Downtown Edmonton's Fairmont is an exquisite piece of architecture and enjoys a fantastic spot right on the riverbank allowing fantastic views to the south. The rooms are large, well appointed, and are very comfortable. The service in the lounge and restaraunt are first rate and staff from valet to check in to waiters all prove to be professional and prompt.... More

Hotel Macdonald is one of my favorite hotels. Looks like a castle from the outside. Although this is not one of the renovated Fairmonts, I still appreciate the traditional rooms. I always stay in 801 or 802 - my turret rooms. They are cozy and quiet. Have a seating area and comfy beds. Plenty of room in the bathrooms and... More

There is something about the Confederation Lounge in the Fairmont Hotel Macdonald that is comforting, nostalgic, and makes you think about how great life in Canada really is. I recently had a chance to catch up with some old friends and we agreed to meet in the Confederation Lounge. Looking up at the painting of the Father's of Confederation I... More

The Fairmont MacDonald is a beautiful hotel in the Centre of Edmonton. The staff at this hotel always make you feel welcome and add that personal attention to details. It has an excellent restaurant in the hotel.Ruth Chris steakhouse across the street, and many other bars and restaurants within a few mins walk. But the best part is that the... More

The hotel Macdonald is a fabulous hotel, friendly staff and nice rooms. We did have to wait for our room to get ready for us but we sat in the lounge and visited so wasn't a bad wait. Our room was nice and clean, bright, and over looked the valley.

In the summer of 2013 I booked a year in advance for August 6 - 11, 2014 to stay at the Fairmont Hotel MacDonald and we arrived promptly as stated. The room had been booked in a block of rooms for the 100th Anniversary of my Regiment but when we got there a mix up found us being shown into... More

You can definitely tell that Fairmont's goal is to please the people. We were greeted by bell men who were very eager to help us with our baggage upon arrival. Check in was very easy and fast. The rooms were gorgeous and spacious. Parking was very easy and convenient. Once again, Fairmont lives up to its name.

After staying at the Fairmont at the Vancouver airport I was very excited to try the Hotel Macdonald. I book a deluxe suite for my husbands birthday and included the romance package: roses, chocolate dipped strawberries, chocolates, champagne and a card signed by staff. I was disappointed in the room after staying at the newer hotel in Vancouver. The hotel... More

The Mac is a great example of the old-style downtown grand hotel (The Fairmont chain has a lot of them!). You can't compare them to new modern hotels because they aren't just a place to stay; it is the relaxed pace of a past era that you savour. They have self confident grace & elegance because they don't have anything... More
