Stayed here with the family for Winterlude. Close to the Rideau. Parking has In and Out privileges but needed to park outside as the underground parking was too small for our Caravan Minivan. Rooms were clean but we had a water leak on the floor around the Heating/Cooling unit. Would stay here again for the location. The Hotel feels more...

Very unique hotel! I travel to Ottawa for weeks at a time for work and I always try to stay here if possible. Large condo style rooms with full kitchens and all kinds of little extras. Free laundry on site. Also has a decent bar/restaurant on the ground floor and the neighbourhood is great.

Everything was clean, a lot of facilities ( first hotel in this price range with an oven+stove). Beautifull view from the balcony as well. We really loved it here. So as best...
