The Fairmont Hotel MacDonald was built in Edmonton between 1912 and 1915. Designed (in the chateau style characteristic of Canada’s railway hotels) by the architectural firm Ross and MacDonald, it is considered one of Canada’s landmark hotels. It is named after Canada’s first Prime Minister, Sir John A. MacDonald. Duncan and I had the pleasure of spending a weekend here once before we moved to Edmonton (highly recommend fir anyone looking for a treat) and I have loved it ever since. I’ve been driving by it lately from this angle and keep thinking I need to pull over and take a picture so I finally did.
