4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

It's been a couple years since my last stay here. This time I stayed for 5 nights for work. The gym has definitely improved as the equipments have been replaced with new ones. Room is clean and spacious. However, I found the housekeeping staff a little bit too eager. I had the "do not disturb" sign on the door but... More

The Lord Elgin is an old Ottawa landmark with many delightful late Art Deco features. The room was clean and well laid-out, but not overly large. The small bath was also well laid out and well lit. The TV was balky -- the response from the remote was slow. Sadly, BBCWorld had just been dropped from the channel line-up and... More

The hotel room was very good and the service was amazing. Good deals and eco-fees. Close to everything in Ottawa downtown. I loved my days back there. Close to the mall, the market and the art gallery. You can walk to the Rideau canal. The complex has a good swimming pool and a gym.

Stayed for four nights recently on business. Hotel has a lot of character and reminiscent of older hotels in Chicago. Room was small but comfortable, bed and pillows were fair. Had a few minor issues: package was received by hotel staff on Sunday night, was not notified until Wednesday morning. Upon checking in, hotel receptionist's attitude changed somewhat when we...

I stayed here while visiting Ottawa last week on business and everything from the Front Desk staff, to the Bell Boys, to the restaurant staff and housekeeping were very good. My room was clean and bright. The hotel was pretty busy for late March and was buzzing with energy. Highlight of the stay was the in house bartender, Scott. He... More

I went to the Lord Elgin hotel with my girlfriend for an improvised romantic getaway, and we booked our room while already on the road to Ottawa with Hotel Tonight (which also gave us an awesome deal). The hotel is very classy, and the service is great. Rooms are very cozy, and while I may agree with other reviewers saying... More
