Fairmont Hotel Macdonald

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Very nice elegant old hotel. Wish I could have stayed longer.

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.

The hotel is magic. And for a holiday stay it becomes even more beautiful. Wonderful 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.

The hotel had atmosphere, was comfortable, great service in bar, restaurant and reception. Enjoyed the heated swimming pool. Location was convenient for downtown business meetings.

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.

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.
