Ottawa for a weekend
Nice hotel.. unfortunately most amenities and services were not available due to the pandemic but staff did try their best. Check in was fast, didn't use the elevator because it was so slow. Rooms are nice, thermostat didn't work but they did have a heating/ air conditioning unit in the room already. Balcony was a plus. The staff even waived the late check-out fee, which says a lot. Very good location, in Byward market, near tonnes of dining options, 15 minutes to Parliament Hill (maybe less), and about 10 minutes to Major's Hill Park. I'll be back for sure.

Amazing rooms and stay.
It was an amazing stay knowing that with our on going problem in our country, i was able to go on my deck to have a cigaratte with out having to interact with anyone. Also haveing the underground parking was very convenient. In the room it was nice to have dishes and utensils if needed and the products to clean them. The room was very clean and comfortable and suitable for me and my daughter. Although the toillet paper was a little rough, the hotel could use softer toillet paper, my stay was extremely amazing.

Nice place
It was a quaint place that was close to all for walking or short cab ride $10-15. Staff was helpful with suggestions for dining out and directions. Clean and quiet, breakfast was good with nice options. TV is small so...suggestion to owners to invest and upgrade the size of the TV
