Highly recommend Fairmont for your wedding!
We just had our wedding at the Fairmont Hotel Macdonald, and it was the best decision we could have made. Everyone involved in the wedding planning process was so kind, helpful, and accomodating. We chose the Empire Ballroom, and it was stunning to say the least. It truly was the most perfect day and weekend. I can't say enough good things about my experience.
Thank you Stefanie, Lyndsay, Kasia, Severiano, Kyle, Julie, Tojo and the entire Fairmont team for helping to make our day so special ❤️ If you are a bride looking for a wedding venue, I highly recommend the Fairmont Hotel Macdonald, you won't be disappointed!Sent on 04/03/2020

A Great Stay-Cation Hotel!
The Fairmont was fantastic for our wedding weekend! We booked the Lois Hole Suite for 3 nights. I used the suite as a get-ready space with my bridesmaids & all the moms on the morning of our wedding, and then my husband and I spent 2 more nights there together. We are from Edmonton and had our wedding in Devon/Spruce Grove, but it was a lovely little escape for our first few days as newlyweds. The staff were always friendly and smiling every time we saw them. We plan to spend our anniversaries at the Hotel Mac in future years!Sent on 04/07/2021

Beautiful venue and top-notch customer service
I had my lunch reception at the Wedgewood Room last spring and it was an amazing experience from planning to execution. I worked with Kasia and although she was new to her role, she went above and beyond to make sure everything went smoothly. Kasia always addressed my concerns promptly. The day of, every one of the catering staff provided amazing, tentative service. All the drinks and food were delicious from what the guests told me (the juices especially). The complimentary hotel stay was lovely as well, it was heartwarming to find sweet treats and a bottle of champagne, plus a handwritten card in the room! All in all, I definitely recommend the Edmonton brides out there to choose Fairmont Hotel Macdonald as THE wedding venue.Sent on 20/04/2020

Married at hotel Mac
My husband and I got married at the Fairmont MacDonald, we expected a Fairmont experience going in with the price we were paying. The wedding coordinator was horrible at getting back to emails promptly considering we can so much to coordinate and plan. We talked about the floor plan many times and when my bridal party showed up for the reception, they had to re organize everything because the hotel had made so many mistakes, our photo booth was not set up, even though I had purchased all the equipment, I had no where to put it, so it all went to waste. And random hotel guests that we did not know were allowed to wander through our reception and take pictures of the event!
It was a beautiful space and the food was amazing, but after all the extra stress I had because of their difficulties, it was not worth it. The bartender was over serving drinks because it was an open bar and they just wanted to charge us as much as they could. Completely shocking.
Our guests who had allergies were not provided with a dish that they could eat after we were assured that they would. The chef had to come prepare them other food last minute.Sent on 02/10/2018
