                8.2

                Our Hotel Check in guy Brian had great ideas for fun on our days and nights out.But we didn't receive any starwood member points on our stay as we booked with Bookings.com which "sucked"

                nothing-great hotel and located in the centre of the action

              • Older travelers
                9.2

                Proximity to the Byward Market

                Having to pay for parking - paying $225 for a room could easily cover the cost of parking.

              • Couple
                9.2

                Nice hotel, very comfortable bed, great location, friendly staff. Only negative is that it was relatively loud, and I could hear people talking in the hallway and elevators beeping all night long.

              • Couple
                8.8

                The view of the room( the parliament of Ottawa)

              • Family with children
                8.2

                Excellent location, very central for sight seeing. Staff were able to give well informed and very helpful advice.

              • Family with children
                10.0

                Accessibility to all major attractions and events. Comfort of room was excellent. Great gym and pool. Loved the paper at my door in the morning.

                Could have been a continental breakfast. At least coffee in the foyer in the morning.

              • Group of friends
                6.6

                The carpet had toe nail clippings and particles of food. The room had dust everywhere. We called guess services and the cleaning lady gave us attitude. The manager did apologize and had the room redone. No wi-FI. At that price you would expect better.

              • Older travelers
                6.6

                nice toiletries, comfy beds and linens

                parking, price

              • Single
                7.8

                The rooms were large with good views and the I like the design and the colors. Everything was very clean and the staff were very friendly.

              • Older travelers
                7.4

                We were supposed to get a king size bed instead we ended up with a double or small queen.

              • Couple
                6.2

                the wifi was terrible. elevators under construction. the only rooms with a bath are the rooms with double beds....

              • Single
                9.2

                Hotel is beautiful and conveniently located adjacent to the Rideau Center.

                I was in Ottawa for an event and the price of the room was drastically inflated due to demand. It only had a queen-sized bed, so I couldn't bring my family along.
