I stayed here for five weeks while on training for a new job. The room was consistently clean and tidy and the housekeeping staff quite pleasant and friendly. The front desk staff were very helpful (particularly when assisting after I lost my truck keys in a snow covered parking lot) and looked after my requests quickly and effiiciently.
I found this hotel to be very quiet. I was there during the Ottawa Motorcycle Show and, a few weeks later, a hockey tournament. No problems at all.
I didn't use the restaurant or partake of the free continental breakfast (Tim Horton's right across the street), but I did use the pool, fitness centre and hot tub frequently.
A taxi ride into downtown is a bit expensive, but OC Transpo has several routes that stop at, or very near, the front doors. The hotel's airport shuttle is fast, free and very convenient.
The room had a good sized fridge, microwave and coffee maker which i used each day. There are three shopping malls and several restaurants within a few minutes walking for those who are inclined to buy and cook your own meals.
Overall, a very nice and quiet hotel that I'd stay at again.
