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 really enjoyed my stay at this new Ottawa hotel. It's got a great location very close to the Rideau centre and University of Ottawa. My room was very deluxe with lots of nice extras such as big screen TV, Nespresso coffee machine, deluxe linen, etc. The local neighbourhood is a bit dodgy with the homeless men's shelter across the street but… Read more

If the price is right then I will stay again. Read less

My wife and I visited for a conference at Le Germain. We enjoyed every aspect of the hotel- location, service, room, amenities and restaurant. Ottawa is a very walk-able city and this hotel puts one right in the middle of it. We walked on separate occasions to the By Ward Market, the National Gallery of Art and Parliament Hill. The staff could not have been more helpful and kind. We ate breakfast two mornings and dinner one night. The food was delicious and service prompt. The architecture including interior design is European for sure. We enjoyed figuring out the way things worked including the lights which were activated by inserting the room key into a holding pod near the door. Every light in the room then automatically turned on which could then be dimmed individually at the many switches conveniently spaced. Early one morning, I got up to use the restroom and was pleased when the light turned on via motion sensor. The room was spacious by American standards and everything sleek and brand new. I heartily endorse Le Germain for your next visit to Ottawa Read less

This hotel is fabulous! Nice tasteful design in the rooms ending in “05”. Most comfortable bed and pillows ever. Interesting placement of the shower in the middle of the room. I didn’t find the staff overly friendly on check-in, but the woman at the bar was the best! You can close all the black-out blinds with one button. Would definitely stay… Read more
