Beautiful boutique hotel with great, unique decor. The high ceilings let a lot of light in and create great spacious atmosphere. The common areas are lovely, there is coffee, water, and tea in the lobby. The rooms are not very large but well decorated and very comfortable with a spacious bathroom. Would stay again in a heartbeat!
The only downside is the pool which is shared with a neighbouring hotel and doesn't quite match the Metcalfe.
I have stayed at the Metcalfe, sent clients there and even applied for a job there. Why? Because it is brilliantly located, the epitome of a boutique hotel. The anti big no character hotel. People are there for you. Food is good. Very few flaws. Parking isn’t easy access and pool needs help. Otherwise a great experience.
This turned out to be a pleasant surprise from a non large chain hotel. People were pleasant and helpful. Facilities were well maintained and updated. Rooms were decent size and beds comfortable. Restaurant variety was adequate and meals were consistently well prepared. Convenient access to a small gym area and hot tub, pool were well used by children.
My husband and I had a wonderful stay for our anniversary. We took advantage of their winterlude package: free parking and late check out. Great deal! We loved the hotel decor - our favourite so far! Bed was super comfy, room was very quiet and clean. We are going to come back as a family and take advantage of the pool!
Conveniently situated hotel close to all the top sites of Ottawa. Attractively designed public area and room and bathroom. I swam in the pool and was the only one there at the time, also enjoyed their jacussi. The staff were helpful and friendly.
