I have been to Ottawa for business many many times in the past decade. I usually stay at a larger hotel on the East side of the city, but decided to try the Albert House owing to price and wanted to do something different. I am glad I did.
The room was pleasantly appointed, the Internet access worked well and the breakfast cooked to order was just wonderful. It was also nice to have the Keurig machine in the common area so that hot beverages are always available.
I had to leave early on my departure day and mentioned this to one of the staff members. She quickly packed a small breakfast for me the night before my departure so that should have some food on my way to the airport. Very thoughtful (and the muffin was great).
A few things to keep in mind that have already been said by others. Parking can be a bit of a hassle. It is tight so you have to leave your keys in case car jockeying is needed. Not a problem, but keep it in mind. There are 3 floors of rooms that are only accessible via stairs. If you don't like to walk stairs or can't, don't stay at the Albert House. Even entry to the first floor requires that a few stairs be climbed. My room was on the top floor, so I got lots of exercise. I was OK with it so it was not a big deal for me. It certainly will not deter me from another visit.
