Charlottetown, Canada
Reviewed yesterday NEW

I love the Marriott Residence Inn in Ottawa. It is close to everything I need including my office. The only negative I can offer is that I had to request coffee for my room most days as I was participating in the hotel's green program. Wasn't a big deal but felt room attendant should replenish that sort of thing daily.

Just a little over the bridge from the government buildings. Has HUGE rooms! Breakfast in the morning is nice (get there early before the crowds) and a manager's special in the evening makes it a nice choice. Be prepared when you arrive that you will need to go up to the 4th floor to check in.

We stayed for 7 nights. The full kitchen was perfect for nights in or having leftovers. The washer/dryer were perfect and made it easier to pack light. We travelled with a 7,6,4 year old and it was a great room with beds separated from the main living space so kids could go to bed earlier and you didn't worry about...

This is a very good hotel with great service. Our room was a huge suite with fully functional kitchen and lots of room. Great location as well, you can walk to most of the attractions the great city of Ottawa has to offer.

Hotel is mediocre. If your looking for good value and close to downtown it's not too bad. Reception and check in is on the 4th floor. Rooms are ok and could use updating. Only booked as the usual hotels I stay at were twice the price during the time I traveled

Great location, close to everything we want to do and very comfortable. Always clean and just what we want for a couple of days away with some home comforts. Love having the option of getting breakfast or just making it in the suite.

Hotel is on a great downtown location close to main touristic attractions. Our suite had a kitchenette, living room and bedroom with 2 queen size beds and a bathroom. Breakfast buffet offered 7-10 am was very good. It also includes free Wi-Fi. We would come back again in our next visit to the Capital.

Where to begin. I was travelling on business and staying in a large corner suite on the 8th floor (Room 811). From start to finish, the staff and service was amazing. I arrived to my room to find a small apartment with a full kitchen, living room and separate bedroom. I had a handwritten note welcoming me with Lindt chocolates....

“I do not subscribe to the hang this tag on the door by 2 am if you dont want your room serviced the next day; I think its just a reason to cut down on staff. Better to just leave a note or tell the staff yourself. :)”
