I was booked into Hyatt Regency around the corner but escaped to the Fairmont which is much better. I stayed only one night for business and still managed to enjoy the spa. Very nice place with steam room and the pool. Receptionists were very friendly and helpful. Room was good.

We booked on a Saturday in March for a quick night out downtown. Check in was prompt and courteous and we were put in a deluxe king for the night. The room was well appointed and a bit small but overall quiet and cozy. We usually stay at LeGermain which are a bit larger and more modern. The hotel itself...

I love this character hotel in the heart of Calgary's exciting downtown. They do not charge a pet fee and there is a nice park about 10 minutes walk from the hotel. The staff are very friendly and the valet parking staff are fast even on a busy weekend.

This hotel is so lovely and grand. 5 star accommodation and service. So close to everything. Walking distant to restaurants, museum and shops. We booked this place a year beforehand and got a great rate. Can't really fault anything and it is a Fairmont Hotel so you know the place is going to be good.

Two night stay for a first time visit to Calgary. Beautiful building and furnishings in public and private areas right near Calgary Tower and Stephens Street shopping. Room service and Oak Room dinners were very good. All staff were delightful. Would recommend and return.

My wife and I only had a short visit for lunch and were impressed with the quality of the lobby and bar area as well as the professional service. The next visit will be a stay in the hotel as from what we can see the rates are very fair.

Stayed here for 6 nights recently during a large citywide conference. Staff was excellent and reacted quickly to all requests. Willing to help. Sarah in the bar was great, her specialty cocktails the best. Room service was always less than 25 minutes. Great Spa in the hotel. Only issue, there is no storage drawer space in the bedroom. Nowhere but...

The room was immaculate, hotel amenities were great, tremendous location in the heart of downtown Calgary. Parking is convenient; easy walk to downtown restaurants, located near public transportation. I highly recommend this hotel for those who wish to experience downtown Calgary.

I took my mother and son here for their Mother's Day Brunch. It was disgraceful - we weren't greeted promptly and had to wait for the three staff members at the host stand to finish their conversation before even acknowledging us. Finally brought to our table - we were seated at a table for 5, despite only being 3 and...
