I enjoy staying here. It's an awesome location and the front desk staff are so helpful and nice, even you're sick and having a bad day. Very comfortable beds. The only bad thing about this place is there is no room with a view. If you want a view, stay at the Marriot on Kent street (another very good hotel).... More

This hotel is a great place to stay. Very friendly staff who care about your needs. Fantastic location beside the famous Byward Market. Great for walking downtown. Near so many attractions and buildings such as Parliament Hill and some museums. Great restaurants and bars all within walking distance. Rooms in hotel are very comfortable and clean.

We stayed at the Courtyard by Marriott Ottawa Downtown in January 2015, but have been to this hotel numerous times. The hotel is located in the heart of the Byward Market; one of the oldest and largest farmers’ markets in Canada. It's a short walk to the Rideau Canal, Parliament Hill, many good restaurants, bistros, coffee shops, clubs, activities and... More

We stayed in this hotel while visiting Ottawa for 2 nights. The hotel has a great location in Byward market, so good restaurants and entertainment are very close by. This of course results in the hotel being somewhat noisier, so it's not an ideal choice for light sleepers. That said, the room was clean and was a great deal given... More

I was in Ottawa to see a play at the National Arts Centre, and needed a reasonably priced hotel downtown. That Marriott completely fit the bill. It's in a great location (practically right in the middle of the Byward Market, which is fantastic, close to the NAC and the Chateau Laurier and Parliament Hill. This is, when push comes to... More

The Courtyard Marriott in Downtown Ottawa was an average hotel, but the location was phenomenal. In the heart of the market, we felt like we were in the middle of the all of the action. We were just a few minutes walk away from the Rideau Centre, as well as many delicious restaurants and little boutique shops. The hotel itself... More

I stayed in the hotel a couple of days and I really enjoyed my time! First of all, the rooms are spacious, very comfortable and clean. The lobby is as great.
