This was a great hotel with atmosphere. Clean and everything one could hope for in a city centre. Our room was on 5th floor and more than acceptable for a 3 night stay. The hotel restaurant was reasonable too

All newly renovated - historic landmark Hotel in heart of downtown Ottawa: ideally located in the heart of downtown Ottawa - directly across from Confederation Park, the National Arts Centre and steps away from Byward Market, Rideau Canal, Ottawa Shaw Centre, Parliament Buildings and the Ottawa Rideau Centre. Guestrooms reflect Ottawa's elegance. From the tall picture windows, bold tulip inspired artwork and beautiful marble-tiled washrooms, you cannot help but feel pampered. Ottawa hotel guests enjoy the lap pool with adjoining whirlpool, sauna and fitness and Starbucks on-site.

The Lord Elgin Hotel used to be a pet friendly hotel, however after our 2016 renovations were completed that is no longer the case. We of course will still accommodate guests travelling with their services animals.
