My husband, daughter and I spent four glorious nights at the Chateau Laurier in Ottawa over the July 4th weekend. Although our stay started off rocking when we initially assigned a tiny room on the second floor with out a view, the front desk manager interceded and we were moved to the spectacular room 600. Room 600 is located in... More

Rooms with soaring ceilings, great beds and washrooms. The best location in town. Was able to see the Peace Tower from my bedroom window. Easy parking with in and out privileges. Good breakfast buffet with great crepes.

We stayed for 2 nights and expected much more from this hotel. It looks beautiful from the outside and the location is fabulous but rooms tired and beds too small. Our room had 2 double beds but not big enough for my husband and I and 12 year old daughter. The rooms need a make over and could be cleaned... More

The three of us booked in for afternoon tea at 4.15pm last Saturday afternoon (23rd July 2016). I thought it might be a 'traditional cream tea', I was mistaken, this is like a visit into the past and is certainly an 'afternoon tea' with wonderful finger sandwiches [my wife does like egg and the exceptionally attentive waitress swapped the egg...

We spent four days around Canada day at the Laurier. It was a truly amazing experience and conveniently located for the best access to festivities on the hill and in Major Hill park. The food was amazing, the iPad tour that you can get from the front desk was interesting. Best of all was the attentive service that was given... More

Excellent staff, beautiful surroundings, if you miss it, you will miss Ottawa! The location could not be better, just 2 blocks from then market and really good places to eat. Mall across the road, and the canal is next to the hotel.

Checked in without any problems. Very friendly staff. Room however had not been cleaned properly. Hairs left in the bathroom. After complaining we received a note of apology and a box of sweet popcorn. This was an appreciated gesture by guest relations. Rooms and bathrooms are tiny. No ability to open windows for ventilation. This is a problem in the... More

Nothing except the Parliament Buildings is more centrally located in Ottawa. Once you get to the Chateau Laurier, you have no need of a car (and the hotel runs a snappy valet service) to visit the main attractions of Ottawa. It's a destination hotel for weddings and Big Events, so public areas are often crowded, not always with residents. Fairmont... More

If obtaining your room at or close to the check in time of 3:00 pm is important to you, then the Chateau Laurier is not the hotel for you. We booked a King room on January 5, 2016 for a 2 day stay starting July 12, 2016. When we arrived at 4:30pm on July 12th, we were told that our... More
