THE HISTORY BEHIND FAIRMONT HOTEL MACDONALD Fairmont Hotel Macdonald has long been known as the most elegant hotel in Edmonton and is lovingly referred to as ‘The Mac.’ After four years of construction, the Hotel, named after Canada’s first Prime Minister, Sir John A. Macdonald, opened its doors on July 05, 1915 and was destined to become the centre of Edmonton’s social life. Situated high on the bank overlooking the North Saskatchewan River valley, the seven-storey Grand Trunk Pacific Hotel (faced with Indiana limestone and roofed with copper) was built and furnished at a cost of about $2,250,000 (over $35 million today). The characteristic Château style, an adaptation of French 16th Century castles, was first brought to Canada in 1892. After more than half a century of glamour, Fairmont Hotel Macdonald closed its doors in 1983 after the Universiade Games, as it had fallen into a state of disrepair. On January 08, 1985, the City of Edmonton designated the Hotel as a Municipal Heritage Resource (and thereby saving it from the wrecking ball) and was the first building in Edmonton to receive this special designation. Five heritage areas are included in the designation: The building exterior, The Confederation Lounge, the Lobby, the Wedgwood Room, and the Empire Ballroom.
