This is our third stay at the Novotel. My husband and I spent 3 nights there in late August and couldn't have been happier with the experience. The hotel staff were professional, courteous and excellent to deal with. We got a great rate which turned out MUCH lower than other equivalent hotels in the area. We even turned up a few hours before the regular check-in due to our flight but were cheerfully accommodated and allowed to go to our room. The room was on the 8th floor and facing the backside of the Rideau Shopping Centre on Nicholas. Despite the construction going on directly in front of us our room remained quiet and peaceful - we were happily surprised!! The room amenities were exceptional: a extremely comfortable king sized bed, ample linens, a nice hot and spacious shower, and an in-room safe which we made use of. The Wi-Fi was free (bonus) and fast. We had the buffet breakfast every morning which offered extensive choices which were all tasty and served by friendly staff. You couldn't beat the hotel location. From the Novotel we walked to Byward Market, the Parliament buildings, Sparks Street and many other spots. We took the double decker bus trip as well as an Ottawa River cruise - all within a 20 minute walk of the hotel. I would highly recommend the Novotel for any trips to Ottawa. You won't regret it.
This is a lovely, grand old hotel in a perfect location. My room was spacious (and I think it was one of the cheapest they have) and comfortable, with modern amenities, and spotlessly clean. The staff were very friendly and helpful - very prompt in dealing with a couple of things I needed. Highly recommend!
The suite we had was lovely - there was only the 2 of us but we had a kitchen, lounge/dining, bedroom and 2 bathrooms (one with bath, the other a shower). I knocked a point off because there was a strange smell (?stale food / cooking) in the corridor but the room itself was fresh. The hotel also had laundry facilities. It is a bit away from the main touristy area (about 20 minute walk) but in our view worth it for what we got. Parking was at the hotel and easy to access.
