Situated just above the North Saskatchewan River, the Fairmont Hotel Macdonald has been a recognizable fixture in the Edmonton, Alberta, skyline since it opened in the summer of 1915. While the hotel was an active part of the community for many years, it closed in 1983. After sitting dormant in ill-repair, the hotel was rescued from demolition by being recognized as an Alberta Municipal Heritage Resource in 1985. After this designation, the hotel was refurbished and once again opened its doors to the public in 1991, retaining all of its original character. Throughout the years, the hotel has hosted many celebrity guests and even royalty, such as King George VI and Queen Elizabeth. With its most recent renovation in 2017, the Fairmont Hotel Macdonald is a luxury resort and Edmonton’s only four-star, four-diamond hotel.

As the hotel is located in Edmonton’s downtown district, the Citadel Theatre, Edmonton City Centre Mall, Shaw Conference Centre, and the Alberta Aviation Museum are within a short drive or walking distance of the property. Over 50 golf courses abound in the area, as well as excellent steakhouses and farm-to-table restaurants. Guests can enjoy music at the Francis Winspear Centre for Music, a game at Rogers Place sports arena, and the inquisitive TELUS World of Science as they explore this world-class destination.
