NileGuide Expert Says:
This hotel has a great location - just down the block from the convention center, Calgary Tower, shopping and Stephen Ave. Fairmont quality is always top notch. And, I've always enjoyed the 'train museum'.

The Palliser Hotel is Calgary's oldest luxury property, dating back to 1914. Built to accommodate the westward-bound upper-class, many of whom settled in the nearby community of Mt. Royal, it stands as Calgary's Edwardian masterpiece. It is near to many of Calgary's sights, such as the Calgary Tower and Olympic Plaza. The Rimrock Dining Room is elegant, with vaulted ceilings and a giant fireplace, and the lounge bar is fit for oil tycoons, cattle barons, or anyone else who would like to enjoy the upscale atmosphere. The lobby is beautifully decorated with marble floors and columns and gleaming chandeliers. Recent renovations have given a face-lift to the upholstery. The Palliser is in beautiful condition.
The building's E-shape was designed to provide outside lighting to every room and to create the appearance of three adjacent towers.
