Christmas In The Chateau

For Christmas Day, I thought I would post shots from within the Chateau Laurier. I went there earlier in the month and took a series of shots inside.

This is one of the main staircases off the lobby. The Christmas trees you see beside it are just a few of many that are in the hotel right now.

Here we have others. Local groups and businesses decorated the trees and benefits went to charity, as it turns out.

Yet more trees. I was surprised by how many there were inside. The screen beyond these trees is translucent; the space beyond is one of the hotel's restaurants.

This tree is in one of the lounges, just off the main lobby. 

While this is one of the halls going deeper into the hotel. Christmas trees are at the far end.

More from the Chateau's interior in the next two posts.


  1. It wouldn't seem like Christmas without decorated trees! Happy Holiday to you and yours!

  2. Yep, those are the kinds of stairs I came down this morning to greet Christmas morn.
    :-) Awesome, William! Merry Christmas!

  3. What a beautiful place and so festive with all those trees. Merry Christmas.

  4. Merry Christmas, William. The trees are beautiful.

  5. Such a grand old hotel and beautiful trees! Merry Christmas, William!!

  6. Now I have to look up this building - quite grand.

  7. What an electronic elegant staircase!

  8. It's a great idea to have trees decorated by local groups and auctioned off for charity.

  9. I love the trees and the lighting of the rooms and spaces. Festival of lights, and heavens know we need it right now!

  10. Photo 3, looks like trees for sale. Greetings.
