                                  • 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.

                                  • Reasonable stay at the palliser, excellent service and the junior suite was very nice indeed.

                                    The staff's attitude could not be better, the rooms could not better and the location is perfect.

                                  • Location was excellent and staff in general were very friendly. The room was huge.

                                    Not a quiet hotel.

                                  • Great location and good value. All the staff were friendly, the room was spacious and comfortable and more importantly.

                                    Not an ideal business hotel.

                                  • Helpful to strangers of the city, very warm welcome and the staff were without exception polite, friendly. Our room was well appointed.

                                    Hotel is large and impersonal.

                                  • Wonderful location and great time to be had by all ages at the oak room lounge at the palliser, spa facilities were very nice as was the overall first impression upon entering the hotel, the staff members were very helpful. Water pressure was fine.

                                    Poor customer service.
