The accommodations in the Kanata area do not offer much in the way of variety. Having tried most of them, I have experience enough to compare. The only hotel of greater quality than this hotel in my opinion is Brookstreet and that is technically in Ottawa, although closer to central Kanata than to downtown Ottawa. I have now stayed at this hotel several times. This property is my property of choice but there is a price to be paid. It is considerably more pricey than other properties in the immediate area. There are however tangible offerings for the additional cost.
The hotel has a great location just off the expressway and next to a number of stores, shops and restaurants, a grocery store, a bank/ATM, movie theater, etc all within walking distance although given the size of the entertainment complex it can be easier to drive.
The staff has been extremely friendly and always eager to help if needed. The queen suite is smaller than some other suites where I have stayed in the past but it is comfortable, with a living area with sofa (folds out into bed), coffee table, TV, a work desk with internet access, coffee maker and chair. The bedroom is seperated from the living area by double glass doors with sheer curtains. My wife and I I have found the queen bed to be comfortable however the bedroom feels slightly cramped with little room to navigate. There is a closet and a dresser with drawers and TV. A bedside radio/alarm is provided. The bathroom is standard fare in decor but has always been clean, as has the suite. Parking is ample although it is sometimes necessary to park at the back of the hotel since there are limited parking slots in front. Check-in has always been pleasant and quick and my bill has been under the door each morning when I checked out. I have never eaten in the hotel so I can't offer any insight into the hotel food.
