Staff could have been more friendly. Wasn’t what you’d expect when spending so much money staying in a suite. They treated me like I was not even a guest of the hotel. Glaring eyes while we were in the bar, questioned while in the lobby, etc. Maybe for safety purposes, but didn’t appreciate it. Other than that-I loved the property

The Chateau Laurier is absolutely beautiful. We had a gorgeous view of Parliament and downtown Ottawa. Parking is expensive at $60 a day with Valet being your only option but worth every penny in the end. Every ice machine was broken when we were there but room service quickly brought us buckets of ice from the restaurant. The beds were comfortable and room service was extremely friendly and accommodating. We really enjoyed our stay and would visit again.

The property and its history are the reason to stay here. Room was spacious, but we didn’t end up with a view and there weren’t any perks to make this feel like a luxurious stay to match the price. I cannot believe any hotel does not include wifi these days - but this one does not!

Valets for parking are helpful and courteous, but as the valet parking is the only viable option it is expensive and overstressed. No sound proofing of rooms is perfect, but I would say this was extremely poor. The hotel itself is beautiful, but understaffed and getting a bit creaky. Glad I stayed there, but doubt I will go back.
