Friendly and competent staffs. What could be improved is mentioning that although breakfast is provided, there the fee/ charge for it. A clarification of the paid parking, ei price would also be good. Other than that- amazing stay.

The hotel was clean and staff generally helpful. Hotel was value-for-money. Location was also great since it’s near the train station. Only downside would be that it might get a little dangerous at night since it is located at downtown.

Michelle T. Business - Confirmed reviews ALL
The bathroom cups had been used. There was a hair clip in a cup. The television did not work. The rented parking space owned by third party was unsafe structurally. The front desk staff were new and lacked experience . However they were friendly and the food beverage manager of the hotel restaurant was amazing! The front door was out of order and it was difficult for my mother with mobility issues to gain access. The lobby furniture was modern in fashion but the color (red) was very sun faded. I reserved online but the hotel would not recognize my government id discount said it could inly be applied by calling?

The room was clean and the hotel is well located. We were supposed to stay for 2 days in Ottawa, but cut our trip short. The area is full of homeless people, people doing drugs right out in the open. We did not feel comfortable staying another day, especially with our children there.

Farhan K. Couples - Confirmed reviews ALL
My partner and I throughly enjoyed our stay the stag during check in were extremely welcoming and our room was very clean and well organized. The only minor issues I noticed was that our bathroom door did not lock, the hot tub was temporary out of service and when we went for breakfast we were not made aware that we would have to pay for it and we were under the assumption that it was already included in the cost of the room. So for next time we are aware now! The breakfast was amazing the best one I have had so far in all my stays in other hotels so it’s definitely worth the money I paid.
Dear Farhan K., We very much appreciate your comments regarding your stay at the Novotel Ottawa City Centre. It is always a pleasure to receive positive feedback. I will share your comments with our team. I am sure that this feedback will serve as an encouragement to all of our staff as we strive to continuously improve the quality of our services.
