We were blown away
A lovely experience
Nicole and the Palliser team were very flexible in their schedules with us when it came to meetings and food tasting. Our food tasting was such a wonderful experience- from the tasty food to finalizing wedding details, it was an incredibly efficient evening.
Nicole is the middle man when it comes to weddings/events at Palliser. Leading up to and on the day of our wedding, our vendors were in contact with Nicole for various details (loading bay, balcony access, palliser’s decor, change in floor plan, etc). She is very busy with many many events throughout the year but she is very organized and knows the ins and outs of your wedding details and does it all very happily.
Overall the Palliser wedding/ events team is incredibly professional, efficient and a pleasure to work with! You can rest easy knowing that the result will be beautiful and their aim is for you to have a seamless enjoyable process along the way.
We had a few minor issues but overall it was a beautiful day. Our daughter did not receive her child’s meal during dinner service, they “lost” our left over candy from the candy bar and charged me for mini bar items from my room that I did not use.
Despite the issues the day went off without a hitch and they do a great job of thinking of all the little details.

Excellent place to wedding
It was like having an event back home. Hassle free, full of positivity and humble some.
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.
A Perfect Experience
