Good service, large rooms, nice hotel. A couple things though, check in was a bit messy as the people assisting our group of 5 check in individually seemed confused at times. Also, the cleaning staff, although extremely quick to want to do their job were a bit annoying at times ( 8am knocking on my door wanting to clean, and... More

We stayed for 1 night in March, kind of a spur of the moment trip. We went to a maple syrup festival in Richelieu park, which was great, by the way. The Lord Elgin hotel was very comfortable, wonderfully located (walking distance to the Parliament Building and to shopping, and a short drive to restaurants and Richelieu park). Staff was... More

I really enjoyed staying here! It was my first time in Ottawa so I wanted something central and this place is perfect. It's a short walk from the key areas of interest I had like the Parliament building, Byward market, museums and downtown in general. It's right on a major bus route so it's easy to get around further out... More

The Lord Elgin is a hotel that I really want to do better and so I keep coming back. My most recent stay was pleasant but it could have been better. The front desk staff (this time) was very professional and effective so top marks to him. I paid for an upgrade with I thought was a bit steep given... More

A warm welcome from the reception desk. Showed us places to visit. Christopher was fantastic. The room was clean and bright with a great view over park. Breakfast was tasty and plentiful, although the staff were not as attentive as reception and cleaning staff. Planning to go back and stay.

Looking for a place for 4 couples to spend a few days and see the sights. Lord Elgin came up on our search and the price and location seemed ideal. When we got there we were very happy with our choice. We had tickets for the NAC we discovered it was just across the street. We like to wander and... More

Stayed here 1 night on a journey to west of Canada.The hotel is very near museums and restaurants.Rooms a large and well furnished with tea/coffee maker,fridge and free Wi Fi(slow).Staff very accommodating. If you stay longer get a room overlooking Confederation Park.I had a room with little light overlooking a yard area,but as I wasn't staying long did not worry.

Overcharged by almost $100 for a single night with the excuse their rates change daily. The room had a queen bed and no amenities, not even a small fridge. However it did come with tattered blinds and a carpet in need of cleaning. I wonder if it mattered that additional nights were corporately covered. Except for the location, I found... More

We were visiting for the World Cup and stayed for 2 nights. This had to have been the smallest hotel room I've ever seen. The room itself was pretty clean but the rest of the hotel could use some work. Bed wasn't the comfiest, the room was only set up with 2 towels (typically 4 is the norm) Staff were... More
