After a small glitch booking online, my stay at this property was amazing. The front desk staffer who helped me (I believe his name was Mark or Chris) went above and beyond. He really seemed to care about my stay. As I was only in for one night, he upgraded my room at no cost. I was also leaving very,...

As always, the Holiday Inn chain offered me a great stay. The room was clean and comfortable. The pool and hot tub were lovely. The staff were all very friendly and kind. It was also very quiet. A great weekend away in Ottawa. We'll be back!

We intended to stay in Ottawa but had no hotel destination in mind (or reservations made). When we arrived in the city the roads were getting slippery due to snow so we had our GPS tell us how to find the nearest hotels. Because of our wonderful stay at a Holiday Inn Express a few days before in Fredericton, we...

Stayed here for business for only one night. It was close to both airport and work. Location isn't close to anything that interesting. I wouldn't stay here longer than one or two nights. You'd need a car to get anywhere. There were a few food options close by, but the closest was a Lone Star Texas Grill recommended by the...

My expectations were simple - it was a place for our small family of 3 to spend 2 nights while visiting friends in Ottawa. We didn't want to spend a lot so booked a Holiday Inn Express. We were extremely surprised with our stay - room, beds, bathroom exceeded our expectations (nice sheets, tons of pillows, fridge, microwave, all new…)...

We choose this hotel as it was near family we where visiting for Christmas. Hotel was very clean and staff was very friendly and accomodating. We choose a king suite and it was nice and big with a very comfortable bed & separate sitting area. Even though our room faced the front of the hotel it was very quiet. We...

Two other colleagues and I needed to be in the area week of December 15th 2014.
