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, the lobby, Confederation Lounge and view-filled patio still feel fit for monarchs, as does the impeccable service. The regularly renovated rooms with all the expected amenities are a little stuffy, but this place is almost worth the premium price.
A seating area and a desk are offered in every air-conditioned room at The Fairmont Hotel Macdonald. A hairdryer is provided in each en suite bathroom. Select rooms offer city views.
The Harvest Room at the Macdonald Fairmont Hotel serves regional Canadian cuisine for breakfast, lunch, dinner and weekend brunch. Guests can also enjoy afternoon tea on weekends and a relaxing drink in the Confederation Lounge.
The Fairmont Hotel Macdonald features a 24-hour business center and well-equipped fitness centre. Guests can go for a swim in the indoor swimming pool, then relax with a massage in the health club.
West Edmonton Mall is 11 km from this hotel. Edmonton Valley Zoo is 15 minutes' drive away.
