Researched all Ottawa hotel options and decided on the Courtyard. Pleased with the choice. We were there for three nights over Thanksgiving weekend. Hotel is in incredible location, especially if you are interesed in the urban atmosphere of the Byward area. We could walk absolutely everywhere - Parliament, National Gallery, and all of the restaurants and shops of the Byward Market area were within seconds. Location was a primary consideration for us and this hotel definitely excelled in this area.
We had a car and the parking situation was ideal as well. Rate was reasonable (CAD$9.50 per night) and the hotel offered no less than three parking location choices - outside in an open lot, downstairs (covered), and downstairs indoor (heated). Between the three choices, there were always many spots and space was not the issue I read about at other Ottawa hotels.
The room was comfortable, exactly the same as other Courtyard properities across North America. We had requested an interior room due to the noise concerns posted on this website but were given an outside room nonetheless. We were on the North (ie York Street) side and you could definitely hear club music at night. However, everything seems to shut down at 2 AM. I am very averse to noise but it was tolerable, especially if you turned the fan on. I would recommend though if you don't like noise, to insist on an interior room. Staff was otherwise helpful and friendly.
The hotel also featured a beautiful indoor pool which was a surprise. There was also a miniscule fitness center and a nice lobby lounge.
Overall, I recommend this hotel due to its fantastic central location and competitive rates. Room comfort and parking were also strengths. Only the Chateau Laurier and Westin seemed to have a better location but of course, both were far more expensive.
