Gorgeous hotel in a fantastic location. Easy access to Parliament Hill and the Byward Market. Lovely bars and restaurants located within the hotel. The fitness club was also very good, with a lovely Art Deco pool.

The hotel was a delight. We had a magnificently furnished large room that had a fantastic view of the beautiful gardens and Art Gallery of this lovely city. The Hotel is centrally located to a large number of major attractions in Ottawa. The service of the staff was excellent and all were very helpful. Certainly stay again

The best hotel to stay in Ottawa from a location point of view. It is also an historical place and has got a wonderful architecture outside and inside. However the structure suffers from age. In my room the bath tub showed signs of rust and during the night the heating system was very noisy. Wireless is free but with poor...

What's not to love about this hotel? It's so gorgeous. When we visit Chateau Laurier looking your best is a must. :) Close to everything in Downtown Ottawa. We love strolling to Parliament Hill and Bytown Museum. Even if you live in Ottawa, you should stay here for the weekend.
