I attended a conference at the Chateau Laurier in March and was wowed from the minute I spied it in the cab ride from the airport. What a jewel of Old Ottawa. I rank it the best bathtub of any hotel I have ever stayed. From the 1920's I think, and long and deep enough to float in! A perfect... More

Every time I visit Ottawa for work I try to stay at the Chateau Laurier. The location couldn't be better as it's walking distance to all the sites, lots of restaurants and bars. The reception is very friendly and helpful. I generally don't have to queue to check in. The hotel lobby, hallways, bar, elevators, etc. are very regal. Not... More

An elegant place to stay in Ottawa that's steeped in history and centrally located. The architecture of this old lady is truly impressive with updated rooms that blend stylish with sophistication. A special experience.

The piano girl is a regular and great in the lounge weekend nights. Perfect spot for onion soul after a sake on the Rideau Canal. Comfy chairs and historic feeling, of course Fairmont, Vanhorn started the idea, and Hayes (who died on the Titanic and never made the grand opening of the hotel he built here but his widow and...

The first thing you need to realize with these older legacy hotels is that there wil always be some smal annoyances, either to do with roomconfugurations, distance to walk to the elevators, etc. But as long as you can deal with stuff like that, then there is so much of a special feel to a property like the Chateau. First,... More

I'll be honest, this wasn't my first choice of hotel in Ottawa but my first choice was sold out. I didn't have a great experience last time I stated at Chateau Laurier, but the team was amazing this time. My late arrival provided me an upgrade in my room, which is a little tired but elegant. I appreciated the breakfast... More
