Ottawa’s Fairmont Chateau Laurier recently completed a major revitalization, adding several new features to firmly ensconce it as the city’s most luxurious haute spot. Located in the heart of the city, the Chateau Laurier celebrated it’s 100th birthday in 1912 and is surrounded by a rich heritage of history, art and culture. We recently visited this grand hotel and enjoyed all the spoils—here’s three reasons to consider the property for your wedding and other wedding-related activities.
A Dream Wedding Venue
Who hasn’t dreamed of getting married in a castle? The Chateau Laurier is a French-style chateau and offers several rooms and packages for your wedding. There are three grand rooms to choose from—the original event space known as the Ballroom, the Adam Room and the Laurier room which has an incredible outdoor terrace boasting views of the Ottawa River, Rideau Canal and the Parliament.

A Beautiful Bachelorette
For a perfect pre-wedding girls day out with your bridal squad, enjoy the elegant afternoon tea service at the newly revitalized Zoe’s lounge bar. The breathtaking space is light and airy and has preserved the space’s original architectural elements—crown mouldings, glittering chandeliers and an incredible marble bar. Afternoon tea with all the trimmings is served daily and is a particular delight. Treat your ladies to a beautiful day out and experience.
A Perfect Mini-Moon
With the recent renovations, the Fairmont Gold level of the hotel now has 69 rooms and suites with service that is second to none! Splash out with a post-wedding stay and enjoy the Fairmont Gold Executive Lounge, where continental breakfast, coffees and teas and a 5-7 service are included in your booking. If you love total pampering and luxury, a stay on Fairmont Gold is your perfect romantic escape!
