Best location. Toiletries are not very green. Fairmont should move to wall-mounted toiletries. shampoo, conditioner, soap, lotion.

Location, location, location. You're in the center of it all and the major highlights are within walking distance. The afternoon tea service was super cute, but waaay to much food if you're a party of one.

This is an historical landmark, just steps away from the Parliament Building and the Rideau Canal. Simply beautiful!

This hotel is conveniently located to the most popular sights and attractions all within a walkable distance.

liked the history and old-style decorations. staff very friendly and the view was amazing

The best location in downtown Ottawa. Able to walk (or skate) to everything we were interested in.

Stayed between Christmas and New Years! The stunning lobby was even more beautiful with the Christmas trees that local businesses placed for charity auction. Staff was very attentive to all our needs from the valet parking through check in and inquiries about local museums. My room was perfect with a fabulous view of Parliament. We partook in the Sunday brunch and recommend it to everyone to try. Definitely will be staying there again

Beautiful historic building next to the Parliament Buildings and the Rideau Canal.

Nice hotel, decent size room but small bathroom. Staff were nice enough. Fine experience for a couple days.

Close to everything to see in Ottawa, all walkable, so central!

Loved the hotel and the staff. The staff is exceptional and helps you at every turn!

Positives: The hotel is opulently beautiful, it is a historic landmark for the city of Ottawa. The general splendor is breathtaking and the staff was very friendly and accommodating . The hotel is close to many main attractions, shopping and eateries within walking distance. Negatives: Wi-Fi is not included, the only option for parking is valet which is $45 per day plus tips, there is no complementary coffee maker in the room, and the bathroom was very tiny, had to put many toiletries on the floor.

Stay only two nights but enjoy it to the max. Hotel is located close to parliament and other amenities. The staff was very helpful and nice. If you are not a President Club member I will recommend you apply for this before coming so you can get the extra perks.
