My bf and I have decided to do a last minute day trip in Ottawa Monday, when the snow storm hit the Eastern Ontario. It took us a little longer than usual to get to the capital as the driving condition wasn't too great. We arrived at the hotel minutes before midnight, and it didn't take too long till the valet service came to greet us, and he even stayed with us until he made sure someone at the front desk was available.
We got assigned to Room 309, which faces the office building next door. Our bed was very comfy (we were both exhausted from the long drive), but I think the room was a little too cold. I woke up around 6 to put a hoodie on and when my boyfriend got up he also thought the room was little too cold (he doesn't usually have any problem with cool room temperature).
Bathroom was okay, bit smaller than other hotels we have stayed but that wasn't a huge issue with us. We also went down to the gym around 8 in the morning and found ourselves owning the whole pool, love the pool and Jacuzzi. Overall it was a pleasant stay, staff are all friendly. The only complaint I might have was the hairdryer doesn't work. And we weren't provided with soap and shampoo in our room but lucky there were lots of cleaning staff on our floor in the morning and they were extremely friendly and helpful.
