About Fairmont Palliser

Fairmont Palliser is a historic hotel wedding venue located in Calgary, Alberta. Since 1914, the hotel has been a local monument and has welcomed celebrities, politicians, and other distinguished guests. Weddings held here are sure to be a magical affair draped in elegance and timeless sophistication.

Facilities and Capacity

This venue boasts a diverse spectrum of event spaces, ranging from an opulent ballroom to several exquisite meeting rooms. Our newest space is the Oak Room, renovated in 2019 and featuring vintage modern decor and lighting, in soft grey tones. This space will seat up to 95 guests and is located off the main lobby, with its own private foyer and washrooms. 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.

Services Offered

Fairmont Palliser strives to ensure every couple has a memorable experience holding their nuptials here. They offer the services of their wedding manager who acts as the main point of contact for soon-to-be newlyweds. Their attentive, personalized advice is invaluable for those organizing an event here. Included in the package is catering, prepared lovingly by the hotel’s culinary team. Couples can enjoy a complimentary tasting to create their custom menu. Additionally, the in-house pastry chef crafts delightful wedding cakes to complete the dining experience.

Accommodation

If your wedding has more than 50 guests in attendance, you will receive a complimentary wedding night stay in a Junior Suite. Featuring 400 square feet of space, this room is ideal for relaxing after a busy day. There are 407 guest rooms available, providing ample space for your out-of-town guests to stay during your event. With a variety of comfortable guest rooms and suites to choose from, the hotel has something to suit everyone from families to couples.

    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!

    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.
