I had an excellent stay at the Hotel Macdonald on a work trip to Edmonton last week in the depths of February. The room was absolutely fantastic (702) – great bed, great linens, beautiful lighting and I loved that it was tucked up under the sloping roof with dormers looking down

My many stays at the Edmonton Fairmont MacDonald have been handled always with the utmost decorum. I’m very glad to hear of their quick and complete response to any issues that had arisen during your stay, Frank. Not surprised, to say the least...as on many occasions they went above and beyond the call of duty on our behalf. One time, as I checked in for one of my daughter’s 16th birthday stays, I had somehow misjudged the amount of our stay, and even though I did not expect anything to be done about it...when I checked out, it had been adjusted!!! That’s why I’ve kept going back. My mistake only happened that one time, yet they always seem to have that extra smile and excellent service beyond my expectations.
