    Pleasantly Surprised

    I must admit that I was a little concerned given my last experience at another heritage Fairmont Hotel. However, I was pleasantly surprised with my overnight stay at the Macdonald. Service was very professional and the guest room was very comfortable. The room has been updated and I acknowledge there are some restrictions in renovating a heritage hotel. I have in my profile the preference of a room away from the elevator to avoid the elevator "traffic" noise and they did accommodate that - though I ended up with a room right across a housekeeping area and I could hear the chattering and the going ons when I checked in late in the afternoon. Luckily, I had to leave the hotel early the next morning for a meeting and I was not inconvenienced by this. I returned late in the afternoon to pick up my bag and they graciously accommodated my request to change my clothes in the health club before I headed to the airport.

    Beautiful hotel, excellent staff. We felt very well taken care of and the staff went above and beyond to accommodate requests to better our stay. All aspects of our stay were excellent. Gold lounge is worth the upgrade with amenities worthy of the name.

    Great stay at the Fairmont MacDonald!

    My daughter and I traveled to Edmonton to see Ariana Grande in concert. We chose the Fairmont MacDonald because of its close proximity to Rogers Place. Our stay was amazing! We were granted a room upgrade and bestowed the privilege of “guest of the day”. We were warmly greeted upon arrival and made to feel comfortable right away. Our room was very spacious, clean & comfy with a beautiful view of the river. There was a lovely welcome note, sweet treats and drink vouchers left for us in the room which we used in the confederation lounge prior to the show. The room service was superb and the breakfast each morning in the Harvest room delicious! The staff checked in via text during our stay to see how everything was going. Really appreciate the level of service extended to us, made our stay feel special. The MacDonald will be our hotel of choice when traveling to Edmonton and attending events downtown.
