time in the upscale bar. Ordered drinks and appetizers. Very dressy crowd which was quite nice. All was excellent.

Thanks to a great front desk check-in clerk, my 85 year-old mother who was visiting Calgary for the first time was able to experience an nice upgrade to a suite. With a view of the tower, she was able to marvel at this great city! It was so close to so many places within walking distance. Would return in a... More
