First check-in was really slow, bed was too hard, toilets were too short and small for tall people. Only things that was nice was the shampoo, hand wash and in the Trio Bar drinks were great and waitress was very nice. Underground parking wasn’t great. Was disappointed.

Temperature in the room could not be adjusted, was 23c, we asked to be moved, the next room was the same 23c could not be adjusted and it was handicap room so no shower stall. My daughter stayed at this location last month had the same problem with the thermostat. Staff did not charge parking to compensate, which was great. The real problem they charged $245.00 per night plus taxes, that was not the price quoted through Expedia.

Novotel has always been a staple for my visits to Ottawa as I love the location (across from Rideau Centre, 5 mins from Bymark Market and 15 min walk to Parliament). This time there was overcrowding in the lobby and on the 9th floor where my room was. Guest were leaving bags of garbage in the hallway constantly and they would be left there from the afternoon until the next day. Also there didn't seem to be staff monitoring the hotel on a constant basis, just saw 1 person at front desk.
