Overall, not a very impressive hotel. Front desk looked like a hole in the wall, and staff were not particularly friendly. Room seemed to have been decorated in the 1980s, dark and not very attractive. If I were paying, I would probably not stay here again, although the location is wonderful and very convenient. The hotel restaurant was overpriced. The highlight was the great running along the banks of the Rideau River, starts very close to hotel and goes fairly far (6+ mile loop, map available in hotel). Multiple bridges at which to cross over to opposite bank. Could also go ice skating (in season) on the river. Easy walk to see the Capitol buildings.
