Fairmont hotels never let you down We have stayed at several Fairmonts in the Gold Rooms and they are always fantastic. The Palliser is no exception. The rooms are modern, well equipped and very clean. The rooms have no balcony but a small window that opens half way which is ok - we had a view of the Calgary Tower... More

Great room at a great price! The Fairmont Palliser,although an old hotel, was in amazing shape with wonderfully renovated rooms and decor. Check-in was fast and allowed us to get to an appointment right on time. Enjoyed our short stay and will be back.

The Fairmont Palliser is always a great experience, but this trip, I was able to stay on the Gold Floor again. I am always treated exceptionally and was pleasantly surprised to have two of the concierges recognise me from my previous stay in the spring.

I stayed at the Fairmont Palliser in Calgary for a short business trip. The hotel is a beautiful historic hotel and the staff is very professional. I was in a gold level room which provided access to happy hour and breakfast on the penthouse level. This was a nice perk. The breakfast was excellent with a great variety of warm... More

Extraordinary service, clean rooms, perfect place to be in Calgary. It begins with the arrival by cab, it continiuos with the check in and upgrade, it follows by perfect recommendations for restaurants and bars and ends with a smile on each employee.

My family and I have stayed at Palliser quite a few times over the years. While it is a fairmont it just does not have the level of service you find at more resort locations like Banff or Jasper. Also, with kids this is not the best location with the exception of if we have stayed on the Gold Floor... More

I've stayed at several Fairmonts, but the Palliser has to be one of my favourites. It's got that "grand old dame" thing going on, good location for downtown and comfy beds. I had two dinners there, both excellent, and was very happy to have Starbucks in the hotel for a quick breakfast. But by far the best thing was the... More

We had a great stay at the Palliser Fairmont, the meals in the rime rock were very nice & enjoyed the gold club floor. We enjoyed the RnR Wellness Spa for a pedicure which was very nice. We loved everything about our stay.
