The hotel was very nice and in a beautiful location. It is not quite downtown but only a 10-15 minute walk. You could walk down Elgin Street or along the canal to get to the market, Rideau Center, or the Parliament buildings. Many restaurants in the nearby area to choose from.
The room and information was ready prior to arrival and we received our package. Check in was extremely quick and efficient.
The room was big and had a beautiful view of the city with floor to ceiling windows. The rooms were clean and spacious. There was an issue with the cable company and not all channels were available and we were not notified of this until arrival. That being said, it did not affect our stay.
Elevators were slow as they were under construction but it wasn't overly busy and did not affect us in any way but I can see it being an issue on a very busy weekend. Parking was also under construction but we just parked across the street at no inconvenience to us but the weather was nice.
The staff were friendly. We are looking forward to returning to this hotel.
