How it Ranks: The Fairmont Palliser ranks #4 out of 78 Calgary Hotels based on an evaluation of expert ratings and awards, as well as user reviews.

Our Take: Previous visitors can't help but marvel at the Fairmont Palliser's stunning lobby; its Renaissance Revival marble columns and ornate furniture speak to the hotel's storied, 100-year history. The old-school charm continues in the Fairmont's 407 guest rooms, but they still feature modern amenities like high-speed Internet access (for a fee), minibars and bathrobes. For a taste of Calgary class, make a reservation at The Rimrock, the Fairmont's on-site restaurant where tooled leather pillars, a roaring fireplace and divine cuisine deliver a memorable dining experience. Past patrons rave about The Rimrock's steak entrees and its prompt service. Stop in at The Oak Room after your meal for an elegant martini or single malt (paired with live jazz, naturally). And as if that weren't enough refinement, The Boulevard Club's indoor pool and 12-person whirlpool are lined with potted palms, intricately tiled floors and white columns reminiscent of the mansion in the film, "The Great Gatsby." If you're craving even more relaxation, book an appointment at RnR Wellness THE SPA or venture to The Boulevard Club health club. You can find this Fairmont hotel on Ninth Avenue Southwest in downtown Calgary. Members of the Fairmont's President's Club can earn and redeem rewards for staying at this property.
