I stayed at this hotel in August 2014 while on a business trip to Ottawa. The location is right in the heart of downtown Ottawa near all the major attractions, shopping, restaurants, etc. Being a downtown hotel, parking is at a premium. I parked in a garage adjacent to the hotel on Queen Street for C$18 per night. After parking, I did not take my car out of the lot because everything I needed was within walking distance. The hotel is near Parliament, and it is about a mile from Byward Market. The area near the hotel has several promenades that are closed to traffic. It makes walking in these areas very easy.
The hotel itself is what one would expect from the Marriott. The hotel was clean and well appointed. I was given a large corner room, which had windows and outdoor balconies on two sides. My room had a Keurig coffee machine, a work desk, and wireless internet access for up to 5 devices. The hotel also had wireless internet access throughout the hotel. I used the concierge lounge for the complimentary water, coffee, and tea. The lounge was very comfortable and had great views of the city. I also used the exercise room, which was located next to the indoor pool. The pool looked nice, but I did not use it. The exercise room has a mix of cardio and weight machines. It is not large, but it is functional.
I enjoyed my stay at this hotel, and the rate was very good, especially considering that it is late summer. Tourists were everywhere in downtown Ottawa, and I would have expected to pay more due to a higher demand for rooms. The staff was friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend this hotel to others.
