Anniversary Trip

The Elgin Hotel in Ottawa is excellently located across from Confederation park. It has wonderful views and you can even see the procession of the Changing of the Guard go by each morning. The hotel is clean and classy, and the service was excellent. We went there for our Anniversary and found a lovely card with some chocolates waiting for us. It was a very thoughtful touch. Our stay included a buffet breakfast and one of the servers found us a table by the window without us having to ask. Overall it was a wonderful, lovely stay, and we are looking forward to going back.

Great Stay

Melbourne, Australia

Stayed here for a couple of nights and really enjoyed it, staff were friendly and helpful and always asked if you needed anything while I was waiting for a car etc. THe room was clean and very comfortable and the bed was comfortable too. Close to the main area of the city so easy to walk everywhere. Would highly recommend staing here.
