Beautiful spot to be for a night away. Christmas time very romantic being right downtown and then coming back to your luxurious 5 star hotel like something out of the movies. It was perfect and didn't cost an arm and a leg either.

We stayed last minute on a Friday night. We got an amazing rate & the history of the Fairmont is surrounding you. The location was great, we walked down Steven Ave shopping, popped into the Glenbow Museum & enjoying the tower all lit up. The hot tub & steam were very relaxing. The only thing I would ask is for...

It is a nice hotel. I did not really like my room layout and the fact that the hotel is facing (in the beck) the rail tracks. Otherwise the bed was confortable. Wifi is good. Coffee machine in the room.

We stay at Fairmonts allot and like all Fairmonts the Palliser is amazing. You walk into a very elegant lobby and greeted by so many welcoming smiles. The girls at the presidents desk are amazing. So helpful. They take care of any specific requirements right there to ensure a very special stay. The gold floor rooms are beautiful and spacious...

I love Fairmonts and stay in them wherever possible. I just finished a 3 Fairmont trip involving Vancouver Waterfront, Palliser, and Royal York. Palliser was the least satisfactory experience. Not bad, mind you, but just not quite up to the very high bar Fairmont sets. To begin with as a Presidents' Club member I checked in in advance, but instead...

A great hotel with great service. We love the hotel, location and service except need to pay attention to a little detail. Our room was not cleaned well.

“I find floor 8 to be one of the most pleasant. If you can get an east facing window you can see the Calgary Tower which lights up at night.”
