Street constructions made it very hard at best to walk around and driving around. Not their fault.

Awesome hotel!

We love staying at this hotel. Kitchenette & your own balcony for an awesome price! The bed is beyond comfortable, with super comfy pillows & the duvet is snuggly. Best sleep ever. The continental breakfast offers a wide variety of hot/cold items. Looking forward to our next visit in 3 mths! Best part about going to Ottawa besides shopping!! And to think if it didnt take over 2 yrs to get into the dermatologist in Suds we never would have found this gem & the best dermatologist who makes time to see my hubby on a regular basis.

The Perfect $tay

If you are looking for value and safety, you will find it here. There is secure underground parking and entryways. In addition, some rooms have a full kitchen so you can make your own meals during your stay in Ottawa to save some $$$. It is within walking distance to everything and is in a quieter sector of the city, so night noise is minimal. The staff was friendly and always willing to help with anything we asked about! It was a really a beautiful and safe hotel.

Service rapide, très courtois. L'établissement est en rénovation mais il y a très peu d'inconvénients pour la clientèle et le personnel fait tout son possible pour les réduire. Le service wi-fi est bon, le déjeuner inclus est varié et bon. Je suis retourné plusieurs fois à cet établissement et j'en demeure très content.
