We had a junior sweet & it was GORGEOUS! Separate living room & bedroom & all so lovely. Huge bed too which helps. The staff were super friendly & couldn't... More

My daughter and I stayed at the Palliser last Friday for one evening. I have stayed at this hotel in the past....(had my SUV stolen from Valet Parking in November 1997)...so it has taken a couple of recent stays (feb 2016, August 2011 and this past weekend)for me to get past this and reestablish a loyalty to this particular Fairmont....

Gorgeous historic hotel in downtown Calgary with nice rooms and friendly staff. Loved the main bar -- pricey but great food and drinks. This hotel is close to the Calgary Tower which is a must see spot! Also within walking distance of Stephens Avenue which is a great area to shop and eat.

We checked in and the valet/concierge was very efficient. Our initial room had a faint smell so we were moved to another room with no fuss. Room service was pretty good, and large selection of beers at the bar. We got a late check out for 2pm, $50 food voucher and waived pet fee. Very happy all round. Plus it... More

Stayed at the Fairmont Palliser for a night and it didn't disappoint. Great views of the city, heating was comfortable and the room was clean and cosy. Friendly staff on check in and check out and plenty of car spaces if you are driving. Highly recommended!!

This place is beautiful and the price was decent but when you have add ons that you have requested and paid for, yet don't receive them and don't get reimbursed, it does not sit well. For any smokers, watch out when you're outside smoking, there are a lot of intoxicated vagrants that just love to get in your face.

My husband and I stayed at the recently renovated Fairmont Palliser Hotel in Calgary for our annual summer vacation. Conveniently located in downtown Calgary, this hotel is within walking distance of many fine restaurants, tourist destinations, and the clean C-train transportation system. The staff, especially at the Rimrock, were friendly, helpful, and accomodating. No request was too small, whether it... More

We love the cleanliness, customer service, and amenities. The remodelled rooms are fantastic. We are accustomed to Four Seasons standards, and this was on par. Loved the convenient Starbucks. The Oak room pub was perfect for quick service and great unfussy food, but still quality ingredients. The boar burger was great. The bedding is exceptional. No noise in hallways.

The hotel is in an old building and offers a gracious setting. The main floor area is large with high ceilings and lots of stone and brass. Our room was spacious and nicely decorated, except it was missing amenities that are expected. The check in experience was not friendly and I did not feel welcome. The bathroom was missing conditioner... More
