Hotel's Favorite
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.

You are luxury hotel, but: - The look of the room is awful, old, use - The room smells the dust - The coffee machine has no plug and you try to find where to plug in (3 coffee for 2, shall make a battle for the last?) - For breakfast you forget the 2d plate - The bathroom is from another age, and finding the good temperature is a pain in the ass. Never again!

Ever since touring the Chateau Laurier as a university student I've wanted to be a guest to have the entire Chateau experience including Tea at the Chateau. December of 2021, despite COVID, I made the trip and had the experience!!! Given all the challenges hotels face during the pandemic , I found the staff to be exemplary, rooms luxurious and the Tea wonderful. Also had a wonderful massage, exploring the history of the property was interesting. Looking forward to visiting the Chateau Laurier again as well as other properties in the group.

Called to cancel our reservation when the Senators game we were going to was cancelled. They have refused to refund the $425 charged for the room even though we did not use it. Game was cancelled due to Covid for the team. This place is a rip off!
