Lord Elgin Hotel

Lord Elgin Hotel

Follow Lord Elgin Hotel

This historic hotel on Elgin Street—just steps from the National Arts Centre, the Rideau Canal and Parliament Hill—puts you in the middle of many of downtown Ottawa's most popular events.

Stroll across the street from the Lord Elgin Hotel to enjoy marquee events, such as the TD Ottawa Jazz Festival in Confederation Park, or food and culture celebrations at Ottawa City Hall's Festival Plaza. On summer mornings, you can even watch the Ceremonial Guard parade past the hotel, on its way from the nearby Cartier Square Drill Hall to Parliament Hill for the Changing of the Guard ceremony. And year round, you can check out a wide variety of shops and restaurants along vibrant Elgin Street.

Built in 1941, the hotel is a modern adaptation of the French Chateau architectural style. The updated Art Deco-style rooms feature nickel accents, Biedermeier-style furnishings, Keurig coffee makers, HD televisions, marble bathrooms and tall picture windows. Conveniences include free wi-fi, the sleek Grill 41 restaurant and its well-stocked wine cellar, an onsite Starbucks coffee shop, a business centre, valet parking and dry cleaning, and an indoor pool, sauna and whirlpool.
