Fairmont Chateau Laurier is located right downtown by a very nice park right the locks. Everything is conveniently located in the area, including Rideau Centre. At 2 pm, I had a very nice High-Tea time featuring a 3-tier sandwiches and dessert tray. Enjoyed my stay at the Fairmont Laurier Hotel.

Liked: Cleanliness
I loved the old charm of the place, high ceilings and views. I didn’t like that I paid for parking and the spots were limited. I wasted time hanging in the parking lot waiting for a spot and I tried to go to the gym and the staff had to call me back to reserve and that never happened.
