I booked Best Western for 1 night. Having never been to Ottawa before I wasn't too sure about location and proximity to everything.
The hotel it self was a $15 taxi ride from the Via rail train station. It was clean, the staff were nice, we were able to check in 3 hours before the check in time. The hotel had free wifi and also buffet breakfast. The Breakfast included, cereals, french toast, bagels, toast, muffins, eggs, sausage patties, coffee and juices, fruit salad and yogurts.
The room had two double beds, clean, had a bar fridge, sink, coffee machine and microwave.
Location wise, you can walk to parliament hill in about 30minutes, I would walk up Elgin (east one block of O'connor) as there is more to see. Also, Bank st (one block west of O'connor) has a bus going straight up or down. Bus fair is $3.40 a ticket - use exact change as non is given back.
Heading east It is a 20minute walk to the canal, which is amazing. Heading South 20-30min on bank st is some antique shops and also a big stadium (not yet finished in 2014) and also another section of the Canal - however the bus goes here too.
I really liked this hotel and the proximity to a variety of area's.More
