Embassy Hotel and Suites
Ranked #46 of 68 Hotels in Ottawa
Reviewed October 25, 2012

This hotel is pretty basic but given the fact that it was inexpensive, what can you expect. It was clean and convenient to the core of the city. I was there on the weekend and the restaurant was closed for breakfast. There is a kitchenette in the suite so that would be reasonable for families or anyone staying for a few days. The room was spacious and comfortable. The staff at the front desk were friendly and helpful. The outdoor parking was $11 a night plus tax.

For basic accommodation in downtown Ottawa this hotel fits the bill.
The only reason that I did not give it four stars was that the facilities were limited and the hotel dated. I had no problems there, however and picked it as an inexpensive option - and got what I expected.

I got lot of information from this website, so decided to leave a review.The room is clean but the staff are very unfriendly. The old guy at check in was very rude and he actually is having issues I guess. I just asked him twice about parking and he was so mad at me and I was worried he would do something. I really think he is having some issues and I think someone has to take care of this before he does something to the customers.

I quite often have to stay overnight in Ottawa for business. This is my second stay at Embassy H & S. I appreciate the fact that I can be in an apartment setting with the ability to produce my own meals if I so desire. The suite was clean and comfortable. The service was very good. The only problem was the parking. Both times I have stayed here, my check in was late evening. Because there is limited parking, I had the hassel of finding a place on the street, or paying for parking overnight and having to move my vehicle early in the morning. Overall, good value for the price.

Intro:

I needed a room close to Elgin street and the Embassy was the closest.

I saw the pictures with the dated furnishings - but it was the closest.

Room was $130 per night via Expedia,

A colleague tried to book later but they were full.

I guess they don't need to renovate.

Review:

Staff were great. I needed a basket of goodies and the sales person went above and beyond the call of duty. Much appreciated. Without this amazing work I would have rated this property poorly.

The hallway is depressing and sad.

Opening the room door and there was an unusual smell. Not exactly bad but not great.

The room furnishing look 20 years old. It is worse than the pictures.

Staying one night was fine - but staying longer would be painful.

I don't understand the other reviews saying it is very good or excellent - it's not.

This should be rated poor except for staff being so good.

Room Tip: Don't stay here more than one night.

I spent a week in Ottawa for a working group meeting, and booked this hotel because it was slightly cheaper than many others and offered free internet. It was a good choice. The rooms are huge, and you get a functioning kitchen with it. Internet just works. Although they are building a skyscraper just opposite, the place is relatively quiet. The furniture is rather old-fashioned, but that doesn't disturb me.

We had a lovely suite that was like a one bedroom apartment with a spacious balcony and full size fridge. A little dated but tastefully decorated and very clean. The staff was very helpfull. They assisted with late departure.
If was a great location , walking distance to parliment hill. Right behind city hall. If you want hotel parking get there early they run out of spaces. We had no problem though there is free parking on the street on weekends. Lots of that.
