We stayed two nights at this Hotel. The location is just across the Ottawa river from Ottawa and is within walking distance of Parliament Hill. The Alexandra bridge is about one block away from the Hotel and has a very nice wide pedestrian/ bike walkway on the bridge. Parking at the hotel is limited in front of the Hotel and they have parking down the street in an open area I had to park there the first night was not too comfortable leaving my car in this lot.
The staff at the hotel were most helpful regarding directions and local info. There are rental bicycles just down the block that can be be rented for a 24 hour period for $7.00 but you can use the bike for 30 minutes and put in into a rack at your destination. There are many racks around ottawa and the bikes lock into the racks so you would have a different bike each time. You can find out more on the BIXI website. We found using bixi a very inexpensive and convienent way to get around Ottawa. There is a Mcdonalds about 5 minutes walking distance from the hotel.
If i was in the Ottawa / Gatineau area again I would stay at this Best Western.More
