This is not my first experience with Fairmont Hotels and with all the respect that i have for this chane, i have to say that it was not what i was expecting from a chain like this.
I stayed at this resort the first week of november/11 , my stay in general was fine, The place looks nice from outside (its all a Castle/Chateau) as its names describe it. Very well located with magnificent views.
I found the Lobby small compare to other Fairmonts which can get a little bit tight during the check in and check out process. Rooms are very spacious , clean as usual but, the one that i was assigned is close by the meeting rooms on an upper floor. haven said that , apparently they were holding that saturday night a wedding party or a kind of even that Disco music was very loud after 10pm disturbing my stay. it did not last the whole night ,but the music bass was strong. Also the sink was clogged and of course you never expect that at a Hotel of this caliber. I didn't focused on those things since i was willing to optimize my stay no matter what and i did not want to make a case of these things.
Resuming, very centrally located, withing walking distance from the Parliament Hill (just 5 min), about 8 minutes walk from the Alexandra bridge , shopping center just across the street, local marked place , clubs, pubs , etc. It is a good place to stay when visiting Ottawa for your first time.
Hope this review helps you out to make up your mind.
