Very nice hotel I a brilliant location in Ottawa, side-by-side to the big shopping-centre, not far away from endless nice and inviting bars, clubs and restaurants. (See recommendation "18". The staff is very friendly and open to assist at any time. The bar / restaurant area is very nice. Warm rustically ambient with interesting menu and solid range of local...

We booked through a third party website and received this hotel. Their website says it is 4 star but our experience was anything but. Upon check-in, we were informed about some work being done to the hotel. We got up to our room and it was so loud we couldn't have a conversation. I immediately called the front desk and...

I came to Ottawa for a 2-night stay to attend an AGM. As a disclaimer, my hotel breakfast was complimentary through the organization (not the hotel), however, breakfast items were no different than what is offered to regular hotel guests to my knowledge. My check-in process was very smooth and the Front Desk Agent ("FDA") was very informative. When I...

My sister and I like to stay here! The best thing about it is the location! It is right beside Rideau Centre which has had a facelift and is wonderfully bright with almost total skylights everywhere so makes shopping a pleasure in the cold Spring weather. Also the fact that it is across the street(Rideau St.) from the market with...

This is a nicely appointed modern hotel located right downtown right next to the Rideau Centre. Easy walking distance to anyplace downtown, near the Byward Market, Parliament Buildings, Rideau Canal etc. Was extremely convenient for meetings I had on the same property. My room was exceptional for a very reasonable price. The restaurant offers delicious meals at reasonable prices and...

Comfortable room and good service. They offered to upgrade my room for no charge which was nice when I checked in however I ended up looking out onto a roof with no view and there was construction above me which was loud at times. The location however is unbeatable. You're right in Byward market pretty much and walk out on...

Just spent the weekend at this hotel and was very happy with my choice. The front entrance is on the smaller side for parking, but once that was settled, check in was quick and parking is literally a minute away, it's around $23/day but considering you can walk just about anywhere from this location, it was a no brainer. We...

Very nice, very clean hotel in a great central location in downtown Ottawa. Steps from the shopping mall, the Byward Market and Parliament Hill. Dozens of great restaurants within a few minutes walk. I was disappointed that only one side of the bed had an electrical outlet. This outlet was occupied with a lamp and the clock. In order to...

Was in town for a trade show and found this gem of a hotel on Hotwire for a great deal. It was a 5 minute walk to the Byward Market and only 7 minutes to the Shaw Convention Centre. If the weather was nicer you could easily walk to Parliament Hill within 20 minutes. The rooms have been very modernly...

I stayed at the Novotel as the hotel indicated by a conference I attended. It is very close to the Ottawa Conference Center and it is also waling distance to the market and several restaurants. The bedroom was normal and comfortable enough to rest after days of meetings. Did not use the restaurant so I cannot comment.
