There is nothing better than two windows overlooking the canal, lightly falling snow, ornate fixtures and old world elegance galore. Staying at the Chateau Laurier in Ottawa is a must, in the Winter,......Summer, Spring or Autumn. Just spent 4 nights there and felt like I was somewhere in Europe each time I approached the hotel at the end of the...

I've stayed at the Chateau numerous times and am never disappointed. The location can't be beat, steps from Parliament , the canal, great restaurants and super shopping. It is magical looking. The afternoon tea is quite an event at Zoe's Bar, with little girls in their finest dresses excitedly joining parents for special dates. The large lobby is very much...

My husband and I stayed one night as we had an event to attend downtown Ottawa on Saturday night. We arrived early so we could walk around the hotel and go for a swim. We found out we received an upgrade to a room with a view of Parliament Hill and the canal, wonderful surprise! Right from our arrival we...

Loved the location of this hotel, the friendly staff and the food offerings. The pool is art deco and big but it has no windows and only a few lounge chairs. The High Tea is expensive but the quality is very nice. The morning breakfast buffet was outstanding and the service staff here were exemplary. The front desk and bell...

The Chateau Laurier is a very old facility and is not showing its age well, which is a stark contrast to all other fairmont properties I have stayed at. The hotel is too large, the rooms are too small in particular the bathrooms. Suites made by combining two regular rooms but no alterations to the size or shape of the...

A grand hotel in the classic tradition. Central, posh, yet ready for travellers both snooty and average. I love it here. Be sure to sit in the lobby and see who's coming and going. The archival photos are a treat.

Located walking distance to Ottawa attractions, a shopping mall, good eating places. Pricey place - bring your own water ! Should use some of that money for updating. Very noisy heating system. Avoid rooms by the elevators. Nice lobby and good service. Zoé's Lounge - ⛤⛤⛤⛤

we went to the hotel restaurant for lunch, and the restaurant was fantastic. We brought our baby and the washroom was very far which was not convenience for nursing and changing. The waiter offered us a private room to get changing works done.
