Lord Elgin Hotel, Ottawa, Canada
The gentleman who was working valet in the evening was very helpful and was always friendly and welcoming when ever we came back.

Great location in Downtown Ottawa
Check in was fast and easy, we went straight to our room which was at the back of the hotel but we didn't really care as we wouldn't be sitting looking out the window much. We used the pool/hot tub twice and it was OK, a sauna would have been an added bonus to the facilities. The Grill41 restaurant was good, but really why stay and eat at the hotel when there are so many great restaurants around it? We walked pretty much everywhere and got great directions from the Valet attendants, even scored a few bottles of water for the drive home! Overall a very nice hotel in a 'can't-be-beat' location, plus friendly staff. The only issue we had was that the shower head was a rainfall type one and didnt have great pressure. Sure its a water saving feature, but it also took twice as long to get clean (so it is really saving money?) Oh, and the mini fridge in our room was way too cold...froze all of our stuff we brought with us and I couldnt find a way to turn it to a lower level. We would stat here again for sure.

Lord Elgin Hotel
The stay was very good. I was disappointed that there was only very slow almost non existent WiFi for guests. As I use this to research places to eat and shop, this hampered our planning. High speed was available , but was pricey. The hotel was very clean and service was friendly. Location was excellent.

Fine Print
The hotel is clean and is located conveniently near parliament as well as many pubs and restaurants. We had a double queen room, it was average in size, very clean. I missed the fine print that cost me an extra $30 per day for valet parking which kind of left a sour taste in my mouth.

Could do better outside the rooms...
Good in general. However we found it odd people at reception and restaurant were not bilingual (this is the capital of Canada!!!). Also restaurant Easter buffet was below expectations for the price. Restaurant in general is below average for this type of hotel.
