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
