My husband and I lie in Ottawa but we booked a night away from the kids. We were upgraded to a Deluxe room with a king bed and sitting area. The room was VERY comfortable and well decorated,.We had dinner at Zoe's Lounge. The service was a little slow, but it was busy and we were not in a hurry... More

I highly recommend this hotel. It's in the heart of the city. Walking distance from nice shopping stores. Service was outstanding! Check in was fast and very friendly. We were offered an upgrade, but it was well worth the extra money paid. Stay, let your soul travel to an amazing experience!

Very professional and courteous staff, excellent breakfast, comfortable room. My only complaint is about the TV remote control, but then again it seems that no hotel TV remote works as it should. That being said, the TV was the least important aspect of our stay at the Chateau Laurier.

My husband and I stayed here for the long Easter weekend. Great central location and lovely room. My only other comment would be that for the calibre hotel free bottled water should be provided in the room. $9 a bottle not worth it. Also wifi was hit and miss in the bedroom. The staff were professional and friendly and the... More

This review will be an unfortunate summary of good and not so good (NSG). We were so looking forward to visiting Ottawa for the Easter weekend. A quick getaway with the 'kids' (19 & 16) was long overdue. From the beginning there was only one place to stay, the Fairmont Chateau Laurier. When you arrive there is a certain WOW... More

Just loved the elegance and charm of a great historical building. Our Deluxe King corner room was quite a hike from the lifts but well worth the effort. Had a good view of the city and found the location ideal to explore the city by foot. Enjoyed finishing the evening with a night cap in the piano bar which just... More

In the exact part of town where we wanted to be........lovely hotel, great rooms, and excellent service. Extremely quiet. Never heard noise from other rooms or from the hallway. Restaurants were nice, although expensive.

The Laurier is special. Yes it is turn if the century and standard rooms are a little dated but it exudes a charm. Staff are professional and welcoming. If you get a good rate stay in a Fairmont Gold room. They are very nice.
