Will the 97 bus get me to the Chateau Laurier from the Ottawa airport?
No, not right there, but pretty close. It will get you to the Rideau Centre, a large mall, which you can walk all the way through. That will bring you out onto Rideau Street at the intersection of Colonel By Drive. Then it's a short walk to the Chateau. This will be fine if you're not hauling a lot of luggage and you don't mind a ten-minute or so walk.
Thransitquebec, I did consider suggesting The Albert and Metcalfe stop, the one after the Rideau Centre. From that stop, however, the walk to the Chateau would be mostly uphill, and on a sidewalk with ups and downs. The route through the Rideau Centre is on a level mall floor (granted with a staircase to go down to get to the Rideau St exit from the mall). And if the weather is not fine, most of the walk would be indoors.
But the main message is yes, the #97 will get the OP pretty close to the Chateau.
