The Crystal Ballroom, the hotel’s largest and most extravagant function room, features old-world splendour and lavish detail. Decorated with 13 intricate chandeliers and soft gold and blue tones, this ballroom is fit for royalty. Here, you can celebrate your journey with your new spouse with up to 320 loved ones. When you book the Crystal Ballroom, you’ll also have access to the Oval Room, which gives guests additional space to mingle. The hand-painted murals of the Alberta Room lend an air of refinement to events held here. This room can accommodate 160 guests for a seated reception. Smaller function rooms, like the Tudor and Spanish Rooms, are ideal for intimate gatherings or even as get-ready rooms for the wedding party.

Excellent support provided by Michelle and Gail and their staff in organizing and hosting Saad & Shania's Walima/ post Wedding Event on Saturday August 18, 2020. We can't say enough about the location, the atmosphere, and of course the food. It was a wonderful experience! I must say that Fairmont Pallister did a phenomenal job organizing our event. Everyone had a fun blast! and still talking about how wonderful food and organized evening was and truly being treated as royalty by Palliser!
We can only imagine what a huge effort it took for Michelle, Gail and their team to make our event wonderful in every way in today's unpredictable time.Sent on 18/01/2021

It was like having an event back home. Hassle free, full of positivity and humble some.
If I get another chance I would have another event with Michele. She’s really an amazing person with all her ears and heart. Seemed liked I was the only one mattered to her... we were so honored! The place is so positive, warm and welcoming!Sent on 18/01/2021

We were blown away
The Fairmont went above and beyond to make our entire booking block feel welcome and comfortable. My husband and I did our first look in the oval room there and they made sure everything was set up for us. We also had the pleasure of getting ready in two of their heritage suites which are absolutely amazing. The service was impeccable and we can’t recommend them highly enough. We will definitely be returning. There was not one downside to booking our wedding accommodations at the Fairmont Palliser.Sent on 22/08/2019
