13618050_582499122855_564487381_nI’m a little bit obsessed with hotels. One hotel brand will always hold a special place in my heart, and that would be Fairmont Hotels. Known for their unique properties and exceptional service, a stay at a Fairmont hotel is always a good experience. When I went to Ottawa, Expedia.ca helped me out so that I could stay at the Fairmont Château Laurier.

This opulent hotel is located in downtown Ottawa within walking distance of the ByWard Market and right beside Parliament. The hotel opened in 1912, and has several ballrooms, shops and restaurants within. It’s a huge limestone building with turrets that make it look like a castle.

My room was well appointed with a queen sized bed (that was really comfy) and a small sitting area. The hotel greeted us with a selection of welcome pastries, which we really enjoyed. The room also had bathrobes and a Keurig coffee maker. We had a great view that looked out over onto Parliament.

On Sundays, the hotel offers a decedent brunch in their Wilfred’s Restaurant. On the lunch side of things, stuffed ravioli, quiche, roast beef wellington, fresh salads and more could be found. There’s also a selection of local cheese, cold pastas and salads, and fresh fruit.

For breakfast, there’s a tower of fresh baked croissants, muffins, danishes and breads. My favorite part is the custom omelet station with your choice of cheese, ham, fresh veggies or all of the above. Of course, the selection also includes breakfast staples like breakfast potatoes, sausage and perfectly crisp bacon.

The brunch had a fantastic dessert selection that seemed to hold endless desserts. There was a chocolate fountain, praline mousse towers, crème brûlée, cookies, pecan pie, opera cakes and more. It was the best dessert selection that I’ve ever seen at a brunch.
All in all, we had a wonderful stay at the Fairmont Château Laurier. Interested in going to Ottawa? Check out what I did during my visit or explore Ottawa on Expedia.ca.
