Location is truly excellent - many shops and restaurants close by. Service is good too, both at reception, check in and at the bar. Breakfast was fast, cheap and tasty. Lobby and working area were new and nice. The only issue is that the rooms need a refresh! They are not in keeping with the rest of the hotel, and... More

Do no waste your time with this hotel. The information that you are given is false and they do not stand by there word.

This is a regular Courtyard Marriott in the heart of the Byward Market downtown entertainment area of Ottawa. This hotel is a standard US style motel format and has rooms that are small and some that are regular sized, they call suites. Rooms are in need of updating although the ground floor has been updated and has good bar and... More

This Courtyard is located adjacent to the Byward Market and within walking distance to Parliament and many other Ottawa sights. There's a reasonably priced on site small bar/bistro with some basic food. The rooms are clean and comfortable though have some minor cosmetic issues (things like wallpaper in the bathroom slightly curled at the corner, for example); the aircon units... More

We went in the summer in August and the prices were about $150 a night. The location is awesome and within walking distance from all the downtown goodies. We did not need a car and just cabbed it from here to the airport. But I believe parking is extra if you do have a vehicle. Otherwise a standard hotel. Staff... More

If you don't care about sleeping and just want a place to change and shower, this hotel is adequate. If you want to get a nightclub experience without the drinks and without leaving your hotel room, this is the place for you. If you want to sleep - at all - book somewhere else. I was on the top floor... More

My girlfriends and I recently stayed at the Courtyard Marriott in downtown Ottawa for my recent birthday. I tend to stay at the one uptown on Kent because I find hotel a bit nicer and the rooms more comfortable, however we opted this trip to stay downtown because it's location can't be beat. The hotel was nice and the rooms... More
