Lonely Planet review
Stealing the best nook in town (as Fairmont always does), Edmonton's historic Fairmont Hotel exhibits the usual array of intricate stucco, Italian marble, ornate chandeliers and lush carpets. In the early 20th century it was one in a luxurious chain of railway hotels that dotted the cross-continental line from east to west.
Preserved in all its regal glory, it's still fit for monarchs. The regularly renovated rooms with all the expected amenities are almost worth the premium price.
Our independent authors have visited The Fairmont Hotel Macdonald and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Edmonton.
