Residence Inn's are always a hit; Marriott's got the formula right. And this hotel is one of their standouts. The property is in an older building, but don't let little idiosyncrasies like the fourth floor lobby or smaller elevator stop you. Why? For one thing, the suites are over-sized, even by Residence Inn standards. What a great place for our family of four to spread out. Also, as a constant business traveler, I always love the extra room to stretch and walk around.
The breakfast buffet was the best I've ever had at a Marriott. No formula scrambled eggs here, these are the real thing, served with sausage, beans, tortillas, potatoes, make-your-own waffles, and all the normal bagels, juices, etc.
Two grocery stores are nearby (just a 2 or 3 blocks away), along with quite a few restaurant choices. But the real winner is location, location, location. Walk about 4 blocks and you are at Parliment Hill. The summer of 2006 has a light and sound show each night at 9 and 10 PM, lighting up the entire Parliment Center building. It is free and dazzling. Nearby are the fully functional locks that really started it all for Ottawa, still manned by hand, and also within an easy walk.
This is a great city, and like this hotel it possess a subdued and very polite personality.
