“Great deal for the price”
Reviewed May 23, 2010

I have stayed at this hotel many times and am always pleased with it. Rooms aren't huge but are big enough. The location cannot be beat - steps away from the market, tons of restaurants, Rideau Center and a few minutes walk away from the Parliament buildings, the canal, etc. Lots of nice touches - coffee always available in the lobby as well as a fruit basket, copies of many of the local restaurant menus, iron and ironing board in the room. I am not usually a fan of hotel breakfast buffets but the one here is terrific, lots of choices and a cook on hand to make fresh omelettes as well as a waffle maker. Ask for a room that faces the courtyard, sometimes street can be noisy.

We stayed at this hotel for one night; we were extremely pleased, as we were right in the centre of Byward Market, close to all restaurants and shops. We look forward to returning soon.

I thoroughly enjoy staying at the Courtyard in Ottawa, ON. The service is excellent. The staff works hard to remember your name and your likes/dislikes which is a very nice touch!

The location can not be rivaled. You are surrounded by hundreds of amazing shops, bars and restaurants! Everything you could ever want is within walking distance!

If you are going to Ottawa, you should definitely stay here!

This hotel certainly is a great location. The overall facility is older and certainly shows some wear. Although this particular weekend there were a lot of under 12 in the hotel and certainly unsupervised, the hotel staff did what they could to control the noise and for those of us that had issues were quick to remedy and offer something in return. I enjoyed there great breakfast, which had some of the best orange juice I have ever had!

The parking is certainly a bit tight and not free which is unfortunate.

I exclusively stay at this hotel when in Ottawa. This year Ill be staying there once a month for a week at a time and look forward to each trip. I park the car after work and am footsteps away from Parliament Hill, the Market, Rideau Center, and Sparks Street. Amazing area...amazing hotel.

I have stayed many times at the Courtyard Ottawa in the last eight years or so. It's location in the Byward Market is very convenient for shopping, eating, and sightseeing, and it is very easily accessible. The underground parking is a plus, though it has increased in price significantly over the past few years. The rooms are highly functional and well set up, with modern amenities, including new flatscreeen TVs. The one potential downfall to this hotel, particulalry on weekend nights, is the noise that can emanate from nearby bars and clubs. At one time, the hotel used to provide earplugs for those ont he outside. However, on our recent stay, that was not the case. Interior rooms are best if this going to be an issue for you (usually, they can honor your request or will ask), though bear in mind they come with no real view (though the quiet can be a nice tradeoff, particulalry in warmer months as the patios at the restaurants behind the hotel become busy).

My family and I had an excellent Easter weekend experience at the hotel. Thursday and Friday were quiet days--we had the pool and exercise facilities to ourselves and breakfast Friday, even with a group of 10, was a breeze. The staff were very helpful about parking for a second vehicle, getting high chairs, etc. Everyone enjoyed the fresh fruit at the front desk, the coffee, tea and biscuits in the lobby. I was even given a token to allow me to remain parked in the hotel's lot after my noon check out on Saturday. Great experience we will repeat!
