Next Stop: @fairmontlaurier
in Ottawa! The Fairmont Château Laurier was opened by its namesake, Sir Wilfrid Laurier, on June 12, 1912.
At that time, Ottawa was not the refined town it is today as it reflected its rough Bytown origins. Fairmont Château Laurier changed that and was once dubbed 'the third chamber of Parliament' in reference to the number of politicians roaming the corridors of this hotel near Parliament Hill. In its rooms, political deals were made, careers launched or destroyed and governments created and dissolved.
The star-studded guestlist at Fairmont Château Laurier includes Shirley Temple, Nelson Eddy, Greer Garson, Harry Belafonte, Marlene Deitrich, Rich Little, Billy Bishop, Karen Kain, Roger Moore, Bryan Adams, Nelson Mandela, Carrie Fisher and almost every star of stage, screen or music that has performed in Ottawa. 📸 @ottawatourism
