It may have just been the room I had, but the bed was very uncomfortable. Unfortunate, when you consider a clean room and good night's sleep are the cornerstone of a good hotel. The room itself was quite clean, with a nice view to the south. Bathroom says a bit small, similar to the old Fairmont styles. Not really an... More

We had requested a kingsize bed, we were upgraded free of charge to a larger room. We had a lovely room, very clean, loved the toiletries. We went down to the lounge and had the best vegan tomato soup ever! I think it is also really great when the manager of the hotel comments on everyone's review, they clearly care... More

Stay at the Fairmont! Yes, it can be a bit pricey but the service is absolutely outstanding! At least, if you cannot afford to stay, go for tea or a dinner! The ambience is worth the visits and the friendliness of the staff will delight you!

A little pricey for what you get. Don't pay for parking at the ticket machine. Pay at the front desk. Quite a difference in price. Very comfy bed but the windows are terrible. We were on the 3rd floor and it sounded like the vehicles were literally driving right past our window. Not a good place for light sleepers. Didn't... More

Right from the moment I pulled up to the hotel the experience was friendly, helpful and welcoming. The room was clean and an amazing view of the River Valley. The location perfect. I would definitely recommend this hotel to others wanting a great place to stay.

If you love traditional, older hotels, you will love the Hotel Macdonald. If you can get a bigger room, great - some of updated showers, baths. I love the Confederation Lounge for after or before dinner drinks and the connecting outdoor patio - if weather cooperates, one of the best places to have a lunch or dinner or just a... More

The service, ambiance and beautifully relaxing outdoor terrace made for an exceptional weekend for a 5 sisters get together. In all, it was 5 star + the bonus of an elegant and relaxed historical touch.

Great friendly staff that have it together in treating each guest as a special visitor. Decor and suites are gorgeous. A step back in history with a modern touch. The food experience, presentation and flavours were amazing. Overall a memorable time

Hotel and service are amazing but I would like to comment on their lounge in particular. In the summer time, their lounge has the best, sorry, the bestEST patio in town. No restaurant can beat that view. Staff are great and the food is simply delicous! I recommend.
