From February 1st to 18th, Ottawa plays host to the best Winter festival ever – a Canadian Signature Experience called Winterlude.

Stay at the newly renovated Lord Elgin Hotel, where you are at the heart of the best Winter activities including Winterlude, our famous Winter Festival.   Overlooking Confederation Park, home to the Winterlude’s Crystal Garden (International Ice Carving Competition), you could not find a better vantage point.  The Rideau Canal, now in the Guinness Book of Records as the Longest Skating Rink in the World,  is located only one block from the hotel.

We have a Winter Getaway Package that is the ideal combination for your visit to this amazing festival.  With skate rentals, free parking and breakfast and just a short walk to the canal, it doesn’t get better.  BOOK IT NOW!
