The mod carpeting in the newly renovated rooms puts a fresh spin on the property, built in 1914 as one of Canada’s grand railway hotels.
What we loved Sipping an afternoon cup of tea from the hotel’s signature Margaret’s Hope Darjeeling label, with vanilla scones, served on a white-linen-covered table.
If you only have one night Reserve a table next to the century-old stone fireplace in the Rimrock and bring a date (or small army) to split the monstrous 48-oz Tomahawk for Two steak with housemade chimichurri.
Bonus Take a scenic run on the Elbow River pathway. The two-metre-tall illuminated “Palliser” marquee on the hotel’s rooftop serves as a way-finder.
