1 bedroom suites are worn and dated. Service amenities are sub par for a fairmont. Spa does not return phone calls Front desk manager did not return phone calls. Bed sheets stained and had to ask for replacement sheets but housekeeping wasn’t available. Had to sleep in an adjoining room. Asked for champagne glasses and was brought two different glasses. Disappointed with Fairmont Palliser.

Liked: Cleanliness, amenities
We booked a one bedroom suite and it felt like we were in a junior suite. The room was a lot smaller than the photo and had much different furniture than the photo. It was not very grand and was somewhat cramped. The price was very high given the current situation and given the room. Also we were on the 2nd floor and the place was empty. It would have been nice to be on a higher floor. Service was great but there was no one there to greet us outside on arrival like previously. Food and drinks in the lounge were overpriced. I was just really disappointed in the size and quality of the room for the price (almost $600) and the bathroom was very cramped.
