This hotel is at an excellent location, close to shops, restaurants, museum, theatre.... has great food and provides superior service. I was in the recently renovated rooms that are very comfortable rooms! My family had a very memorable weekend at this hotel. I absolutely recommend it for both family and business travel. The pool and hot tub are super too!

Had a lovely relaxing time at the Palliser, pretending to be a tourist in my own city. The room may have been a tad on the small side but was very well appointed, cozy and clean with of course the signature comfy Fairmont bed. The staff were all very friendly and accommodating. I would certainly return for another time out...

Location couldn't be bettered as it is right in the centre of downtown with shops and restaurants all around. Our room was huge and very comfortable with a nice cityscape view. We ate in the bar and had a pretty good meal at a reasonable price. The hotel had a bit of an air of faded grandeur in the public...

Spent Christmas day at the Palliser. The rooms are tiny, but then again, you're really only sleeping in them. The pool and hot tub were nice, save for the 15 kids running around and screaming even though the signs all over say it's a "peaceful place." I did enjoy the bathrobes, though they were over bleached and not soft at...

We had the most wonderful experience at the Pallisar. The staff were so accommodating. I happened to mention that it was my husbands birthday and we were seeing each other for the first time in months. The Pallisar upgraded us to a magnificent room free of charge, gave us a happy birthday cake and a bottle of champagne! We would...

This is a beautiful hotel in an old historic building in the heart of downtown, with wonderful staff. Our room was very nice but small. Also the ac did not work and although it was late december and we had the window open it was much too warm, despite the fact that someone came and worked on it. Obviously this...

We ended up staying 2 nights because of Westjet flight cancellations, which is a whole other issue. The hotel it's self is obviously a heritage building that has been redone. Our first night saw a few basic things not in our room such as body wash, shampoo, conditioner, hangers and so on. That is a house keeping problem that I...

Comfortable bed, spacious, well appointed room in the center of the city. Courteous, efficient staff know the right questions to meet your needs. Take advantage of the valet parking, a real value on a winter day to ease check in and check out.
