We were 4 nights in Ottawa. We were in an older room, so not as elegant as the newly remodelled rooms, but spacious and comfortable. I understand they are updating all the rooms. Staff are all excellant. Walking distance to everything downtown. This our second stay and will look forward to a third.

Good breakfast buffet. Room was fine. Kind staff. Central location. It was quiet and clean and the WiFi was complimentary. Sometimes you don't need two hundred characters to give a good review, Thanks!

Visited Ottawa and stayed at the Lord Elgin Hotel for three days recently, with my wife and two Canadian friends. The car was taken care of by valet parking, with as many ins and outs as one required all in the daily price ($30) and retrievable upon ten minutes notice. We received a warm welcome at the Reception Desk upon... More

The Lord Elgin updating of rooms and facilities makes this a comfortable and pleasant stay in the heart of downtown. The room size is certainly adequate and the King Bed we had was very comfortable. The one irritant was the newly done shower did not have a soap rack and the bathroom steamed up. The pool and exercise facility was... More

Fridge, coffee maker and kettle. Gorgeous bathrooms, well lit with glass shower stall. Starbucks located adjacent to lobby. Short walk to Parliament Hill, Confederation Park, and... More

This was my 6th stay at the lord Elgin...my first was in February 2013, and several times in the fall of 2013 and early 2014. I'm sad to see that the front desk has lost a lot of fantastic people....Stacey, Dana, Chris, and Paul were all so fantastic to talk to whenever I arrived, and we're always so helpful and... More

Location is great and service was wonderful. When I logged into the internet I was prompted to take a survey and made a comment about my pillow being too soft; the hotel staff were very quick to ensure that they found me a comfortable pillow. Short walking distance to parliament and many little restaurants and bars. Close to the canal... More

A first class hotel in the heart of Ottawa. It is centrally located to the main attractions located in downtown Ottawa. The front desk offers a letter explaining the construction/remodeling occurring in the hotel. We were part of a bus tour and I do know that they did not assign any of us rooms on the floors being worked on.... More

My newly-renovated room is just wonderful. The bathroom is very nicely done with a huge shower. The beds are super comfortable with great reading lights on headboard. The color scheme is soothing and rooms nicely decorated
