Stayed here 2 nights while on a business trip. This is a brand new hotel and you could tell - everything is in good condition. The room I had faced a highway yet you could not hear any noise. It was very quiet, which made for great sleep. My room was HUGE - the size of a suite in most other hotels. Upon entering the room, there is a hallway with a little ledge at the end of it for you to put keys etc. There is a reasonable sized closet and a very large, two tiered work desk with ample plug ins for all your electronics. Chair for the table was very comfortable. Definitely designed for a business traveller. There was a comfy couch which converts into a queen sized bed. The king bed was very comfortable and the sheets were clean. There was also a kitchenette area with a bar sink, a mini fridge, a microwave and lots of storage space and kitchen counter. The bathroom was very large and clean. Did not find any hairs on towels or sheets or bathroom. There was an iron and ironing board in the closet.
The only thing I found odd was that there was no in-room safe. I looked everywhere and in every drawer and could not find one. The AC unit was also a bit noisy, which I thought was unusual for a brand new hotel. Other than these 2 minor issues, I was happy with everything else. The staff I encountered were all very friendly.
I would recommend this property if you are visiting Ottawa. It is a bit out of the way though as it is not downtown but if you have a car, downtown isn't far away.
