Stayed here with my daughters for one night. Check in was a breeze, room was great, clean and nice. Bed was comfy, pillows were good! We had dinner in the hotel that night. While the service was good the food ok but the prices were high for what is was worth. The next morning we had breakfast vouchers that came... More

Stayed mid August for five nights, I asked to change my room due to minor toilet problem. Then asked the reception how much it would cost to upgrade me to a suite. She replied that since I am a platinum IHG member, I would be upgraded for free. That was excellent deal that we enjoyed during the remaining 4 days... More

Stayed for one night on business in July, and found the rooms to be clean and renovated. Location of the hotel is great with a mall across the street and a number of walking distance restaurants. It's also well positioned to head down to Byward market, only a few minutes by car. Overall a pleasant stay, and would be happy... More

After a very busy month at work, we decided to head on a trip to Montreal and Quebec. Since we were driving from Toronto and stopped over at Kingston to visit the land of Thousand Islands, we decided to take a break in Ottawa and visit the capital city of Canada. We stayed at the Holiday Inn Ottawa East who... More

Staff are pleasant and helpful. Location is handy for highway access. Room is nice, clean, spacious with quiet a/c. The wifi connection was constantly dropping, very frustrating when trying to work. I booked the room with breakfast included, this only covers one specific item on the menu. Not a major issue, just makes the deal seem a but slick. Would... More

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for three nights. It's easily accessible from highway 417 and St. Laurent shopping center is cross the street. Several restaurants and grocery stores are nearby. The walk to downtown takes about 80 minutes for those who don't mind it. You can also take bus 7 to downtown and back right from street... More

If you are in Ottawa for business or pleasure - perfect hotel as it is just off the highway, across the street from St. Laurent shopping center which features a 24 hour goodlife fitness and next door to Lonestar restaurant. Plenty of free parking and nicely decorated and clean - this is my go to hotel.

The hotel is very clean and the staff are super-friendly. I travel to Ottawa a couple of times per month and will definitely make this my home-away-from-home while in the nation's capital. The Business Center is very large and spacious.

We had a good stay, the hotel is nice and modern. However I have never experienced such rude miserable staff at a hotel. The woman talked to you as if you were an idiot, very snarky answers to anything my mom and I asked her. I was not impressed and do not appreciate being talked down to. I can't remember... More
