Reflecting the confidence, dignity, and style of Ottawa, Fairmont Chateau Laurier stands as a testament to this dynamic and thriving city. Located in the heart of Canada's capital, next door to the Parliament Buildings, the landmark Fairmont Chateau Laurier hotel in Ottawa is a magnificent limestone edifice with turrets and masonry reminiscent of a French chateau. Summer or winter, we make healthy activities simple. The Rideau Canal offers miles of bicycle and inline skating paths, as well as the world's largest skating rink, and is located just outside our door. The nearby Gatineau Hills offer great hiking, biking, and canoeing. In the winter, experience the cross-country ski trails and excellent downhill thrills. With Winterlude, the Tulip Festival, and countless other festivals, Ottawa is a flurry of activity. Once you've taken in the wealth of sights, drop by the Fairmont Chateau Laurier hotel Health Club or satisfy your appetite at one of our superb restaurants. Revel in the distinctive hospitality of Fairmont Chateau Laurier - your stay is guaranteed to be a memorable one.

Week-end getaway

Ottawa has so much to offer and when you stay at the Chateau Laurier , it's all at your fingertips! The Byward Market, Confederation Park, the Rideau Centre and Canal, concert halls and Parliament are all within walking distance. We had our choice of any kind of food, drink and entertainment We wished. The hotel itself is so beautiful and grand, we felt like royalty staying there and were treated like royalty by the best staff I've ever seen. We loved the pool and our room was comfortable and clean. I didn't want to leave but I know we'll be back!

The atmosphere of the hotel is very warm and full of charm. The room is well appointed and the service attentive. They upgraded us because they made an error in the reservation. We really appreciated that gesture.

mixed feelings

This is a very nice hotel and the location is perfect just a block away from the Parlament and the river. The hotel is famous. However, I was very disappointment that despite its high price I had to pay extra for internet connection and extra for parking. It is a pity that such a luxurious hotel with its fame does not give these ammentities to all guest. You have to become a member to get it for free. After visiting Ottowa we drove to Toronto. We are staying at a Days Inn which is less expensive but includes free parking, internet, and breaksfast. The Fairmount was not a great deal.
