A royal choice for elegant, stunning luxury in downtown Calgary
Stay in the lap of luxury at the gorgeous Fairmont Palliser, the hotel of choice for royalty, celebrities and heads of state visiting Calgary. This heritage building is in the heart of the city, within walking distance of many of the most popular arts and culture venues, restaurants, and boutiques. Within the hotel, find superb amenities like a state-of-the-art health club and the equally impressive business center. Save time for a meal at the Rimrock, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner that will not disappoint (reservations highly recommended).
Highlights
  • Baby-sitting arrangements available
  • Top choice for corporate events in Calgary
  • Live jazz in the Oak Room
Rooms
All guest rooms and suites in the Fairmont Palliser are stunning with traditional decor and the best amenities. Plush bathrobes, down duvets and operable windows are standard in every room. Upgraded amenities and additional space are available with suites. Reserve the heritage suite for a particularly beautiful space. But for true pampering and utter indulgence, reserve the royal suite on the Gold Floor where Queen Elizabeth II stayed in 1990, or the Fairmont gold room, a hotel within a hotel. Internet access is available throughout the Fairmont Palliser (fees apply in some cases).
Features
Infused with elegance, the Fairmont Palliser is the perfect choice for business and leisure travelers looking for a distinctive hotel in the city center of Calgary. Only the finest ingredients are used in the dishes at the Rimrock, where culinary excellence is the standard. Unwind with friends and colleagues in the classy Oak Room, the only venue in the city offering live jazz. Stay fit in style with exclusive access to the Boulevard Club, the on-site fitness center and spa. There is a reason that the Fairmont Palliser is one of the top choices in Calgary for corporate events. Host a memorable meeting in one of the grand conference rooms and let the hotel staff take care of all the important details.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

The hotel is a short walk to fine restaurant which was helpful on the night that we stayed since the overnight temperature in Calgary dipped to -30C.

Historic in Calgary

The Fairmont Palliser is simply stunning. This is the third hotel I've tried during my monthly trip to Calgary. I won't stay anywhere else now. The lobby is gorgeous, the rooms while a bit small were quaint and charming. The workout room was just fine with 3 treadmills, 3 ellipticals, a selection of free weights and other workout essentials. The room service menu offered a nice variety of items. My room was quiet and the bed very comfortable. There is a Starbucks within a 2 block walk along with a coffee maker in the room. Wish they didn't charge for wifi in the room however.

Great hotel - would go back again

I've stayed at a couple of hotels in Calgary - Hyatt, Westin and now the Fairmont. I would say the service ranks high up there along with the Hyatt staff...friendly & responds in a timely manner if you have any requests. I got a suite at the Fairmont and it was a nice sized room with a shower stall and a separate jacuzzi. One thing great about the Fairmont is that even though you book the room through a third party discount site like [...], your stay still counts towards their loyalty program which is free to sign up for. Sign up for Fairmont's loyalty program for free and you get free local calls and free internet ;) That's much better than the Westin Calgary for example because the Westin will not count any points for their loyalty program if you book the room through a third party website and also, you have to pay for local calls and internet at the Westin. I would say the only thing I didn't really like about this hotel was that the fitness centre was lacking (only three treadmills and the room needed some air conditioning for sure).

Nightlife tip: Short walk from hotel

There is a good night club called the Vinyl Retro Lounge and it's around the block literally - at 1st street and 10 avenue (right behind the Fairmont Palliser).
