    The Fairmont Hotel MacDonald was our choice of venue for our wedding night 26 years ago. Living away from Edmonton for 5 years the choice for a return visit was simple. While dating we frequented what's now the Confederation Lounge after local theater events and concerts downtown. This stay upon arrival we were immediately greeted by Michael, a concierge who was quick to provide any assistance, including helping plan for an evening out. He offered to drive us to a dinner date and provided his coordinates on his business card. This clearly stands out from other hotels we've ever stayed with. Later that evening Michael chauffeured us to our destination eleven blocks away in busy downtown traffic door to door. Michael is a rock star. Kayla checked us in at reception and was cheerful and quick to get us up to our room. She also followed up to ensure we were pleased with the hospitality. The Confederation Lounge was much like we remembered. Very conscientious staff and wide choice of whiskeys and mixed cocktails. We were served by an affable fellow who's name I cannot recall. The lounge was very busy yet we were not left waiting. Our room was pleasant and very well appointed. Hotels of this stature can appear tired with fixtures and moldings painted over and over. Our room at the MacDonald was bright and new looking. We look forward to our next visit to the MacDonald when we make another return visit to Edmonton.

    We stayed on the Gold Level for our 1st anniversary this past week, and enjoyed the stay completely! We had an amazing room that had wonderful amenities including a comfortable bed, and clean and upscale bathroom, meals, drinks and relaxation in the Gold Level Lounge was well stocked and delicious! All in all, the hotel was fabulous from the greeting to departure.

    Went here for Saturday brunch with friends. The room is kind of crowded with tables and the buffet counters organized a bit awkwardly for good “traffic flow”. But the food was fresh and kept well-supplied. Plenty of food choices! There could be more sliced bread/rolls options, but staff are very attentive and quickly supplied any missing/desired items. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience and were able to get some beautiful photos outside at the same time.

    Our friends and us visited the Fairmont Macdonald recently for supper! We had something to celebrate. We had a fantastic evening and was served by a guy named Dew Johnny! He was such a friendly and great server. We will definitely visit again!!

    This is THE hotel to stay at in Edmonton. It has history and classic architecture built in a distinctive chateau style adapted from 16th century French castles. The food is top quality as is the service and amenities. And the view over the river valley is stunning.
