We originally had booked the Fairmont Palliser but changed when we read TA reviews mentioning the train noise. The Fairmont is right on the train tracks! Also the Fairmont is ranked 22 on TA and the Hotel Le Germain is 2nd and won the Travelers Choice Awars in 2012!
We checked into our Luxury King room at 1130pm and went right up. The room was a corner room with a comfortable king bed, and spacious bathroom with two sinks,tub and shower. Breakfast is included in the rate. It was a hot and cold buffet with berries , mixed cut fruit,whole fruits, hot oatmeal, cold cereals,toast and bagels,juice,coffee and teas.
If you arrive in Calgary on a Sunday alot of attractions and stores are closed or have limited hours. However with the help of the hotel concierge we walked to the casino, and also had lunch at the revolving restaurant on top of the Calgary Tower.
This hotel has a hip vibe as evidenced by the young crowd gathered at the bar when we checked in.
This hotel is literally across the street from the train stain, with no train noise and no taxi needed to get there if you arrive via the Rocky Mountaineer. However the reservation staff of the Rocky Mountaineer suggests you stay at the Fairmont........we are so glad we didn't!
