Actually my small private dorm room in Marchand Residence hall was a tad less than US$200/week which includes the 13% provincial taxes. This is my second time staying here on campus and both times have been like being back in college minus the debauchery and drunken parties (lol). the room is small and is for one guest.

It's a college dorm room; there is no valet parking, room service, a great view, a fireplace or a fluffy pillow or bedspread. It is located almost in downtown Ottawa, close to transportation, with friendly staff and cheap.

Additionally they have suites that accommodate more people and of course cost more per night.

Location is great, walking distance from lots of attractions. However the rooms leave a bit to be desired. Utilitarian is the best word. The most basic of needs are met but that's about it. We stayed in a room with two bedrooms, one bathroom, and a "kitchenette" (c/w fridge, microwave, and sink... nothing else! Not even a bowl and a spoon). Beds are queen and very hammock-like without a box spring. A/C worked just fine. House keeping is minimal, stayed 5 nights and only one bed was made even though two were used every day! Internet was EXCELLENT (wifi), and common-rooms on each floor are great if you're staying with a group. Parking was $16/night in a parkade 2 blocks away.

I've been staying at 90 University with a "family" of 50 elementary school students for quite a few years now and we wouldn't stay anywhere else! This accommodation is very comfortable (two rooms sharing a kitchenette with fridge and microwave, plus washroom), clean, and within the walking distance to the heart of Ottawa. Perfect for a school trip! The reason I would NOT stay there on my own is that large groups make a lot of noise and I sure would not want to be on the floor with a bunch of students running around. It appears that "regular people" are interspersed among group rooms and I can't see how that can be a peaceful stay. In spite of the curfew and a guard, there are always rooms that continue making noise and I would not want to take that chance. The last two weeks of May and June are particularly full but I don't know what happens during the summer months. If you don't care about the noise and possible commotion, then by all means, enjoy the deal! Otherwise, inquire whether there is a large group on your floor and bring earplugs! Note: Suites for people with disabilities have larger rooms and an appropriate bathroom (I think there is one per floor).

Room Tip: Ask if there is a large group on your floor if you don't like noise. Bring earplugs just in case.

I stayed at the University of Ottawa residence located at 90 University for a conference taking place at the university. There are different accommodations. I stayed in a room with two bedrooms, a kitchenette, and bathroom. It had AC. Some other rooms are tiny, have no bathroom, no kitchenette, and no private bathroom.

My room was $100 plus tax (a special price for the conference). Parking is underground in the Perez building, one block away, and costs $16 per day.

The bed linens were clean. The pillows are tiny plastic institutional pillows. Shampoo and towels are provided in the bathroom.

The kitchenette has a refrigerator with freezer and microwave but no oven. There are no dishes, no glasses, no kitchen towels, and no cutlery.

While I was there, there were hundreds of high school students on a school trip. They ran yelling through the halls at night and one pulled the fire alarm at 1:37 a.m.

It was obvious that my room had been cleaned before I arrived but no one had emptied two garbage cans full of old food, beer bottles, and feminine hygiene products.

The room had not been completely cleaned after the university students had left (sticky chairs, Scotch tape on the walls and ceiling) and the TV remote batteries were dead.

If you plan to ask for a wake-up call, make sure you have a back-up because at least two of us never got our calls.

The front desk staff was excellent when I checked in but when I complained about not getting a wake-up call, the young woman simply said that it wasn’t the job of her shift (instead of reporting it to the manager or inquiring about the reason).

I would stay there again for a conference, but not on vacation.

Room Tip: Do not stay in one of the tiny no-frills rooms in summer. They are stifling hot.

We stayed in a double dorm room in the Stanton building in May 2012. The room was $65 for 2 single beds. There is a $16 charge for overnight parking in the Perez underground lot which is 1 block away. You can make reservations by internet or 1-800 phone line. Reservations cancelled within 48 hours require 1 night’s payment. The desk is very busy but the staff is genuinely interested and helpful.


The Stanton (double) dorm room has: 2 single beds, with sheets, and a thermal blanket, pillow, large towel, face cloth, soap and shampoo sample, plastic cup, 2 bureaus/dressers, 2 desks, 2 chairs, 2 garbage cans. That is it. There is a telephone but it has no cord to it. There is no television. There is internet access but you have to bring an Ethernet cord. Each floor has a male and female washroom. The woman’s washroom has 3 steel sinks, one toilet, and 2 showers. Bring your flip flops as the floors were dirty (this was very disappointing) and for the communal showers. Bring your housecoat for wearing to the washroom in the night. Ask for a room close to the bathrooms if you have a child with you. There was a kitchenette on our floor. It had a full size fridge and a microwave, sink and table/chairs.

Driving in was an issue due to construction on campus within the GPS’s recommended route. Drive in Laurier East Av, and then turn on Cumberland St and turn right to get to the 15 min parking while you check in, then go back and move your car to underground parking.. Easy walk to the canal which takes you straight to the Chateau Laurier Hotel and Parliament Hill (about 1.5 km). Location is amazing.

Next time, I want to check out the 2 bedroom suites as I think the bathroom access might be easier when travelling with children. Check in is 4 pm and check out is 10h30 am, which makes having to pay the $16 parking fee a bit pricey.
