I was served by Dew Johnny during dinner. He was well versed with the different menu items (food & drinks). He was very polite and courteous. Keep up the good work Dew. After dinner he asked about desert and drinks too. He is thorough.

Its unfortunate that ACOR hotels has purchased the Fairmont. Many little perks have disappeared - water in rooms, morning coffee in lobby (except now they are charging), less options on menu. Little by little the most important priority to ACCOR is money - and how to gouge for

My many stays at the Edmonton Fairmont MacDonald have been handled always with the utmost decorum. I’m very glad to hear of their quick and complete response to any issues that had arisen during your stay, Frank. Not surprised, to say the least...as on many occasions they went above and beyond the call of duty on our behalf. One time, as I checked in for one of my daughter’s 16th birthday stays, I had somehow misjudged the amount of our stay, and even though I did not expect anything to be done about it...when I checked out, it had been adjusted!!! That’s why I’ve kept going back. My mistake only happened that one time, yet they always seem to have that extra smile and excellent service beyond my expectations.
