We stayed here for three nights at the beginning of December, my second time staying here. As a Platinum Fairmont's President's Club member, I wanted to experience the benefits associated with this level. We arrived around 4pm, and because our room was not ready, they offered a sitting room to stay in while the room was being prepared. I thought... More

We had a fantastic weekend in Ottawa. Our room was excellent, very spacious and comfortable. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room even had a walk-in closet. My only complaint would be that the water pressure in the shower was poor.

Recently stayed here for a one night trip. This was my first time staying at chateau Laurier and upon entering I was amazed by the grandiose lobby and "castle" feeling of the hotel. Checkin was quick and easy and I was given my room promptly. My room was situated on the third floor and upon stepping out of the elevator,... More

The Chateau Laurier is a piece of Canadian history. Wandering the same halls that many of history's great people have graced gives one a sense of luxury that transcends the beautiful surroundings and superior service.

I stayed at the Fairmont Chateau Laurier in June and November 2014 - in the summer heat and the first snows of winter. It reminds me of the golden age of hotels, in spite of the fact that the property has evolved by adopting modern conveniences. Its convenience to Parliament Hill, the Rideau waterway and Byward Market, make it an... More

I absolutely loved my stay here. The moment you step out of your cab you can expect the highest quality service. I enjoyed tea in Zoe's Lounge and it was the best cup of tea I've had in a long time. My room was luxurious and comfortable and the staff were all friendly and helpful.

As a Fairmont property, world-class service is expected. The Chateau does not miss the mark. Staff were friendly, but conducted themselves with a high level of professionalism. Check-in was prompt. Any requests made to front desk and housekeeping were fulfilled within minutes. The location of the hotel is very convenient if you are visiting as a tourist - right beside... More

Our family snuggled in to a wonderful room with a view of Parliament Hill for a quick trip to Ottawa this weekend. We were total hotel hermits, enjoying dinner at Wilfrid's, and also brunch there on Sunday morning as part of our Bed and Breakfast package (definitely worthwhile!). A charming Grand Dame of a hotel, the bathroom was not spacious,... More
