Great location, great staff, very clean, all around great stay! I cant say enough about the front desk and bellman staff, all were helpful, happy to assist, and genuinely happy to make my stay great. The room was clean, well equipped, and while they arent cleaning the room daily at this time, if we needed anything we just asked and it was promptly delivered to our room.
Anniversary get away
Just spent the weekend in Ottawa. We stayed at the Lord Elgin. The hotel does have a lot of great qualities. I gave it only a 3, because I wish the room would have been a bit roomier. And the bathroom especially could have been bigger. ( when u go in you have to turn around shut the door and then go about your business) and the parking is pricey. Now those small features aside, the hotels location is wonderful you are only minute walks away from everything. The parliament buildings, byword market, blocks full of Fantastic restaurants, bars and shopping! So much to do just moments out of the lobby. Didn't even need our car. The staff we encountered were all wonderful, very accommodating and friendly!!! The hotel is very clean. 210$ a night though. Cause of the location we would definitely stay here again.
Good value for money!
We came here to celebrate an anniversary. I wanted to be within walking distance to the Parliament and shopping AND I wanted modern bathrooms and found this place had undergone renovations in recent years. I have always wanted to stay here because I thought it looked like Chateau Laurier which I could not afford. I was not disappointed. The lobby reminds me of old world hotels. Our room was a classic room and it was not big. I loved the modern bathroom with a tiled walk-in shower. It had the clean modern look I wanted. My only discontent with the bathroom was that the glass wall should have been at least a foot or two wider so that the water from the shower would not splash out so easily onto the rest of the bathroom floor. I had written in the comment field during reservations that we were coming in for our anniversary and it was lovely to be "upgraded" to a classic room, but overlooking Confederation Park and Elgin Street. There was also a card propped up on the TV to wish us a happy anniversary. Superb personal touch, thank you! The final thing I loved about this hotel was that they had a $5 "green voucher" for anybody choosing to forego daily housekeeping services. I used our voucher at the Starbucks downstairs on our last day. Lastly, parking at the hotel costs A LOT. If you are willing to walk, you can have free overnight parking underground at the City Hall less than two blocks away. I would definitely come back to the Lord Elgin. This was a wonderful first experience.
Disappointed for the cost
Room was okay but very small for $200.00 a night and parking is $35 a night. Front reception was very nice Gym had good equipment and swimming pool was large. Swimming pool area had a lot of areas that had not been cleaned and maintained for quite a while and was quite dirty and unhealthy. Great location Foerm$235.00 a night I would at alternate hotels close by that are more modern and likely have a more spacious room for the price
Best value in Ottawa
The value cannot be beat. The hotel is very nice and the rooms are more than adequate. Service is top notch. The location is awsome. At the begining of Elgin close to all the restaurants and close to the lower town.
