Stayed in the Palliser for only one night at the end of our Canadian Holiday prior to flying home. Chose the hotel because it was ideally located next to the Rail Station used by the Rocky Mountaineer.
As our 3rd Fairmont Hotel on our trip we were not disapponted. On arrival around 10.00pm we were greeted by friendly and helpful staff who confirmed our suitcases from the train had already been taken to our rooms. The lobby / reception area is very impressive as are a number of former CPR hotels.
Our room and bathroom were excellent, and would have been suitable for a longer stay. The breakfast was similar to that experienced in other Fairmont Hotels, good quality and well presented, although rather expensive especially the buffet.(may be due to the poor exchange rate Canadian Dollar / British Pound)
The hotel is ideally situated in downtown Calgary for a holiday exploring the city.
Would recommend this hotel as perfectly located for an overnight stay at the end of a Rocky Mountaineer trip as it can even be accessed direct from the Rail Station.More
