vicky vacay deal of the dayTravel Deal for September 17, 2013

The Fairmont Palliser in Calgary has been extending world-famous Western hospitality to guests coming into the city since 1914. Known as a fashionable address fit for heads of state and royalty, the Palliser knows a thing or two about grand style.

In October, the hotel gives guests the chance to experience one of Calgary’s strongest art and fashion show productions by the local non-profit organization, PARK (Promoting Artists Redefining Kulture). The organization presents its most luxurious high-fashion event yet, an evening entitled PARKLUXE. You will receive two VIP tickets when you book a night at the Parkluxe Gold Fashion and Stay Package at the Palliser. The deal is open on stays of Friday, October 4, 2013. The Parkluxe show takes place on Saturday, October 5. And some good advice, pack light as you will need the extra room to carry home your one-of-a-kind designs that can be discovered only in Calgary.

The Parkluxe Gold Package includes:

  • One night accommodation in a Fairmont Gold Room
  • Exclusive Fairmont Gold privileges such as private check-in, personalized concierge, honour bar, complimentary continental executive breakfast and evening hors d’oeuvres. Crowning it all in the newly renovated Penthouse-level Fairmont Gold Lounge, where you can relax and take in the panoramic city skyline view
  • Authentically local welcome amenity
  • Late check-out at 2 p.m.
  • Valet parking
  • Chilled bottle of Moet & Chandon
  • PARKLUXE VIP seating/tickets for 2

If you have already purchased your PARKLUXE tickets, email and use “PARKLUXE GOLD” as the code to reserve a room for $199. Recommends an Excursion to Drumheller

When you’ve got your latest fashion finds, you’ll want to explore outside of the city for some historic discoveries in Dinosaur Valley. Located in and around Drumheller, the Alberta Badlands are a short drive from Calgary and offer a fascinating history, including the chance to unearth fossils of your own, as Contributor Ilona Biro found out.

Biro writes: “Rumbling out of Calgary in our rig, we got our first glimpse of the badlands at Horseshoe Canyon, where the prairie abruptly ends and cracks wide open, exposing steep sandstone canyons. Streaked with the deep red ochre of ironstone, these fast-eroding walls are awash in dinosaur bones, making Alberta’s badlands one of the richest prehistoric bone beds on the planet. A day of rain can wash away enough sandy grit to expose a 65-million-year-old skeleton.”
