Location is great, Rooms are clean. Make sure they don’t put you in rooms along York Street though, or you’ll have a headache and won’t get any sleep. The music from the bar across the street is very loud and goes late, then the street cleaning happens around 4am, with leaf blowers and street sweeper.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms along York, including 125, 127, Etc..Loud thumping music all evening, followed by street cleaning overnight.

Thank you MrFrinkles for taking the time to post a review of your stay at the Courtyard Ottawa Downtown!

We'd like to apologize that your stay did not meet your expectations. As we are located in a busy downtown area with over 150 restaurants and bars, there can sometimes be noise caused by activity in the area, particularly on weekends. This activity can be hard to predict and beyond our control although we do make efforts to ensure that local establishments are respecting city by-laws and reporting issues as necessary. When reserving, you may request a room which faces our inner courtyard and it will provide a quieter environment. We will always do our best to accommodate these requests.

We hope you will allow us the opportunity to host your next trip to Ottawa and provide you with a better experience!

My husband and I stayed at this establishment and were pleasantly surprised by the over the top customer service! The staff were amazing and accommodating, doing their best to please some picky customers. The room was clean, comfortable and homey. The location of this hotel is in a prime location. It is in the heart of the Byward market which makes it convenient and a great resting spot for people who want to walk around, tour the historic city and go out on the town. Would definitely stay again!!!

This is a very nice hotel. Comfortable and clean. The bed was comfortable, the pillows very squishy and I think it had an excellent location. Plenty of shops around, there was an Italian market and a bookstore, bakeries etc. all within walking distance .
If you don't feel like going out, they have a little restaurant there as well.

Hotel is very conveniently located in the Byward Market. Room was immaculate. Bed was comfortable. Air conditioning worked. My room faced the courtyard and it was quiet at night. Staff are very helpful and pleasant. Would stay again. Keurig and coffee, decaf and tea pods in room. Free WIFI and a business centre.

Room Tip: courtyard facing rooms are quieter

Great location, close to ByWard Market area with so many restaurant choices. Within walking distance of most of the sites we wanted to see. We just left the car in the lot for three days and walked everywhere. And we are seniors! We stayed for three nights, the first two were relatively quiet, but the third night (weekend night) we had to deal with what we believe was motorcycle traffic in the middle of the night outside of our room. It went on for quite a while. But at the same time it is a hotel in a city so it should be expected to have some noise . Next time we will ask for a room that might be quieter. Otherwise it was a lovely stay, the front desk staff was exceptional at all times and the room was very well maintained each day. The only negative which is why I cannot give it a 5 was the persistent pan handler on the hotel property on the last day we stayed there.

Room Tip: ask for a room that isn't on the busy street!

Minniejan, we sincerely appreciate you taking the time to give us feedback about your stay at the Courtyard Marriott Ottawa!

As you mention, our location is ideal for parking your vehicle and walking to many of the attractions in downtown Ottawa! Our associates are always ready to answer questions, make recommendations and provide directions so don't hesitate to ask! As we are located in a unique area with an abundance of restaurants, shopping and bars, city noise can sometimes be heard from within our rooms therefore those preferring a quieter environment can request a room which faces our inner courtyard and we will always do our best to accommodate. We're very sorry to hear about the panhandler which put a damper on your stay. While this is an issue that afflicts much of the downtown core, we attempt to remain vigilant and prevent such activity from happening on our property. I will review this with our associates to ensure that we remaining proactive in preventing this activity from bothering our guests. We thank you for bringing it to our attention!

Again, we thank you for your comments as they are integral in helping us improve our service and we look forward to hosting your next trip to Ottawa!
