A must-stay for anyone visiting the Capital City. The area is alive with activity - and very safe. The hotel is a national treasure within walking distance of the Parliament. The rooms are comfortable and very clean. The best part was the staff - extremely accommodating and helpful. Fairmont is doing a great job with this one.

This is a classic "art deco" hotel with a long history. The lobby, the ballroom and the lounge are majestic. There's marble, "fresques", mirrors, and precious wood everywhere. Location is ideal, just next to the parliament and overlooking the Rideau canal. The hotel's underground parking is very convenient, although a bit expensive (especially if you fall for the valet -...

Stayed in late August, I had booked in February this year. It had been recommended to me for afternoon tea. I thought that we may as well overnight there too. The building is, of course striking and the location is great. We had been 'upgraded' due to their renovations...as we entered the suite we noticed the musty smell. The Porter...

This hotel is the best hotel we've stayed in. Friendly attentive staff from the doormen to the house staff. Would definitely stay there again. The hotel is in the perfect location in Ottawa and like most of the Fairmont hotel's in Canada, dominates the skyline.

If you stay at the Chateau Laurier and are only interested in the main sights Ottawa has to offer, there is absolutely no need to rent a car nor to pay the hotel's $30 per day parking charge.
