Happy Birthday! Fairmont Château Laurier turns 100!
Throughout 2012, Ottawa's Fairmont Château Laurier hotel marks its 100th anniversary. Originally scheduled for an April 1912 opening, the official launch was delayed till June after the hotel's owner, Charles Melville Hays, died in the sinking of the Titanic.
To commemorate the event, the hotel offers monthly culinary journeys through the decades at Wilfrid's restaurant, a memorabilia display and a special centennial tea service!
