Front desk staff was helpful. Room was clean and breakfast was good. Will stay again. Wifi worked well. Located close to freeway and mall. Resturant next door was really good. Kids will enjoy the pool.

Special thanks goes out to GM and his team for going above and beyond and capturing and executing every detail of the celebration- food is amazing and rooms spotless- hidden gem, great location right off the Queensway. Free parking... More

The staff were incredible- clearly an indication of great leadership. Special thank you to GM- Mr. Bengeman, Franca and Mary in banquets and head chef and Sandira in... More

It has been a year since our last visit to the Chimo Hotel. This visit was again for a medical appointment. Years ago the Chimo Hotel was a location we stayed at often when visiting Ottawa and we always saw it as an upscale hotel. It was always affordable but I think because it was newer, it always looked very... More

This hotel has a pool which we did not use. There is a large reception area and numerous large conference rooms. It is situated across from the St. Laurent Mall and with restaurants nearby. The elevator is in need of some attention to upkeep. I am not usually critical of these details but in a large hotel as this I... More

I get to Ottawa on business every six weeks and have stayed at the Chimo before. The location is convenient. However, the hotel seems to get worse each time. It is definitely in need of a renovation. My room was very old and the carpet was disgusting. Counting the carpet stains became a running joke as to how I spent... More

Where to start? We were supposed to stay here for 3 days for a hockey tournament. Thank goodness we changed our reservations after reading all the reviews on line. We stayed here for one night and could not wait to leave. The hotel is old, rooms are dirty, sheets are at least 10 years old. The swimming pool is dirty.... More

The lobby area is clean and staff were nice but the room was paid for by direct billing and they required a personal CC did not charge anything to my room yet somehow there was a $20/night charge that appeared. As for the rest of the hotel: bed sheets had hairs in them, carpet was dirty, wallpaper was peeling off... More

My room was nice and clean, but the Internet access on the 8th floor is nearly unusable. The television remote had to be coaxed into working, almost as if the battery was loose. I could not check because the cover was screwed on.
