Thanks to a mysterious last-minute call from expedia telling us our previous hotel was sold out - we booked 2 week's in advance and it was confirmed then ! - we wound up here. Probably a block or so closer to what we wanted to see. Great check-in, accommodating staff that comped our parking in sympathy for the hassle. Comfy... More

This hotel is in the heart of the Byward Market, within walking distance to everything (the Rideau centre, Parliament Hill, restaurants/bars). Customer service was great! It has an indoor pool, small gym & a bistro/bar. The room was nice/clean. The only issue we faced was the loud music outside at night (we stayed on the 3rd floor & they only... More

A couple of times a year our family likes to take a trip to Ottawa to see the sights and do some shopping. This trip we stayed at the Courtyard due to its excellent location. The hotel is centrally located in the Byward Market area, and you can get to almost any point within a few minutes, including the Mall.... More

Overall a good experience. Location is very central and close to many restaurants and the market. The Parliament building and some site seeing just minutes walk away. Room is nice and bed very comfortable. The bathroom though was not up to it. Very tight sink area and we really wished they could have given us a few more inches to... More

Awesome location, friendly staff...clean, comfortable, quiet rooms. It's always as pleasure to stay here. Great location for biking the city...within walking distance for most attractions! We've been staying here for years and wouldn't stay anywhere else.

Stayed here for a weekend visit with family. King bed with queen sofa bed and roll-away bed made the room comfortable for our family of 4. Unfortunately the sofa bed and roll away bed were not terribly comfortable to sleep on. Also, housekeeping didn't make up these beds when we left for the day. Bathroom was small but well appointed.... More

Hotel is very centrally located with plenty of restaurants etc nearby. Room was a good size with a large bed, coffee machine, tv etc. Aircon efficient too. There's no room service but a good snack bar/ bar that also do take out. Staff were helpful. My only complaint was there was some noise from outside. My room faced the main... More

I have been Ottawa several times, but always had difficulties to find a parking near the PH. This time I just parked my car at the hotel and walked to all the attractions nearby. The Byward market is next to it with many restaurants available. It is a perfect hotel for the weekend getaway.

Basic accommodations located right in the heart of Ottawa's Byward market. This mid range hotel is priced very competitively compared to the more upscale Westin and Fairmont Chateau Laurier nearby. The hotel's location in The Byward Market means it can be quite loud. Make sure to request a courtyard facing room to minimize the noise for a good night's sleep.... More

Guests of the Courtyard Ottawa Downtown will notice that it is indeed a mid-range hotel. For example we do not have a spa on premises nor is there a rooftop bar; what we do offer is an amazing location and incredible service at a reasonable price. Our courtyard-facing rooms are ideal for light-sleepers, however our street view rooms offer beautiful... More
