This hotel is located in the heart of the Byward Market within easy walking distance of Parliament Hill and all downtown points of interest. Parking is available above and below ground for a fee. Prices are mid-range, typical of Courtyards. The hotel itself is a bit dated, but comfortable. The front desk staff and those in the Bistro were very...

Most reviews I've seen concerning this hotel makes mention of the excellent location. This is the primary reason why I selected it for my colleagues and I - it's definitely located centrally in the Byward Market, which is about as downtown as you can get. And, yes, there's plenty of road construction going on nearby, which makes navigating the surrounding...

First impression of hotel was awful!! The lady who signed us in had a very sour face and did not look happy at all to see us. Firstly we requested adjoining rooms weeks previous to arrival as we required 2 rooms. We're told they couldn't guarantee it. I asked it to be noted on our file and were disappointed when...

Not the prettiest of building, in a town with some great architecture but that was the only down side. Great location for walking to a diverse selection of restaurants and attractions. Staff were fantastic, always friendly and helped with everything we needed. Room was clean and comfortable not palatial but then neither was the price. I would definitely come back.

I recently spent 2 nights at this Marriott. It is a great location for restaurants and entertainment. However, the hotel is in need of updating in the guest areas (rooms and hallways). The parking is a bit expensive and there was a lot of road construction that made getting there interesting.

Lovely clean hotel, great location downtown Ottawa, excellent service. Had a great night's sleep on a comfy bed with equally comfy pillows. Great weight room and separate aerobic room. Nothing fancy just good old fashioned value for money. Not gold plated with low value fancy decor. Will return to this underrated 3 star hotel again. Picked by my "careful" wife...she...

There are advantages to staying downtown-lots of dining is just a walk away and all the city lights. But the price you pay is noisey traffic from the trucks and motorcycles racing around downtown. Bring a pair of earplugs. The hotel is dated but clean and the staff are exceptionally friendly.
