This hotel is truly top notch. Located in the heart of Ottawa - and the official hotel of the Tulip Festival. Everything was perfect during our stay. The staff (front desk, bell hops, valet, wait staff, room service staff, janitors) were all very helpful and friendly. We really enjoyed the location and the Grill 41 restaurant. We also enjoyed making...

Along with two teenage young adults on a week long, first time visit to Canada, Ottawa was the second of four cities we were visiting. The room and quality of the hotel was great! But the most important feature I was looking for when choosing a hotel was the location. After visiting I can confirm the location is the best...

It has great location. Its only 10 minutes walking from the Parlament. The personnel gave us tips about what to do at Ottawa. It was very clean and has spacious rooms. It has a Starbucks inside. The pool and jacuzzi were great!

I booked this hotel predominantly for location, which was great in terms of walking distance to all the sights. The staff are friendly and helpful, beds are fantastically comfortable, best nights sleep in ages! We didn't have breakfast included however we went to the hotel restaurant anyway and the buffet for $19 was very good, staff great and plenty of...

The hotel is one of three very centrally located in Ottawa. Staff went out of their way to meet all our needs and requests and although our room was a little small it did have a view of the park , tulips and canal. I would not recommend the breakfast buffet that had mediocre food

To start off, the website where I booked my room told me to specify our time of arrival, so I decided to arrive between 10-11am. Once I arrive, they tell me they can't accommodate me until 3pm. I tried to explain my situation to the lady at the front desk but I guess they don't receive a lot of complains...

Had an amazing stay at Lord Elgin with my wife and two kids (a new born and a 3 years old). The staff are great, friendly and go above and beyond to help their customers. Delicious breakfast, nice pool, Starbucks in the lobby, and above all right in the center of Ottawa (you can literally walk to the parliament building!)...

The Lord Elgin was great. It has a good pool and gym. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The staff is friendly and the location is excellent. Visit the scone witch down the street for a delicious breakfast.
