Lord Elgin Hotel

In an unbeatable location, the Lord Elgin Hotel is your ideal accommodation choice in downtown Ottawa at any time of year, but particularly during the summer months.  With the ceremonial guard marching by our door each morning, you cannot find a better landmark to stay in.  Within steps to all major attractions and museums and with hundreds of shops and restaurants nearby, there is no better place to stay.

Our on-site Starbucks and incredible cuisine at Grill 41 complete your foodie experience as well.   To burn it off, the Rideau Canal offers the most scenic running and cycling route, just one block from our front door AND we store your bike for free.  It doesn’t get better than that!!!
