“Dated But Nice”
Reviewed 22 August 2014

The suite worked very well for five adults. With the kitchenette and laundry service, it is definitely a place that would work well for a long-term stay. The hotel is quite nice, and the restaurant serves a good breakfast at reasonable prices. It's in a great location for walking distances to a lot of interesting things in Ottawa. The staff was friendly and helpful. The only knock against the hotel is that it is starting to show signs of age. Upgrades would easily make this a 5-star review.

Room Tip: It is nearly impossible to avoid scraping the underside of a vehicle when entering or exiting the pa...

My wife and I just spent three nights at this hotel in one of their one bedroom suites. Check in and out was efficient and the people at the front desk are always there to assist you.

Our suite was on the Cooper side of the street or north side of the building thus facing the street...there is no normal street noise that one can hear but early in the mornings there was always a garbage dump truck serving the street that made it noisy.

I would suggest a room and or suite on the south side of the building where its really quiet.

The location, the condition of the hotel and our room was very good according us good value for this type of hotel with a kitchenette,dinete and living area with a separate bedroom....you can't beat the location being close to the parliament buildings, the canal, the market and restaurants on Elgin Street.

I certainly recommend this hotel for a nice stay in downtown Ottawa.

Room Tip: Get a room on the south side of the building.

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights one week ago. We booked 2 bedroom unit and were happy with the choice. The unit was on the 5th floor, very clean, quiet and comfortable. Clean carpet, clean kitchen, bathroom in very good conditions. Indoor pool and children's playroom were perfect for our two children under five. The restaurant in the lobby was very tasty (a bit expensive though). It was very cold in Ottawa during our stay, so we used heating, which was in both bedrooms. Will be coming back!

We stayed at the Cartier Place Suite Hotel with our family of 4 (1 bedroom: 2 double beds) during the long weekend in August 2014. It has a perfect location - walking distance to all the tourist attractions in downtown Ottawa. The kitchen is great for preparing your own food, & a grocery store is only 3 blocks away. The kids loved the swimming pool & hot tub. The free wifi was also a bonus. The staff was friendly and helpful. The suite was clean, and perfect for what we needed. Thank you Cartier Place Suite Hotel!

We stayed here for three nights while my husband worked in Ottawa.
It was great since we didn't have a car and we have three young children.
We walked to Parliament and the Byward market, as well as the Rideau Centre.
The pool was nice with the outdoor patio, and the kids even played at the mini playground area.

Rooms were spacious, but the bathroom needed some updating, especially the shower.

The kitchen needed a few more dishes since there were five of us in the room.

Loved this place. We stayed in a 2 bedroom ( 1 queen , 2 twins), 1 bathroom suite. The interior is a little dated, but everything is clean and working. The kitchen has all the equipment to cook your own meals, a diningroom table and a sitting corner with a pull out couch . There's a balcony too with additional seating. Laundry rooms and ice are situated on alternating floors. The swimming pool is on the ground floor and of a good size. There's even a playground ! There are plenty of great and affordable restaurants and pubs near the hotel. Groceries are within easy walking distance too. Parking is under the hotel, and expensive like every other place. And Parliament Hill is a 10 minute walk.
What I loved best was the Staff. Very service orientated . Pick up the phone within one ring. I had an issue with a washing machine: called and 2 minutes later a guy came to look at it!(fixed in 1 minute!)
Would definitely come back to stay again.

We had a one bedroom suite with well equipped kitchen. Overall the room and kitchen were clean but did have a stronger than usual smell. We found a used needle on the balcony!
The location was great for walking to Parliament buildings and some museums. Front desk did not have a lot of knowledge about events going on in the city and the housekeeping was not cooperative when I asked them to come back in the afternoon.
We stayed there because of an Ottawa tourism promotion that offered 3 nights for the price of 2. It was a good value for the location and the kitchen helped keep the price of meals down for a family. Not sure if I would stay there again.
