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.

Stayed recently on business and really like the rooms. Housekeeping was exceptional and the staff in the restaurant so friendly. The breakfast is included in the rate and definitely a superior offering. I will be back for sure. Thank you Le Germain!!!!

I prefer smaller boutique-style hotels over large chains. One of my favourite hotel lines is Le Germain. The Ottawa hotel is not quite as sexy as the two Toronto hotels but the room and the service are every bit as good. I stayed three nights as a solo female traveler and wouldn’t hesitate to return.

The location is very central, the rooms are large, comfortable and well equipped with everything I needed. Always welcoming. They have my loyalty. Thanks! Read less

We stayed here as part a 2 month tour of Canada, and to find a better hotel will be difficult to do. The staff were all excellent, most helpful, pleasant and kind. The room was good and the breakfast was fine. Should we return to Ottawa we would definitely stay there again. Derek & Kathy.

I travel to Ottawa for business mostly and stay for 4-5 days at a time. Rooms are amazing, modern and the beds are comfy. There are enough plugs and usb’s to satisfy all my business and personal needs. I have never had a problem falling asleep.

I travel to Ottawa for business mostly and stay for 4-5 days at a time. Rooms are amazing, modern and the beds are comfy. There are enough plugs and usb’s to satisfy all my business and personal needs. I have never had a problem falling asleep. My only issues with the rooms is I had no drawers for clothes and given I stay for week stints it would be nice. Closet has ample hangers and a shelf. The lighting is also a bit tricky to control but I once you get the hang of it it’s okay. Staff is amazing! This is where they shine. The breakfast staff, concierge, front desk and bell staff all go out of their way to make your requests happen and are genuinely there to help. It’s a pleasure to stay here with them. Breakfast is great. The same spread was provided on this trip and I remember more variety in the past but honestly the variety satisfied all my needs. The morning latte and espressos were amazing and the wait staff in the area attentive and accommodating. This is my first choice when staying in Ottawa. Read less

Chose Le Germain for our weekend getaway to Ottawa and it did not disappoint. The service from all of the staff was excellent. Every single person we had an interaction with from the front desk to the housekeeping staff to the staff at Norca, all treated us very well and seemed sincere in their desire to attend to all of our needs. The room was very clean and very modern plus the bed was very comfortable. Location is pretty good as it is a short walking distance from the main downtown core and the Byward Market. Loved it and would go back again to Le Germain Ottawa for sure plus the included buffet breakfast was pretty good too... especially the homemade ketchup!! Read less
