Staff is amazing here and very quick to accommodate any needs. Rooms are very nicely appointed and very quiet. Unfortunately the health club is not open and to use a pool, you must go to another hotel until mid September when the Fairmont's new health club is scheduled to be ready. The outside patio and bar are amazing!

We always like Fairmont Hotels and this was no exception. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Location within walking distance from downtown. We had a very nice room with a partial view of the river. One night we had dinner at the hotel. We sat outside watching the beautiful gardens and the river and the meals were excellent.

A friend of mine recommended the Hotel McDonald. I wanted to spend ONE night in this special. Life is short, and this would be a special treat. We had a King room that faced downtown Edmonton. It was beautifully appointed. I loved the old time historic feel, and still have the amenities of a modern facility. Hands down, this hotel... More

We stay at the Fairmont Hotel MacDonald every year on a weekend that's on or close to our wedding anniversary. It's consistently excellent and we are always treated special )ie. Happy Anniversary" chocolates in our room when we arrive.

Nice hotel. Excellent staff. Rooms are small. Bathroom floor was dirty. Phone never worked. Walls paper thin as I listened to a guy set a date up with an escort agency on his phone for 20 minutes. Would I stay here again? Never.

The Fairmont Hotel Macdonald is is premier place to stay in Edmonton, if you can afford it. The service, amenities and view are all excellent. The food in the Harvest Room restaurant was superb and the staff were always friendly and attentive. For a special occasion such as birthday or anniversary, this is a very lovely place to enjoy the... More

Great location overlooking the river..... Ask for a river view room if this is important to you. Clean comfortable rooms, a super comfortable bed, very helpful reception staff. We had a couple of drinks on the terrace overlooking the river. We also used the valet parking , this costs $14 more than the self park. The health club and swimming... More

Whenever we stay in Edmonton we stay at the Hotel MacDonald we love the atmosphere there. The views are amazing. Close to downtown restaurants and Winston Churchill Square. The gardens are beautiful. The patio is open with mediocre service for lunch and afternoon drinks.

I love staying at Fairmont hotels and this one didn't disappoint. Only negative was the individual who checked us in. He didn't explain the odd parking and didn't tell us that we got e-upgraded. We were pleasantly surprised that we got upgraded to a signature king room for $32...and it included breakfast...awesome deal for a Fairmont hotel. Buffet breakfast alone... More

The hotel views are stunning, interior decor stunning with many grand features. Amazing banquet room resulted in a fabulous wedding experience. My only negative and surprise at such a high end hotel was that wifi is not free! $15 or join the presidents club then it's free but still not straight forward connection after that. Would recommend though the grounds... More
