Heart of Ottawa (and Of Canada)

I had a memorable stay at the Fairmont Chateau Laurier. It is a historical landmark in Ottawa, and probably all of Canada. The hotel is expensive, but right so considering its location, the attention to detail and overall quality of its staff. I could not be happier.

Wonderful hotel; excellent accommodations
Reviewed 2 days ago

The Chateau Laurier is excellently located to walk to Ottawa's major attractions. The Gold Floor--with breakfast and evening snacks included--is well worth the extra cost. The bed was amazing and we took advantage of the TV's built-in Chromecast, which enabled us to access our own Netflix account via my iPad.

Wonderful Experience

The stay at the Fairmont Chateau Laurier was a trip back to the majestic character of another era. The character and history of the building is magnificat; great location for our purpose; staff was wonderful and accommodating. Our travel between the Canadian cities we visited was by train, so why not one of the fine old railway hotels! And, it didn't disappoint.

We had a fabulous time with our family. This was our 4th visit. We highly recommend staying on the Gold floor especially if you have children. Great Canape between 5-7pm. Breakfast is fabulous! The Concierge team are stupendous and always professional. Close to Shopping malls, Museums, Parliament Buildings and beautiful marketplace area, great area for walking. If your looking for a mini getaway, this is the place to be to relax.

Really to bad
Reviewed 4 days ago

Unfortunately this was not quite what I have come to expect from Fairmont.
Wonderful staff, truly friendly and personable.
The issue was more with my room. For the amount I am paying I could truly expect so much more. Simple things where just not done. Dirty window, beautiful view but in order to enjoy it I had to actually wipe down the windows.
Shower wall was dirty, the sink drain was full of dirt as well. Really yucky.
What ever happened to the cute little doilies that cover the spare toilet roll. Not here. A Fairmont tradition in my opinion.
The beds looked like they where made in a rush. Perhaps they are short staffed.
I could have honestly stayed at a lower priced place with the same result.
Too bad, truly too bad.
