We had my daughters wedding in the Laurier room. The room is beautiful the food was amazing and the service was incredible. During the day i went with friends to Zoe's for a drink and snacks and we enjoyed the same great helpful service to the point that many of our guests commented and we were so happy.

Somehow managed to get upgraded into a room that looked out on the Gatineaus and Parliament Hill - possibly the biggest oldest hotel room I've ever stayed in. Fantastic service, truly elegant common areas. Fixtures and furnishings in our room were getting a tad dated and maybe even worn, but it didn't take away from the experience. Really enjoyed our...

Lovely Hotel, staff very helpful. Nice view of the canal and Parliament buildings. Would definitely stay there again. It is such a historical hotel. A piece of Canada's history. Close to shops and a mall.

If you are into history, this hotel has it all. So many great Canadian politicians have visited here or important meetings held in the hotel. So just to feel the energy of this place is amazing. To be honest and fair, this is an older typical Fairmont hotel. Everything is good and adequate but the hotel is probably due for... More

Beautiful hotel. It is the perfect place to stay if you want to walk to the sites in Ottawa. Our room was quite large and quiet even though we were on the second floor. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

Just spending a short stay of two nights in Ottawa, the Fairmont has the near perfect location near Parliament Hill and the Rideau locks. For a large hotel the staff were very helpful and extremely friendly.

A beautiful Grande Dame North American hotel. Stylish. Well kept. We were upgraded to a corner suite which was beautiful and comfortable. In Room Dining at any Fairmont Hotel is amongst the best of North American hotels. Any meal served for two or more persons, they wheel in a table with white linen and you sit comfortably with your mate.

This is a very classy, centrally located hotel. The renovated rooms are large, very well decorated and spacious. We had an interior view, but it was actually to our advantage, since we did not hear the street noise. The pool area is also really great, since it is considerably less stuffy than average.
