This is a great hotel for business, great scenery if you ask for a river view room, fantastic location, all of the typical Fairmont style. Not cheap, but consistently good service, facilities, food, staff are friendly and courteous.

Fairmont hotels offer consistent wonderful service and standards no matter where they are located. The downtown location of Hotel MacDonald makes it easy to get to where you need to go. The nest of pillows and high quality sheets add a touch of luxury to your stay.

We've stayed at numerous Fairmont locations and love the traditional quality and ambiance (Old World feel). This location has a great view, wonderful location to transportation and many other amenities and numerous dining options. Breakfast was wonderful in the Harvest Room, too.

Stayed here in August for a wedding. Absolutely great. Comfortable room with a wonderful view of the Edmonton River Valley. Really great old world charm in downtown Edmonton. Service and attention to detail was great in all aspects. A great relaxing experience.

The Fairmont (Macdonald as it is know by the locals), is an architectural masterpiece on the edge of the downtown area of Edmonton. The hotel lobby is exactly what you would expect from a Fairmont, old world, well appointed charm. The Confederation lounge (Sit on the patio for an incredible view - assuming the weather is nice) is a must... More
