          Individual guest reviews

          • Older travelers

            Very good location. Most major sightseeing attractions are in walking distance to this hotel. Shopping Centre very close by. Good underground parking facility, although not owned by the hotel, however has direct access to the hotel.

            • Average rating
          • Older travelers

            Very comfortable room, good bathroom facilities.Hotel is within striding distance of the Market, shops, transport etc. No need to have a car to visit any sights. Hotel could do better by displaying tourist info. in the Lobby, we had to ask for everything. In the room itself not much info. is provided for a visit.

            Were not impressed by the restaurant, could do much better there at a lower price. Breakfast Buffet was expensive and nothing special. Evening meal was also quite expensive and arrived at the table luke-warm, looked as if it had been sitting round for a while and warmed up, not successfully. We ate out after that experience, there is plenty of choice in the area.

          • Group of friends

            Location was key. I would come back to Ottawa and stay at this hotel because of the staff, and the central location. Very close to the mall and Parliament.

            The Wi-Fi connection was spotty at times, and the view from the hotel was not the best. Rooms were a tad small.

            the room is small, and the facilities of the hotel look aged.

            They put us in Room 205 which at one time must have been a smoking room as the smell of smoke was in the rug and in the room.

          • Family with children

            The room was very old and worn - it faced onto three other building sides - I've stayed at this same hotel in the past and was thrilled with the room and the service. Not this time. Staff who greeted us was not helpful and obviously decided to stick us in one of the "old" rooms despite a two week lead time for my reservation. I won't be staying there again!!!!

          • Older travelers

            We enjoyed the hotel because it was centrally located for all the activities we had planned to do. I was disappointed to find out that the parking was not included in the price of the room.

          • Older travelers

            The room was very modern, very clean and comfortable

            The shower got the floor very wet and elevator key did not seem to work on all the elevators

            computer access. comfort of the bed. access to shopping and public transit system. Close to By-Ward Market (trendy district).

            It was coincidence but the pool and spa area was closed for annual maintenance during my stay. I wish they would post pool-closure dates so that people for whom the pool/spa is important could choose somewhere else to stay. Also, when I arrived they did not have my hotel booking through this service. They honoured the on-line rate for the first night but I was charged a higher rate for the second night. Fortunately, they did have a room for me.

            Silent and properly working air conditioner.

            The door of the shower partition has a slit between the floor, and water spills out too much. I believe that fixing this will make the customer experience excellent.

          • Family with children

            It was very convenient to walk around downtown Ottawa.

            It was quite a small room . There was no microwave or fridge which meant that we have no way of keeping our own drinks cold or of making anything to snack on. The fridge was "wired" so that when we thought we could remove the bar stuff there was a charge just for touching it!!!!

            • Average rating
          • Couple

            Excellent location, parking worked well with direct access to hotel.

            The fact that water bottles would be charged immediately. For the price/night I would at least expect one or two (small) bottles a day for free. Too many children and families hanging out in the lobby.
