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.

  • Situated just minutes from top attractions
  • Take a swim in the grand art-deco indoor pool
  • Historic turreted building dating from 1912
  • Three different eating and drinking venues
  • Soak up the grand antique surrounding

Spectacular... almost.

Chicago, Illinois

Visited in the dead cold of winter to skate on the Rideau canal, a dream come true. The hotel looks so majestic and castle-esque from the exterior. The interior upon entering is as spectacular. Well.... the rooms themselves could use a little work. They look a little worn and well used. They look nice but worn. The hallways, as well. Elevators could use some sprucing up also. They need to look as good inside as the doors to them do outside. People working there were FANTASTIC! I find that typical of Fairmont properties. Can't say enough nice things about them. Would stay here again but hotel does need some attention to detail for a Fairmont property. Now let's talk about skating the Rideau canal....

Classic Elegance in Ottawa

Ottawa, Canada

Chateau Laurier remains the best and most classic hotel in Ottawa. Beautiful nineteenth century architecture on the outside, accompanied by the same classic interior design throughout the hotel. The staff is very friendly.
