Le Germain Hotel Ottawa

Ottawa, Canada

The hotel

The interiors of this urban sanctuary are high-design and high-spec, with bold yet beautiful décor, and gadget-stuffed guestrooms featuring free WiFi. Head outside and your surroundings are equally satisfying, with Ottawa’s must-visit checklist of sights in strolling distance, including ByWard Market, Parliament Hill, and Rideau Canal. And that also puts you near some of the city’s best shopping and dining spots. Taking its place in a complex that also houses a theatre, residences, an art gallery, and the hotel’s 24-hour gym, this boutique hotel now comes with its own dining venue too – the highly anticipated Norca Restaurant & Bar, where an already inspired Nordic menu is enhanced by farm-fresh regional ingredients, and where you can fill up on complimentary Continental breakfasts each morning.

I stayed at the hotel for a business trip and was extremely impressed with everything about the property and the service was exemplary. I had to ship packages back to the US which encountered a few difficulties and I have never experienced a staff that was more helpful - they went above and beyond.

Modern hotel well located within walking distance of everything but this hotel falls down on one or two points. Presented with 3 cards on checkin the lift one of which failed on 2 occasions, lighting in the room great once you've worked out how to navigate the switches, shower enclosure not private. Hanging space but no drawers. Breakfast adequate but not a lot of hot choices. Did not try the restaurant although the menu looked tempting if expensive. Plenty of good restaurants within walking distance. Read less

It was just a one-night quiet stay in the hotel and it was excellent. I had wanted to stay in this hotel since it opened recently and the wait was worth it.

I am a fan of Le Germain and this one did not disappoint. Well done! Read less

A good location, except the lack of good nearby restaurants was somewhat surprising. Good atmosphere, somewhat lacking in "professionalism" of staff. Very good breakfast included; Given the price the room size wasa bit disappointing.
