OK, OK, it has been a bad year for this blog's level of content. I blame a complete lack of time on Jenn's part caused by her school work and my complete lack of time ( and then motivation) stemming from looking after the chores to the extent I do and practicing law full time.
So to finish off the reviews I started in August - Palliser Hotel -
You get what you pay for, but you pay a lot.
The beds are great, the bedding is soft and pillows are quality. The public spaces are beautiful and full of grandeur. The location is tremendous, right near everything in Calgary's downtown that you might want to do or see. The rooms are a bit small by modern standards, and the plumbing is a bit retro, but it isn't the worst I have seen.
We didn't try the food, since there were so many other options so close. I'm sure it's lovely.
The service is what you expect at a Fairmont hotel in Canada. Good.
There. The Palliser. Good hotel. Also the pool was nice.
And Jenn and I had a lovely time.
