Lord Elgin Hotel
Located on Elgin Street, ceremonial route to the Cenotaph & Houses of Parliament, this historic 355 room hotel overlooks the beautiful Confederation Park, home of many Ottawa festivals. Stroll through the Park and you reach the Rideau Canal, all-season hub of activity; the longest skating rink in the world during the winter season & a major transportation route for the many boats from the lakes & rivers it connects. The hotel is mere steps from Ottawa's meeting place, the Shaw Centre. The 11-storey structure, with its Normandy-type copper roof, located opposite the National Arts Centre, home of the performing arts in Ottawa, is a clean-cut, modern adaptation of the French Chateau type. The hotel offers a soothing blend of historic charm & state of the art, modern day conveniences, including free high speed internet, Starbucks Coffee Store, health facility, indoor pool, sauna, whirlpool & 13,000 sq ft of meeting & event space.
