Why We Love This Hotel

  • The lobby of this 1914 hotel is adorned with columns and crystal chandeliers
  • Next door to Calgary Tower, near downtown shopping and museums
  • Ritzy amenities include a mosaic-tiled swimming pool, on-site spa and valet service 


Built in 1914, the ornately decorated Fairmont Palliser stands 12 storeys tall and is connected to the Canadian Pacific Railway. Peer out the window of this hotel for views of the Calgary Tower, right next door. The Calgary Telus Convention Centre is connected by a skywalk. The Glenbow Museum is a five-minute walk from the hotel, and Stephen Avenue Walk, where you can find Calgary's only pedestrian mall, is right around the corner. 

Sip cocktails by the fireplace after a meal in the 1920s-inspired Rimrock restaurant or nibble on cucumber sandwiches at high tea, hosted every afternoon. The Oak Room bar and lounge, located in the lobby, is open for lunch, dinner and cozy nightcaps.   

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, a fitness centre and the RnR Wellness Spa. 

Rooms are small, like most century-old hotels, but are elegantly decorated with glass doorknobs, down duvets and classic furniture; some have been recently renovated. Suites have full kitchens and free Wi-Fi is available throughout the CAA 4-Diamond hotel.
