Michael
Business traveller
Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities
For a flagship location in Edmonton, it did not live up to the Fairmont standards at all. Having stayed at many a Fairmont, this one is in need of a major upgrade. The room was dirty, scuffed furniture, ripped curtains, rough towels, and just a general tiredness of the room. The bed was comfortable and the room spacious but other than that, there wasn’t much else to say that was positive. Ordered room service both nights as dining options were limited. $50 for a burger and fries is a bit steep, in my opinion and the quality was nothing to brag about. The service was friendly and helpful and the staff were pleasant. Not sure that I would recommend it or stay again.

The property looks great, very typical of Fairmont hotels. They seem very under staffed, especially in the dining areas and there is a lot of homelessness around the outside of the property. I wouldn't recommend walking around the area at night.
