Stayed here recently for three nights for a conference. Hotel has a great location, at the corner of Laurier Ave right across from Confederation Park. It is a short walk to Parliament Hill, the War Memorial, National Arts Center, and the nearby Rideau center and Market area for shopping.
I was given a room on the seventh floor, lots of windows that you could open (2 in main room, one in bathroom). My colleague had a suite on the 11th floor, neat design...TV was on an Island in the middle of the room and could be turned towards the bed or towards the sofa on the opposite side of the room. Room was nice and clean, bed was comfortable, a little construction noise from the alley below but no big deal.
Hotel has a small pool in the basement with a whirlpool. A small weight/exercise area is adjacent to the pool, and off the side is changing room/showers/sauna. There are four elevators, so never a long wait to get to the room. There is a Starbucks at the end of the lobby and a nice sitting area with a fireplace adjacent to the front desk.
I enjoyed my stay here, the location is great and more central than the Albert at Bay, although the rooms (all suites) are much larger at the Albert where I enjoyed having the sofa/sitting area, which my room here did not offer.
