Elegant Historical Hotel with great old fashioned charm. Attentive front desk staff, good service and it is clean. They have very nice large comfortable beds with big cozy down duvets and comfortable pillows.

I have stayed in Fairmont hotels before, but had never upgraded to Gold. It was our anniversary and I wanted a nice meal with a view and a nice room to make the occasion memorable since we only had one day without the children. I found the Gold benefits to be perfect for the occasion. Casual but refined and impeccable.... More

Very enjoyable, I really enjoyed my stay at Edmonton's Fairmont Hotel. Hope to return again next year. I also chose the Fairmont Hotel in Victoria, BC during this same holiday. The cost is a bit pricey, but worth it.
