Unfamiliar with Ottawa, I was a bit concerned about the location and the property itself. In fact, both aspects were wonderful. Great business hotel.

The room itself was spacious and clean. Great, friendly staff. The underground parking lot is very narrow and not suitable for larger vehicles. Avoid parking spots 30 and 31. They are the dead end spots and are very difficult to navigate out of. The included breakfast has so much variety, including little grab bags of snacks and a water bottle. The hot food must sit a long time as it was always dried out but the rest of the options made up for it!
