a location for all people

at first, the French food is really so great and delicious. the price is very reasonable and the quality of service is fairly high. additionally, its location in the centre of Ottawa is very convenient for any travel to other places. A very memorable experience!

Stayed for a short night after watching the Nutcracker Show just across the street at the Centre National des Arts. Located right downtown, I loved the short walk to the theater and loved the warmth and the soul of this hotel! Enjoyed the delicious meal at the hotel we had for dinner.

sleepless in Ottawa
December 05, 2014

With 75% occupancy, on the second night an unsupervised group of young hockey players were booked into room adjacent to two seniors. 2 calls to the front desk between 1am and 2.15 were necessary due to kicks to the door, shouting and profanity. In effect, a night's sleep was lost through insensitive, unprofessional booking practices. Free breakfasts and a small discount cannot make up for one... more

We often stay at the hotel when getting together with friends for a night out. It's close to the Market and it's right on Elgin. Walking distance to restaurants and bars. The Starbucks in the lobby is a great early morning start too.

Toilet seat was broken so that was a very uncomfortable, the heat was on full which made it too hot in the room and we could not get it to regulate but other than that stay was great. Staff was great, they go out of their way to make sure you are comfortable.

Historic hotel close to major facilities in Ottawa

I took a little adventure at YOW. Instead of taking taxi to the hotel, which would typically cost around CAD$35, I tried OCTranspo (public bus, #97) both ways to/from the hotel. Costs are $3.10/to and $3.45/from, in dedicated bus lanes meaning fast even during rush hours. The bus stopped about 1.5 blocks away but not hard to carry luggage around.

I liked that the hotel had city maps to give out. The rooms were clean and very nicely decorated. I liked the hotel very much but I was not impressed with Ottawa. The Parliament Bldgs desperately need to be cleaned, as does the horribly dirty building opposite in which the PM works. (I'd be embarassed to have to say I workd there if I were the PM.)

Undeniably the most gracious, attentive, helpful, and lovely staff. While facilities and decor may not be as new or flashy as other hotels in the neighbourhood, the Lord Elgin's old world charm gives it a relaxed, but chic atmosphere. Enjoy fine dining at Grill 41. Breakfast in bed is generous.
