Great location but our room was small and in need of a facelift. The bathroom sink had a large crack and was stained, the carpet was old and needed replacing. It had not been vacuumed and there was a lot of dust. We also found M&M's on the floor. The gym was very small and only one of the two... More

While this hotel has a great location close to Byward Market, the parliament and The Rideau Center, the hotel itself is just average for the price. The sheers in the windows are mismatched, the bathroom layout is a little strange with the dryer right over the toilet, but the LNG bed was super comfortable. Bring your own pillow though!

The hotel was very nice. They had a great breakfast buffet and my room was very clean and the bed comfortable. I really dislike comforters and was pleased that there was a sheet and blanket available in the closet. The Rideau Center was across the street and the Byward Market was within walking distance. I was also able to walk... More

Stayed here recently for 3 nights, and it was just perfect. If you plan on staying in this city for any length of time then look no further. I don't understand those who stay near the airport, unless you just overnight briefly in Ottawa. Taxi into the city costs 35$, so you may as well stay in the city. This... More

It was refreshing to arrive at a Novotel after spending a week in other less attractive hotels. The family room we booked was spacious and it was noticeable that the air conditioning unit was newish and provided a lovely cool feel to the room on what was a muggy night - we very much appreciated this. The bathroom was very... More

Great central location. Clean room and comfy beds. Would definitely return to this downtown hotel!we were in town for our daughter's graduation and were able to walk to the Arts Centre from the hotel. Rideau mall across the street and Byward Market area just a 2 minute walk.

We are returning guests at this hotel, and we have always been super well treated. Check-in and out has been a breeze. Garage is tight but plenty of room, escalator right to the lobby (from the third level in the garage), rooms very quiet. We take either a superior or suite room, enjoying the extra room and the king bed.... More

Cant beat the location- blocks away from the market, the mall, a million restaurants, and the sites by Parliament and the canal. The room was great- clean, comfortable bed, efficient air conditioning, and strong water pressure. The breakfast was fantastic- so many choices! the hotel had a very helpful staff and a very clean, trendy ambiance. Highly recommended!

The hotel was very nice with a great room. Hotel staff was excellent and room was clean and comfortable. The city was booked up that night but my travel company was able to get me in there, wonderful choice. The hotel is near center of town with many things to do,a large shopping center right across the street. We were... More

I visited Ottawa to attend the FIFA Women's World Cup Quarter Final match at TD Place. I stayed at the Novotel Ottawa for 1 night, and the location of this Hotel is PERFECT! It's Right across the street to Rideau Centre, around the corner to Byward Market, and a short walk to Parliament Hill. Check-in was easy, rooms were clean... More
