    Try the high tea at Zoe's lounge. Enjoy the pianist and take a breather. A bit pricey (as is most things in the hotel) but it's an experience worth taking away if you are visiting in town.

    Scenic view on the outdoor patio, with unbelievable Martini's, cocktails (honeydew melon for example) gluten free chocolate cake and the staff is incredible. Best view to watch the sun go down.

    Skip the breakfast buffet at $26 per person and order breakfast a la carte. A no brainer, but I saw a goof grab a coffee and croissant from the buffet. $26 for a coffee and croissant? Dork.

    PARKING: The parking lot closes at 2am and they lift the gate. This is a great place to park if ur in the market late nights. Free parking after 2am.

    High Tea im Chateau Laurier ist ein Muss! Wir haben Canadian Tea gewählt und waren begeistert. Als Tee habe ich Ice Wine Tee probiert, der intensiv nach Eiswein schmeckte.
