We stayed here in March '12, and were pleased with what we received for our two nights. The staff were very pleasant, helpful, and available for any questions/requests. It's not a high-end fancy hotel, but is very clean and fairly new. I found it to be very quiet, considering there were dozens of adult hockey players partying there for the duration of our trip. Not sure if it's the design, but we were on the same floor as the party goers and heard very little at night.
The "suite" room was a nice size, with a seperate living area with couch and half-size fridge, microwave, etc. There were 2 large TVs in the suite. The bedroom did not have a door seperating it from the living area (which I found a bit strange). Everything was clean and very comfortable. It was a good basic room, nothing fancy, but had what we needed.
The hotel has a pool, (which we did not use) but it looked nice. No hot tub or slide, but a comfortable setting in which to sit and watch the kids. Strangely enough, there was not one kid in the hotel that we saw while there. Could be the timing, where it was mid-week.
The breakfast was good, with lots of choices to choose from. Closes kind of early at 9:30, but we were able to bring a plate upstairs at last minute.
The location of this hotel is very good. Easy to find, just off the ramp from highway coming from Ottawa. It's about a 15-20 minute drive from Ottawa in non-peak traffic times. There is a great shopping area just a 3-minute drive from this hotel, which features the new kind of "power shopping" (all outdoor access) with several chain restaurants. Note that my rating for restaurant is on what is nearby, as there is no restaurant onsite.
This is the closest hotel to the Scotiabank Center, where we ventured for the Senators hockey game and Van Halen concert. Having said that, it's a lot further than it looks. We walked both times, and it's a good 15-20 minute walk. Nice when it's warm. but wouldn't be on a cold or rainy day. It cost $6.30 by cab to go one way.
Overall, I was happy with this hotel, and would stay here again. Not a cheap place though, as our room was $180 per night.
