The hotel was clean. Employees were great. But staff's response to unnecessary noise fell woefully short. We follow the rules. We tip staff well. But a wedding party apparently thought it owned the hotel. Very loud, with people spilling out into the hallway, driking alcohol,...More

Stayed here for multiple times and it’s still amazing. Very clean and staffs are very friendly. We’ll go back to this hotel again. The garden at the back is the best view. Food at the harvest Room Restaurant is also one of the best.

My family had a wonderful stay at this hotel. The staff were super friendly and helpful. The room was beautiful and very spacious. We spent some time in the pool, which the kids loved. We will definitely stay here again on future trips to Edmonton.

UPDATE: Following our weekend at the Fairmont Hotel Macdonald, I received a follow up call from a very helpful and understanding David Paquet, the Director of the Front Office to discuss our issues. He was very apologetic, accepted our issues weren't in the true spirit of the usual standards of the hotel and was very helpful for future bookings (by offering an upgrade should we wish to stay again) as well as some compensation for our weekend. My point was that it would be a shame for another couple to experience the same as we had and I suggested that he also actually have a look at room 524. My review was fact, however I feel a lot happier now that we have received some professional customer service from Mr David Paquet. It's just a shame the same level of service wasn't apparent during our stay but I'm sure these issues will all be addressed going forward. Frank
