Stayed in the Elgin for four night with coworkers on a business trip. First stay at this hotel. The room was ready when I arrived and the staff were exceedingly helpful . The room was a nice size and the bed was comfortable but the decor could be freshened up a bit. It has the "grand old hotel feel" and... More

I booked this hotel online. The hotel staff was very accommodating from the moment we arrived, by giving us an early check-in. Then, when we went to our room, we were not satisfied with the room, so they gave us a free upgrade...amazing service. Rooms are clean and beds are comfortable...it is a very historic building ( beautiful inside and... More

My wife and I stayed at the wonderful Lord Elgin recently during a visit to Ottawa and enjoyed it immensely. Service from valet's to check in to maid service to dining room attendants comes with a smile and professional demeanor. Our room was spacious and comfortable with good ac, wi fi, tv and firm beds. The reception provided excellent mapping,... More

We had a great stay recently. The staff were pleasant, the amenities were good and the location was ideal. The only minor complaint would be the fan in the room sometimes is a bit loud if the grate shifts but the noise isn't unreasonable. The beds are very comfortable though. Would recommend the hotel for any visitors to the city!

The hotel is nice and clean and in a fantastic location. However, you can hear everything from the street level. I stayed on the 5th floor and stayed awake all night from the street noise. I would not stay here again.

This elegant hotel has a wonderfully central location with lots of eateries nearby as well as many tourist highlights. The car is valet parked for you (at a price) and then you can leave it there until you really need it, though there are in out privileges if you want to use them. Excellent facilities and a very large buffet... More

Right in the thick of things, steps away from the parliament buildings, war memorial, Starbucks and so much more. The Hotel and rooms are dated and are somewhat run down. The pool area is dirty but otherwise it's all round good value for being in a downtown area. Parking is extremely difficult downtown if possible it should be avoided.

Spent a weekend in Ottawa for a wedding and stayed at the Lord Elgin and received a great group rate for this great hotel that is centrally located to everything. Because we had two rooms for our family and lots of bags, we forgot one of our suitcases in the room. We did not notice until we got back home... More

We had a very pleasant stay. You cannot find a better location in Ottawa. We were right by Parliament, the Byward Market, etc. As for the hotel itself, the lobby is very nice, the pool and gym were great (although the pool water could be warmer and the hot tub a little less hot). The rooms are OK. Very standard... More
