Me and my wife stayed at the Pallisar for our 10yr Wedding Anniversary. The Palliser's check in desk is super quick and easy; and the decor in the lobby is spectacular - these hestoric building really make for a great stay.

This sand stone lovely hotel in downtown Calgary is an amazing place to stay if you are a visitor or a Calgaiarn. You feel like royalty once you walk through the font doors. The lobby is outstanding and the pool...wow the roof has this gorgeous blue colour that you get swept up in. The staff are extremely attentive.

Sorry I am so late. We stayed here in 2013, but the good memories linger on. When in Canada the Fairmont Hotel group is the choice to make.

Nice, stately hotel with great lobby and room décor. Great staff - fabulous lobby lounge - and excellent housekeeping standards. I would stay there again and recommend it. It's also in an ideal location - close to Stephen Ave restaurants and The Core shopping mall.
