Poised splendidly on 9th Avenue, Fairmont Palliser catches the eye with its century-old façade and red-carpeted steps, inviting you to step inside and experience this historic hotel for yourself.
It was built in 1914 in a Commercial Edwardian style, with a Renaissance Revival lobby that is today filled with opulent touches like a grand piano, to set the scene.
It comes as no surprise that Fairmont Palliser is a popular choice for royals and visiting heads of state!
The staff treat each and every guest like monarchs, however, ensuring that your needs are met from start to finish; there’s actually a hotline, The Royal Service, that you can call from your room and your wishes will be met – even if it’s a burning question you may have about the city’s history. Impeccable service is something you’ll also encounter in the Fairmont’s Rimrock Restaurant and Oak Room Bar, serving what is said to be the best Old Fashioned in the city – among other heady cocktails.
Another superb string to the Fairmont Palliser’s bow is The Boulevard Club, a health spa with indoor pool, hot tub, steam room and a gym that’s open 24 hours a day. If all this doesn’t quite cut it, then the Gold Level benefits will – upgrade to this and you’ll get exclusive access to the Gold Lounge, for complimentary breakfast buffets each morning, as well as drinks and light bites every evening.
With around 400 rooms and suites and the option to upgrade to Gold class guestrooms, accommodation at Fairmont Palliser offers something for everyone. There are mod-cons like minibars, tea and coffee making facilities, bathrobes and cable TV, though if you book a higher-level option you can also enjoy extra perks like humidifiers, Keurig or Nespresso machines and Bose sound systems. If you seek additional space, a suite would be the ideal choice, with a separate living area and, in the Heritage Suite, the possibility to interconnect – great if travelling with the family. This suite also possesses a kitchenette, dining area and feature fireplace, but if it’s a slice of history you’re after, opt for the Royal Suite, where Queen Elizabeth II stayed in 1990.
