Horrible place to stay unless someone is paying your way. The fridge was full of expensive food so you couldn't use it. Towels were bleached so many times they ripped. Bed didn't have a fitted sheet on it. The cleaners woke us up at 0930 both days trying to clean. Gym had only five cardio machines and no weights. Our... More

The hotel is very conveniently located in downtown Ottawa. The Market is a block away and most attractions are within walking distance. The rooms were clean but on the small size. One negative is the parking garage which was very tight to park a mid sized SUV. Some spots were too short for the height of my car. If you... More

I booked this hotel after reading some reviews in Tripadvisor. I agree, it has a great location to visit Ottawa, but that's all. Byward Market and Parliament at a walk distance. Rooms are OK. As a Spaniard, I'm used to this kind of hotel. Breakfast was really disappointing...Chaotic! Not enough space! Poor buffet! Rude staff...I'd only stay here again for... More

Good enough. Nothing fancy but simple, european style lobby and room decor. Mattresses could have been better, were slouchy in some areas so person with the bad back did not have great sleeps. Clean enough, and nice cleaning staff, but could definitely use more staff resources to do a deeper cleaning ie dust in the corners of carpet, ledges on... More

Second visit to this hotel and still can't fault it. Fantastic location near the market with all of its shops and restaurants and five minutes from the Parliament Building. Great beds, big rooms and lovely toiletries. And, as an added bonus, the wifi actually works too!

Since we're in the middle of moving, we stayed in the Novotel between locations and have enjoyed the stay. It's right in the heart of downtown with the Byward Market and Parliament close by which is great for tourists and those here on business. The room we had was small, but the washroom was very spacious. The staff were friendly... More

Stayed here for 2 nights in July (although apparently check out the Ottawa 3rd night free offer). Anyway great location as just next to Byward Market and close to shopping centre plus not more than 10 mins walk from parliament and other attractions. Hotel has that new funky vibe and rooms are nice, much better than courtyard that is in... More

We stayed at the Novotel in May for the Scotiabank Marathon. The venue was very close to the market, shopping centers and the start/finish line. It was also very close (walking distance) to Parliament Hill and other attractions. The rooms were nice and very clean. Staff was very friendly, answering all questions and helping us decide which attractions to see.... More

Pros: Location was great. A short stroll from Parliament Hill and ByWard Market. It was a good sized room at a good nightly rate and I would certainly be happy to stay here again. Cons: Room was somewhat dusty, particularly around the desk area. Parking was quite expensive at $23 per day...we were not moving the car for the duration... More
