So expensive for what you get. Dusty, simple and nothing for it to be $500/night! There’s so many other beautiful hotels to choose from for way cheaper. This will be my last stay with Fairmont Hotel especially in Edmonton. A casual “sorry” and offer to an upgrade for a special price for the future. No thank you! To be fair Fairmont in Calgary was great I needed to say it because it was the reason why we picked Fairmont Edmonton but it’s completely disappointed

We thoroughly enjoyed our Fairmont Gold experience. We were celebrating my Husband’s 50th birthday. We were greeted with smiling valets and welcoming front reception. Up to the 7th floor where we were warmly greeted by the Concierge. He was a delight and so helpful. We also noted the lovely historical photos in the hallways on the way to our room. Upon entering our room we were impressed with the modern colors of grays and creams yet still appreciative of the authentically classic decor along with the beautiful view from our windows overlooked the North Saskatchewan River and the Muttart Conservatory. After freshening up we made our way back downstairs to the Harvest Room for our dinner. We had an amazing server named Dew. He was attentive but not overly so; which we love, as we appreciate being able to have a conversation without frequent interruptions. Breakfast in the morning consisted of a delicious assortment of goodies. Our overall experience at Fairmont Hotel MacDonald surpassed our expectations with much appreciation to all the wonderful people who work there. We most definitely will be returning. Thanks so much!

Loved our stay here! Every single staff member that we encountered was genuinely happy to see us and treated us like honoured guests. The hotel itself is full of history and has been maintained so that every modern convenience is offered while staying true to it’s original beauty and elegance. Located near the lush river, we enjoyed sitting on the outdoor patio/lounge to take in the views of bridges and city lights. Can’t wait to stay again at The MacDonald and sit in the red chairs around the fire pit with drink in hand.

Very friendly staff at the front desk. Accommodations were comfortable and impeccably clean. Generous sized room and washroom. Beds and pillows were incredibly comfortable. Very quiet hotel! Enjoyed the patio for drinks and apetizers. Unique drinks served in large tubes are perfect for a group of people. Check in and Check out were very efficient.

It was great to finally stay again at this wonderful hotel. Greeted by Zack, the bellman, who had my room keys ready for me. Very nice upgraded room for my ACCOR status as well as a welcome amenity from the manager! Very much appreciated. The room overlooked the patio area and river valley. Fairmont rooms are always well appointed, clean and very comfortable. Internet access and speed is excellent. The work area is very comfortable and efficient. Had dinner meeting at the Confederation Lounge. Service was very professional and welcoming. The food is always great and reasonably priced. The bed is very comfortable and room temperature can be controlled very easily. Check out was friendly and prompt. Again, the bellmen are very efficient for valet or non-valet service. A stay at the Fairmont Hotel Macdonald is highly recommended for its palatial surroundings, excellent service and central downtown location.
