"Great Location for Rideau Canal"
Reviewed by a Hotels.com guest on Feb 23, 2013
The location of the hotel was only a 5 minute walk to the Rideau Canal. Skating on the Canal was the purpose of our trip, so it was wonderful. The people at Reception were helpful and friendly. The small restaurant and bar were adequate for our needs. The room which had 2 double beds and a sofa sleeper was very comfortable. The fully-equipped kitchen had everything we needed from the micro-wave, fridge, cooking utensils and dishes. Would definitely recommend this hotel to friends and would stay there again on a return trip to Ottawa.

Very convenient location, within walking distance to all the sites. Breakfast could be improved--fairly basic and plain. Staff very pleasant and helpful. Parking next door in public lot--slightly cheaper than their own garage.
"Next time courtyard room - not streetside"

Sunday morning early - lots of noise outside - lots of metal banging sounds like dumping into a bin. Lots of car honking between midnight and 3am. Room was great, but next time courtyard room not streetside.

Great location and our grandchildren loved the salt water pool. We parked and walked to all the sites on our list---the Parliament Buildings, the Royal Canadian Mint, the Currency Museum, Byward Market, Rideau Canal, restaurants and shopping. Would recommend it and will stay there again.

I chose this hotel because the rate was reasonable and the location manageable. Although "on business" I was self-sponsored.The outside appearance impacted me negatively. In time, I realized it is in the midst of renovations. The room was reasonably clean and comfortable. One has the impression that there is effort, despite the somewhat worn-out decor (the elevators, for instance) to keep the place pleasant. Staff were polite (I saw only those at the desk), and I appreciate being able to print-off my Boarding Pass in the Lobby.
