Fairmont Château Laurier

Our room, from the collection of mud huts which Ottawans mistake for a five-star hotel.

I kid—it’s actually a very nice hotel with supremely competent staff and decent food.  As Ferris Bueller would say, if you have the means, I highly recommend it.

The only flaw is the bathroom.  Why the designer felt the need to put the towel racks on the other side of the room from the his-and-hers sinks is beyond me.  Pure ergonomic stupidity.  And the shower stall with glass door does not seal (has about a half-inch gap around all edges), so you are going to get water all over the floor, no matter how careful you are.

But beyond that minor quibble, I’ve got nothing but good things to say about the Château Laurier’s facilities or staff.
