“Nicely updated Fairmont”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 March 2014

As I have come to expect, the service was phenomenal as is with Fairmonts I have experienced in the past for work travel. My room here was very large and updated. It was a treat certainly. The location was fine (I had to take cabs most places anyway).
All in all, a nice property.

My girlfriend and I spent a night here on Valentine's Day weekend and boy were we impressed! Upon arriving at the hotel we were greeted by the super friendly valet staff who were super courteous and took great care of our vehicle from the time we dropped it off to the time we picked it up on departure. We were greeted by the super friendly desk staff who informed us we got a free upgrade to the Deluxe Signature King Room. Pretty sweet way to kick off our stay! We got to our room and we were blown away; the room was huge! Along with the massive closet and spacious bathroom, this room has to go down as one of the best hotel rooms I've ever had. The view of the river valley from our room was super gorgeous. The bed was comfy and made for a relaxing sleep. Breakfast in the morning in the Harvest Room was really good with lots of options. The staff were super friendly the whole time and we were definitely not disappointed. If you want to splurge on a romantic weekend and feel like a celebrity, this is the place to do it in Edmonton!

We went there for a week and the rooms are very clean, the porters were lovely even the dog was great, not very impress with the ladies in resection tho, they do not seem to know much of what is going on around them.

My wife and I recently stayed there for one night to celebrate our anniversary. I had contemplated a trip out of town but decided that it might be good to stay local and save the hassle of traveling and the time involved. We were not disappointed at all by the decision. The room was great, the service was great, the amenities were very good, and the hospitality was amazing. I can't say enough about the ambiance, service and friendliness of the hotel lounge. If you're thinking of where to stay for a night, just to get away without actually leaving town, staying at the Hotel Mac is an option worth considering...we'll be doing it again.

Even though we live in Edmonton, I decided to take my wife out for a romantic night out for our 20th wedding anniversary. I could not think of a better place than the Hotel MacDonald. We were not disappointed! The service was second to none. The architecture was beautiful and the rooms were well appointed and extremely quiet (mid week). The food was fantastic as well. Overall, a wonderful place to spend a romantic night or two.

Room Tip: We took a King suite with a river valley view and were not disappointed.

What a beautiful hotel! The family (2 adults, one 4 yo) Stayed here before Christmas. The Hotel was very nicely decorated. Waling in to the lobby we were all quite stunned by the high ceilings and heavy trims. Loved the elevators. We had a basic room, facing the city. The room definitely had historic charm. Sure, there are some wear issues but honestly, I think it ads to the ambiance of staying in a place like this. If you want a modern boutique hotel, this is not for you! If you are looking for a historic architecture heavy comfortable stay, this is a great choice.

This is a great property with a wonderful feel about it. The staff are fabulous, the food is great, the rooms comfortable and really clean, the amenities excellent. I would stay here any time I could, as it truly is a home away from home.

Room Tip: Some of the bathrooms are small. If you want a larger one, ask when reserving.
