Prompt, pleasant, and professionally greeted on arrival. Requested quiet room away from elevator, ice machine & was well pleased with room and location. Very comfortable bed, however room "cozy" in size compared to some Fairmont properties. Spa experiences were amazing! Very accommodating in availability and wonderful quiet surroundings and services.

Upon arrival at the hotel, it is best to valet park, Pull up right in front and one of the great staff will help you out with your car and luggage....

I hosted a bridal shower here for my best friend on April 9, 2017. We had 14 guests attend this event, and we were all surprised when we were presented with the bill at the end of the service. We saw that we were charged $45 each for the Afternoon Tea, when the tea is advertised as $35 online. Our...

Dear Sydney T, Thank you very much for taking the time to share this review. I was very disappointed to read of your Afternoon Tea experience with us. It is clear that we did not meet your expectations, and for this I apologize. I regret that the menu you found online was for a tea service that was offered in...

We stayed at the Fairmont Palliser for 3 nights over Easter with our 2 kids (3 years and 5 years) and it was wonderful. Staying at this hotel is a real treat. Staff went out of their way to make everything perfect for us. We had a one bedroom king suite with a beautiful and modern new kitchen on a...

Having stayed here a number of times for work the last two years, service is always great and the food is wonderful. Things I wish could be changed: more water in the toilets (often not fully flushed clean), massage prices are very high for decent service but not worth that much, no free wifi - one of few hotels still...

This hotel is stunning. The architecture is gorgeous and visitors get a real sense of the history of the building. Our room was right next to the Calgary tower, which offered a beautiful light show at night. The management was so kind to my wife and I, offering us complimentary items due to our personal celebrations. This hotel is the...

Stayed here recently for a work conference across the street at the Telus Convention Centre.

I am a Fairmont supporter and try to stay at their hotel whenever possible. My previous Fairmont experiences include Royal York (Toronto), Chateau Whistler, Empress (Victoria), Pacific Rim (Vancouver), Fairmont Waterfront, Fairmont Baff Springs and Queen Elizabeth (Montreal). The Palliser in Calgary gave me the worst experience. The service is impeccable and the room was newly renovated. My issue is...
