As one of Canada’s most recognizable landmarks, Fairmont Château Laurier offers an experience few can rival. Stationed in the center of downtown Ottawa, this recently renovated hotel was built to resemble a Renaissance-era French château. Though located in Canada, the mastermind behind the hotel’s inception was an American named Charles Melville Hays. Unfortunately, Hays perished in the sinking of the Titanic just weeks before his dream hotel opened in June 1912. Explore the rich community where the Fairmont Château Laurier calls home. Ottawa has various festivals, enlightening city tours, exciting winter sports, and a world-renowned orchestra. Located in the center of downtown Ottawa, Fairmont Château Laurier is just minutes away from exciting attractions and activities. Guests can explore the best that Ottawa has to offer, from the historic Rideau Canal that cuts through the city to museums such as the Canadian Museum of History and the National Gallery. As the capital of Canada, Ottawa is also an excellent location for business meetings and professional conferences, as well as romantic weddings and getaways.
