1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Closed - right before Canada Day Long Weekend!!!!
Brutal! We booked a few suites here as we had a lot of family coming into town for the big Canada day long weekend. We wanted the suites to have bedrooms and extra bathrooms, along with a kitchen and dinning room and family room. I called the hotel to confirm the rooms only to be told that they were closed. They didn't even call us to tell us. We had to scramble to find rooms - FOR CANADA DAY IN THE NATION'S CAPITAL!!!! In the end, our families were spread out around Ottawa as we were unable to find rooms for all of us at the same hotel. As a result, our family reunion ended up being a flop. Minto doesn't care, but I would love for them to realize that this was a very poorly handled situation.They ruined an event that had been planned for a very long time!

4/5 Good
