As usual, this Fairmount is quite comfortable and tastefully decorated. Room Service is good and staff is very courteous. Too bad there isnt a boutique or two to shop in or that the items in the display cases are not for sale at the hotel location.

Elegant from top to bottom, terrace is an oasis within the downtown, lounge is warm and comfortable, staff were great and the rec facilities were all inclusive (pool, hot tub, coed sauna and steam room and a very well equipped gym. An all around great hotel experience, particularly after a very disappointing stay at Jasper Park Lodge. Even with the... More

I had just moved away from Edmonton, and this was my first stay back in town. We were there for a banquet at the hotel that night. I used the gym there which was actually a bit disappointing, not much equipment at all, but I was able to get my usual workout done. Our room was really spacious and nice... More

Wife and I stayed here for our anniversary, she received a coupon that gave us a deluxe room for $139.00, I believe the regular room rate was around the $300 mark. For $139.00 I would say that the stay was worth it but if we had payed the regular rate then I would have felt "Egads! we payed $300 for... More

The brunch at this hotel is served in a fabulous "original" dining room. There is also a view of the river and gardens. The food choices are generous, eclectic, and regional. The service was also exceptional.

We stayed there in a standard queen room, it was smaller then the usual fare, everything in the room worked/looked great. Staff was very helpful and kind. $14.50 for wifi is kinda ridiculous though. They were kind enough to waive the fee though. Wouldnt stay here again, cause there are plenty of hotels in edmonton with nicer amenities in the... More

Stayed here with our kids and parents after touring the Canadian Rockies and staying at the other Fairmonts in this area. The building is lovely and historic and the common areas seemed fine. we didn't use the pool but that area looked nice. We had an expensive and tasty meal at the main restaurant where service was very slow-maybe expected... More

This hotel is centrally located and the rooms facing the river valley have a nice view. The reception area seemed cramped for a Fairmont hotel, however the service was efficient and friendly. The gym/spa was very well equipped. And my room was clean, roomy and lush, without feeling dour. The room amenities are excellent. A Keurig coffeemaker is a nice touch.... More
