My husband always rents a suite when our anniversary comes around each year. The suites are lovely and very romantic. I personally enjoy the traditional decor and finishing. The location could not be better. Close to the core of downtown you can travel almost anywhere in minutes. Perfect place to spend an anniversary weekend relaxing and dining out on the... More

Jasper and Edmonton are very dated 3, 3.5 star hotels with a steam room and heated pool. Was hoping Edm. was a little nicer than Jasper but found the experience to be quite similar. These hotels need to realize that guest travel more and because of that expect more when they pay over $300 a night.

planned a short staycation at the Hotel MacDonald with the girlfriend and I have to say it was excellent. As far as a comfortable, incredibly well-serviced hotel goes to re-charge your batteries for a weekend - This was perfect. make sure you use the hot tub/pool/Sauna/Steamroom facilities because it's def worth it. Honestly haven't felt that relaxed since going away... More

I was fortunate and had a view of the river from my room. I was attending an event downtown and didn't want to face a long drive home after an evening of festivities. The hotel room was lovely and the bed comfortable and luxurious. I enjoyed the use of the gym with its generous number of cardio pieces as well... More

Spotless rooms and extraordinary service. The staff is the amazing part of the hotel. The river view is stunning. The beds were extremely cozy. The cost is high, but the hotel lives up to the fairmont brand

I love this hotel. It is convenient and so wonderfully dog friendly. The beds are luxurious and my canines feel welcomed and happy. What is the hate part? The rooms are all different and I can't seem to catch a break with the best room. This last time I asked 3 different times "do I have the 2 rooms connecting".... More

The building is impressive and somehow reflects the spirit of Canada. We were lucky to get a large, comfy room with large bathroom and a walk-in closet. The service is appropriate, but the reception staff could be more welcoming and polite. Breakfast buffet in the american mid-west style with plenty of unhealthy choices. However, smoothies fruit and wonderful canadian cheese... More

Due to family reasons, I have had the need to spend a fair bit of time in Edmonton. I have always had a good experience at the Hotel Macdonald. The staff is always very obliging and the lounge is a great place to end a stressful day. The gym was just renovated and the results are impressive. The one thing... More

I arrived at 11 pm to check in only to discover that they had given my confirmed room away to someone else. Moreover, they relocated me to the Radisson which was 20 minutes from downtown, and I had early meetings scheduled at the Fairmont and then one block away. Hugely disappointed given that we had spent more than $15,000 on... More
