Ottawa - Canada

190 kilometers west of Montreal, Ottawa is the capital of Canada and its 4th largest city. It is located in the eastern portion of the province of Ontario, bordering the province of Quebec, on the banks of the Ottawa River, a major waterway that forms the border between Ontario and Quebec.

On the left side of the image there's Château Laurier and on the right, the Parliament of Canada. 
The hotel is just metres away from some of the capital's most important landmarks including Parliament Hill, the Rideau Canal, the National Gallery of Canada, the Byward Market, the National War Memorial, the U.S. Embassy, and the CF Rideau Centre. Given its proximity to these buildings and the fact that it has served as a home and meeting place for many notable political figures over the years, the hotel has often been referred to as "the third chamber of Parliament". - in: wikipedia
