The rooms are huge, clean and comfortable. There's a computer and printer in each room and an excellent free breakfast is provided. All this at an exceptional price within walking distance of main sights, restaurants and pubs. Outstanding!

I came on a business trip with my family (2 kids). It was an excellent location, very very clean room, all the amenities you can think of (fridge, stove, microwave, sofa bed, 2 tvs, computer, printer, free laundry) and the free breakfast is very convenient. We had absolutely no complaints... no noise concerns. We stayed for four nights and had... More

Clean comfortable room with all the amenities. Courteous staff and lots of options make this the best deal in Ottawa. They really go out of their way to make you feel at home. I love the room, the two TV's and the balcony view. I also love the easy parking options. Great!

Only stayed for two nights but enjoyed our stay. The room was very large. The included breakfast had lots of choice, including a bagged breakfast/snack that you could just grab and take away. Great to have a kitchenette in the room..a couple of grocery stores were a block or so away. Downsides: weak coffee; in our room one side of... More

Very comfortable and roomy. Staff most courteous. Best breakfast ever. The location on Elgin and MacLaren was perfect for sightseeing, walking, shopping and nightlife. Looking forward to returning in the fall.

Arrived quite late to the hotel and tired, but the reception was efficient and welcoming. Room was a surprise as it was large and comfortable, bed also the same. Breakfast was adequate and included, so another positive. The one problem I had was with the tv remote, which was for me overly complicated. Staff were all helpful and we had... More

We stayed here for two nights over the May long weekend. The hotel was totally sold out. The continental breakfast was fantastic with go bags if you didn't have time to actually stay for breakfast. The rooms were clean and quiet the small kitchen and computer with printer provided an excellent extra. The hotel is very close to everything auto... More
