Fairmont Chateau Laurier

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.

Home away from home with a flare

Montreal, Canada

One is actually welcomed and expected. The 4 th floor gold lounge is to die for: roomy, excellent food, private, big TV with low volume, nice view, choice of drinks, breakfast is amazing, more like à European one....service attentive and discreet. Large rooms, comfy beds. Just need to fix the default in the shower: every time I come to start the shower, I get a load of cold water on my head!

THe gold floor at the Chateau Laurier

Winnipeg, Canada

Excellent as usual - still some improvements need to be made to the room. The bar fridge didn't open and the lighting was inadequate.Also no room in the fridge for my litre of milk which I buy as they charge for any drink removed. Also no bedside clock. The staff are outstanding and the rooms are very nice.
