We enjoyed Downtown Dining week in the Harvest Room restaurant. Our meal was delightful and delicious. Dew Johnny, our server, was very attentive. The atmosphere is always warm and inviting in this restaurant.

We came here for our daughter's birthday celebration. Sunday brunch was held in the beautiful Empire Ballroom (where my husband and I had our wedding reception). The ballroom is as elegant as it was when the hotel first reopened 28 years ago. The beautiful ceiling and

Can you open the window in the room for fresh air?
Some rooms may not have opening windows, but our window facing the valley opened, though only about 6-8 inches. Because of the breeze, that was sufficient, perhaps a bit much, in fact. If you need more fresh air, ask before deciding on a room. BTW, there was no screen in our opening window - maybe that is why it only opens a little?

My many stays at the Edmonton Fairmont MacDonald have been handled always with the utmost decorum. I’m very glad to hear of their quick and complete response to any issues that had arisen during your stay, Frank. Not surprised, to say the least...as on many occasions they went above and beyond the call of duty on our behalf. One time, as I checked in for one of my daughter’s 16th birthday stays, I had somehow misjudged the amount of our stay, and even though I did not expect anything to be done about it...when I checked out, it had been adjusted!!! That’s why I’ve kept going back. My mistake only happened that one time, yet they always seem to have that extra smile and excellent service beyond my expectations.
