The Staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was large and the bed was fabulous best bed we have ever slept in, we had a great breakfast using the buffet even had eggs benedict on the buffet, quite expensive, but if you filled up you wouldn't need to eat all day, so not to bad value. Great location in...

The Fairmont Paliser is located at the heart of downtown Calgary. When we arrived, they have both self park and valet. For weekends, valet is 29 bucks, but week days is 40. If you are staying for weekdays, I recommend the self park, just because 40 dollars a day adds up. The room itself looks new and refurbished. Flat screen...

My son and I arrived last night after a long arduous flight from Sydney direct. Our luggage was misplaced by the airport goblins in LA , so we arrived at the hotel some 20 hours later looking like wrecks with nothing. The AMAZING staff swept us up and had solutions to our immediate problems....from reception, to concierge, to Chris the...

Stayed here on business for a couple days in December 2016. Front desk check in was fast and efficient and hotel is centrally located. Staff throughout was courteous and helpful without being insincere. After checking into my room, noticed that it was drafty and called downstairs. Initially they tried fixing the HVAC unsuccessfully. Within 10 minutes the front desk gentleman...

We stayed at the Palliser for a quick two night stay in a Deluxe room. The rooms were very modern, but the hotel itself maintains its classical charm. The only complaint was the valet parking. One morning it took 20 minutes to get our vehicle, which for the price of valet is obscene. We ended up just parking in the...

We had our first stay at the Palliser on New Year’s Eve, and were not disappointed. Nearly all employees we encountered were beyond helpful and pleasant, especially Pam at the front desk. At the time of booking, the room listing stated that it was a city view, but when we arrived, we were a bit disappointed to find our room...

This hotel is at an excellent location, close to shops, restaurants, museum, theatre.... has great food and provides superior service. I was in the recently renovated rooms that are very comfortable rooms! My family had a very memorable weekend at this hotel. I absolutely recommend it for both family and business travel. The pool and hot tub are super too!

Had a lovely relaxing time at the Palliser, pretending to be a tourist in my own city. The room may have been a tad on the small side but was very well appointed, cozy and clean with of course the signature comfy Fairmont bed. The staff were all very friendly and accommodating. I would certainly return for another time out...
