Stayed here for our anniversary on Halloween and it was very clean and beautiful. Only problem was there was a party next door with music and yelling until 7am with a large group of people and no one wearing a mask in a pandemic. Disappointing that the hotel didn't do anything to prevent this.

Dear Guest, Thank you for choosing to stay with us during Halloween and we are happy to see that you have enjoyed certain aspects of our hotel. We apologize for the inconvenience caused by other guests that affected your experience. Our policy in these cases is to warn the guest creating noise once and the second time we ask them to leave the hotel. I will certainly follow up as to what happened in that particular night. Also in regards to Guest wearing masks is part of our standard COVID Protocol and we enforce it whenever guests are not complying. In your case it sounds that the guests were unruly and disobedient. I will ensure this message gets passed on to our team and once again please accept our sincere apologies. Should you decide to come back and visit us again please do not hesitate to contact me personally. Genuine regards

I have been visiting Ottawa frequently for work and have stayed in many hotels over the last few months and the customer service I received from Samantha and front desk was incredible. Very helpful and so accommodating that I booked my next work trip here because of her! Keep it up!

I'm in my room right now and loving it. King-size bed all to myself. Computer area, lounge chair, large flat screen t.v. , spotless room and bathroom. Fridge, coffee/tea maker. Milk and coffee creamers. Nice. I'm a tea drinker and cream in tea is nasty. Way to go guys! Thank you. Feel absolutely comfortable, especially during these Covid times. I'll stay again. A vending machine with late snacking and ice would be a nice added bonus for future.

Good location, clean , quiet , comfortable beds, room smaller than we expected. There is a chair at the desk and no other chair in the room . A second chair would be nice rather than having to lay on the bed to watch tv.
