Tourist and Area Information

Fairmont Chateau Laurier

The Fairmont Chateau Laurier is a great Ottawa landmark in the heart of the city's downtown. Within easy walking distance you will find Parliament Hill, the National Gallery of Canada, the Byward Market district filled with shops and restaurants to suit all budgets. Ottawa's major shopping centre, the Rideau Centre, is a two-minute walk from the Chateau Laurier hotel. The hotel also boasts a relaxing pool and health club.



The Byward Market

A stone's throw from the Fairmont Chateau Laurier, the Byward Market is a sector of downtown that takes its name from the 180-year-old farmers' market at its core. You'll still find fresh fruits and vegetable stands lining the main street. A vibrant, pedestrian-friendly neighbourhood surrounds the market, filled with restaurants, cafes, museum and all manner of stores.


Celebrate Canada Day in Ottawa

On July 1, two days before the Canadian Youth Chess Championship begins, tens of thousands of people celebrate Canada Day in Ottawa in the vicinity of Parliament Hill and the Fairmont Chateau Laurier. The downtown is closed off to cars and the area becomes a day-long street party with family activities, street performances, concerts, picnics and fireworks. Ottawa is the place to be on July 1!
