“Great Option When Visiting Ottawa”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

I normally stay at the Fairmont or Westin when in the Ottawa area, however with a large conference in the City rooms were at a premium. I decided to stay at the Hilton just across the river and I am glad I did. This hotel was top notch right from the check-in to check-out. The room was well appointed and the common areas are very nice. If you want to get away from the downtown noise and action, this is the place to stay within a short drive of the Ottawa core. Free parking as well at the hotel which is a nice change.

My wife and I selected the Hilton Lac-Leamy only after discovering that the Westin Ottawa (by the Parliament buildings) was sold out. This turned out to be good luck for us as the Hilton is a lovely hotel. The rainy weather limited our opportunities to explore the walking trails through the grounds and around the lake but at least we were able to enjoy the views from our "Deluxe Lakeview" room. Not unlike Las Vegas, it seems like the rooms at this casino hotel here represent very good value for the money.

Room Tip: Unless you plan to spend all of your time in the Casino you should consider paying the small upgrade...

Everything you'd expect from a Hilton: good services, clean, big rooms, traditional decor, nothing wild. In front of a lovely lake and besides the casino if you like to gamble. The only downside is that you can't go anywhere without a car and right as you leave, you're in a criss-cross of highways that can lead you anywhere in minutes, but also confuse the heck out of a driver if you're not used to the area.

This hotel was clean, room amazing and just an excellent hotel. Staff were very friendly and service was top notch! I have been in Poland for 10 days wihout a bathtub,and this tub was a sunkened tub, with soft towels and with excellent bath products, made the stay even better. The restaurant had an excellent menu with a covered outdoor patio overlooking the lake.

We stayed at this hotel for three nights and were quite pleased with the property overall. The hotel is located outside of downtown Ottawa which we knew when we booked (just an FYI $20-$30/Canadian) cab ride to get downtown but we did not mind that as it was away from the noise etc. of downtown, which for us was a nice change. The indoor and outdoor pools are fantastic, quite large with double Jacuzzi's, and there is a beautiful view of the river and city from the outdoor pool area. The locker rooms and pool areas are well appointed, and well-staffed. The bellman service is quite friendly and readily available. The hotel restaurant (Arome Seafood and Grill) very much exceeded our expectations from a hotel restaurant, worth checking out for dinner, Most impressive was the quality of the room, it was quite large for a standard room and the bathroom was incredible for value, large, with tub and extremely large walk-in marbled shower - quite impressive. Overall, excellent stay at this Hilton, and we would highly recommend it.

Note: Bumping into tourists staying at other downtown hotels, it sounds like many of them are possibly dated, so may be worth your while to drive across the river for a newer experience

Restaurant Recommendations:
-Arome Seafood and Grill (In Hilton Lac-Leamy)
Very solid choice definitely exceeds the usual expectations for a hotel restaurant. The Steak Tartare is recommended, along with the chicken breast entree.
- Sterling Steakhouse
Located across the river in Quebec (about 15 minutes from downtown).
Excellent setting in a remodeled home with great river views. The decor is classic but homey steak house style. The menu features great options for steak and seafood, the Rib Eye on the bone is recommended and the Crème Brule for dessert.
- BOM Burgers (in Ottawa's Gay Village)
Excellent off-main street type of Bistro. Excellent appetizers and sandwiches, cool type of place, check it out.

My husband and I recently spent 3 nights at this hotel and loved our experience. Heaven knows how demanding I am, so when I say I love theis hotel, it has to be near perfect in every way. The rooms are big, airy, bright, with all basic conveniences, including a fridge and a safe. We had a superior room, so it also had a large entrance with a side table. I don't think however that the TV, although big and flat screened, was HD. The hotel itself is very nicely furnished and configurated and the service was excellent throughout, in every department. One gets the feeling that the staff are there to please us. Isn't THAT a refreshing attitude. And although this is a 5-star resort with all of the bells and whistles, it isn't stuffy or pretentious. By car, it is a quick 10-minute ride to Ottawa's Parliament Hill and downtown area, yet it feels as though we're in the countryside, as the property is on the shore of Lake Leamy. The views are most attractive. And the food was consistently well prepared and presented at every meal we had there. Connected to the hotel is a convention center and casino, 2 more reasons to stay at this Hilton. You won't be disappointed if you stay here.

Stayed here for two nights and was able to get one of the suites with the view over the lake. The room was nice, clean, and spacious. Had late lunch at the restaurant -- sadly, the food and service were below my expectation. The executive lounge on 19th floor was nice, especially in the morning for breakfast, great food selections.
Overall, the stay was pleasant and will return to this hotel when I visit Ottawa.
