To start planning your holiday to Fairmont Chateau Laurier


Striking old world grandeur oozes from the Fairmont Chateau Laurier, standing proud right in the centre of the city. This iconic building has recently been lovingly restored featuring beautifully styled bedrooms and wonderful facilities.

Think elegant furnishings and grand bedrooms and famous clientele, the hotel is nearly as recognisable as its neighbour, Parliament Hill. Bursting with turn-of-the-century furnishings, hand-painted ceilings, marble flooring, ornate plasterwork and vast yards of drapery, you will be blown-away with the style and service that exudes from this building.

You can take breakfast, lunch and dinner in the beautiful Wilfrid’s Restaurant, where you will sink into plump armchairs and tuck into things such as seared scallops, stuffed quail, prime rib and spice-brined duck. The breakfast menu includes a spicy shakshouka alongside skillets and omelettes, and a daily smoothie. For lighter meals and an alfresco patio ambience head to La Terrasse for gorgeous views of the Parliament Buildings, rolling Gatineau Hills and the Ottawa River, delicious meals and sunset cocktails.  Zoe’s bar oozes sophistication and a rich history whilst offering fun and classic cocktails in a chic setting. The rooms and suites are spacious, light and elegantly styled with sophisticated furnishings, they give a very sumptuous setting to relax amid your days exploring Ottawa. 

You will find a warm and friendly service here and wonderful facilities including a nautical-themed, 60-foot Art Deco swimming pool, fitness suite and massage rooms. You can take a 30-minute, self-directed walking tour of the hotel guided by iPads loaned out at the front desk. With its central city location, you are perfectly positioned to head out to nearby sights and attractions, cafes, restaurants and boutique shopping. Visit the vibrant ByWard Market, one of Canada's oldest and largest public markets you'll find museums, cafés, specialty food shops, boutiques, galleries, restaurants, pubs, hair & aesthetics salons and more!
