Terrible stay, not worth the money. Loud guests in room next door our second night. Complained 3x by phone to Front Desk with no action. Had to go down in middle of night in person before staff would react. Noise lasted until 5am regardless. Hotel would only reluctantly refund half of second night. Expected more at $400/night. Would not stay again and do not recommend.

We loved the ambience of the Chateau Laurier, It is very convenient to many interesting sites in downtown Ottawa. The staff were great. We upgraded to the Gold Level & expected a better room for this. The side lamps on the bedside tables were both in bad shape. The batteries for the TV were totally dead and could not be changed until the next morning.

Disliked: Amenities
Great position to the right of the front door (Parliament/River) but to the left more mixed. Disappointed in Byward Market area. No chest of drawers so it made unpacking more difficult. Still a grand old hotel but door to room needed muscle to open and bathroom door would not close. Shower in bath. Pool - very disappointing - cold , deep poor access and no hot tub. For what we paid there was most likely a superior for less.

Beautiful experience staying at the Chateau. The staff here are exceptional and really enhance the overall experience. It is located in a central location which makes it the perfect home base for all activities while visiting from sightseeing, shopping, and food options. The reality is that this is a historic hotel so you have to be prepared for smaller rooms, sticky doors, small bathrooms. If you have that mindset this place is absolutely perfect.
