  • Relaxing stay

    by Toodles4now on 2020-02-17 10:22 am

    The Fairmont Palliser provides a relaxing reprieve from the everyday. The room was clean and comfortable providing us with quiet downtime. The chairs in the room are very comfortable for enjoying a cup of coffee and some reading. The convention centre is right there as are several excellent restaurants. The staff are friendly, professional and helpful. The breakfast in the Hawthorn was also very good

  • Excellent Business Hotel

    The Palliser is well located - next door to the Calgary Tower and around the city center. Rooms are well appointed and service varies from acceptable to good. I opted to add on the lounge experience, it offered reasonable breakfast (including reasonably early opening hours) sweets in the evening, and a reasonable selection of beverages. Service was not good day 1 but improved markedly with a bit more assertiveness. I found the room a bit dated, but reasonably spacious and the bed was very comfortable. The thermostat was not very responsive, and this might be an issue for folks who prefer to sleep in a room that is particularly cool or warm. The housekeeping staff were especially helpful and friendly, the staff at the hotel entrance and reception desk were less helpful but never brusque or rude. Overall I recommend this hotel for any traveler who likes a traditional property, with all the amenities that implies.

  • Dated room

    While a Fairmont room, was disappointed with the bathroom, crack in the tub, extreme low flow shower and one robe for couples room. Pillows were well used and flat. Unfortunately did not have the fit kit in-room either. On their own, not a big deal, however all together made for a very "unFairmont" type experience.

  • Excellent Staff and Excellent Stay

    I stayed two nights at the Fairmont just a few weeks before Christmas. I've got a soft spot for unique, classic hotels with charm. Having spent a significant amount of time at The Algonquin Resort (formally a Fairmont) during Christmas time, I had high expectations for this grand old hotel. The Palliser did not disappoint. The Christmas trees and decorations along with the lights were perfect and exactly what I was hoping for.
    The Staff at the hotel were excellent. I arrived at the hotel at approximately 11AM, was greeted by the valet and brought to the front desk. I was given an upgraded room right away and the lady working at the front desk helped locate my old Fairmount rewards ID (I had trouble trying to change it over to the new Accor rewards).

    The room was King Room with a view of the Calgary Tower. The room was clean, well appointed for the room type and price. Elevators were fast.

    These old hotels have such great history, Fairmont has done a good job of keeping its old world charm; even the little details like the mail slots at the elevator banks on each floor are neat and only found in that era hotel across Canada. If you'd like to learn a little history about the hotel, there is a small display with pictures, information and receipts from the original construction of the hotel, on the pool/gym/spa level.

    I visited the gym both days, it was small however, adequate. It's likely best to visit during off peak times.

    The lobby and restaurant bar area are great, busy, yet inviting and the bartender was friendly and attentive.

    The valet was excellent (I wrote down the valets name, however lost the paper at some point when I arrived home). The gentleman working Dec 3rd & 4th during the day was extremely attentive, he addressed me by name and offered water each time I picked up my vehicle. They moved quickly each morning to bring it up and have it ready when I walked outside. Small things like addressing me by my name and offering water may seem insignificant to most or even a bit shallow, however it makes you feel like they care about your business and care about your comfort during your stay and that makes up for the little mistake/issues that may arise when staying at an older property like this.
