      Individual guest reviews

      • Excellent location close to everything and the Fairmont Palliser is an absolutley beautiful place in the heart of all things good in Calgary. For the price should be a lot better, the main lobby is impressive, large and functional, the service is efficent, personal and friendly. Room and staff are fabulous, around the pool are impressive.

        Concierge were not really up to date in everything in the city and our first impressions of the building was old. Bathroom had unpleasant "sewer" like odour.
