Booked the trip for business reasons waited over 30mins for valet several times, and could hear lots of noise from other rooms and the elevator all night awful sleep. Clean rooms and friendly service.

Always a relaxing time at the Lord Elgin. From the first contact with a friendly valet staff to the check in customer service group all are so welcoming. Excellent location for strolling parliament hill and the By-Ward Market. Rooms are kept clean and attended to the entire stay. The restaurant is also first class. Would not hesitate to stay again.

We normally would be giving this a great review. But DO NOT STAY HERE DURING THEIR CONSTRUCTION. They neglected to tell us at booking or check in we would be woken up by loud banging (felt like on our walls directly) at 7AM!! Paying a premium to ruin our first nights vacation. Loved the note I found in the room... More

Centrally located in the heart of the city this hotel offered beautiful rooms and exceptional service from all the employees. From the moment you arrive you are treated like a visiting friend rather than a complete stranger. Suggestions are offered for anything you may want to do or see and the staff even lets you in on "the best spots"... More

The Lord Elgin Hotel in downtown Ottawa is just a few blocks from Parliament Hill and the ByWard Market District that houses many pubs, restaurants, shops and even a Farmers Market. It's also just a few blocks from several great museums and near the Rideau Canal. So, as far as location is concerned, you cannot do much better. The rooms... More

We stayed at the Lord Elgin the night of our wedding, and we enjoyed our stay! The room was nice, maybe a little on the small side, and same goes for the bathroom. Great location though, as many of our visiting guests stayed at the hotel as well and were able to walk to everything they wanted to see (including... More

I have stayed at the Lord Elgin for the last 4 years to attend Fortissimo. I thoroughly enjoy staying at this hotel. Front desk staff are very friendly and very helpful and willing to direct you to restaurants or anything else you require. The parking valets are also extremely pleasant and easy to deal with. Would recommend this hotel to... More

The Lord Elgin is perfectly located to see the city! We did a lot of walking! The hotel is undergoing renovation, but that was not a problem! The staff was very friendly and helpful! Get Christopher to help you make "restaurant decisions" at the main desk! We were very pleased with his suggestions!

It's a very big hotel and a great location...has a Starbucks attached as well as a restaurant. The hotel is under renovations right now, but we didn't notice any of it going on while we were there. We got the package that included valet parking and a breakfast buffet. Everything was great but I was disappointed with the breakfast buffet.... More
