Spent a weekend during tulip festival. A trend boutique hotel that offers a superb location. Close to Parliament Hill, shopping and good selection of restaurants. Staff was friendly, efficient and extremely helpful. Rooms are fresh and clean. Will make this our regular hotel on our many future trips to the city.

Excellent hotel. 20-30 minutes from Ottawa Airport by car. 10 minute walk to the Parliament buildings, 20 minute walk to Byward Market. Plenty of restaurants nearby. Great location and very central. Very friendly and welcoming staff. The suite was excellent, superb size, clean and comfy. Although renovations are near complete you are not disturbed one bit. Top tip. If you...

We stayed here for 2 nights. Hotel is modern, clean and a perfect location to see the highlights of Ottawa. The beds and pillows are very comfortable. You should take the Ottawa bus tour. My only concern with the hotel is their restaurant. The food looked good coming out but we didn't eat there because the restaurant looks like a...

We had a two-night stay at the end of April. The Metcalfe Hotel is in a fabulous location just south of Parliament Hill, easy walking distance to so many restaurants, shopping, Starbucks if that's your thing. The best part of the hotel was the personal service given by staff members, from the front desk - Shirley and Christian et. al....

The Metcalfe was a good location for a one night getaway with a friend. The location is good - can get to most sights downtown. Really good rate to try the hotel (while under construction), and it had what we needed. Room was not as clean as would have liked - perhaps due to construction. Also, if want the 'boutique'...

We were well greeted, the staff is very polite and always wishes to help out. The room was perfect. The only thing I found not interesting was that there was too much chlorine and hair in the pool. The gym was alright.

Am staying here for 6 weeks and the hotel is great. Cheaper than the Marriott next door but you still share their gym facilities. Rooms are very clean and the staff is fabulous; the beds are amazing. Hotel is very quiet and the retro look with the renos is so nice. This is hands down my most favorite hotel in...
