We were so delighted to stay here on our last night in Ottawa, after our Canada Day family vacation. Our room was clean and comfortable. No deficiencies whatsoever in air conditioning, fridge, or bathroom facility. The breakfast was hearty (and included in the room price) and offered a great assortment of hot & cold foods. The pool area was well-kept... More

We had an excellent experience at this hotel - we called direct to the hotel to obtain a reservation and got a rated that was $20 less than what central reservation offered and what booking online offered. All the staff was efficient and friendly and the room was clean, comfortable and quiet. The breakfast was amazing - many options to... More

Stayed at this hotel many times for both business and pleasure trips since it opened last decade. For the first 5 years, I would've given it a "4". Most recent stay 2 weeks ago made up my mind not to stay here until hotel replaces its A/C heating units (sounds like a parked truck) and its mattresses (too soft with... More

Stayed here recently for a relative's wedding and had a great experience. Room clean and bright with everything functioning. Facilities were all bright and clean. Decent continental breakfast included each morning in the lobby. Staff were pleasant and no issues checking in or out. Great location if overnighting at airport or a family function such as ours but not for... More

Recently we had to travel to Ottawa for a soccer game, only my daughter and I, plus many of her team. Rooms were spacious, clean. Good breakfast in the AM. did not use the pool, it looked nice. There was a nice patio we could gather at in the evening. No beverage service. If you have a soccer or hockey... More

We often use airport hotels before an early morning flight. Overall, this is a great hotel, very close to the airport and right next door to the Park & Fly. The hotel does offer shuttle service but the running hours did not fit our schedule so we could not take advantage of the room/parking deal. With this in consideration, we... More

Our family booked four rooms for a Convocation event, and all we clean and acceptable. Good location and easy access to city center. Pool had just been renovated, and gym was in very good shape. Breakfast was fine. Good service from staff.

This hotel has never stopped striving for excellence since it opened 3 years ago. Most new hotels slide downhill a bit after their opening, but this property is still in "mint" condition and continues to find better ways to serve its guests. For example, their excellent complimentary hot (and cold) breakfast now includes regular, fat-free, and the oh-so-trendy Greek yogurt.... More

I normally stay downtown when in Ottawa, but thought I'd try this place as it's pretty new and was about 1/2 between downtown and where I needed to be for work. The hotel was great. Very clean, great staff, huge room. The breakfast was ok, not as good as some other Holiday Inn Expresses I've stayed at, but you can... More
