The Fairmont Chateau Laurier has maintained an impressive presence next to Parliament Hill since its opening in 1912. Since then, the hotel has housed numerous esteemed guests from Nelson Mandela to the Dalai Lama, and has been designated a national historic site since 1980.

Join history at this iconic Ottawa hotel, which has grown and been updated over the years. Today's guestrooms feature tastefully understated furnishings, comfortable beds, and Le Labo bath amenities. Unwind between meetings or sightseeing in the health club, which has an art deco pool area and fitness center. Massage therapy and other personal wellness services are available for a fee.

The hotel keeps company with iconic institutions and memorials just steps from its front doors. A short walk brings guests to the U.S. Embassy, the National War Memorial, the National Gallery of Canada and the Rideau Canal.
