I’ve been really fortunate with the people I meet, the place I go, and the things that happen during all my visits anywhere. This particular visit to Fairmont Palliser in downtown Calgary was truly one of my most memorable stays ever! I got to experience their “Hotel within a Hotel” with Fairmont Gold.
We got an upgraded room to their Fairmont Gold Room that offered a king bed, seating area, desk and and a few extra special privileges while being a guest during this stay. Once we got into our room, we noticed it’s the biggest room we’ve ever stayed in at the Palliser, so we were really excited. The large king bed was front and center which is always a delight! Bedtime is one of my favourite times!
The bathroom was also bigger and offered more bathroom amenities, which is so nice as it’s really rare to have amenities such as cotton swabs, mouthwash, and shoe shine cloth!
My favourite part about the stay was experiencing the Fairmont Lounge, which is on their Penthouse floor which offers complimentary breakfast and hor d’oeuvres during the evening. We made an effort to be at both and the food is fantastic! It’s a great place to sit and read, with a nice snack, or just some quiet time.
The stay was perfect and now we consider upgrading to Fairmont Gold when we know we’re going to be in the hotel more for future stays.
Be sure to watch the room walk through as it was a fantastic room we had!
I have always loved the Fairmont Hotels and when I saw a special for the Fairmont Palliser, I knew it wasn’t an offer I was about to turn down or miss! This hotel is historic and beautiful, and it’s located right next to the Calgary Tower. The only thing I found was a little odd was it’s check in situation where you just parallel park on the side of the road, or in some cases the lane into traffic.
Once we were inside, we were greeted with friendly faces, courteous staff and a beautiful lobby! The lobby was absolutely gorgeous and I was excited I got to be there! Check in staff was quick and efficient and we found where we needed to go really quickly!
We took the elevators up to the room and the room was beautiful! It’s updated with art from antique postcards of the hotel in the bathroom and everything was tastefully decorated. The room was spacious and offers your typical in-room amenities such as a mini bar, water kettle and even a kurig coffee maker!
The bathroom was really quite beautiful as well, with tons of space and counter top! There’s even a hair dryer in the bathroom and beautiful Fairmont robes for you to use during your stay!
The bathroom amenities was a scent developed by themselves which was nice and unique to them! I love that they spend the time and effort thinking about details like that!
As we left the room, I had to go visit the hot tub and pool area! I love relaxing and winding down a day for a quick soak in hot tubs! This hotel has a beautiful pool that’s located inside the spa, but the pool is for guests – you just need your room key to get in!
The experience here was unforgettable! I loved every minute of my stay and I sure hope to be back again some day! To see the room walk-through that we stayed in, check the clip below!
