Loved the clean modern and comfortable hotel located in the heart of Ottawa. We enjoyed visiting the local sites, especially the parliament buidings. It is close to the nice restaurants that we dined at so that we could leave our car parked in the building.

My first stay at the Novotel on Nicholas Street. I'll be back! Very good lodging for a reasonable price. The room was modest in size but modern and well-equipped. Fridge, coffee maker, bathroom/shower were all great. Big screen tv. Friend and I had a dinner in the Albion Rooms - it was outstanding. Fresh, tasty dishes and good service.

The location of this hotel is amazing for the price - couldn’t be more perfect for our visit because we spent most of our time downtown. When we come back to Ottawa - we are coming back to Novotel!

A very average hotel Pros- Friendly staff Good location Room temperature easy to adjust Cons- Hallways need updating as carpet it not fitted well and dangerous Albion rooms and room service menu was very minimal Power outlet next to the bed did not work Listed as a superior room with a sofa bed yet all it had were 2 uncomfortable chairs TV position around the side of a wall making it difficult to watch and the TV guide was not working Parking was difficult to find and the Parking pass did not work No room refresh because of Covid so towels were damp, I understand that I could have asked for replacements but I shouldn't have to No hair conditioner available Just 1 coffee so had to ask for more (it tasted terrible) Even though I checked in online it took a long time at reception to get the key and had to go through the usual to check in anyway Read less

Did a quick getaway within the province during the COVID 19 pandemic. Hotel is actually fairly full (by the amount of cars parked in the garage), but very good social distance measures and prep work that gave the feeling to a lot of space.
