Reviewed 18 September 2017

I had a friend coming in from out of town and wanted to impress her, so this was naturally the hotel I chose. It is an iconic hotel in Edmonton, and sets the standard for both beautiful and welcoming. Yes, its expensive, but the service, staff and team are extraordinary. Their Sunday brunch is likely the best in the city, and their patio for a summer drink is extraordinary. And they have bees at the hotel which provides their honey. Which is awesome.

Room Tip: Get a south facing room if you can... the river valley views are spectacular

Great old railway hotel beautifully refurbished. The standard rooms are very nice and service was excellent. The dinner at the restaurant was excellent and the buffet breakfast very nice also. Lovely outdoor patio overlooking the river.

Room Tip: Ask for a room over looking the river for a great view.

Great experience from check-in, to the great spacious room, to the Gold Floor Lounge. The staff are extremely courteous and friendly. The amenities are amazing and top notch. I am a big fan of Fairmont properties, they really know how to make you feel welcome.
I look forward to my next visit.

We decided to stay here for the first time, just to say we had stayed at the Fairmont. The rooms are nice, but definitely not worth the price, we could have stayed 3 times a long for less anywhere else.

Stayed: August 2017
