We had a girls weekend and stayed in a one bedroom suite. It was perfect! The room had everything we needed and the beds were comfortable. The front desk staff made us feel very welcome. Thanks Kimberley and the other ladies for taking such good care of us! We will definitely return and highly recommend this hotel!

Every year we go to Ottawa for business meetings and most of the time we stay Downtown, but this time the meetings took place close to Airport, so we found the closes hotel to our destination. It seemed like a good idea at a time. Unfortunately, we found out upon our arrival that this hotel is located in the middle...

One of the nicest Holiday Inns I've ever stayed in. Clean, modern amenities, helpful staff, huge rooms, and great free breakfast. Was vacationing in Ottawa for 3 days and looking for a place close to downtown, but without the downtown hotel hassles and expenses (parking, wifi, etc.). This hotel served my needs perfectly. An easy 15 minute drive and you...

This hotel is located not too far from the airport. There is a Park and Fly where you can leave your car if you are going away for an extended time. There is a lot of construction in the area and not too much else as it is a new area. The hotel is clean and the staff is pleasant....

Hotel provided friendly airport pick-up, transportation to a local restaurant, and to a car rental business. The area is being built up, so construction surrounding the hotel. However, a short walk to the edge of the property, there is a mini-mall with a pizza restaurant, a Chinese take-out place and the "Royal Oak" Pub. Didn't try the first two but...

I stayed 5 days for business at this hotel. At breakfast I enjoyed the vast selection. During the evening I used the gym, pool and the whirlpool. My room was clean and with the normal standard we expect for an Holiday Express. The only negative, I have for this property is the noisy AC/Heating system they have.

I choose to stay at Holiday Inn chain due to the consistent quality. This HI express maintains the quality that I expect. Nice and new hotel. Heating/Cooling system a wall unit but was fairly decent. I am not a fan of these types of systems as they are inconsistent. These are new units which were consistent. Generally a nice hotel.

Love this location. Most of the things are consistent with Holiday Inn Express brand hotels else where. It is quiet, the service is great. The front desk staff (Jack and Greg) are really friendly and helpful. Breakfast is typical, but I see they have Greek yogurt and hard boiled eggs which I like very much. Eating area is spacious and...
