I arrived late after a marathon 28 hour trek from Sydney, Australia. I was greeted very politely (it's Canada after all) and got to my room with comparative easy.
The room was tidy (though I did notice in the morning that the carpet way dirty, but it was also a very light beige - not the best colour for a high traffic area...) and the bed very comfortable. There was a free bottle of water and a green apple too (restocked each day).
The room was big enough to work in but small enough to feel cosy, and even though I was facing the street (Slater Street) I wasn't woken by any traffic noise (I was on the 4th floor).
The 'gym' is very small, but kind of standard for smaller hotels. There is one treadmill, one elliptical trainer, one step machine and one exercise bike - all older models but all functioning. There's also a weight bench and a rack of free weights (along with filtered water).
I didn't eat at the hotel as there are many options in Ottawa, but I would have eaten there at some point had my stay been longer (I spent three nights there in total).
The hotel is centrally located and I was able to walk to most tourist attractions and business meetings (downtown Ottawa is very flat).
