About your hotel

The Lord Elgin is just a stone’s throw from the UNESCO Rideau Canal, the National Art Centre and Ottawa’s most visited attraction, Parliament Hill. Perhaps you’ll watch the daily Changing of the Guard or one of the awe-inspiring evening Sound and Light Shows – both shows are free.

Ottawa is a treasure trove of impressive sights and stimulating activities, from world-renowned historic places to outdoor adventure and everything in between, the Lord Elgin is perfectly placed to make the most of your stay in Canada’s capital city. Immerse yourself in vibrant festivals, museums, galleries, eclectic dining and a world of shops and boutiques.

The rooms are modern and the high ceilings provide a pleasantly spacious feel, while windows that are easily opened allow gentle breezes in. They provide a solid base from which to explore every inch of Ottawa’s cultural delights.

Keep fit in the gym or with a few lengths of the lap pool or simply relax after a full day of sightseeing with some time in the bubbling hot tub.

The hotel offers a perfectly chic restaurant, but Ottawa’s nightlife is there to be enjoyed to the full – head out into the city to choose a spot for the evening – there’s plenty to choose from right on your doorstep.
