We greatly enjoyed our trip to Ottawa and much of that was due to the great location of the hotel. Walking distance from popular spots such as Parliament Hill, the Byward Market and Rideau Center. The staff was excellent and the room was very clean. Great hot breakfast every morning and complimentary dinners Tues and Wed were a pleasant surprise....

Hi Darren T, Wow!! Thanks for the great comments. Glad you were able to enjoy all our facilities. It is unfortunate that the pool is a bit cloudy and we did have a lot of people in the pool over the weekend. While the chemistry of the water is good , we would close the pool otherwise.

The service was friendly and courteous, the room was clean and quiet, and they offer a decent breakfast for guests each morning, although a few more healthy choices would be nice. The pool needs better maintenance. Excellent location.

The Residence Inn is a great place to stay for anyone visiting Ottawa. It is only short walk from Parliament Hill and the other downtown attractions. I believe that all the rooms have cooking facilities so it is not necessary to eat your meals in the many restaurants nearby. The hotel provides guests with a proper breakfast which serves as...
