Joyce K 31/03/2021 TripAdvisor review

We booked a 4 night stay and added 2 more nights. We were in a deluxe king room with a sofa and coffee table. It came with a mini-fridge and decent size cupboard: one side to hang the other side 4 shelve sections. The room was clean and spacious. The restaurant was closed due to covid. Parking was underground. Across the street is a large indoor mall. We brought back some take-out and ate in the room and watched tv. We walked around each day around the nearby Byward market and enjoyed coffee and cheesecake at a cafe or an all day breakfast at the King Eddy Pub. We visited the National Art Gallery, we walked across the Alexander Bridge over the Ottawa River and visited the Museum of Canadian History on the Quebec side, we walked in front of the parliament buildings. One day we walked from the hotel then westward passing in front of the parliament buildings we crossed the portage bridge to the Quebec side, then followed the foot trail eastward along the river to the Alexander bridge crossed it to the Byward market, had dinner and back to the hotel. There are some small islands in the Ottawa River with a lot of seagulls. There were a number of Canada goose on the grassy areas alongside the trail. Another day we went to the Canadian War museum. It was a great stay.

Always enjoy my visits to your Hotel!

My daughter and I booked a last minute weekend away to Ottawa so we could explore the University of Ottawa campus and surrounding area, including the Market. The hotel was conveniently located, reasonably priced and the staff was friendly.

The hotel was very quiet, not surprising in the pandemic context. The location is excellent and there is good on-site parking. As the hotel restaurant/coffee shop is closed, the availability of a "brown bag" breakfast was appreciated.

Dear Kevin, Many thanks for your wonderful feedback for The Novotel Ottawa and your kind words in relation to our hospitality and the service of our team. It gives us much happiness as it does you knowing that we are able to deliver upon all wishes. We always strive for excellence and we thank you for sharing your feedback.

Well located, clean, modern rooms

Customer review rating 4.0/5

Laura L. Couples - 15/03/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

I had a really great experience at Novotel Ottawa. the rooms were very clean, the bathroom was new and modern, and the staff were very nice and welcoming. the hotel is located right across from the Rideau Centre, which was great, and it's about a 5-10 minute walk to the Byward market. The only reason I am not giving a rating of 10 is that the bar was closed due to covid and there was no room service available either, but of course, I understand that it is due to covid restrictions. also, I asked for 2 bathrobes, but I did not receive them. Also, parking for 1 night was $28 which I thought was rather expensive, but otherwise, I very much enjoyed my stay.

Great location: super close to the Rideau Center and the Byward Market. Staff was very friendly. The hotel was clean and I felt safe. The room was beautiful. Bed was super comfortable and bathroom was very clean (compared to other places I've stayed in the past). Only "downside" was the TV... there wasn't any cable to have on in the background, and it wouldn't stay connected to my laptop when I was wirelessly sharing my screen. Did not see an HDMI cable. BUT I thought that a small hiccup in an overall great stay.

Below expectations

Customer review rating 2.0/5

Luzita K. Business - 07/03/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

The front desk was friendly. The room was below expectations: a toilet that wouldn’t stop running, and missing basic amenities (no body cream, no hairdryer). The walls are thin, so I could hear guests around me. I expected more, since Novotel is part of Accor. Disappointing.

Customer review rating 1.0/5

Yadwinder S. Families - 04/03/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Arrived for at the concierge desk and waited for 3 minutes before an individual came out from the back to check us in. Upon entering the room found various human hair all over the bedding and had to wait 1 hour while the bedding was changed. In these times having something like that was extremely concerning. We tried to not touch anything in the room after that point and checked out super early as we had zero confidence in the cleanliness of the hotel. Will never return there.

Enjoyed my time in the Novotel Ottawa Downtown, even though Covid-19 is still causing hardship. Would have been happier if food services had been available, but at least the desk staff were great, and provided fantastic help with information. I don't think I've seen this hotel as clean as it is, and kudos to the staff for ensuring that your guests are safe.
