Old school hotel with grand lobby May 29, 2009
We spent one night at the Fairmont Palliser in Calgary. This was an older hotel with a grand lobby but old and outdated rooms. We had been upgraded yet again to a Jr. Suite; a huge room but the bathroom was tiny in contrast. I went to go find a place to park; it being Friday evening (8PM) I hoped to find an open parking spot. It took awhile as many of the roads around the Palliser were blocked or closed due to construction, I had to drive in circles or 4-5 blocks out of my way to get to the next street. I finally found a spot only a block away from the hotel.

The Palliser is in a great place in the center of Calgary within walking distance of several restaurants. There is a parking garage attached to the hotel.
