We stayed here for 4 nights while visiting family in area. Great location, close to Airport and to the Airport Parkway, to get downtown. Staff were excellant, as was the Breakfast. Only thing missing was a safe in the room.

Nice hotel, but received amazing, thoughtful service from Baldeep. He actually offered to drive us to a store to get necessities as we had no luggage, due to weather and flight cancellations etc. Conveniently located very near Ottawa airport. Great free breakfast.

We overnighted here when we had to catch an early morning flight to the airport. The staff were very nice, even made us up a breakfast bag when we had to leave the hotel at 0445 since the breakfast room would not be open. Good location, near to the Royal Oak Pub, Lone Star Texas Grill, etc. My only complaint...

Nice hotel. Slow elevator. Ice machine on third floor and most machines in laundry room are out of order. No sign of any repairs over the four days I was there. Friendly staff at front desk. Seemed expensive at ~145 per night. Cleaning staff is noisy and never once answered my hello or good morning.

Stayed in the suites with 2 queens. The "living room" area was separate enough from the sleeping area that we were able to watch tv after the kids went to bed. Better than some of the older Holiday Inn restaurants.
