Good location close to Byward Market
Novotel on Nicolas Street offers a great location close to Byward Market and is right next to Rideau Centre shopping mall. There is a lot of construction around the hotel but our room wasn't noisy at all. Some streets are closed off / under construction but that's nothing the hotel can control.
The rates for weekdays are a tad expensive for a smallish superior double room and a television I just could not get to work, but the beds were extremely comfortable and the bathroom was spacious. It was also very quiet in the halls.
WiFi is free. There is a pool and fitness centre that I didn't use.
The hotel has a restaurant (Albion Rooms) but $16.50 for the plated cold eggs and bacon is a bit much. If you have to eat in the hotel, go for the slightly more expensive cold buffet - still over-priced for what it is, though.
