It’s a great old hotel with updated rooms and amenities. My room was spacious and well appointed with an excellent sized TV. The lobby was nice with a seating area where you could enjoy a drink and chat. Staff were helpful and pleasant.

We stayed there Dec 29-31. Rooms were fairly clean. Hotel staff was good. Hair in the ice bucket. Pool nice but small. Breakfast was ok but not worth 20.00 an adult. Valet parking was 30.00 a day which is alot to park your car.More

About
Description
All newly renovated - historic landmark Hotel in heart of downtown Ottawa: ideally located in the heart of downtown Ottawa - directly across from Confederation Park, the National Arts Centre and steps away from More Byward Market, Rideau Canal, Ottawa Shaw Centre, Parliament Buildings and the Ottawa Rideau Centre. Guestrooms reflect Ottawa's elegance. From the tall picture windows, bold tulip inspired artwork and beautiful marble-tiled washrooms, you cannot help but feel pampered. Ottawa hotel guests enjoy the lap pool with adjoining whirlpool, sauna and fitness and Starbucks on-site. Less

The Lord Elgin Hotel used to be a pet friendly hotel, however after our 2016 renovations were completed that is no longer the case. We of course will still accommodate guests travelling with their services animals.
