Fairmont Chateau Laurier

AAA Four-Diamond Chateau hotel

Situated next door to the Parliament Buildings, Chateau Laurier is perhaps Ottawa’s most iconic hotel, dating from 1912 and designed in the French-Gothic chateau style. Inside and out, this hotel exudes period elegance, heralding from the Golden Age of hotel comfort. Charm and stateliness still reign supreme in this hotel but it has moved with the times too – there’s a modern fitness centre, up-to-date room facilities and even a tour guide app for exploring the hotel. Soaring high above the streets, this turreted masterpiece is beautifully positioned overlooking the Rideau Canal and set just minutes from plenty of top attractions. For an historic, luxurious stay in Ottawa look no further.

Everything you would expect and more.

My stay was only for one night but we were very impressed with the Chateau Laurier. The common areas were beautifully kept and decorated and the room was spacious, luxurious and even had an excellent view overlooking Parliament. The staff, from the valet to the front desk, were super friendly and helpful. They even allowed us to check-in way earlier than the usual time (before 9am) which was very appreciated. I only hope I can stay longer next time!

We are just finishing up a wonderful week here. We were disappointed to learn before our arrival, that the pool is closed for maintenance. When we expressed our disappointment, we were quickly offered an upgrade. Our room is huge, has a full bathroom including bath tub which is a huge bonus for me. The food was delicious, our room was spotless and everyone is wonderful welcoming. Would recommend for anyone!
