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

Staff was intent on fulfilling our every wish. This is a marvelous hotel. If you can get an upgrade to a Signature Room with a view of the river valley, it will make your stay very special. The beds are especially comfortable, with the feather pillows!

Our 2nd getaway night (Feb/July) at the Fairmont Mac in Edmonton. Love this hotel. Love the service. Like seeing Smudge (dog) at the front when we arrive. There is no downside to this hotel. Will stay again!

On the bank of the North Saskatchewan River, Hotel Macdonald has the best location in Edmonton. It is a short walk from the Shaw Centre as well as world class restaurants and excellent shopping. The staff at the hotel are gracious and accommodating. I have some food allergies and the Chef came out personally to walk me through the buffet... More

Lovely, old, majestic hotel in the middle of the city. Rooms are beautifully appointed and very clean. Staff very accommodating. Enjoyed the Harvest Room and the Lounge area. Could not have been better stay. Would definitely return and would recommend to friends.

The room was exceptionally nice. Got upgraded at no extra charge to a suite. The staff were so nice and accommodating. Right in the middle of the city so you have to be careful about where you walk. Beautiful old hotel; quite majestic. Would recommend this hotel.
