This is the hotel we prefer to stay at when we are in Calgary. It has been so well looked after over it's 102 years and the staff are so proud to work here, that it shows in their professional conduct.

As usual, as great experience, I'm a bit of a thrifty traveler, so I stay there, but eat elsewhere. The location is great for shows/concerts and walking down Stephen Ave. The Calgary Tower is right there and lots of good restaurants.

The rooms are small but nicely laid out, bed is very comfortable and very quiet considering the location is right downtown with lots of construction around the hotel. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly. We'll definitely stay there again.

We booked the hotel to celebrate our anniversary and booked the Rejuvenation Spa Couples Package. It includes the room, massage (1 hour each) and valet parking - an excellent deal!

We stayed in this hotel while in Calgary for the ice hockey. It's in a great location in close location to shops and restaurants. Staff are ultra helpful and happy to give recommendations. Rooms are recently renovated and extremely comfortable. Will stay there again.

This hotel is a great downtown location. I was shocked that wifi and/or breakfast wasn't for the price of the hotel. The rooms are small but to be expected with such a older style hotel. The valet parking was excellent and highly recommended.

This was our fifth stay at the Palliser and third stay on their Gold Floor. Since we last stayed there they have a beautiful new lounge on the Gold Floor. The room was spacious, clean and quiet and the beds and bedding were fantastic! We arrived late after a very long day of travel so the lounge was closed, but...

Reviewed 11 March 2016

It wasn't accepted as payment for our stay. It's their policy. The manager of the hotel was just too constrained by company policy to make this stay a positively memorable experience. It was a distraction from what would have been a nice stay.
