Ottawa Luxury Hotel: Fairmont Château Laurier

Fairmont Château Laurier is a luxury hotel located in the heart of Canada's capital, next door to the Parliament Buildings. The historic building, opened in 1912, is a magnificent limestone edifice with turrets and masonry reminiscent of a French château. Just outside is the Rideau Canal, which offers miles of bicycle and inline skating paths and the world's longest skating rink. It has a CAA/AAA Four Diamond Award.

Wilfrid's offers a table d'hôte menu featuring a variety of dishes with new offerings each week. Visit Zoe's Lounge for classic cocktails or the very popular afternoon tea.

There's an indoor art-deco swimming pool, which is something to see even if you don't swim. There are dry saunas and a fitness center with the usual machines. A massage therapist is available for acupressure, neuromuscular massage, sports therapy and Swedish massages.
