Rented a room two days ago with a city view… room 249 , view of a roof and with binoculars you could see top portion of the art museum. Refrigerator didn’t work . Two tiny cramped bathrooms . Some guy took our temperature on the wrist. We work in a hospital and the only accurate temperature is far from the wrist … so why bother in the first place. The parking is 40$ !!!

Just got back from a long weekend at the Fairmont. The hotel is absolutely beautiful! The architecture is amazing, lobby, rooms, and all public spaces are incredible. Very Old World charm but completely renovated. Stayed in a Gold level room which gave us access to breakfast every morning in the Gold Lounge as well as Happy Hour and desserts nightly. Well worth the extra price. The room was very large, comfortable and updated with everything you'd need. The staff at the Gold level were all amazing and could not have been more helpful, polite and friendly. As we were in town to skate the Rideau Canal the concierge at the Gold Level hooked us up with a company that delivered our ice skates directly to the hotel in 15 minutes. And we were able to keep them for the day for less than a 2hr rental in other places. I highly recommend the Fairmont and also the upgrade to the Gold Level.

Such an amazing hotel experience even during covid. Staff were friendly and accommodating! The safety measures taken were the best I’ve seen. The hotel had so much character inside and was absolutely stunning. Great location that’s close to everything!

Premium rooms should come with premium services and amenities, particularly with the hotel nearly empty during covid. We love the chateau and have spent many nights here over the years. We really wanted to treat ourselves after packing up our ottawa home of many years but were disappointed with the ineffective HVAC, poor shower pressure and lack of place settings for the in-room dining table. Overall we felt it was overpriced, we didn't get a good night's sleep because the room was hot and even exiting the parking garage was problematic because the exit gate wouldn't read the ticket that was provided. Overall our experience ended up being negative and feeling underappreciated.
