We stopped at this hotel for couple of nights on our way home after having our wedding at another fairmont property. The property was very beautiful, we were upgraded for the stay, and the family enjoyed the location and services. It is a walking distance to everything. the breakfast was ok, and some of the hallways might need some updating....

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 29 November 2016

Sorry the review is a while coming but I keep finding different things to comment on on Trip Advisor and this hotel somehow got missed! My husband and I from the UK have visited Canada several times; the most recent a few years ago and we always stay at Fairmont Hotels during our trips and on the Gold Floor. As...

Thank you so much for this glowing review! We are so pleased your stay on Fairmont Gold was "perfect"! As you saw, we love getting into the "western spirit" during the Calgary Stampede, and we're glad you enjoyed it too! Yahoo! Sincerely, Natalie Wert Executive Assistant

this place was absolutely beautiful and I was staying here for a wedding from BC. What a stay. The rooms were simply amazing and the location is perfect. I would love to come back here in the summer. It was a bit chilly. Ha. Otherwise I have no complaints it is worth the money. although it is expensive.

Although my husband and I only spent one night at the Palliser, it was so pleasant that it felt like we had been on a mini vacation. The staff were extremely friendly, attentive, and accommodating. The room was clean, comfortable and relaxing.

Another gorgeous Fairmont hotel. This is my 2nd time staying at this hotel for a business conference. Very well appointed rooms. Super clean and the beds and pillows are so comfy. The view from the room wasn't great, being downtown, you looking at another big building, but that's what you'd expect in downtown Calgary. The valets, check in staff, food...

I stayed at the Fairmont while on a quick business trip to Calgary. The hotel has history and a really nice look. I got a newly renovated room with a king bed that was clean and comfortable. The facilities were excellent and there was a convenient Starbuck in the basement. The wifi is not free and they wanted $14.95 /...

Stayed here on our first night in Calgary. The hotel itself is beautiful, easy to get to from the airport. We spent the evening in the spa (highly recommend the steam room - especially after the long flight) after which we had some lovely canapés in the lounge on the top floor. Breakfast was delicious offering a wide variety of...

The perfect hotel after a long flight from England. Our room was fabulous - so big and beautifully decorated. The beds were so comfy I fell asleep in minutes. Our breakfast was just perfect with an excellent choice to suit everyone but don't miss out on the omelette. - probably the best I have ever tasted, cooked to order by...

Came here with 2 other friends. The hotel itself is absolutely beautiful. Lobby is big and inviting. Starbucks is close by. Valet parking was appreciated and made for easy check in. Rooms are very small and in my opinion no hotel should still have double beds. Nonetheless, the mattress themselves were comfortable. Would stay here again but only if I...

We chose to stay at the Palliser because we have never been disappointed at any of the Fairmont locations. From check in to check every detail was looked after impeccably! I was our first visit to the Palliser but it won't be our last
