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

Beautiful Hotel, grand lobby, nice lobby bar and the restaurant was lovely. Check-in was short on details. restaurant staff was fabulous, a nice team approach to serving and they did it well.

Would be nice to have more of a sitting space for a couples experience, to sit at and have a glass of wine... or two:)

Great value on this deal, which included valet parking and $100 restaurant/lounge credit. Historic, classy hotel with a nicely updated restaurant and lounge. Rooms are still in good shape, although starting to show a little wear.

We stayed at the Palliser while attending a wedding downtown. Love the new renovations to the lobby and the restaurant, although was sorry to see the Oak Room is no longer there. Always appreciate the service and ambience of this hotel.

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.
