The Fairmont Hotel Macdonald

The Fairmont Hotel Macdonald

This downtown chateau-style icon, built in 1915, dominates a high bank above the North Saskatchewan River valley, which guests can explore on the hotel’s mountain bikes. Famous for its Scotch collection, the Confederation Lounge is everything you’d expect from an after-work spot for the city’s power brokers: Something about being ensconced in green leather and red velvet and surrounded by wood panelling makes you feel like you’re about to ink a multimillion-dollar oil deal.
