Excellent location, convenient parking by hotel. Easy to walk to the main sights of Ottawa from here. Very clean and comfortable room, helpful front desk staff.

4/10 Poor

Business traveler
Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities
The biggest complaint is that there was no valet and guests were required to park and drag their own luggage down a long, filthy, and dangerous back lane. I had no hot water, and nobody showed up to fix anything despite my calls to the front desk. No coffee in the lobby. This used to be a great hotel, and I used to stay often. Never again!!

Business traveler

Disliked: Staff & service
Room was not cleaned during my stay. They systematically put a note on my door as soon as I left (I ran into the housekeeper right outside my door), alleging staffing shortages. I have been to other hotels (and resorts) during and after the COVID crisis, and I was never mislead into a level or service or quality inferior to what it is advertised (and charged for). Also, similar hotels managed to stay abreast of the labour shortages and planned adequately. Do not ask your guest for understanding and apologize for the inconvenience if you have an expectation not discounting your rates to reflect the diminished capacity to offer the advertised services.
