We stayed at the Fairmont for 5 nights. Rooms were excellent and quiet. The hotel was a great location for the Taste of Edmonton and other central facilities and is arguably the best hotel in Edmonton. We came to Edmonton to visit friends and go shopping. The hotel had a lovely view out over the river and we had a... More

The staff is unbelievable happy and supportive. They all go out of their way to make your stay memorable. After several visits my son and grandson really liked the complementary bicycles'.

The place to stay in Edmonton. From being treated by the house pet "Smudge" to the nice views on the back lawn to the outstanding Sunday Brunch. This is not only a comfortable hotel but the service is excellent.

This hotel is 100 years old this summer. Cocktails and snacks outside on the terrace over looking a small lovely garden and a view of the river is a delightful way to spend an hour or two. Have stayed at this hotel often through the years and never been disappointed. The staff are attentive and polite.

A hotel that understands your personal needs as you travel. Great rooms and workout facilities. Great location for all business travels or just a couples get away. Has a great lounge to have a drink and relax.

Our stays at the Hotel for Supper/ Stay overnight/ just to chill out on the patio. We find it peaceful and very enjoyable. We are treated with respect and on special occasions they have celebrated with us by just making us feel special. WE TRULY FEEL THE HOTEL IS A HOME AWAY FROM HOME.

Perfect hotel with a wonderful view of the North Saskatchewan River. 9 beautiful Brides were at the hotel today. How could one go wrong. Steps away from Craft Beer Market. Service was outstanding and the room was comfy and wonderful.
