Staying at the Fairmont Chateau Laurier was a magical experience. The staff were fantastic and the location/ambiance perfect! The hotel is like a castle and the staff go out of their way to make you feel special. Our room was very nice - not overly fancy or ostentatious, but nice. We had a lovely view and the bed was very... More

Located in the heart of it all in Downtown Ottawa, the Chateau Laurier is simply one of the finest hotels the Capital. From it's high ceilings to it's classic design, I highly recommend a stay here. Navigating into the hotel can be a challenge in traffic, just allow your self a little extra time. Valet parking is $38 per night,... More

We spent one night in a deluxe room on the "Gold" member floor. Great size room but the furnishings are too shabby. The selection at the breakfast lounge was very limited and not so inviting. The rooms desperately need updating.

Beautiful, clean hotel with an abundance of charm. Off put by the fact that the parking garage was supposedly full, but hotel staff were friendly and warm and helped give is other options. Definitely worth it to upgrade to the room with a view of the Rideau Canal.

This is one of the Grand Dames of hotels in Canada. It has an excellent location, friendly staff, wonderful rooms, beautiful interiors and interesting artifacts and archives. Can't imagine staying anywhere else. Definitely recommend staying here.

We felt pampered and relaxed. You can step out of your hotel and walk the parliament grounds, nature or cycling by the canal or shop at the eclectic Byward Market. The hotel is family friendly without leaving out any of the luxuries. Our grandson even had his own little robe. When in Ottawa, this is the best hotel.

This hotel is dated, that being said it is a wonderful place to spend time in grand style. The staff are impeccable and the service is divine. I would have to say that while the price for the breakfast buffet could be considered exorbitant by many, it was the highlight of our trip. Chef Jimmy was such an excellent ambassador... More

The Chateau Laurier is a gorgeous hotel with a rich history. It has a timeless quality and feels grand yet inviting at the same time. The staff were wonderful and courteous, and my room was SO comfortable. (I still can't get over the bathrobe they provided in each room!) The hotel has THE most beautiful swimming pool ever. Though I... More

It was our first time at this hotel. The place was ok, but definitely not worth the price. We stayed at a deluxe king room, and as one could expect, the king size bed was comfortable and the room was huge! Bathroom was just average and the rest of the furniture has seen better days. We also enjoyed the swimming... More
