very good location and comfortable bed. I want to say that I always stay green but the fist time got $5 voucher per night if you stay green at Lord Elgin hotel. You could use it at Star-bark or restaurant. So please hang Stay Green card in front your door and protect our Mother Nature.Thank you!

This hotel need updating and upgrading.
Out-dated decor, bad paint job bathroom door. Slight odour. It’s terrible how there is no bathroom vent.
James, ca1 night family trip
Exceptional 10.0
At the heart of the action
The hotel has an old-world elegance and style but in a 21st C way. The restaurant is excellent (the seafood chowder is the best I've ever had -- and my inlaws are East Coasters!); the gym is well equipped and there is a decent size pool for those who like to get up early and do a few laps. It is centrally located, being a short walk to the Byward Market and all main government offices. It is across the street from the Rideau Centre, City Hall (where there is public skating in winter), and the National Arts Centre. U of Ottawa is no more than 10 minutes' walk as is the canal for those who like to walk/run/etc in bucolic settings. The rooms are all updated and the air conditioning quiet (a real bonus in my view). Gold member discounts are available and they have a 'go green' program where you can forego housekeeping for $5 voucher (which I spent at the Starbucks located on the property). Overall -- a great place.
