Stayed here for one night while travelling in the area for business. The location is nice as it is in the east end of Ottawa and one doesn't have to go right downtown. Lots of businesses and restaurants in the area. I booked a room with a king sized bed. Extremely large room, bright and clean with a small fridge... More

My parents stayed at this hotel twice over the last six months. On both occasions both they and I found the staff to be super friendly and understanding. This friendliness permeated throughout the place, from check-in staff to housekeeping to the restaurant. They really took the extra steps to make my parents feel welcomed and I felt comfortable leaving them... More

This was my first stay at the Holiday Inn Express in Ottawa. The customer service was outstanding. Mike at the front desk really took care of me. The room was comfortable and clean. My travel companion and I woke up feeling well rested in our comfortable bed. Overall, we only have positive things to say about our stay. I will... More

I always choose this hotel when I'm visiting Ottawa. The staff at the front desk went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable. They were happy to provide me with a toothbrush and tooth paste when I realized I didn't pack my own. The entire hotel was exceptionally clean. Cleaning staff were efficient and thorough in the rooms. Our... More

I stay at this hotel whenever i come to visit family and I love the smell as i walk in through the front door of this hotel (fresh cotton scent), very inviting. It is not in a busy area and parking is free! The ease of finding parking, checking in and checking out is what makes it feel comfortable and... More

Had a business meeting on site with about 15 participants. Facilities seemed to be fine, staff was great. Hotel was cleaner than most chai. Hotels in North America, so kudos to management and staff. Breakfast is ok and kid-friendly, but could be a bit healthier simply by including plain yogurt (please - enough of the artificial crap!) and at least... More

As a business traveller putting on over 100K miles per year, this hotel tops some of the best I've stayed. Dave and Greg (front desk and shuttle driver) know what customer service means! The rooms are immaculate, updated and well appointed. While I could go on and on about the accommodations, even the nicest hotels can go downhill with bad... More

My wife and I stayed at this location in mid February 2014 after moving from another accommodation on the east end of the city. It's a newer facility, it's very clean and the staff are friendly. The rooms are laid out well and the beds are super comfy. The hotel still has that "NEW CAR SMELL"!! You pretty much know... More

Stayed for one night in March 2014 as I had an overnight wait between flights. It's in a great location, just 5 minutes from Ottawa Airport. The Hotel runs a courtesy shuttle as well to get you to and from your flights. For some reason I was upgraded to teh Presedential suite which is enourmous with a break out lounge... More

This very efficient hotel caters almost exclusively to business travelers and those who need an airport hotel (in 3 visits, I've yet to see a child there). The property is new and very well maintained and clean. The staff offer some of the best service I've had at a hotel. For instance, when their Business Centre computers were down, they... More
