We stayed here for the Canada Day long weekend and I would say the hotel is overall ok.
Pros: The location is great as it is a few blocks from all attractions downtown Ottawa. Close to Parliament Hill and Byward Market locations as they are approx 10-15 min walk. The bathroom was nice - floors were heated. The beds were also pretty comfy.
Cons: The parking is under construction which they did apologize for but it was a pretty big inconvenience. You have to park at the city hall or find something else that works. Another con was the elevators are ridiculous - only 2 of 3 were operational and they are slow and outdated as I even heard many guests complaining about the same thing. If you want exercise then I guess it works for you because we opted for the stairs many times.
Overall did the trick for the weekend but wouldn't stay here again.
