I recently stayed at the Lord Elgin for two nights on a business trip. I was thoroughly impressed with the service and professionalism of the staff, and the large and clean room with a view of the park. As the hotel recently celebrated its 75th birthday, I was expecting some "oh, that's charming but they should really fix it" moments,...

Really enjoyed our stay! Had a Park View room at the front of the hotel which proved to be a little noisy at night. Chris on reception was extremely helpful throughout our three night stay. He made the stay particularly memorable. Room was elegant and comfortable and met all our needs. The hotel was ideally situated for visiting all the...

Had a nice stay at the recently renovated Lord Elgin. Great location for sure (have stayed here often). Staff always cheery and helpful. The new decor looks great. But while the bathrooms are nicely redone, there is really no place to hang a towel once you use it! And turning the shower on usually means that you will get a...

We visited Ottawa to do some house hunting due to moving from Toronto. The hotel was recently renovated and decorated with a Art Deco flare. Loved the architecture and feel of the place. Our room was fresh and bright with a clean and stylish bathroom. Service was very welcoming and on point from the doorman, desk and restaurant. We enjoyed...

Great location, the hotel is walking distance to Parliament Hill, Rideau Canel and the Byward Markets. The rooms were clean and comfortable for a family. On the downside the pool was very disappointing, the water was FREEZING when we were there and the hot tub was so small, it only accommodates a few people at a time. People were sitting...

Dear Windsor_26, We appreciate your feedback and are glad that you enjoyed your overall stay. We would like to extend our apologies for the frustrations you dealt with during your stay. Having higher than normal pool traffic lately, fresh water was added which decreased the temperature and unfortunately it hadn’t recovered as quickly as expected. We have just had a...

Very nice hotel at a great location! Staff was excellent and the room was very nice.

Good Location and very pleasant hotel. 5 mins walking distance from Parliament Hill... Very convenient for the Byward Market. Hotel is clean, service is efficient. If I was to give it a downside, the hotel bar closed quite early I believe 11:00p.m. even though it was a Friday/Saturday weekend stay.
