A Traveler, ca1 night trip
Residence Inn by Marriott Ottawa Downtown, Ottawa
Our family enjoyed the stay and I don’t have any negative comments except that the mattress (which was very comfortable) was so thick that the sheet could not be tucked underneath. Untucked sheets annoy me and it kept me wrestling to keep it in place during the night. Other than that, all was good - the staff was pleasant, the breakfast was good and the room was comfortable!

Thanksgiving in Ottawa
We were visiting our daughter who goes to uOttawa so it was nice and close to her and downtown attractions. I liked having the kitchen and the separate living room and bedroom. It was clean although parts of it were dated and showing wear. The breakfast was good, super busy though but they warned of that being a holiday weekend and opened a second seating area on the holiday Monday. The parking in my opinion of $23.00 a night is costly. The parking garage was also very tight and hard to navigate in our SUV but we did it. Liked having the Tim Hortons immediately attached to the hotel with a door so didn't even have to go outside. The pool was so-so as little small for the size of hotel so crowded and not enough seating around the outside and the hot tub was closed. I did however like that I could go on the treadmill and see out windows that overlook the pool to keep an eye on my teenagers swimming.
