The room they gave me for $350.00 per night was the quality of room you would receive at a 1 star hotel. Mattress was cheap and uncomfortable. Room was small and dark with no easy access to a light switch. Like a cheap bed in an oversized closet. Shame on you for charging these

Are you dog friendly? Thanks
The Lord Elgin Hotel used to be a pet friendly hotel, however after our 2016 renovations were completed that is no longer the case. We of course will still accommodate guests travelling with their services animals.

How far is winterlude festival from the hotel ?
The Winterlude festival takes place at several locations, both at Jacques Cartier Park (across the river) and the Confederation Park (right in front of the hotel). There is a shuttle bus that goes across the bridge to ferry people to/from either site.

"This hotel is a 3 dressed up as a 9."
"The higher the better for both noise and view"
"Rooms overlooking the park and canal are delightful."
"Rooms on the North East side have the best view. Rooms with king size bed are larger."
"Ask for a free upgrade to a view of the park or pay the extra $10 per night, it is well worth it."
