We had a great stay at the Novotel last weekend. We were offered a nicely renovated room with a good view, friendly hotel staff and location is walking distance to the market. We will absolutely stay here again!

Fun time

Bas Couples - 13/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Great hotel, very friendly staff. However, room was not serviced while we stayed 3 nights. That despite other Accor hotels I have stayed in, in the past months who do service guest rooms. When I called for new towels and coffee, housekeeping brought those item to my room within 5 minutes, which was great. I loved that the bar was open again, made the lobby lively. Amanities like the pool were open too, by appointment only, but the staff immidiately informed me which timeslots were available. All in all a great hotel to spend time when in Ottawa.

Well located

Asked for my room to cleaned and nobody did. Asked for clean towels and I was told to come get it from the lobby. Very poor service.

Siobhan Families - 13/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Hotel was clean, staff very friendly and welcoming. Restaurant gave great service, food ans drinks. Room was clean, well equipped. The beds were not comfortable; felt like sleeping on a hard surface. Both of us woke up with back pain. Had we been asked at checkout how our stay was, we would have said. Location is spot on, walking distance to everything. Parking is a bit of an issue if you have an electric vehicle as you have to park across the street and are charged one for parking and two for charging your vehicle. Based on the uncomfortable sleep we has, unfortunately we won't return. Which is unfortunate as it is a nice hotel and you can't beat the location.

Great hotel

Imi H. Families - 13/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

There is a confusion about my payment. I used my 8000 points and I was supposed to pay 147 $ extra for the two rooms. I added one parking but I ended up with 247 $ on my credit card. There must be something wrong. I would appreciate if you could check that, please.

Great location!

Susan T. Families - 13/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Unfortunately 2 out of 3 nights I had to call the front desk and ask them to deal with our neighbours. My girls and I were up from 2:30-4:30 am. The last night I had to drive back to windsor. Leaving at 630 am. Having said that the lady at the front desk was very kind and compassionate. The place was clean and a great location. My husband and I visit our daughter in Ottawa and have stayed at other hotels. I would love for my husband to come back with me and stay at your hotel. Hopefully we get quieter neighbours!

Location suited our needs

The room and bathroom were really good. The bed size could have been slightly bigger, don’t think it was a queen bed.

Krisadd77 26/08/2021 TripAdvisor review

We stayed at Novotel Ottawa Aug 20-23. We had 2 rooms booked for us and 2 older kids. Parking our truck in the under ground hotel parking was challenging. There were not many spaces we could fit our Ford F-150 and we luckily found the last spot big enough. Our rooms were directly across form the ice machine and our first night sleep was very bad as the ice machine was used constantly until 1am. Traffic noise was very bad in this room too. We asked to be moved and they did find us 2 new rooms away from ice machines and seemed to be much quieter side for traffic noise. Much better the following 2 nights. The rooms were clean and updated but no fans in bathrooms and not enough towels. Restaurant was good/average typical breakfast buffet. The location was fantastic for walking everywhere. The pool was fully booked for our first day at check in but we booked 2 time slots for the next 2 days. Overall our stay was good/average. We probably wouldn’t stay there again mostly because of the parking issue with our vehicle.

Wonderful location and beautiful room

We came for a girls weekend and was pleasantly surprised. The room was great, location was excellent, right by The Byward Market and shopping. Sights all walkable from location. Will definitely be back. Great job with all the Covid protocols, felt very safe.
