I was the project manager on a similar hotel [ renovation. $ 15 mill ] in Winnipeg -- the Fort Garry Hotel - built in 1911,,, the macdonald hotel is clean, the rooms and public areas are not neglected, the ballrooms are more than acceptable for public lunches and social events,, there is no lack of maintenance and upkeep,, there is no ventilation noise in the bedroom at night,, I had a good sleep, the drapes are heavy enough to keep out daylight in the morning, the view of the river valley gave me time to reflect on the progress of Edmonton and the people who have built the city and culture.
Hotel was great had stayed years ago was close to Shaw conf center we did a concert then a hockey game next night and very close to train.Met some NHL And CFL players at hotel pretty cool.Hotel top notch
I showed up at 12 noon while the check in time was 3 pm but they accommodated me immediately without any fuss. I checked out the next day almost at 12:30 pm which was late but again they did not make any fuss about the check-out time. The facilities were good.
So close to the West Ed mall ! Kinda confusing at first as when you exit out onto the road you need to go over 4 lanes. Walking distance to great places to eat ! Such as a alberts and cora's, both less then 5 minutes away ! The hotel has breakfast as well but with it being a weekend it was packed when we got down there, it smelled amazing though ! The rooms are a decent size where you can get your suitcase out and not be tripping on it ! Bath tub was a great size for soaking in after a day out, maybe it was just the room we had, but the tap was a bit harder to turn when getting hot water when using shower, water pressure was great ! Loved that the sink and was located outside of the bathroom so if I was showering someone else could be getting ready and have the mirror right there ( I know you feel me girls ). Front staff were so quick and efficient at check in time ! Wifi was also easy to access ! Only 25-30 minute drive to Rexall Place, there was no construction at the time !
This is our second time we stayed at this hotel. The rooms are updated with wood floors and ceramic tiles, which help to keep the rooms smelling fresher. The bedding and towels are in excellent condition and smell and feel very fresh and clean. The staff are very friendly.
