Very friendly staff that are always willing to provide information and assistance. Valet parking was fast and efficient. The room was clean, spacious and the bed was very comfortable. The service in the lounge was prompt and courteous. The hotel manager brings his Lab to work and she greets people in the lobby when you arrive or are leaving. A... More

You would think a hotel of Fairmont's claim to quality and stature would ensure the sleeping and relaxtion comfort of its guests by having the hotel room doors equipped with noiseless closing mechanisms but this is certainly not the case at the Fairmont Macdonald. In my room on the 2nd floor during our one night stay, my companion and I... More

Classic hotel with a caring staff that anticipated my needs. Had a beautiful sleep in a quiet room on a luxurious bed. The central location and beautiful view makes this the best hotel in Edmonton. Definitely will be coming back!

I did not stay in the Hotel as I live in Edmonton, but went there for dinner on Friday evening. This was my first time being in the Hotel Macdonald and to say I was impressed was an understatement. The decor, the atmosphere, the staff were all amazing. Our waiter was Santana, and he was very attentive but not in... More

When we arrived at 3;45 PM our room was not ready, they offered an upgrade for a reduced rate of $20 which we accepted. The overall experience was excellent with the exception of the food and service in the lounge. The Harvest Room is closed for renovation so we had lunch in the lounge. We ordered 2 soups and a...

Dinner in the Harvest Room after a long day, the service and Crown Royal superb to start. We had no appetizers, the main courses we had were beef tenderloin with beetroot hollandaise which was fantastic. Also my wife had the Sablefish which may be better known as Black Cod was quite good. For desert I had the Creme Brule infused... More

This place is a little gem. The rates are reasonable, the location is handy and the staff are uber friendly. It's a beautiful place ...now 100 years old, but modernized sympathetically. The food was very good and reasonable. I'd have to say this is the best place to stay in Edmonton. It even has a lobby dog named Smudge!

The Fairmont McDonald is the perfect venue for a girls getaway, we stayed in our rooms for a lovely dinner, in our hotel robes for room service. Just because we loved the atmosphere so much. Then we went to the Bryan Adams concert and returned to Valet Parking and comfy beds. Wonderful memories for me and my best friend.

I was staying elsewhere downtown Edmonton and getting harassed every time I had to walk through the parking garage alone so I checked out and escaped to the Fairmont. When I called to book, I mentioned I felt sick and stressed. I went straight to the Fairmont and immediately to bed. When I got to my room (maybe only 20... More
