My sister and I stayed at the Fairmount Chateau Laurier for four days in September 2021. Will never stay here again. The first morning I woke up and saw a makeup stain on the bottom of the duvet facing down. NOT MY MAKEUP! Obviously, they just turned the duvet over. I didn't flip out, I just called down for a new duvet Had to ask twice. They brought a new one up and then cleaned our room while we were out that day. Without telling us. Just glad I used the safe. The next morning I made coffee only to turn the cup around to take a sip and saw and bright red lipstick print on the rim. This time, I did flip out. So I called to have the Hotel Manager come to the room. They sent a very young, very impatient person to role her eyes at me. Talk about adding insult to injury. This would have been horrifying before Covid. I don't have the words to describe how disgusted I am at the lack of Covid protocol. This isn't even basic cleanliness. This hotel is dangerously dirty!!!!! And then, to top it all off, they charged us for using the parking garage for four days when we only stayed in it for two days. When we pointed out the mistake, they lied and said we were supposed to tell them when we weren't using the garage even theough they gave us tickets to punch to enter and leave the garage. The person who checked us out of the hotel was the same person who checked us in and he did NOT tell us that. Seriously, what is happending to the world???

Hotel's Favourite
Just got back from a long weekend at the Fairmont. The hotel is absolutely beautiful! The architecture is amazing, lobby, rooms, and all public spaces are incredible. Very Old World charm but completely renovated. Stayed in a Gold level room which gave us access to breakfast every morning in the Gold Lounge as well as Happy Hour and desserts nightly. Well worth the extra price. The room was very large, comfortable and updated with everything you'd need. The staff at the Gold level were all amazing and could not have been more helpful, polite and friendly. As we were in town to skate the Rideau Canal the concierge at the Gold Level hooked us up with a company that delivered our ice skates directly to the hotel in 15 minutes. And we were able to keep them for the day for less than a 2hr rental in other places. I highly recommend the Fairmont and also the upgrade to the Gold Level.

Visited on our way back to Maine from Montana. Chose to stay in a hotel with some history and character. Fairmont is downtown in a great location. Room was small, especially the bathroom and parking is a pain.

(This review relates to a previous stay at the Chateau during August, not our most recent stay). The hotel is beautiful, but the level of service does not match the nightly cost. The hotel needs to take time to train new employees on how to provide the quality of service we expect. Examples: - We requested a crib which was never delivered to our room. When it was finally delivered, the hotel had no sheets except a new set which had never been washed. - When calling to ask for bar-service at 10 pm, I was informed that everything in the hotel had shut down and no alcohol was available. I then went to the bar in person and picked up some champagne. The concierge staff should be fully aware of your hours and services. - The quality of service at the patio was poor. The server was covering too many tables and my breakfast was poorly cooked. Eggs over-easy were still mostly raw. Other tables were making complaints and having great difficulty.

This is a great hotel worthy of a 4 1/2 Star (I bumped it to a 5 as there was no 4 1/2 choice). Everything about this place was awesome: the rooms, the ambiance, the staff, its location (close to everything)....we loved it. Many others that we were staying with (...we were there for a wedding) did have 'concerns' with the restaurant inside the hotel however which included: not best quality for the prices charged & lengthy wait time. I see countless places throughout the city with a sign "now hiring": although I don't know the situation with this restaurant. It seems since Covid, many restaurants struggle with getting adequate staff. As far as the hotel itself, I would highly recommend it. My wife & I chose to go off-site to dine, so I can't comment on the restaurant...was just sharing what other guests were saying.
