Nice place, located downtown, check in is easy, check out just as easy, the room was nice, typical hotel room, the bed was comfortable, pillows were a little to firm for me, but overall not a bad place to stay. There are a couple of nice places around the area to eat/party...nice pubs in the area. Ottawa is a nice... More

Hotel was decent. Seemed clean. Staff was nice enough. But, a few complaints - and each is bad enough that I can't recommend the hotel. 1. I got put in a 1st floor room. And 1st floor means ground level. And this means my room and bed is looking right out onto a very busy street with people walking by... More

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience at the Courtyard Marriott Ottawa with other users of trip advisor! Being located in such a busy area can sometimes lead to street noise, particularly on the weekends. An inside facing room is a great suggestion for those seeking a quieter environment.

We went here for 3 nights. They work hard to make sure their customers are happy and I love that they lock up their front doors at night to assist in security as it's in the Byward Market. Great location, cleans rooms and friendly staff! I will definitely be back in the spring :)

I have been there many times and I will keep returning. Marriott in general has not let me down and this is another example of great value and Feeling at home when I get there. Byway Market is also nearby so you can get great Food, as well as fast food right across the street.

We spent 4 nights in Ottawa, sightseeing, and chose this hotel for its near-perfect location.
