The first time we stayed in essentially a business suite. For the price, it was roomy and comfortable but definitely a business-y type of room. I was surprised our room had a bath tub. I love baths and can sometimes have a hard time finding a hotel that has rooms with them unless it's a luxury suite. The second time we stayed was for my birthday this past March. We rented the romantic suite which had a huuuuuge soaker tub. It was divine! The heating in our room wasn't working. After speaking to the front desk, they checked with a manager and the next morning told us how to hard reset the heating. It worked great after that! They offered to switch us to another room at first, but I couldn't give up the soaker tub so we just dealt with the temperature the first night...luckily their bedding was very warm. Overall I'm a fan of this hotel! It's very well priced and has everything you need. The staff are helpful and the rooms are clean enough. I'll definitely be back.

We went to dinner and come back to a cold room. Boosted the thermostat and nothing. Next morning ran the shower for 20 minutes to get warm water. Response from hotel was we should have called them. I’ll stay somewhere else next time.

Never will go back or recommend. Staff need proper training in dealing with customers. Did not feel that the place especially the ouch areas where cleaned properly like the elevators and the door handles. Staff unable to assist in giving proper answers to questions.

Very nice hotel - walking distance to all of the main sights and eats of Ottawa. Includes access to its own parking garage, which is nice. Room was big and clean, and staff was very kind and understanding. Covid-safe!
