Stayed here one night for a business meeting in January. I was upgraded to a suite, which was a nice plus. The room seemed like it could use some refurbishing though. Staff was decent, although not particularly outstanding. Facilities were decent. Food was fine, although relatively boring. In all, a decent place to stay. Just don't expect any frills or...

I booked a room through my travel agent and travelled all day to get to this Hotel. When I arrived at 6:20pm I was notified that my room was given away at 6pm because my room was not guaranteed by a credit card (a mistake by my travel agent). There was a note on my file that my flight was...

I stayed at the Holiday Inn and Suites in Ottawa for two days in Nov 2011. The hotel is ok but very expensive for what it is. The staff is very good and helpful. My room was very dark, the lighting made it hard to work and felt gloomy. The bed and pillows were not good at all compared to...

You know, only a few years ago, I would have given this hotel 4 stars. Then, every other Holiday Inn in North America (it seems) realized that it was time to upgrade, renovate, hire a designer from Ikea, and make thier rooms cool. Or, switch brands, like Indigo, and take that route to cool-dom. Not so this place. There is...

During out 4-day stay, the staff from doorperson, front desk, restaurant, and housekeeping was excellent. The price was reasonable for what you get in the nation's capital. The location places you within 15-25 minutes walking distance of many points of interest and major bus routes (just ask for help at the hotel). We discovered a section from Cooper St. to...

One word : average. We booked the hotel trusting the Holiday Inn name and based on previous experiences with the Holiday Inn. However, although the hotel is centrally located, it is the overall experience during the stay that was disappointing. The service is just about average and honestly, I expected much better. When it comes to rooms, although spacious, there's...

I stayed here for several nights for a business meeting. Its right beside the Rideau canal, but several streets away from the downtown core. The rooms were modern and in very good shape. When I booked there were few rooms left so I had to take a 1 bedroom suite. It was huge with a small dining area, full kitchen,...

I stayed here for one night on business. The hotel is just a few minutes away from parliment hill and other downtown attractions, and walkable to shops and restaurants. The room was nice and quiet, and I particularly appreciated the heated floor in the bathroom. Free wifi was included, which is a must for me when travelling business. The bed...

Great location close to parliament hill and downtown but on a quiet street. We had a really spacious sweet. Service could have been better. Found the restaurant staff rather brisk. We were also put in a room that was not pet friendly despite our specific request. Front desk said they would sort it out and call us back but they...

I was booked into this hotel by my association to attend meetings. The room was clean and the bed quite comfortable. Lighting in the room could have been better and only one bedside lamp was working.
