“National Conference”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013

It wasn't too bad of a place, very average. There was a large amount of us staying in the hotel for 4 nights and 5 days. The food they served was not very good but considering they were cooking for 200 people it wasn't that bad but if I was here for pleasure then I would have been very unhappy with how the food was. The staff at the front desk were amazing though and were always trying their best to help us out!

Room Tip: Do NOT get a cot!! The sheets do not stay on them properly!!

We just returned from a wonderful stay at The Best Western Gatineau, near Ottawa. We had the best of both world here! Our room overlooked the river and the Parliament Bldgs. Every time I looked out our window, I felt like I was dreaming; the view can not be beat! Because we stayed
in French Gatineau, we heard French all around us, which we loved! The Reception Desk and hotel managers were completely bilingual, and were so friendly and helpful! Our room "with the
view" was lovely, and included a small fridge, and a wide screen tv. The A/C was super, and we really needed it at that time! The bed was oh, soo comfortable! Either a 20 min walk across the
bridge or a 5 min car ride took us to the Rideau Ctr and Byward Market. We'd return tomorrow if we could! Thanks to the wonderful staff and management!

Room Tip: Rooms on a high level, AND WITH RIVER VIEW, are best. Request that when making your Reservation.

We had a fantastic stay here! Friendly staff and clean rooms. The location was superb with only minutes walk to a great museum and just across the bridge from downtown Ottawa and all it offers. A beautiful view from our balcony facing the river. We would highly recommend this hotel to friends and family. :)

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony facing the river.

Stayed here for a couple nights last summer. Room seemed abit cold and damp even though there was a drought. Bed was comfortable. Hallway is pretty crammed when the maids are cleaning. The restaurant had amazing breakfast. Parking was bad if there was no parking spots in the parking lot you'd have to park down the street. Average hotel, I probably wouldn't stay here again I'd stay closer to the city.

My family and I stayed here for a conference at a nearby location. Don't let the outside appearance fool you. The inside has been completely renovated. All of the staff; front desk, custodial,restaurant and housekeeping were exceptionally friendly, accommodating and were fully bilingual. The location allowed a pleasant walk all major attractions. Our room was very clean and tidy and we were quite comfortable for our two day stay. The view of the river and parliament buildings were spectacular, both day and night, and could not be beat. It is hard to imagine that another hotel could provide all of these features at such a reasonable rate.
When we visit the Ottawa-Gatineau area again, I know where we will be staying.

Room Tip: Rooms on the river side, on higher floors afford spectacular views.

Stayed here June 14th/2013 for our 44th wedding anniversary..Nice people at the front desk..Beautifull view of the city of Ottawa, the Parlement and the river..great location in front of the Jacques Cartier Park and close to museums, bike trails. Room was nice and bed was super comfortable...must agree that the bathroom was small but manageable.
Visited Gatineau Park, Domaine McKenzie King, Lake Meech within 20 min. drive from the Hotel.
I only wished that they would have offered me a room with a balcony but I'll request it next time.

I'm surprised that it has a higher rating because I didn't find it all that spectacular. It was "ok" my view was of neighbouring houses, not the river and my room was missing the inside curtains, the balcony was not safe for young children, IMO. The staff wasn't overly accommodating and the last night we were there, they booked about 50 tweens into the surrounding rooms. Not overly impressed, especially since we have a small child. The pool was not what I expected, but it was ok. I've been in worse, but for the price and location, I've also been in much better... (The Marriott Residence Inn-same room, layout was much better, cleaner, staff friendlier!)
