Never stayed here before but is central and affordable. Arrived to both my bedroom and meeting room ready to go. Front Desk staff is very polite, friendly, and helpful. Needed an HDMI cable in the meeting room and within minutes of calling front desk it was delivered to the meeting room. Room was clean and acceptable. Rooms have unique features...

The staff was so helpful and pleasant. They made you feel welcome. Comfortable and very quiet room despite being around the corner from the busy breakfast rooms. The included breakfast, itself, was more than what you usually get when it is included and the staff there equally pleasant and accommodating. I'd definitely stay again.

We had two sofa beds in the living room and a separate bedroom. The bed and sofa beds were great. Big table to play games on and eat on in L-shaped living room/dining room. Well-lit kitchen to prepare meals. Delicious breakfast with variety of items to choose from. Grab-bags ready to go for the day. Friendly staff. Would love to...

The location, if not the best, is still very good: about 15 minutes walk to the Parliament Hill and 10 more to Byward Market. The room was clean and spacious but we found the bathroom rather small for this room size. Also, the fact that the bed is right there when you open the door, while the seating area and...

The location is fantastic, close to restaurants, business centre, spas, variety stores, all across the street. The room is large and clean, fantastic bed, great kitchen with all you need, big TV, computer and printer. The staff are great, the breakfast phenomenal. If in a hurry in the morning, you can take out. And guess what, a great price too....

I really enjoyed being in the heart of downtown Ottawa, can find pretty much anything near the hotel, especially within walking distance or by take a bus. There is a 24 hour convenience store, wine store, and a couple bars around the hotel and in the hotel.

We were very comfortable in this suite. It had everything you could ask for. The location is excellent. We enjoyed walking the streets of Ottawa, this hotel is within walking distance of the Parliament Buildings and Rideau Canal. Very friendly helpful staff. Delicious breakfast sandwiches were included among a good variety of other items in the morning.

I've stayed here for pleasure and work and really found it to be worth the price. It's central clean and the rims are very large. The breakfast is also great! Not continental like most places. Recommend it fully.

This hotel is "business" Inn. High Value for a business stay - or for family travel on a budget. You won't get "wow" - not a place for romance. The facility is dated, layout of suites are haphazard. The included breakfast meets needs and again if traveling with a family will be a value getter.

If you just need a place to stay with a full kitchen and don't care about the amenities, this is the place for you. This place has everything that you need and its decent. We had a room on the 10th floor facing the street and we could hear the music till very late at night. I looked over and...
