My wife and I were married at the MacDonald hotel in Edmonton AB. The hotel staff were amazing, they went above and beyond what there job required them to do. Everyone there made our wedding an amazing day. We can not thank them enough for all they've done.

Yet another fabulous Fairmont property. The Hotel MacDonald is conveniently located and sits above the beautiful river valley. The room was quiet and comfortable. My colleagues and I enjoyed a wonderful meal and delicious cocktails in the Confederation Lounge where the service was excellent.

Excellent hotel, excellent rooms, excellent service. A lady's home away from home. Just a couple things that make this hotel so good is that it has windows that open and it has a lovely pool,spa, garden area.

Excellent get-away place for couples to enjoy and share memories and be a part of 'history'. It was a romantic experience worth every bit of $$. Service is wonderful and staff are great. Try a night or two and you will not regret.
