There was a sound like a banging pipe in our room. Reported this to the front desk and they were able to relocate us to a new room which was much better. Staff were all excellent but the hotel itself feels a little dated and could use a refresh. Particularly vexing was our check in. The driveway was extremely congested but eventually we were able to park and check in. Overall a good experience.

The Hotel was walking distance to many tourist sights and restaurants; including the Byward Market. It is attached the the Rideau Centre Shopping Centre which was very convenient. The room was a good size, clean and had a beautiful view of the Rideau Canal, and Parliament Hill.
