Nice hotel with great service but showing its years. We had a small suite that was in sad need of updating but the staff and view were great. Not sure when the next refresh is planned but hopefully soon!

I just recently spent a night at the Fairmont Hotel in Edmonton and it was really wonderful. I had always wanted to stay at this historic hotel and got my chance on Saturday , May 14 th, 2015. It was very comfortable. I liked the historic character of the hotel. The rooms were very modern but still had the historic... More

An older hotel with some charming characteristics (example) wider hallways, beautiful stairways, a dog to greet you and a wonderful view of the river. The rooms have been updated with contemporary washrooms, Tv's etc and the bed was comfortable and quickly fell asleep. I did not notice any noises from the road or outside the room. Staff were extremely helpful... More

I recently had my team in Edmonton for some strategic planning. The hotel is situation on a beautiful spot overlooking the North Saskatchewan River--an inspiring backdrop. Rooms, service, food were all impeccable!

The staff is the real standout here. My sister and I have never felt so pampered. We changed rooms, changed transportation, scheduled dinners, and otherwise made great demands of the staff, all of whom were cheerful and happy to serve. The room was large, the beds comfortable, the location excellent, and what a beautiful place. Worth every penny

We stayed here for our anniversary over the weekend and had such a great stay! So nice and close to restaurants and everything happening downtown, an awesome lounge with yummy drinks and the room was very comfortable. We did not get a river view as we requested, but the room was still great. The bed is like sleeping in a... More

Very close to the Shaw Convention Center. Staff were friendly and pleasant and refer to you by your name consistently. There is a golden lab named "Smudge" who resides in the hotel lobby and is available for guest to schedule a walk/run with - brilliant idea. The rooms are clean and stately, updated but still hold the sense of history.... More

We stayed for three nights in a Strathcona room. The room had the perfect blend of history, character, and modern comforts. There were great views of the river and the beds were comfortable. Punctuated throughout the hotel are pieces of the hotel's history which have helped define this city. The food was excellent and the health club was a huge... More

Had never visited this hotel and after some researching decided to book here to for my fiancé' birthday. Part of my online booking included a request for some fruit as a surprise for my fiancé's birthday. The hotel did this along with providing chocolates and a happy birthday message, very nice touch! We did have a little discrepancy with some... More
