Amazingly well versed staff greeted me and took care of my needs with everything from check-in, parking, breakfast and orienting myself to the city. The christmas tree lighting and the hotel dog are wonderful little touches which bring something different to the experience. Hotel staff on several occasions stopped their un-related jobs to help me with questions and directions. Always... More

We stayed here for a night for our anniversary; it was both of our first time staying here and we were quite excited. Paid extra for a special anniversary arrangement to be prepared when we checked in; message on card was not as instructed, rather was indicative of a previous relationship. That was a miss. Staff kept making mistakes with... More

The staff at this hotel are amazing. And I don't say this lightly. An unfortunate event occurred during our stay here, we broke some glass in the room within the first 30 mins of arrival. I was informed that there would be a significant charge to my account for the damages, this was to be expected as we did break... More

This hotel is very over priced from food to drinks to the water bottle in the room. Our room was very small and the temperature was hard to control. We could hear everything the people in the next room were saying. The only plus to this hotel was the excellent service.

This was my first stay at the Hotel Macdonald in a couple of years. Since the last time that I was there, they have opened a Fairmont Gold floor. It was fabulous. The decor was great, the food offerings at breakfast and in the evening were varied and yummy. Nella greeted me and was very helpful and gracious. Great stay.
