Whenever I visit Ottawa I stay at the Hotel Indigo, largely because it is a relatively stylish hotel for a reasonable price. Ottawa really lacks in the department of nice boutique hotels so this might be the closest you can get for under 250$ a night.
Every time I've visited, the service was been really friendly and accommodating. That's perhaps the stand out of this hotel. The rooms are relatively modern, though some may call them a bit tacky (the photo wall as an example). The beds are comfortable. They used to have aromatherapy coming through the vents which I really didn't like however I believe they have stopped doing that. I had a really disappointing experience in terms of cleanliness; the last time I stayed, I found a half-empty pizza book hidden behind the drapes, which means that area wasn't cleaned. The staff was apologetic and provided us a coupon for two complimentary drinks at the bar. However, that is pretty bad for a hotel of that calibre. On the positive end, it did introduce us to the bar and the bartenders who were all very nice.
Location is great for all the main sites of Ottawa. All in all, would stay there again.
