The Chateau was an amazing place to slay. It still hold all its History and its glamour. We stayed for new years eve in the kind bed parliament view suite. The bed was huge but unfortunately for such an outstanding hotel the rooms were quite small. The pool was beautiful and was always the perfect temperature but unfortunately no sauna or steam room. The service was superb through out the entire hotel from the bell boys to the care staff. Would recommend.


Wonderful hotel with spectacular service!

Our flight arrived early at11:00AM and went directly to the hotel to see if we could check in early. Our hostess Zoe immediately confirmed that she could check us in early, and even offered us upgraded rooms with a view of Parliament. She took us to the rooms to show us around. I have never had such service at ANY hotel! Once checked in she texted to confirm that we were satisfied with the rooms.

The rooms were very nice, Small but extremely comfortable and clean. During out stay we toured the hotel extensively. Its like a museum. Old world charm is everywhere. We tried the pool which was like going back in time 100 years. Clean, large, quiet and with vintage heat lamps from the early 1900's.

We dined at Zoe's and had excellent service, drinks and meals.

The hotel is centrally located and perfect for skating on the Rideau canal.

I cannnot say enough good things about Farimont Chateau Laurier, and we will definitely stay there again on our next trip to Ottawa.

The service was A+++++

Lovely Room but noisy room location
Reviewed 3 days ago

The room and customer service was excellent; however, the location of the room was terrible. Right next to lifts and hotel staff cupboard. Very noisy both nights that I stayed there - noise from the hallway as well as a noisy guest in the room next to mine.

Great location
Reviewed 4 days ago

Great staff, location is awesome, nice room, we will be back. We had a great winter escape skating on the canal and various other winter activities. Not cheap but well worth the extra money. To stay in a historic building of this caliber.

We have stayed at the Fairmont,in Ottawa, several times and have never been disappointed. The building is beautiful and rooms, staff, cleanliness all as perfect as the location
Visiting twice this year to skate on the Rideau Canal, again location is perfect, about a 5 minute walk to a warm room on the canal to put on your skates and leave your boots.
