We were locals from Ottawa staying at the hotel because it was our Anniversary. Because it was our Anniversary and also that I had privilege through Aeroplan, we were able to stay with Fairmont Gold, which is a Hotel within a Hotel. The staff were extremely helpful and the room that was given to us had a view of Parliament and the Ottawa River. We also received a plate full chocolates with chocolate drizzle that said Happy Anniversary along with a card.

Fairmont Chateau Laurier is centrally located in the heart of Ottawa. You cannot pick a better location. Many rooms enjoy a marvelous view of the Parliament Hill and the sunset. Everything is within walking distance, tourist attractions and restaurants. Rooms are spacious, clean and well appointed. The hotel grounds and common areas are grand with a touch of historic charm. Hotel staff try their best, given the size of the hotel, they really do. It can get extremely busy on weekends. Many weddings and events are happening in the reception halls and the main lobby can get overcrowded at times. We had the unfortunate pleasure of checking out at the same time as a wedding party was getting ready to leave, and it literally took 50 mins for the valet to get our car. And then the driveway was clogged with cars loading and offloading, so we could not get out for another 15 mins. Not really a fan of big busy and crowded hotels for this reason. But it was definitely an interesting experience staying at this historic hotel. And the location is unbeatable!
