We stayed here prior to setting out for the Arctic. The room was tiny but clean. The conference rooms were fine. It was noisy with traffic much of the night. Two complaints: internet was free only if you signed up for the hotel membership; we asked for a wake up call and never received it. When we mentioned it at... More

Macdonald was outstanding, quite pricy, but worth it on special occasions. We used the dining locations twice, the valet service and spent time on the grounds. The hotel has interesting pictures on the mezzanine level - I highly recommend it.

The Hotel MacDonald is a luxury hotel but still warm and friendly. The staff were all professional, polite, and friendly. A real pleasure to deal with. Our room was lovely. The beds were comfortable and the bathroom amenities very nice. The restaurant and lounge both offered delicious menu choices and comfortable seating. Having the option to eat out on the... More

We have stayed at this beautiful hotel on two separate occasions during the last month while in Edmonton. We would be hard pressed to come up with anything we were not completely satisfied with. The rooms are beautiful with lovely mouldings and character you just don't find in modern hotels. Everything is spotlessly clean and so well cared for. There's... More

I have stayed at the Fairmont Hotel MacDonald many times. I live in Edmonton but will find an excuse from time to time to have a local vacation. I stayed here last week for the few days leading up to my wedding. I had both the Sir Winston Churchill and Charles Melville Hayes suites on the gold floor. The renovations... More

This place is beautiful and its outside castle-like architecture definitely stands out from the rest of the Edmonton skyline. The hotel lives up to the Fairmont name with its luxury and comfort and It's ideally located off of Jasper avenue, being close to most downtown businesses. The staff is very friendly and does its best to acomodate. The rooms are... More

We sat on the terrace over looking the river valley and had a terrific lunch. I didn't actually stay at the hotel (I was with family), but my vendor did and occasioned the use of meeting facilities and this lunch. From my vantage point, the property is grand but at the same time it's also charming. It is a tourist... More

Cost was very reasonable at $50/person. Food selection was amazing. I have never seen so many selections to choose from at a buffet. Food tasted amazing. Beautiful setting and ambiance. The reason for only four bubbles instead of 5 was the wait staff for our table was slow and we sat with dishes piled up on our table for quite... More
