First time in Ottawa and I would definitely stay at this hotel again. Pleasantly surprised to be greeted with a complimentary wine tasting showcasing Ontario wines (some will now be on heavy rotation when I get back home) and excellent food from the hotel bistro - wow! Many

I stayed here for 10 nights and found the location to be ideal! It is a block away from the Rideau centre mall and it’s almost next to the byward market. The staff are all super friendly and accommodating! The airline lost my luggage and when they delivered it to the hotel, i

We've stayed here before and never had a problem. We checked in on Friday and were told that there were hockey teams in the hotel and to let the front desk know 24h/day if there were issues. Well. Friday night security was on point and while the young kids ran up and down the

This is a normal courtyard hotel, but it's location is what makes it worth the stay. Rooms are a little dated, they need to be renovated, but they are clean and well looked after. Staff were friendly and helpful. Lots of parking outside and downstairs. Wifi was very good. The

I never write hotel reviews but felt I had to write one about this hotel because it so far exceeded my expectations. From before my husband and I arrived, the hotel staff were helpful when we called ahead with a few clarifying questions about check in. They saved us from having

Hi lor703! If you are looking for a place with great live music there's no place better than Rainbow Bistro at 76 Murray St. (at the corner of Murray and Parent St.). As for shopping and crafts the Byward Market for which our neighborhood is named is a great choice! The building itself is located at 55 Byward Market Square, one block west of our hotel. The independently owned stalls and shops have tons of really interesting merchandise and artisan goods. If you have any other questions please feel free to ask! Regards, Colin McCulloch

"Avoid room 126 like the plague!"
"The third and fourth floors would likely be a bit quieter."
"Considering this is a business district of the city, it was mostly quiet."
"North side rooms are somewhat less noisy from weekend bar traffic."
"inner courtyard facing rooms quieter than street facing."
