3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

A good hotel with traditional design and close to the parliament/city centre. The meeting rooms could benefit from some modernisation. Nevertheless, a recommendable house with a good location and decent service.

We have stayed here many times since our son started university in Ottawa (10 years ago). There have been some changes over the years...all good. The staff are always friendly and helpful. The location is perfect for most travelers to the city (who put that hockey /concert venue so far out of town??) We have stayed at several older hotels... More

My group of five had two rooms, unfortunately not next to each other - which is the main reason I am not giving a five - that provided us with comfortable queen beds, two armchairs in the room with two beds, and cleanliness. I was pleasantly surprised that no fault in the care of ensuring overall comfort could be found.... More

The Lord Elgin is a classic hotel located right near the canal and a 5 minute walk to Parliament Hill. IT feels historic but has been renovated to have good amenities. The rooms are comfortable and the pool is good. The fitness club is adequate. Service was very good. Overall the hotels location coupled with its historic feel enhanced our... More

We had a room in the front overlooking Confederation Park and the Shaw Centre which were both decorated with lights for the holidays. Just a short walk up the hill to the Parliament. Great location. Extremely pleasant and helpful staff were attentive to our every need. Room was not fancy but very comfortable and clean. We loved Ottawa. Super restaurants... More

My husband and I stayed in the hotel for ten days. The hotel is good enough for the price and very much adjacent to almost all of the landmarks and point of interests in Ottawa. It has the perfect location if the purpose of your visit is more on touring the city by foot. The free wifi is indeed a... More

I stayed here for just one night on business and was very pleased with my experience. People were very helpful, the room and bed was very comfortable, and the location was central. I would definately stay here again.

A very nice hotel right in the middle of everything. I stayed only one night but check in was pretty easy. The woman was alone at the front desk and kept having to answer the phone but I didn't mind waiting too long. The room was small but nice plus free wifi! The only complaint was that the room I...
