Great location for a hotel, within walking distance to many restaurants, and the sight-seeing places on Parliament. The living room was very spacious with giant meeting table, two couches. This would be a great place to stay for a group of people. They also offered many amenities free of charge, including extra bed, nespresso machine, steam iron plus upright garment... More

Fairly priced and a good location. Breakfast was good...but nothing really special. Rooms are large and fairly comfortable. They could, however, use decent drapes and blackout shades...summer mornings are bright and come early.

The room was spotless and very well appointed...the service helpful. The breakfast was far beyond a typical continental..another great surprise. Parking was inexpensive and convenient. A super place to stay in an excellent downtown location.

This is a great place to stay in Ottawa. Rooms are spacious, full kitchen, dining room, living room, plus a computer with a printer. Nice simple breakfast fare but good. Close to restaurants and attractions.

Easy to find and on one of Ottawa's major streets, close to many tourist attractions. Parking was a bit confusing at first. Parking insde or outside is both $ 15.00. When inside is full, balance go outside. However, you will not be given the pass code until you are registered in the lobby. Where do you park in the meantime?... More

The room was good size with a separate kitchen. We had not use for the kitchen as we only stayed one night, but was a nice feature. Room was clean, quiet, and staff was friendly.There was parking right next to the hotel with easy in and out. Lots of great places to eat close by.
