This hotel is in an ideal location for tourists. It was an easy walk to the Parliament Building; there is a large selection of restaurants around the hotel and within a short walk from the hotel. The Byward Market area provides a number of restaurants to choose from both a price-wise and variety perspective. National Gallery of Art, Rideau Canal, and the Ottawa River are within easy walking distance. The area seemed safe during the day and at night with people on the streets at least until 11 P.M. Parking (paid) is convenient in an adjacent surface lot. We would certainly stay at this property again.

Thank you for reviewing us on TripAdvisor! We always enjoy positive comments.

Being in the Byward Market is a definite advantage for our hotel we are close to a lot of the major attractions. Such as Parliament hill that showcases Mosaika (Sound and Lights show) during the summer months. The market area itself has over 130 restaurants of all different types.

We are delighted to hear that you liked your time at the hotel. We look forward to seeing you again!

Van-Gogh package for 2 (164.00$ per night) including breakfasts.
Valet parking: 19$ per day
bath-shower: excellent
king size bed: average (according to my wife) OK for me.
air conditionning: effective but very noisy
tv: excellent (but had to turn up the volume every time the air conditionning started)
A small refrigerator for the drinks.
Ice machine in the allway (and working!); good ice.
curtains: excellent with almost no exterior light into the room.
wi-fi, internet (terrible): could not get the internet pages (time-out) most of the time so it was useless.
Electrical outlets on the lamps: very good idea.
View: roof of the lobby.
Furniture: OK
Air dryer (found on the last day hanging with the coat hanger because I did not hang the cloths on arrival!!!).
Excellent personnel.
Refreshments and fruits available in the lobby creates a welcomming atmosphere.
Would I go back: yes if they fix the air conditionners.

I would like to thank you for sharing your comments and thoughts regarding your recent stay at the Courtyard Marriott Ottawa. Your feedback is much appreciated!

We do have various packages available and I’m glad you were able to take advantage of it. We are currently offering valet services. However, it is only for the duration of our construction phase until the ramp is reopened. Once the ramp is open again our underground parking will be available for a fee.

I am pleased to hear you enjoyed the room and hotel during your stay and all are rooms do come standard with a refrigerator. Unfortunately, during your stay we were experiencing technical difficulties with the internet; however, we have since fixed the problem and the internet is back up to speed.

We do strive to provide excellent customer service and I am happy that you enjoyed your stay.
Thank you again for your comments and we hope to host you again!

Much of what this hotel has to offer has been outlined by other reviewers. However, the absolutely excellent service and pleasant manner of the staff was so much appreciated that I had to write.

The great places to "hang out", the redone pool & gym area, remodelled rooms which were clean and efficient, the availability of computers with free WiFi, the proximity to so much to enjoy in Ottawa all make this a great place to stay. We were there during the Olympics and really enjoyed the personal TV sets in the bench seating in the bistro area, too.

Thank you for taking the time to share your great experience at the Courtyard Marriott Ottawa!

It’s wonderful to hear that our staff made such a difference in your stay! We truly want each guest to feel welcomed and ensure they are having a good time while visiting Ottawa. As we recently renovated the rooms and common areas, it’s nice to have such positive feedback about the changes. We truly appreciate it. The personal TVs in our Bistro are great for watching a sports game or even keeping children entertained with cartoons during breakfast. And our location is perfectly located to offer our guests lots to see and do all within a very short walk! We always have great recommendations for fun activities or great places to eat so I encourage guests to come talk to us about their plans.

Again, we’d like to thank you for posting a review on TripAdvisor and we hope to see you soon in Ottawa!

When we visited Ottawa August 2012 we stayed at the Courtyard Marriott downtown. Everything about our stay was first class from the awesome receptionist, parking valet, the room, the pool, the location. Easy drive in off highway. Without our asking the receptionist told us about wonderful free events in the city for the period of our stay. We walked all over Ottawa. Large variety of excellent restaurants and shops nearby.

Room Tip: Great hotel, great value.
