Joyce K 27/02/2020 TripAdvisor review

We stayed 3 nights in an exec room. We changed the room after 1 night because it faced over the garbage pickup and delivery vehicles. The next room #415 faced the quiet inner courtyard. The room was good size and clean. Bed and duvet comfy. We made coffee with the coffeemaker. Lots of tv channels. Good water pressure in the shower. Parking is underground. Hotel is across from a major mall and in walking distance to Byward market, Parliament buildings, National Art gallery. The room rate a bit pricey. We didnt do breakfast. We ate out although the 2 hotel restaurants looked good. We would book again.

Friendly staff, outstanding breakfast, convenient location

KeithGUK 24/02/2020 TripAdvisor review

We stayed here for a week as a family holiday starting with Winterlude. We took in ice skating on the Rideau Canal, and outside Ottawa City Hall for which the location was perfect. It is opposite the Rideau Centre, which has an excellent food court - although it shuts at 6pm. The highlight of our stay was the breakfast. The breakfast manager from Sunday to Thursday was exceptionally welcoming. The chef - who did the best pancakes ever - was really accommodating and helpful to all of us. Particularly with our 10-year old daughter. He also did great omelettes with ingredients that you pick out yourself. The French pastries - apparently shipped from France - have that genuine taste and texture. I know this - having spend a lot of time in France. It is fair to say that the Novotel Ottawa delivered one of the nicest breakfast experiences I have ever had in a hotel. And I have had a lot of hotel breakfasts over the years. In general the staff at the Albion Rooms and the Reception were friendly and helpful. The Albion Rooms is a nice bar and restaurant. Their local beer selection is outstanding. The food was reasonably priced and nicely presented. The menu was probably a little "off-beat" for some tastes and there were only a couple of options for my vegetarian wife. Our room on the 9th floor was fine. Pretty standard for a Novotel. Just minor quibbles. It didn't have a hand towel rail. Our room was close to the elevator. The noise wasn't too intrusive, but it was there. Overall we enjoyed our stay at the Novotel Ottawa and I would definitely go back there again.

I did not need an accessible room but was assigned one. Aside from excessive guest noise from people waiting for the elevator, it was well appointed for people with mobility limitations. Gym facilities are good and richly provisioned.

Great hotel, great location, amazing restaurant!

excellent stay. Perfect location and check in staff was very helpful. Parking was a bit of a challenge but likely due mainly to it being family day weekend and Winterlude. Rooms were clean and comfortable

Front desk staff were friendly and helpful and room was clean. Was missing conditioner and cream in room and was really chilly when we arrived. Also went to the pool one day and there wasn’t towels. Checked several times over our hour and an half time playing but never arrived and a giant basket of dirty towels wasn’t picked up

Great stay

Robert Couples - 18/02/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

I was visiting Ottawa to attend a hockey game, although not located near the game in Kanata, it was close to dedicated ground transportation to the game. It is located close to the Rideau Centre and the By Town market. The parking is a bit pricey(28.00) and is rather cramped although did include in/out privileges. I was satisfied with my stay and would book again.

Well located, clean, helpful staff.

The only real issue with this hotel is that the door locks are battery operated and can die leaving you stranded until they are able to replace the battery
