Unfortunately I visited this hotel during pandemic so couldn't get the full experience of what she has to offer, but what I did experience was excellent. Great staff, super clear, large room with great amenities, parking right next door. Great location, a bit of a drive to the parliament buildings, etc, but a really nice location. Lots of shops and restaurants near by (sadly closed or take-out only of course). On site restaurant, 2nd floor, quite pricey but good food. Covid protocols in place were top notch. Enjoy

Cons: Hotel itself is a little bit on the smaller side, smaller lobby and less amenities compared to the Fairmont & Weston Pros: Very unique room style, very spacious (especially compared to the Fairmont). Great use of technology in the room, Bluetooth speaks, cast videos from phone to tv, USB outlets, heated flooring, digital display thermostat etc. Also in a great location, lots of restaurants within a 5 min walk. Parking is actually cheaper through the hotel at $35/day. Staff was extremely friendly, check in was very professional. Overall a great positive environment. Hotel is also very close to the canal, depending on your room, you can get views of Parliment hill. If you’re deciding between Le Germain and the Fairmont, and if pricing is equal, I would recommend Le Germain. The rooms are much bigger and newer. I would definitely stay here again!

This is my second time staying at a Le Germain hotel, but my first time at the Ottawa location. I love the modern feel of the hotel and the rooms. The bed and room furniture are comfortable and the little side table/desk are perfect for takeout meals. (The mini bar fridge works great for leftovers too!) The Nespresso coffee maker in the room is a nice feature, especially on wintery days. One suggestion would be for a boot tray/mat in the room - it's Ottawa in the winter - this would be much better than boots on the tile! The location is very walkable; it's a quick walk to Byward Market and just a little longer to Sparks Street and Parliament. It's very close to the Canal as well. The staff were friendly and helpful. There's no Valet service right now, but we were able to park in the connected garage for $35 plus tax a day. It's a little pricey if you ask me, but worth it to avoid lugging a suitcase through the snow. They have a text service where you can simply text a request to the hotel staff for any items you need. This was a quick way to get extra Nespresso pods or glassware brought to the room. There were two things that brought this review down. The connector to stream on the TV wasn't functioning properly for us. Considering this might be our cable, we requested another one from the hotel (iPad connector) and there was none available. We tried wireless streaming to the tv and that didn't work well either. We could have asked for someone to come to our room to try and fix it, but that's not a great option during Covid. Normally I wouldn't even care about this, but there are limited entertainment options these days and the ability to connect to the large screen tv matters. My second concern was the noise from large trucks in the morning. We were on the 7th floor and it was loud! No need for a wake up call here. I recommend speaking to the hotel when making a reservation and specifically requesting a quiet room.

Suite 1101- Large, clean, bright room with a modern decor. Perfect for the three of us. Practical table with kitchen area for our meals, especially with a 5 year old child. The service was really excellent. We had a lot of fun and it felt really good to travel again. We forgot for a few days the pandemic reality ... My new home when visiting Ottawa.
