The Fairmont Palliser, Calgary

4.5

An historic landmark in the heart of Calgary.

With over 100 years of history, The Fairmont Palliser has an old world charm and grandeur. It’s a historic landmark in the heart of Calgary, however it is directly connected to the Calgary Tower and Glenbow Museum by the super-modern Calgary Plus 15 skywalk. In just a few minutes it will seem as if you're passing from the early-20th Century straight into the 21st Century.

The Rimrock, with its leather pillars, original art and heritage fireplace, is a Calgary tradition, and its known as the place that serves best prime rib in town. If you have more of a sweet tooth, don’t miss its indulgent Death By Chocolate buffet every Monday evening. The Oak Room is a classy lounge with a great cocktail menu and food options. The hotel’s Sunday brunch, complete with live piano music, has been called the city’s finest. The Boulevard Club, an exclusive area just for hotel guests has an indoor pool, large whirlpool, large steam room and well-equipped fitness centre.

The rooms and suites have all been renovated to a high standard and they combine the elegance of the hotel's heritage with modern style and facilities. The Fairmont Rooms are modern and comfortable and they have a full or partial view of the city. There are slightly more spacious Deluxe Rooms as well as Fairmont Gold Rooms which come with a range of benefits such as access to an exclusive lounge where a continental breakfast and evening canapés are served.
