Property/ Local Amenities:
Originally the Fairmont Palliser was located ten blocks east of the town centre of Calgary.
However once the hotel was built in 1914 the beauty of the building and the services it offered resulted in the centre of town migrating to around the Palliser.
The historic Stephen Avenue Walk is where a number of these original stores and shops were established.
The buildings, which arose around the Palliser were built in similar sandstone in order to maintain the atmosphere and beauty of the area.
Stephen Avenue Walk is now the vibrant heart of downtown Calgary, with 350 shops and 35 restaurants, pubs and bars.
For evening entertainment the theatre district is located at the east end of the walk.
There are also a number of nightclubs playing a variety of local and international music within a short walk of the hotel.
