Built in 1914, the ornately decorated Fairmont Palliser is Calgary’s premier hotel. This historic hotel is conveniently situated in the heart of the city’s business and financial district and offers distinctive accommodations. Fairmont Palliser boasts great views of the Calgary Tower and is steps away from the city’s most exciting retail shopping, arts, culture and entertainment venues, including Stephen Avenue, where you can find Calgary’s only pedestrian mall.

A mosaic tiled indoor swimming pool sits next to the large hot tub in the Boulevard Club. The health club is also home to a sauna, fully equipped fitness centre and the RnR Wellness Spa.

Hawthorn Dining Room and Bar is the latest addition to the hotel and features eloquent interiors, a locally-sourced menu and a lively lobby bar, paying homage to the Palliser’s rich history in a modern setting.

Each of the guest rooms are elegantly decorated with glass doorknobs, down duvets and classic furniture. Wi-Fi is available throughout the CAA 4-Diamond hotel.

We really enjoyed our stay and feel the value we got for our package was really good.

We enjoyed the spa/pool area and found the facilities very nice but the room outside the steam room smelled like dirty feet. The signs on the wall also mentioned a sauna (it was listed with a different temperature than the steam room) but we were unable to find it and even staff didn't seem to know of a sauna.

Always love staying here! First time visiting since change from the Oak Room (which we loved) to the Hawthorn. Valentine's Day dinner was sooooo good. Restaurant is high end and expensive. We paid $21 for a cocktail and $19 for a 9 oz glass of wine. Had $100 credit for restaurant and free valet and still cost $500 for one night. But, you get what you pay for!!👍

Great rate to experience the old hotel.
Other Comments
The lobby bar seems to be a reservation only and lacks the ambiance of the old lounge and seems inaccessible at times for a casual walk in.

We have stayed at all the Fairmont hotels in Alberta. This one ranks the lowest. The rooms were sub par standard even compared to a Holiday Inn. They were not renovated and the wear is showing. The first night it was so hot we did not sleep. We ended up sleeping with the window open in the middle of winter. The buffet breakfast is expensive for what you get compared to other Fairmont.

All the Palliser Hotel staff made our stay a very special Valentine’s Day celebration. The Chef in the Hawthorne Dining Room had a great special menu for the occasion and we both enjoyed it.

We would definitely stay at the Fairmont Palliser for other special occasions!

The Staff, service, rooms, ambience , location all well above board, fantastic. Their fine dining is NOT fine dining, so it was very disappointing to come to this beautiful 1919 refurbished hotel which used to have the Best Restaurant in Calgary from its opening until the 2000’s, to sit in an ugly cafeteria with a poor menu & lack luster food. This is so sad for me as I remember coming for dinner & how stunning & perfect it used to be! Still recommend the hotel, go out for dinner, super restaurants around Calgary.
