  • Parliament hill is my best experience with respect to places. Great experience. We were returning from Montreal and thought have a in car view of city. We loved it so much that we stayed one more night here. Great experience.
  • Amazing light shows during Christmas. There are construction going on at this point yet it doesn't dull the beauty of the majestic parliament. Can't wait to go in after the renovation.
