We stayed in a double dorm room in the Stanton building in May 2012. The room was $65 for 2 single beds. There is a $16 charge for overnight parking in the Perez underground lot which is 1 block away. You can make reservations by internet or 1-800 phone line. Reservations cancelled within 48 hours require 1 night’s payment. The desk is very busy but the staff is genuinely interested and helpful.
The Stanton (double) dorm room has: 2 single beds, with sheets, and a thermal blanket, pillow, large towel, face cloth, soap and shampoo sample, plastic cup, 2 bureaus/dressers, 2 desks, 2 chairs, 2 garbage cans. That is it. There is a telephone but it has no cord to it. There is no television. There is internet access but you have to bring an Ethernet cord. Each floor has a male and female washroom. The woman’s washroom has 3 steel sinks, one toilet, and 2 showers. Bring your flip flops as the floors were dirty (this was very disappointing) and for the communal showers. Bring your housecoat for wearing to the washroom in the night. Ask for a room close to the bathrooms if you have a child with you. There was a kitchenette on our floor. It had a full size fridge and a microwave, sink and table/chairs.
Driving in was an issue due to construction on campus within the GPS’s recommended route. Drive in Laurier East Av, and then turn on Cumberland St and turn right to get to the 15 min parking while you check in, then go back and move your car to underground parking.. Easy walk to the canal which takes you straight to the Chateau Laurier Hotel and Parliament Hill (about 1.5 km). Location is amazing.
Next time, I want to check out the 2 bedroom suites as I think the bathroom access might be easier when travelling with children. Check in is 4 pm and check out is 10h30 am, which makes having to pay the $16 parking fee a bit pricey.
