    The experience at the Fairmont Palliser was pleasant. You are close to a large variety of restaurants and eventful streets. It was nice to unwind in the Deluxe King room, however it should be noted that at the 10th floor, it seems that it takes a while for the water to get hot - so you might need to let the shower run for a couple of minutes before having a warm shower. The view was decent and it is true that you may be disturbed by the sound of the trains nearby if you have your window cracked open - this however was not a problem for us. It was nice for the staff to give a little bag that had sanitizer, gloves, a sanitizing wipe, and a mask at the front desk. The pool and steam room was clean and functional. The gym had adequate equipment and sanitizing measures, though I would suggest having more spray bottles in the case of having more than 2 people there. I didn't like that the internet was very slow - I believe that it should be a standard to provide excellent wifi for guests. The TV also did not cast (Netflix) properly - it did not work with the multiple devices I had attempted several times having been equipped with knowledge from previous experiences with the software from other hotels. All in all, I think that I would stay at the Fairmont Palliser again, hoping that they would upgrade their internet issue and have their TVs software maintained properly.

    Great stau

    We only stayed one night but it was excellent! The pool and hot tub are very appealing to the eye and very clean. The room had a queen bed and an amazing view of the Calgary tower (at the 10th floor). The bathroom was marble, very clean and detailed. Check in was very easy and fast. Only major downside was no free Wi-Fi.

    Disappointing

    We stayed here on the final part of our trip. We stayed at other Fairmonts which were good, but this one, not so much. Hotel is in a great location, but our room had no view (a view of scaffolding, delightful), one of the bedside table lamps didn't work and there were a lot of wires poking out from the sockets by the bed, which didn't look safe or particularly nice. In retrospect, we wished we'd said something at the time as it was a bit of a downer, on what was an otherwise fantastic trip. Love Calgary and hope to come back sometime, but won't be using this Fairmont.

    Centrally located, amazing lobby, beautiful pool, and fantastic bed and linens. Pamper yourself and enjoy a good night’s sleep! Despite updates to the rooms, the bathtub was surprisingly due for some renovations (rust stains and chips throughout).

    We stayed here during the Calgary stampede which was perfect due to its location conveniently located in the heart of downtown Calgary. The overall hotel itself was beautiful, the furniture and architecture gave off a very fancy vibe. The rooms were newly updated, gym and pool was fantastic, and the bar was perfect place to grab some drinks. I have stayed at many Fairmonts and this one definitely lived up to the hype I have been giving this hotel chain.
