I will never go back!!!!!!!!!!!! When we first go to our SUITE another guest was ALREADY in our SUITE, then they gave us another that was terrible, could't sleep for 3 nights, THE TRAIN passed right infront of our room!!!!!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel for handicapped persons"
I am handicapped and they upgraded my room when they switched me to a handicap accessible room. April at the front desk was superb in handling my situation.Genuine Expedia guest review
Hotel is historic - so don't expect sleek. For my taste, pretty "grandma" decor . . . but the service was EXCEPTIONAL. Food was AMAZING (room service). Mini bar is super skimpy but who needs a ten dollar Snickers bar anyway?Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Old School Newness"
This was my eleventh stay this year and the hotel has lived up and exceeded expectations every time. Facilities, Food, Service and outstanding.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Most dissapointing hotel stay ever."
We expected a quality hotel of the grand old tradition. HOWEVER, the toilet had a terrible leak, had to pour 15+ cups of water into the tank to flush it. Took hours to get the room warm. Tiny room and even smaller bathroom. Food cost was outrageous, virtually no ammenities. Lobbby is lovely and staff are friendly, but for hotel is way over priced for […] the comfort and quality of the rooms. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Excellent will be backGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Great location, walking distance to everything. Staff very helpful and friendly. I would stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"In the heart of Calgary"
This is a terrific hotel in the perfect location in downtown Calgary... just a block from all the great restaurants and shopping. If your business trip takes you to downtown Calgary, you really can't beat this location. And of course, since it's a Fairmont, the staff are top notch.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Sold on Fairmont Properties"
Lovely, relaxing, great service. Stayed in 8 Fairmont Properties in last 12 days and all were great!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Lobby but otherwise disappointed"
The Fairmont Palliser is in a great location. We rented two rooms, one for ourselves and one for our son and daugh-in-law. The lobby is a wonderful, grand, vintage space, nicely restored and maintained. We used it each day for visiting and for enjoying a wonderful dessert from the Rimrock restaurant. The rooms, however, were disappointing. The beds […] were comfortable but the carpet was stained and unsightly. We could live with the fact that the bathroom was very small and cramped but the tub tile was long overdue for replacement and the sink faucet was undersized and difficult to use. We were very disappointed to discover that the advertised WiFi availability was $14 per day. In this day and age that seems silly and stingy. We were glad to be near Starbucks for free WiFi. The parking, including taxes was $38 per day. Overall: disappointed. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Great hotel, close to street with great restaurants.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great for an extended stay"
Living out a of a hotel for three weeks is difficult for anyone! The Palliser helped to make my stay more comfortable while I was here. The staff were all very friendly, helpful, and attentive. I'd recommend this hotel to anyone. Cleanliness of room/hotel: Excellent. Quality of Service: Excellent. Hotel amenities: Great, however, there were some things […] the hotel didn't have (Such as aspirin. Additionally, the pool was small and shallow and the work out room was also small but for a brief stay I think they're suitable.) Hotel Location: Great Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Change in Rooms"
The rooms are very Old. The carpet is so Old that you dont even want to touch it. The bath tub was old as well. The hotel has a great location they should invest in better rooms. Change the carpets, change the shower(better pressure) change the bath tub.Genuine Expedia guest review
"I would like to come back on a weekend"
Travelling on business. The exercise room was an odd shape but was well equipped. I didn't eat at the hotel because there were so many other options in town. The room was very quiet although the hotel was fairly full. This hotel must have been a gem in its time - a good location to shoot a movie. It is still well kept and charming, but not trendy. You […] must pay for wi-fi. My room had a mini-bar fridge. I don't use those anyway and this one was not cold. Plenty of public space - nice chairs and tables on the lobby level but also the basement and mezzanine levels. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Hidden fees make stay way overpriced"
No public wifi available, internet service and parking very expensive for what you were getting, front desk service was very hit or miss regarding knowledge, courtesy and availability, lobby area stark and uncomfortable with no amenities at all, nothing romantic, functional or cost effective with this stay. Even location was compromised by traffic flow […] and location of mass transit. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Conveniently located in downtown Calgary, we were able to walk to every place we wanted tovisit.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Fairmont Gold is grand"
The entire staff was incredibly helpful and friendly. It is definitely worth upgrading to the Fairmont Gold service level.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great place to visit"
We got a great rate at the gold level which included breakfast and afternoon snacks. All of the people working there were friendly and helpful, especially the ladies in the gold level club room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very nice hotel w/ great location & outstanding service. Would stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel staff was excellent. So was the food. Health center was very good. Excellent location near good restaurants, coffee shops, and wine bars.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great place, great location"
Great place to stay, would definitely come again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Beautiful hotel and room. But we were also very drunk. Unfortunately too drunk to fully enjoy it. Blast. Next time.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not even close"
The bathroom looked like a hostel. mold in bathroom, HomeDepot hardware and fixtures, Caulking around tile instead of grout, basically third world type repairs and materials in the room. Seriously, Im pretty easy going as far as this stuff goes, but it was not even on the same planet as a 3 or 4 star joint, not even close... The lobby was amazing, the […] bar was kind of classic and wore its age great.. the staff was really great,but those rooms were totally disgusting. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"The Fairmont Palliser is a lovely hotel."
It has a wonderful atmosphere, harkening back to the days when travel was more leisurely, usually by train. It is connected to the Telus Convention center by the city's overhead walkway system, but unfortunately it does not go much beyond that. Fortunately, it can be accessed again a few blocks up the street, which is handly. The staff are very helpful […] and courteous, and the food is generally good. I would stay there again.

"Great charater and location!"
Niced and best place to stay in Calgary, period. Great charter and location. I paid extra to upgrade to Gold and it was worth it. I payed less than the on-line price for Gold because I bought it at the desk at check-in and they offer it for less if they have availability.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Calgary's best hotel"
This hotel has the long legend, so the building looks older. However I didn't feel discomfort. Each amenity is very good and the space of rooms is large enough. The quality of furniture in rooms is high level.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Palliser Hotel Experience"
We came for wedding night and when we booked we where told we'd have a 4 star room and a gicuzie tub. When we got their we were told our room had just gone to the last people to come in. When we got to our room it was very disappointing, our room was very small and the tub was smaller than our standard size tub at home. I went down to the front desk […] to see what they could do about it. I was down there for 15 minutes on my wedding night trying to get the hotel staff to do something for me. I finally suggested they upgrade my room and add a complimentary breakfast. To which they complied, however it cost me precious time with my new bride. I'm not sure if we will ever be back.

My job has taken me from the U.S. to Canada, Brazil, Europe, and North Africa and this hotel has the best overall combination of service and facilities. I won't stay in Calgary unless it's the Palliser.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Classic in Calgary"
Got a great rate, so decided to stay here our last night before flying home. Overall a nice hotel, service in Rimrock room started slow.....did get better. Disappointed that on a Saturday night NO entertainment.Genuine Expedia guest review

"The Fairmont Palliser, Calgary, Alberta"
The hotel is historical and close to downtown attractions, restaurants and shopping. Parts of the Palliser, including the lobby and pool area are beautiful. The room, while comfortable, was small and the carpeting was filthy. The bathroom was nice and big. The hotel staff was all very nice and helpful. The cost of parking was also reasonably priced […] and next door to the hotel. Overall, our stay at the Palliser was a positive experience. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"sock in room?"
The staff was wonderful, treated you like royalty helped out in anything they could. The rooms were small and crampy, especially the bathroom. you had to shut the door to even get at the toilet. Found a dirty sock in room? Not sure what that was about, was vacuuming not done? 30 bucks for parking per night was a bit much and a fee for wifi. lobby was […] beautiful, very grandiose! Bed was very comfy, we slept very well. The wet bar was crammed full of stuff and lots of goodies to chose from, but did not dare for the cost. All in all I enjoyed my stay but would not suggest for a fussy crew. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We primarily chose the Fairmont because they were pet friendly and close by to a wedding reception, and we are so glad we stayed here! The Fairmont Palliser is a gorgeous hotel. Our room was clean and had everything we needed. We ate at the Rimrock restaurant in the same building, and it was excellent food and service. The location was fantastic as […] it was only a few minute walk from the wedding reception. And of course there's lots to see downtown! The only thing I was disappointed with was that the WiFi was not free, unless you're a member with Fairmont. Other than that, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely recommend the Fairmont to others :) Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Stayed here recently for my fiances birthday and a night on the town. We got a great deal off Hotels.com so decided to stay at a hotel we usually would not stay at due to it's price. I would stay here again given the same deal however would not pay the typical Fairmont prices. Hotel has amazing food and service but is showing some wear and tear. Can't […] really blame it as it is 100 years old! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Really beautiful hotel, walking to anything in the city. There was some construction noise from the street but nothing the hotel can do about thatGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I arrived at 2AM in the morning and check in was quick and easy. The room that I got did not have any hot water, but the hotel switch my room quickly and without hassle, so I could shower before bed. Pretty awesome.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"very close to everything"
the hotel itself was very nice indeed but although the room price was excellent, the room itself was very pokey and not much room to move around in at all. the curtain was coming off the wall in the bathroom which I thought was very poor for a Fairmont Hotel. Also, there was a lot of noise and chatting going on outside our room at 02.55 in the morning […] which kept me awake for over an hour, I didnt find that acceptable at all, although not the Hotels fault.

"Loved the experience."
I decided on a "Me" weekend and booked the Palliser (cheaper than any other hotel downtown). The room... amazing. First time I have had a hotel room with a kettle as well as a coffee maker, so I could have real tea! I went to Lunchbox Theatre and Vertigo, all without having to go outside or to drive anywhere. During the night I became sick and when […] I called for cleaning, the housekeepers were up to the room within 5 minutes. They remade the bed and asked it they could get me water or anything. An exceptional experience. The only 'bad' thing is the $49 brunch buffet. Really?? Really? Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Not a good experience on our first stay at the Pallisor in down town Calgary. We woke up to Jack hammering above our heads so loud when I called front desk they could not hear me. When manager called, he could not give us any kind of discount this time because we booked thru third party. could give us a small discount off next stay.

We spent one brief night in Calgary. We had a junior suite. It was two seperate rooms. Great service at check in. Only issue was a very small bathroom. Must be the way they built these old hotels.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
