Nice

Pros: Close restaurants
The hotel is lovely...price for the room is a little much but i'm guessing it's to keep out the undesirables. Average size room which is fine for short stays. Nice toasty feeling. Close to restaurants and shopping. Just up the street are some amazing views of the city. Reminds me of London.

The room was fine except it was located on the 2nd floor and had no view!

The overall experience of the hotel was great. Our only complaint was the room was located on the 2nd floor at the back of the hotel overlooking the rooftop equipment and a brick wall.

Very good

My husband and I always stayed at this hotel every time we are in Ottawa. It's a great location and close to everything although the parking is a little bit expensive. The room is nice and clean and very spacious. The staff are friendly and very helpful. I will recommend this hotel to friends and family.
