We stayed on the fifth floor for three nights with a conference. We were around the corner from the elevator. I feared it'd be loud, but it was not. The room is clean. Shower with good water pressure, except it must heat on demand as the heat would fluctuate and be too hot at times. The bed was comfortable, as well as pillows and climate… Read more
We stayed on the fifth floor for three nights with a conference. We were around the corner from the elevator. I feared it'd be loud, but it was not. The room is clean. Shower with good water pressure, except it must heat on demand as the heat would fluctuate and be too hot at times. The bed was comfortable, as well as pillows and climate control. The view was of parking garage. My mom and daughter's view was a parking area with dumpster where they saw a man steal from a car one morning. (We reported it.) Otherwise, the area is safe, and loved this capitol city!! Walked to many things from here. The pool and exercise room and patio are quite the maze to get to and from my understanding, shared with a hotel on the backside. Unique arrangement, but enjoyed the patio on a sunny day and the fitness room was well lit and supplied and used, but not over-crowded. Didn't use the pool, although, it looked fine. Just a bit claustrophobic due to weird entrance with stairs and maze to get to. The staff everywhere were exceptional: housekeeping, front desk, restaurant. Food was delicious the one day we had breakfast down stairs. Enjoyed our stay here and the city! Close to mall/shopping should you need anything! But room needs drawers to store things! Read less

The location of this hotel is great, within walking distance of many sightseeing locations. The hotel room itself is very small. We stayed in a 'superior double,' and it felt like I was bumping into furniture when walking anywhere in the room. On the plus side, the lobby bar is quite nice.

I stayed at this hotel while attending Ottawa for an exam. The Novotel Ottawa is in an excellent location. The house keeping staff are excellent and very friendly. The room was clean and functional. I ate in the restaurant once and had an Elk burger which was great.

Novotel is close to the tourist attractions in Ottawa. It is just a short walk away to the Parliament Building and the Byward Market. However, the hotel needs to consider the number of booked people in the room on the number of toiletries that they provide. There were 3 adults and 1 child in our booking but they only gave us 1 small tube of body wash, shampoo and lotion. If you used their swimming pool then the toiletries are not enough. We were glad we brought extra ones. Read less
