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

Helpful and smiling staff, nice building, large rooms, gluten-free options for breakfast... but so noisy that one can hardly sleep (you have to avoid rooms on the main road). Another suggestion: we were surprised and somewhat upset that there was no (free) shuttle service o the airport... this is definitely not consistent with their standard and the price of the... More

Great place, amazing staff, the best in Edmonton. A must visit place when you are visiting the city. Amazing view of the city and the gold level is worth it for sure. Staff is so courteous and welcoming. We are always booking at Fairmount everywhere and it is never a disappointment.

Was at the hotel on short notice for a family funeral, and have not stayed there before. The Concierge, Nella Mirante, was excellent. Loved the service, and Nella is a great representation of Fairmont.

Had a wonderful stay at the Hotel MacDonald. Best location in the city-- and the best views possible of the beautiful Edmonton river valley. Love the historical photos throughout this classic CP Rail hotel.

Hotel staff were very good, hotel has probably the best views in the city. Very clean and comfortable, would highly recommend staying here if you need to be in the downtown area. If your staying here try to get a room facing the river side. A street side room can be fairly noisy in the morning with all the traffic.
