We'd had such a good time staying at Fairmont hotels in the Rockies that it was very disappointing to find that the Fairmont in Calgary did not compare. Sadly it was at the end of our trip and so probably we noticed it more after our great experiences at the other hotels. The hotel is gloomy and reception were not particularly friendly. The restaurant and bar were undergoing refurb and so there was some alternative arrangement for eating downstairs but nowhere to relax and chat over a drink. The rooms were fine but small. The hotel is linked to other buildings in Calgary via the +15 bridge system but didn't tell us anything about that, we discovered it ourselves. If we revisit Calgary would try to find a more modern hotel. The focus seems to be on corporate events and small conferences.

I love Fairmont properties! Came for one night for my birthday, went to the spa. All was well until cocktails and dinner. *They have closed the bar AND restaurant for renovations. They have a make shift dinning area in the basement. Not near the usual experience we’ve had in the past. I get it, you have to renovate sometimes, but nothing was said on their website. I do feel a bit cheated, it’s not like the stay was any less expensive. We were told the renovations will be done early 2019. Just a word of warning.
