This was our first time staying at the Lord Elgin since it has been undergoing renovations. We stayed for 1 night. I found our room to be one of the nicest that we have stayed in in awhile. It was not large but definitely roomy enough for 2 and well designed and with an efficient layout. Very impressed with the...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

Had to make a last minute hotel reservation, so chose Lord Elgin. I have been to Ottawa before, but had yet to stay at the Lord Elgin and was very pleasantly surprised by what a great hotel this was! While they are currently renovating the rooms, there was no impact on my comfort while staying there. The room was large...

Beautiful older building. The rooms are small but well appointed, clean and comfortable. Centrally located within walking distance of major attractions, restaurants and shopping. Would definitely stay again. Hotel restaurant food was very good, but a little pricey.

This hotel is in a great spot. The Hotel is walking distance to the Parliament building, the War memorial, Rideau shopping centre and the market. Staff is very good and the rooms are very spacious and clean.

We stayed at the Lord Elgin overnight on December 3. It was my wife's office Christmas party and we traveled from Timmins to see a Senator's game at the Canadian Tire Centre. We had a block of rooms and the service was over and above. I needed an accessible room with a bathtub. With the ongoing renovations mod rooms have...

I have enjoyed the Lord Elgin for years. This time was extra nice as I was in a newly renovated room. The bathroom is gorgeous! The location of the Lord Elgin is fantastic. The service is excellent. It doesn't get much better than this.

From the time you pull into the front of the hotel, you feel pampered and relaxed. The staff is calm, efficient and friendly. The location is perfect, whether you're visiting the National Gallery or Byward Market. The rooms are wonderful; spacious, clean, the comfiest beds and pillows and sheets, a newly designed bathroom...I can't say enough.

My First visit to Ottawa. This hotel is in a great location for walking around downtown Ottawa and Parliament Hill. Very close to war memorial, Parks Canada locks on the Rideau Canal, and Confederation Park. A short walk to shopping center. We were on the 3rd floor so there was a little noise from the traffic below.

I have been staying here for about ten years; it's always been lovely but the recent room upgrades make it fantastic. Plus the service - you feel like they actually like you instead of just being a customer

I stayed at Hotel for six nights, and found it very comfortable and quiet. The staff very courteous and helpful. The location is also convenient to many areas in Ottawa. The room has a an office chair and a lounging chair, but could use a comfy sitting chair.
