"The best nook in town" -- Lonely Planet

Why We Love It

  • CAA 4-Diamond hotel celebrating its 100-year anniversary in 2015
  • Each weekend, guests can indulge in the royal tradition of afternoon tea, followed by a tour of the historical hotel (based on availability)
  • Complimentary BMW bicycles, arranged through the concierge, can be taken for a spin along the River Valley Trails
  • Edmonton's "lush river valley ... has the looks of an oasis" (Frommer's)


Lovingly referred to as "The Mac", named after Canada's first Prime Minister, this chateau-style hotel opened its doors on July 5, 1915. The building, overlooking The North Saskatchewan River Valley, is an adaptation of French 16th century castles and still delicately pays homage to its roots; guest room closet door knobs are original and monogrammed.

Classically designed rooms give guests the chance to relax in true Fairmont style while overlooking the River Valley or sprawling city skyline. After you check in, be sure to stop by The Harvest Room restaurant serving up Alberta's famous AAA steak or settle into the casual setting of The Confederation Lounge with its spectacular patio. 

For some serious relaxation, indulge at the newly renovated fitness centre with saline pool, steam room, squash court, and fully equipped gym -- complimentary to all guests.

With plenty of nearby sightseeing and shopping and just a 20-minute drive from the famed West Edmonton Mall, the hotel is the perfect home-base for exploring the city.
