U.S. News Review

Named for Canada's first Prime Minister, Sir John A. Macdonald, "The Mac" sits pretty on the banks of the North Saskatchewan River near downtown Edmonton (the hotel's other nickname is the "Chateau on the River"). This Fairmont hotel wins guests over with its elegant accommodations. Each of its 199 guest rooms and suites is tastefully decorated in neutral tones and comes with an HD TV and high-speed Internet access (for a fee), as well as views of the river or city skyline. Hungry lodgers applaud the swift room service, while other guests appreciate the ornate dining area at the Harvest Room restaurant, which features a menu of local Alberta beef and seafood. And the library-like Confederation Lounge makes for a nice place to have a quiet drink after a long day. Some guests do bemoan the parking and Internet fees at this hotel, but Fairmont President's Club members can have some of those costs waived when they stay here.
