The Hotel MacDonald is one classy and architecturally ample lady. Coming from the south, you see it standing high on the bank overlooking the North Saskatchewan River Valley. It's one of the old Canadian Pacific Railroad hotels and has been serving guests in great style since 1915.
I have never actually slept here, but have often wandered over from where I was staying at the Westin. In particular, I love wandering around the Lobby and then pretending that I'm on vacation as I relax at their Garden Patio and take in the stunning views. Such elegance can be a little pricey, but it is definitely worth the splurge. And if I ever end up bringing Gayle up to Edmonton, this will be our romantic place to go.

While the Hotel Macdonald still has a lot of old world style hotel elegance, it includes one of the worst rooms I've ever stayed in for its noise. The room was quite small and the bed was located fairly close to the door. There seemed to be an excessively large gap between the bottom of the door and the floor which allowed in all the noise from the hallway including the noise of the nearby elevator. A drunken group in the hallway was so loud, I woke up thinking they were trying to get into my room. Unfortunately, I could not be bothered to do anything about the room or the noisy revellers since my sleep had already been disturbed.
I would recommend checking your room to ensure you don't get a similar room with a huge gap under the door with the bed too close to the door. You will want to ask for a different room before you get awakened in the middle of the night.
