“West Inn way nicer”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW via mobile

Nice hotel. Excellent staff. Rooms are small. Bathroom floor was dirty. Phone never worked. Walls paper thin as I listened to a guy set a date up with an escort agency on his phone for 20 minutes. Would I stay here again? Never.

Stayed July 2014, traveled as a couple

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 moment!

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 pool are shut until September 2014, but you can use those of a neighbouring hotel. All in all a lovely stay in this beautiful, grand hotel.

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 was worth the upgrade cost let alone the room and stunning views.

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 are stunning. A perfect place for a wedding venue.

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!
