Fabulous 8.8 From 2,343 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
So generous
It was great staying at this hotel. The hotel receptionist offered an executive room type instead of my booking for a studio type room with the same (less) price.

Good stay in ottawa
Very nice room and spacious. Only issue is the parking area and having to walk by the stinky dumpsters. Not a good first impression but other then that it was very nice.

Good 6.0
Was okay
The hotel had everything we needed. The hotel itself was confusing to get around and elevators super tight and could barely fit 2 ppl and our luggage on trolley. The view wasn't good at all. Was run down across the road and has a bar patio there and other buildings. Had to keep curtains closes or was watched as they tend to look up to the light. Bed was comfy. Didn't care for the shower at all. The man at desk was nice and let us stay parking there until 4 so we could have time to walk around the city as we didn't get to do much by time we got there day before. Was very disappointed when we went down to play pool just a bit after 12am and they wouldn't let us play as you need a minimum of an hour, which we offered to pay for that..but still wouldn't let us play until 1. Then sent us on a wild goose chase trying to find this place he told us about that was open until 2. Overall it was ok place to sleep but for the price I would have picked a better spot.

Very large room considering the price which included a small kitchenette and living area. In a very good location - about 15-20 minute walk to parliament hill and market area; many restaurants and pubs in local area. The WIFI is pretty bad but that wasn't a huge deal for us. The breakfast was also nice and included breakfast sandwiches which was a nice surprise.
