3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The room was very clean and spacious. There were 5 of us (2 adults, 3 Kids 12 to 8) and we had enough room to function and sleep. 2 queen type beds in the bedroom and a fold out couch in the separate living room. The view was lackluster and the parking is a typical Canadian underground garage. Tight but manageable. The free breakfast was excellent and the staff were very pleasant. The location puts you within walking distance of the major attractions (Parliament, Tomb of the unknown, River locks etc) Quite a few restaurants also within walking distance. I would definitely stay here again!

Ideal location downtown, nice accommodations, good breakfast variety. Would stay again and recommend to others visiting Ottawa.

Spent 2 nights at the hotel with our family of 4. Room is very spacious. Breakfast was good. Staff was very helpful with suggestions of things to do and a restaurant. Pool was good. Location was good. Mattress on the double beds were OK, but not great. Mattress on the sleep sofa was pretty thin. The reception area and breakfast is on the 4th floor which is a little bit odd, but not a problem.

Nice, spacious hotel within walking distance to Parliamant and Byward Market shops & restaurants. Good for a family of 5!

Nice and very spacious room, full kitchen, comfortable beds. I was very pleased with the room, its cleanliness and appointments. The hotel staff was nice and very helpful. Sunday morning breakfast was really disorganized, but it was also really crowded so maybe it was just understaffed. Saturday and monday breakfast went smoothly and the food and the service were just fine. Parking is convenient and the location of the hotel is perfect. All in all, a good value.

The room was a great size for our family. The beds were a little hard but not too bad. The Hotel is in a great location to see all the sights. You can walk to Parliment Hill and the Ward Market.

We were 5 minutes from the start of the Marathon and the staff made a lot of concessions for the runners. The 10th floor had been recently recarpeted and the room was spotless. A very enjoyable stay!
