Stayed one night at this hotel, in a Junior Suite. Room, as you would expect, was very large and had two huge TVs. No free water in the room, which I would have expected. We were on a trip organised by Rocky Mountaineer and somewhere along the line we must have told them this was a celebration for our Silver...

Great Family getaway or nice romantic location. The staff was friendly and very willing to help. Valet was a great touch to add to the experience being right downtown next to the Calgary tower. lots of stuff to do within walking distance. WIFI was an additional charge, crazy to me in 2017. If a fridge is required you will have...

My family travelled to Calgary for a wedding, and decided to spend our two nights in the city at this beautiful hotel. Everything about this hotel impressed me. It was spotless. A kettle, excellent tea, and Noritake mugs (I detest paper mugs) are normal room amenities. The bed was extremely comfortable. The window opened and the climate control worked. The...

Even though this hotel is in our home town we have stayed there dozens of times for various events. It is always a treat and the staff is exceptional. The location is in the core of the City of Calgary and walking distance to literally hundreds of restaurants and world class shopping. We did have a special request that we...

Stayed for two nights before doing a tour of the Canadian Rockies. What a beautiful historic hotel. Rooms were not extravagant but pleasant, with nice comfy beds. Bar was excellent place to meet party of others that we were to travel with and the restaurant was excellent for breakfast each morning. Would most certainly stay in this central location if...

Superb property with long hallways and nice views overlooking downtown Calgary. We stayed on the gold floor room 842 for an evening saturday. It was a king bed with sitting area and desk area. A wonderful sleep, fabulous linens and the staff was even thoughtful enough to bring up a water bottle with our purchase of Advil. We hope they...

Customer service was the best. Probably the best I ever had from anyone in the people business. The lady who I only know her first name, Pam, at the front lobby desk was not only really friendly, but was willing to go above and beyond. she exceeded all expectations. After a few bad customer service experiences this last couple months...

Recently spent three nights at The Palliser while attending a conference. As with most of the Fairmont properties of an older vintage, the Palliser has grand elements which are of a bygone era (the lobby) and other elements which are wearing a bit around the edges (old meeting rooms). Rooms can also be either on the small side but also...

I am not sure why I waited so long to stay at the Fairmont Palliser....I will not stay anywhere else. Conveniently located in the heart of the Financial/Business district and steps away from amazing restaurants (I like Saltlik and Murrieta's). This Five Start luxury hotel opened it's doors in 1914 and still remains Calgary's Premier address. I had the opportunity...
