MY 2 day Holiday in Calgary was packaged together quite nicely by staying at the Fairmont Palliser. Central to everything I needed. Superb customer service, the business center really helps out for those documents you forget to print off.

Great service, great experience!

Pros: gold floor - free internet and breakfast
The Fairmont Palliser is a great option for your stay in Calgary. Location: right downtown only minutes from anywhere you want to go, shopping, restaurants, C-train, convention center, and much more…. The Palliser is a historic hotel; with a lot of cachet (very nice lobby) but it also means that not all rooms are alike (some smaller, some larger; etc). The hotel offers an indoor pool and a gym (the gym is a fair size and has recent equipments and free weights). The restaurant of the hotel are also to recommend (including room delivery, I have tried a few things myself). Insider’s tip - If you can afford it I would totally recommend booking to Fairmont Gold; it is a few more dollars but it includes a lot: recently renovated room, heated tiles in the bathroom, private check-in, access to the lounge on 12th floor with fantastic views (free breakfast, appetizers, and honor bar), free internet….

Perfect Location

Pros: Close restaurants
Never been to Calgary before and this is a great location to stay at, great pool and hot tub, you can spend an entire day just walking around downtown Calgary which is beautiful, also if your thinking of taking a drive through the mountains to Vancouver, Alamo car rental is just behind this hotel and Alamo doesn't charge a drop-off fee, a great getaway!!

The Fairmont is a beautiful old grand scale hotel. Absolutely charming. Perfect location in downtown. We will definitely be back.

"Upgraded" our room overlooking the train tracks. As this was our first stay here it was a disappointment.

The ornate hotel lobby with its beautiful marble and high ceilings created an attractive milieu. We loved having breakfast and dinner in the beautifully appointed Hawthorn Restaurant just off of the lobby. The music was lovely and the food was divine.
