This is a nice modern hotel in downtown Ottawa. Free internet and wifi in the room plus 4 Mac computers in the hotel lobby. Clean, modern and comfortable.
The hotel is near the University of Ottawa, and beside the Rideau shopping centre. It is minutes from the Byward Market, where there are lots of restauraunts, pubs and interesting shops. Just be careful at night as there are some panhandlers and seedy types in the area.
Be sure not to lose your parking ticket! If you do, it is a real hassle to get out. I had to go back to the front desk and ask for a replacement (which they did promptly with no problem) but I still had a hard time getting out of the public parking garage with it.
The hotel also has good access (once you learn how to navigate around it) to the TCH. That was handy for getting to and from the Senators hockey game in Kanata. (Warning: allow LOTS of time, say 2 hours, to get to the hockey arena as the traffic is terrible! We only allowed 1 hour to get there and we missed the first period!)
