This place was incredible! And the rates were very reasonable. (Not sure if that is typical or whether they lowered the prices because of construction.) Even though there is construction, the hotel is spotlessly clean. It is right on the edge of the airport but in 2 days/nights we never heard a single plane. Our standard 2-queen room was huge, and the bathroom was even bigger. Tons of counter space to spread out all our toiletries. Comfy beds with adjustable firmness controls and real duvets (not microfiber blankets). The air conditioner worked well and was very quiet. Common areas are very spacious, brightly lit and everything is tastefully decorated. The front lobby was gorgeous, and this is truly a Hilton that lives up to its name. Walk in the front door and there is infused ice water, self-serve coffee, decaf, tea, hot chocolate, a platter of cookies, bowls of mints, a fireplace and tons of comfortable seating. It is not at the heart of the city for sight-seeing, but it is right on the Airport Parkway and we were able to get downtown in 20 minutes. Front desk staff were very helpful, giving advice on where to find free parking downtown and things to see/do. Lots of restaurants fairly close (you need a car), and staff have maps that make finding things easy.
Now for a couple negatives (because nobody is perfect!): #1, the on-site restaurant. Service was quick & courteous, but for the quality of food (just average) it was a bit over-priced. Breakfast is available for an extra fee...it would be nice to have a standard continental breakfast included with all rooms. #2, the Wifi. It was not reliable. We kept losing connections. We contacted the front desk and they said they would notify the service provider. Not sure if the problem was related to the construction, or because we had 3 devices going at one time, or just a bad signal.
In spite of the glitches, we highly recommend this hotel! If we ever have the opportunity to visit Ottawa again, this is where we will stay. Loved it!
