A charming modern full-service hotel set in the heart of downtown Ottawa, located just steps to the Byward Market and the Rideau Canal, a short walk to the Parliament and across the street from the Rideau Shopping Centre- the leading shopping destination in the city which holds one of the only Nordstrom stores in Canada. The Novotel Ottawa is perfectly situated across from the Shaw Centre (Ottawa Convention Centre) and the University of Ottawa is a 5-minute walk from the property. The trendy new Albion Rooms Restaurant at the Novotel has been recognized by the New York Daily News as “hypercool” and voted by UrbanSpoon as one of the top restaurants in the city. Buffet breakfast is composed of an extensive selection of regional and seasonal produce from the market. Our bartenders serve up craft Ontario beers; wines from small wineries and winemakers, classic cocktails and our house signature dishes deserve their own place at the table. From Canadian roots and Ottawa soil, Come experience true North hospitality with a hand-crafted story in our comfy yet glamorous interior or on the restaurant’s shaded patio.

Lost wallet and the front desk staff were incredibly helpful in finding it. Their honesty has earned a lifetime customer. Also the decor is beautiful, and the restaurants in the hotel were fantastic. 10/10!

My wife and I stayed here a few times with guests. A smaller hotel (which I like), modern decor, fresh, open and airy lobby, delicious buffet breakfast and comfortable cafe. The staff will do anything for you to assist or make your stay comfortable. Impeccably clean and shiny.

"A high floor is probably best for less traffic noise."
"the rooms on the ninth floor over looking Ottawa main town."
"Ask for higher floor, or for convenience sake get the 5th floor if gym and pool proximity are important."
"Quite rooms and no noise. It took me a while to figure out how to use the shower head, it had no handles and turn out to be a push button."
"Corner rooms with king beds have the best views!"
