Fancy But Over Priced

Would recommend Mon, Jan 13, 2014
Rooms are nice - other than small primary bathroom. Wifi is $14 per night. - not acceptable when paying $200 per night for standard room. Restaurant WAY over priced - I'm sure it's good food but we ate elsewhere. Staff is phenomenal. They brought milk and cookies for the kids when we were in packing the car. Like any downtown hotel parking extra. $25 for self park - $35 for Valet. The walk from the parking garage is pretty far and beings you outside. Over all it's fancy but not worth the extra money.


De Dutch down street is a way better value for breakfast.

The hotel is magic. And for a holiday stay it becomes even more beautiful. Wonderful touches...like cookies and candy canes on Christmas Eve in my room and then when I opened my door to leave on Christmas morning there was a stocking with candy and an orange. Just perfect.

Thanks to Orbitz rate, a total steal for luxurious surroundings!

Would recommend Tue, Sep 6, 2011
Our room had the most incredible river view and the terrasse brunch at the hotel was just as memorable. We couldn't be more satisfied for the price. We paid a mere $130 vs the usual $180 rate. The bathroom was the one aspect of the room that was dated and more motel than hotel. We didn't make it to the gym, but friends said they were impressed. Though the lobby isn't spacious, the bar/lounge/restaurant was open, charming and made us feel like we were in the French Riviera.

Time saver

Wifi wasn't free, but if you signed up for the gratis Fairmont club, it was.

Relaxing Get-Away

Would recommend Wed, Jun 27, 2007
The Hotel Macdonald was friendly, clean and efficient. We checked into the room early with no problem. The room was very quiet and the view was beautiful; we really enjoyed it as we ate our breakfast inroom - great breakfast, beautifully presented. We had lunch on the patio which had the same superb view and fantastic service! I think if you want to get-away to the city of Edmonton, this is the place to stay - you are right downtown, we went to the Winspear Theatre for a jazz concert and walked within minutes.

Nightlife hint

We loved the hotel lounge after returning from the concert we had delicious snacks and the best dirty martini while we people watched (a busy place for a Tuesday night).
