Reviewed yesterday NEW

We frequently visit Fairmont Hotels (including Calgary, Banff, Lake Louise, Jasper, Ottawa, Kona, Scottsdale). We had a bad experience at the Hotel Macdonald. We spent approximately $1000 for three rooms. Two of the rooms were on either side of a room with a screaming baby, which was incredibly frustrating as we had stressed the importance of having quiet rooms as...

Much like the Fairmont Chateau Laurier, I feel like I'm being transported in Canadian history when i walk into the hotel. A beautiful hotel throughout with serious gravitas. An amazing patio overlooking the city. Rooms are large, spacious and tastefully decorated.

Stayed one night while up in Edmonton. Had a king room, well appointed and dry very comfy bed. Friendly service from the front door to the front desk, to the restaurant. I'd highly recommend and will return when back in town.

It's very old hotel and that's why it's unique. Rooms are very old and smelly a little but the things I love about this hotel is their amazing food at the restaurant and amazing view of the river on the patio . I go there summer or winter. I love it

I stayed here three nights on business. This hotel is very clean and quiet. The beds are comfortable. Staff goes out of their way to help. Restaurant and bar offer great food and beverage options. The location is convenient to downtown access.

We booked a night here, even though we live in Edmonton, just to have a night away. I paid a little extra for a valley view, not realizing that was also bumping me up to Fairmont Gold. At that level, you get your own lounge on the 7th floor with soft drinks and appetizers in the evening, and breakfast in...

I have always enjoyed staying at the Hotel or visiting with friends on the Terrace overlooking the beautiful and far reaching river valley. The atmosphere in the lounge, at the Harvest Room Restaurant or on the patio is always dignified, classy, quiet. The staff treats the guests with utmost attention and courtesy. The quality of the food is good, a...

We stayed at the Fairmont Hotel MacDonald to celebrate my husband's 40th birthday. Upon checking in we were offered a room upgrade for $100 which included appetizers, a private lounge only open to guests on that floor, and breakfast. We agreed and found out another person had booked the room at only a minute before us. They accommodated us and...

Stayed 3 nights at Christmas. This is a grand old hotel. Had booked a Fairmont room. Loved it. Had some housekeeping issues and we were moved to a Gold Floor room. The gold floor had renovated modern rooms. We actually enjoyed the older style with character Fairmont room more. We give the staff credit though for trying to improve our...
