at check in they want $150 per night for incidental deposit, that's way too much. Thankfully the lady at the desk took it down to just one night so our preauth was reasonable. The bathrooms counter space is tiny, no microwave, but super comfy beds, clean, modern and great location, great lobby nice bar with good happy hour food and drinks.

Great atmosphere, nice people, valet was great. If you're staying here spend the $35 and use the valet. Other parking options aren't great. If you can afford a room here you can afford the valet. Dinner options the day I was staying was not feasible for a regular dinner. A hotel that is for some but not for all. Overall it was exactly as advertised. Very clean, well kept, stylish. 8.5/10

We had a wonderful stay at the Metcalfe. Everything from the comfort of the Jr. Suite to the stylish atrium lobby, to the warm conscientious staff and the hotel's great French bistro Cocotte (where we had many meals) was top notch. We will definitely be staying here again when we return to Ottawa!
