Over Fairmont Chateau Laurier
Dit voorname hotel, dat doet denken aan een Frans kasteel, ligt naast de al even statige parlementsgebouwen, centraal in de stad. U kunt in stijl dineren het restaurant, in de zomer ook buiten op het terras met spectaculair uitzicht. Zelfs het zwembad heeft een chique uitstraling.

Ottawa, de hoofdstad van Canada, ligt in het oosten van de provincie Ontario, op de grens met Quebec. Hoewel het momenteel een van de snelstgroeiende steden van heel Noord-Amerika is, kan het centrum van de stad uitstekend te voet verkend worden. Vooral de buurt rondom de Byward Market is een populair wandelgebied. U kunt Parliament Hill bezoeken, het Canadian War Museum en vele andere musea.
"A wonderful hotel, the best friendly staff, good location."
A great "winterlude" hotel with the very kindest staff, comfortable rooms, great views, good location. Missing a star because each of three nights I had sleep disturbed by noise and the hotel doesn't do much about it after called. Construction on the terrace side and across the street but the other side is a park overlooking the river. The Wilfrid's breakfast wasn't good, but the view is; Zoe's is great food and drinks. If you get the tiny rooms far far from the elevator, change rooms - I'm so glad I did. The vintage pool area is perfection. There is a rowing machine in the fitness room.
"No better place to celebrate Canada's 150th!"
Ottawa's Chateau Laurier is a true icon having a fantastic cultural history and no better location to access some of the Capital's must-see attractions. From our corner room, we could see the Peace Tower on Parliament Hill, the Rideau Canal locks, the National War Memorial, the National Art Centre, the old Conference Centre which was originally a train station, and it's replacement, the new Shaw Centre. The Rideau Centre and Byward Market are literally steps away. The historical property has been renovated and our room was spacious, modern and surprisingly quiet for such a busy location. We wanted to spoil ourselves with a short "staycation" and were very happy with the choice.
The Chateau Laurier is a beautiful old hotel with renovated room. As it is an older hotel, the rooms are small. Our 5th floor room had a great view of Parliament. It's conveniently located near Parliament, the Rideau canal (and Winterlude activities), the Byward market, and a shopping center. The gym is decent sized for a hotel gym with ample machines, weights, etc. There is a swimming pool, but no hot tub.
"Older hotel missing the details "
This property is dated (lobby, restaurant, hallways) but maintained and clean. Room was spacious, but missing some of the usual Fairmont amenities, the little things I rely on when travelling, like the lint brush in the closet, the shoe shine service, bottled water at turndown, slippers etc. Front desk service is excellent but the little things remained frustrating - poor service at the gift shop, and challenges getting the included breakfast removed from the bill (which was never resolved). There is also no steam room or sauna, which for the four star level is a fairly basic amenity. The real weak point is the restaurant/bar Zoe's. It's my second visit in a short span of time my and second issue with this restaurant. Table service is okay, but food service is slow (it took over a half hour for a bowl of soup) and the food was clearly sitting ready with no servers to deliver it out to guests. Food was sent back cold once and the second try was barely warm. Food quality is also not great. I'm very loyal to Fairmont (typically) but there are other good choices in Ottawa including the Westin and new Delta.
Stayed here for two nights on business, a week ago. My first time at the Chateau, although I've stayed at other Fairmont properties. Like certain of those (The Empress in Victoria three years ago) it seems past it's best-by date. Yes, the exterior is wonderful, dropped down right next to the Parliament Buildings. The lobby is huge and wanders aimlessly -- there were very few people in the back areas or downstairs in the Health Club and Business Centre -- rather scary. Much of the furniture in the lobby areas looks tired and frayed. Zoe's Lounge (I've been there before) is magical at the right times of day, especially with the cocktail music. Wilfred's (the restaurant) is nice, but laid out strangely; the food is acceptable, but not exceptional, and the menu isn't extensive. I had expected better. The roast beef had to go back one evening to be warmed up before I could eat it. My room was 'up in the garret', terrible view but otherwise excellent -- not modern, but updated, warm, comfortable and well appointed. The king-size bed was extremely comfortable. I worked up an appetite just walking to the elevators -- long, long corridors and very challenging to find your way around (again, like The Empress). The service standards (front desk, restaurant, etc.) were good and the concierge was exceptional -- she remembered my name on the second day, despite hundreds of guests (unfortunately I don't remember hers!) and she was unfailingly helpful. The Chateau has atmosphere, I'd probably go back....but large areas of the hotel need a re-think and a facelift.
