We ended up at this hotel almost by default. It was the weekend of the Ottawa Marathon and we couldn't get anything downtown.
We were only in Ottawa for one night and wanted to hit the Byward Market, Parliament Hill and do a lot of walking by the Rideau Canal.
We didn't have a car, so we were concerned. But there was no reason to worry. We ended up with a fresh, clean, comfortable hotel with a bus stop less than 100 yards away.
The transit system is excellent. The bus came every 15 to 20 minutes and it only took about 20 minutes to get right downtown for $3.25. Convenient and cheap, a nice combination.
There's nothing flashy about the hotel and it's not big. The pool is tiny and the fitness area is a bit more than a closet. But enough to get you a decent workout and I imagine for parents to get the kids some time in the pool.
The hotel shuttle came very quickly to pick us up at the airport after we called at time of landing.
I did find the hotel expensive. But, again, we weren't in a great bargaining position because rooms were on short supply.
Overall, it was a very good one-night stand with the Hilton Inn Ottawa Airport.
