6.0 Okay
There was no free wifi without signing up for their loyalty program which was unfortunate.
8.5 Very good
Pros:Great location views etc
Cons:Noisy part of downtown
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:It was a very nice evening the room and bedding were amazing
Cons:The whole ambience of the hotel is quite amazing
2.0 Poor
Cons:When I arrived to the hotel after a long day of travel I was told that "due to unforeseen circumstances" they did not have my room. Basically the hotel overbooked itself and gave away the room that I had a confirmed reservation for. They didn't even bother to call me in advance and let me know. Instead they just let me arrive at the hotel and sent me around the corner to a hotel of a significantly lower quality and level of service. I am appalled by this experience and will never book a room at any fairmont property ever again.
9.4 Wonderful
Pros:The Staff were amazing , the view of the valley was very nice. I was thrilled to stay in a hotel which played a major Roll in the development of Edmonton, Alberta and Canada. For this reason the Mac is priceless history. I will be back
Cons:Small room garbage on the lower patio
8.2 Very good
Pros:Smudge the dog was adorable and you can never get better mattresses and pillows than at a fairmont guaranteed
Cons:The mouse/mice in the lounge
9.4 Wonderful
Pros:We loved that we could walk the dog, and the friendly staff.
