I would like to personally thank the wonderful staff at the Chimo Hotel. During an unfortunate incident 100% outside of the Hotel's control in January 2015, all guests were evacuated from the premises as a safety precaution. The hotel's staff handled the situation with outstanding professionalism and facilitated the relocation and transportation of our large group (40 persons) to another... More

This will be a very short review since we were in this hotel for less than 2 hours. Due to changes in our plans, we decided to spend an extra night in Ottawa rather than drive through the night. I thought I found a decent deal on Priceline for 1 night for a 3 star hotel which is the rating... More

Room was booked on-line. On arrival at hotel, I was greeted by courteous staff. My room was clean and all necessary items were present in the washroom. The St Laurent Mall is located 5 minutes walk from the hotel. I was able to use the transit system because it is close by. There was a complimentary breakfast included with the... More

NOT handicap accessible. Old slippery grab bars, restricted movement. Wall-mounted HVAC controls don't work. Stains all over carpets, furniture and bedding. Breakfast buffet foods NOT kept at proper holding temps could cause issues. Was once a good hotel, not any longer.

MISERABLE front desk staff - not necessarily towards guests, but to each other. I was able to watch a woman at the front desk be VERY crusty at another staff member in front of myself and another guest trying to check in. I travel a lot for business and have seen my fair share of hotels, but I have NEVER... More

The hotel was very clean, The Pool area was dated but kept clean, The St. Laraunt Mall was just accross the street. The Staff were very friendly and helpful. The Chimo had a very good complimentary breakfast. The bed was soooo comfortable. I would highly recommend this place to anyone.

When I plan a weekend in Ottawa, I stay at the Chimo. One, it is very easy to get to off the highway. Two, it is right beside one of my favourite restaurant chains - The Lone Star. This one not only has great food but live entertainment upstairs. Three, it is across the street from the St. Laurier Mall.... More

I was in Ottawa for a 4 night stay on Business, the Chimo hotel was recommended by the company I was servicing. No fault of there's because they had never stayed but the location was convenient. The Chimo seems to cater to alcoholic partiers with hoards of misbehaving children. The hotel is noisy at all hours of the night, drunks... More

Dear " frequenttraveller315" Thank you for the comments. We were quite disheartened to read them. While the team is here to help you, it is difficult to do so if we are not notified that there is a problem. As for our complimentary breakfast program, we can only say that we rank equal or better compared to major brands making... More
