We stayed at the Chateau Laurier for just one night, a Saturday night over the Ottawa Marathon Weekend. With the many road closures in the area due to the marathon we were grateful for the hotel’s valet parking. The hotel is situated in a great spot, next door to the parliament buildings and a short walk to ByWard Market where there are many restaurants and shops. We enjoyed snacking on the focaccia bread and cold drinks in the lobby bar. We stayed on the second floor which has lovely carpeting in the corridors and our two rooms were VERY comfortable and felt plush. When we were leaving on Sunday morning housekeeping came down the hall trying to catch us as we had left a pair of sunglasses behind in the room so that was very much appreciated. The only fault I could find is that the water pressure in the shower isn’t super strong as they have a rain shower head and a handheld shower head but the water temperature was very good. This was our second stay at this hotel and I would definitely stay there again.

Expected more from Fairmont.

Probably the coldest meeting rooms ever! Under whelming hotel experience ie., food, room service and status of public washroom. Bottled water was not replenished, cleaning staff ignored do not disturb sign, blow dryer took 40 minutes to deliver. Soap dispensers in public washroom left empty for 2 days.

After a very subpar experience at a hotel nearby, I checked into the Fairmont Laurier. The staff and accommodations made me forget all about the experience I had the night before.

Great stay

The first time at this Fairmont location and it was a great experience. The Gold service was excellent and everyone was so courteous and friendly throughout the hotel and restaurants.

Queen size bed is absurdly small and out of place for a corner suite. Your former main dining room is now only open for breakfast. Your "main dining room" (Zoe's) is more of a loud bistro. In standard Fairmont tradition (ie. Palliser, Jasper Park Lodge, Banff Springs, Empress), you have taken a 5 star dining room and turned it into a family cafeteria.
