The stately and historic Lord Elgin is a landmark downtown Ottawa hotel where nearby Confederation Park and the National Arts Centre convene with the hotel's classic comfort for an elegant, comprehensive Ottawa retreat. The posh building stands proud and in close proximity to Ottawa's best attractions including Byward Market, Parliament Hill, and the world-famous Rideau Canal.
The hotel's entire decor evokes a sense of grace and style, from its tulip-inspired artwork and tall picture windows to the building's ornate facade. Guestrooms persist with this same standard of luxury down to the very last detail, featuring crisp linens outlined with bold, colourful bedding, beautiful views of Confederation Park, and granite topped counters in the spacious, relaxing guest bathrooms. All rooms also have a 42-inch flat screen TV, wireless Internet, freshly-brewed coffee and a complementary Globe and Mail newspaper (available Monday to Saturday).
Quick invigoration is available to all Lord Elgin guests with an Italian style espresso from the Starbucks located on site. The hotel is also welcoming Ottawa's next great restaurant, Grill 41, where warm ambiance meets a locally sourced menu and a pleasing range of wines. Chef Brian Vallipuram, in collaboration with celebrity chef Michael Smith, has crafted an inspired menu full of favourites like foie gras and rack of lamb - best enjoyed while overlooking nearby Elgin Street.
From Lord Elgin guests can embark on a romantic stroll down the Rideau Canal, explore exhibits at the Canadian Museum of Civilization, or peruse Byward Market, one of Canada's oldest and largest public markets. Parliament Hill is a short walk from the hotel, as is Gatineau Park, and should you choose to tackle one of the many hiking trails there, the hotel offers an expansive lap pool with adjoining whirlpool to relax after your day spent exploring Canada's historic capital.
