Reviewed yesterday NEW

There always seems to be a Holiday Inn where you need one to be. Makes it easy to see why being a IHG club member can pay off. Clean room, lots of plugs and lamps, and a super handy card that serves as a TV channel guide. Beats scrolling to find what you want.

This Holiday Inn Express was very clean and well kept. The location and accessibility to the Ottawa airport is excellent and there are several good restaraunts within walking distance from the hotel. Rooms are very clean and comfortable with more than enough room.

The hotel was spotless, and quiet. The service was excellent. The breakfast was outstanding...actually a full breakfast with choices of egg, bacon, sausage, yoghurt,cereal, bagels etc. Could not have asked for anything better. The location of the hotel was excellent for us to get downtown easily and to also get to the church where the wedding was held.

Nice hotel, but received amazing, thoughtful service from Baldeep. He actually offered to drive us to a store to get necessities as we had no luggage, due to weather and flight cancellations etc. Conveniently located very near Ottawa airport. Great free breakfast.

We overnighted here when we had to catch an early morning flight to the airport. The staff were very nice, even made us up a breakfast bag when we had to leave the hotel at 0445 since the breakfast room would not be open. Good location, near to the Royal Oak Pub, Lone Star Texas Grill, etc. My only complaint...
