This was my first stay in this hotel and I would definitely go back. The room was large and clean. The staff were all very friendly. The hotel is currently under construction. I saw a picture of what it will look like once done and it's really impressive. I had breakfast in their restaurant (Phi) and had one of the...

I found from the moment I checked in to the Indigo in downtown Ottawa the staff to be extremely polite and helpful. THE SENSE OF humour displayed by the person checking me in regarding the renovations was appropriate.

We enjoyed our stay at this clean hotel. The hotel is oddly designed where the atrium/lobby spans the entire 6 floors of the building so the majority of the rooms hear the noise from every level as the doors face into the atrium. I think there are some corner rooms which can be shielded by the noise. ask when you...

We really enjoyed our short stay at hotel indigo. Friendly and helpful staff at reception. The place is very comfortable and different from your typical hotel in that the place has character. Nice pool, hot tub and gym. For parking, pull up in front of the hotel to get your key first and then everything is very smooth. If you...

This is a boutique hotel in a very good location, just a block off Elgin street and close to a Starbucks, Sconewitch (excellent!), Nando's and a few other places. You are just a very short walk to the Parliament buildings or the Byward market. They are clearly trying to distinguish themselves, in terms of look and feel, from a generic...

We were spending a weekend in the Capitol, but the main reason for the trip was to drop our eldest off for the first year of the University of Ottawa. So it was a bitter sweet weekend....our first baby was all grown up and leaving the nest. We picked the Hotel Indigo as my wife has stayed there several times...

We visited Ottawa for the first time not really knowing where to stay to be able to walk to all the main tourist attractions. Hotel Indigo was perfectly situated to enable us to to explore the city on foot. As a bonus, it was a lovely hotel that served great food with genuinely friendly staff. Parking was on site too...

Our last stay at Hotel Indigo was over five years ago. We have a great experience, but live in the Ottawa area, so rarely need to stay in a local hotel. My parents are visiting for Christmas, so we decided to check into Hotel Indigo for two nights to be able to see a few local sites without having to...

The hotel is centrally located. The hospitality is excellent and has all the amenities that a traveler requires. There is a restaurant with home style cooking and quite reasonable with a varied selection. Try the hamburger with the soup of the day, it was delicious. The rooms are very comfortable and the beds are firm.

Great location and helpful staff. If you are arriving by car, check in first and then ask for directions to hotel garage. I tried to find it first and ended up driving around two times without success.
