Great view of the river and river valley in Edmonton and almost at the heart of downtown. Nice elegant rooms with comfortable beds and pillows. Harvest room is good for dining, but pricey. Fortunately there are a ton of really good restaurants within a few blocks walking.

A beautiful hotel with amazing views if your room happens to be on the river's side. I expect the other side to have magnificent city views. I loved the historical touches throughout the building - very Canadian and reminiscent of the Banff Springs. The hotel is immaculately kept, the room was comfortable and clean. All staff we met were genuinely... More

The hotel is a beautiful and historic hotel. The staff is courteous and friendly. The rooms are spacious but there is a need for an update. The furniture is worn down. The shampoo, lotion, (Rose 31) is great for a woman, very perfumed, but not for a man. My room was not ready until 3:30, and the is still dust... More

This hotel has a spectacular view of the Edmonton river valley and the sun patio in the warm weather is the place to be. The hotel is in a good location for any activity in the city centre. The service in the hotel is consistently very good, the health club fantastic and the restaurants excellent. The lounge is a great... More

The staff is exceptionally nice... Every single one of them is professional and kind. It is a historic building so you should expect some inconveniences. The shower pressure and bathroom overall is poor. Furniture is old and frayed and the front door has a gap that runs all around it that let's light from the brightly lit hallway stream in... More

We enjoyed our night at the MacDonald - I only wish we could have stayed longer! Try the signature Confederation Cocktail in the Lounge - a great drink in a lovely club-style room. Excellent service from the front door staff - Fairmont staff are consistently outstanding everywhere we travel! (We hope to see Smudge the hotel dog on our next... More

Me and the wife spent 2 nights at this hotel. Food & service were good, overall appearance was nice. Room was very outdated and overall based on what you pay per night is definitely not worth it compared to other hotels we've stayed in the city.

We've wanted to stay at the Hotel Macdonald for years, and finaly did so this weekend for our 22nd anniversary. The staff is excellent, the rooms a bit small (but this is a historic property, so to be expected) but luxuriously appointed, and the bed is possibly the most comfortable bed I have ever slept on! Our room was absolutely... More

I stayed here in February for two nights. I travel to edmonton four to five times a year and this is by far my favorite place. Very pleased with everything. It's beautiful. I usually stay at the Matrix or the Westin. This was far better. Fantastic service, lush room. Adored it!
