We had my daughters wedding at the hotel. Staff were fantastic. Very helpful. Stayed in room 729 was a upper room with a good view. All rooms have smaller windows. Old style. But the room had a sitting room with couch and 2 chairs. Separate bedroom. Nice room.

Stayed at this elegant, charming and beautiful hotel for a wedding and was very happy to get a very good rate. The best sleep I've had in months was during my one night stay. Very comfortable and will definitely be a first choice when returning to Edmonton in the future. Also received congratulatory chocolates for my retirement :p (oops)

We enjoyed our 1 night stay here, getting into the hotel was a little tricky but we opted for the valet parking to avoid anymore confusion. The girl at the front desk was so friendly and helpful, as well as every other hotel staff member we encountered. This hotel is 100 years old and just beautiful, our room had a... More

No doubt, the building is stunning ans the view of the river is hard to beat. You're close to everything downtown. The staff is dedicated, friendly and ready to help you anytime. During summer you can eat outside on the terrace with 360' view: the château on one side and a breathtaking view of the North Saskatchewan river valley on... More

The Fairmont Hotel Macdonald is 100 years old, and it has been beautifully maintained and updated. The decor is classy and traditional with modern amenities including great wifi. We loved our stay here. The staff is some of the most friendly of any hotel I have ever visited. The location is downtown on the bluff with a spectacular view of... More

When I first arrived, I stayed in a room overlooking the street and could not sleep at all because it was noisy. I asked to be switched and unfortunately, was put in a room that wasn't as nice on the second floor. When you book, specify that you want a river view and not on the 2nd floor. It IS... More

The Fairmont has been the most luxurious hotel on our road trip, loved the traditional old style charm and the helpful welcome on reception. We met up with family who live in Edmonton and enjoyed an excellent meal in the bar area, service really good, nothing too much trouble even warming baby bottles! Our double room had recently been decorated,... More

The Fairmont is by far my favourite hotel brand. I live in Edmonton and stay here a few times a year. Every room that I have stayed in from the Churchill suite to regular room has been amazing. Service is always excellent and the food is exquisite. I'm had many wonderful memories and I will have many more to come... More
