We recently stayed at the Hotel Indigo for a weekend. We reserved a room through OttawaTourism.com. We requested a room on an upper floor, a non smoking, non pet, quiet room. All of these requests were fulfilled. The lady at check-in was very pleasant and efficient.
We went to our room on the sixth floor and were satisfied with the room. The hotel is newer and is appropriately furnished. We then went to park the car. You actually park under the adjacent Marriott Hotel. The parking is very limited and very tight. Be advised that although the Hotel Indigo provides escalators to go up to or down from the lobby, the Marriott does not. There is a staircase that must be traversed, a possible issue for elderly visitors or others with any mobility issues. As stated, the parking is very tight, lots of back and forth maneuvering is necessary.
During our stay we made inquiries of the front desk staff regarding area attractions, restaurants, etc and they were always very friendly and helpful.
The shampoo, etc... products provided in the room were high end. The bed was comfortable, the pillows were just so-so. We both noticed that after walking barefoot in the room our feet were very dirty. This hotel is in a city and the rooms have windows that open. Therefore the wood floors in the guest rooms really need to be damp mopped, daily.
This hotel is two or three blocks from Sparks street, the pedestrian only street. Another block or so to the Capital buildings. A bit of a walk to most restaurants.
IHG is the owner of many hotels in North American and controls the PriorityClub. Overall our experience with IHG and their properties has been very positive.
We enjoyed our stay and would recommend this hotel.
