Extremely difficult to access the parking area, and very costly. Once our vehicle was parked, we felt more comfortable.

In general the hotel was fine but not really what I expected. The rooms where small and could use a little better cleaning.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ade246 A pleasing first stay at an Indigo
This was one of ten hotels my family stayed at during a 3.5 week tour of the Canadian east coast and New York . I have been a Platinum PCR member for a number of years and had built up over 500,000 points to use – this holiday was a great opportunity to use most of them. We arrived at the hotel for a two night qualifying stay- the car park was difficult to find and hard to negotiate a large SUV into first time but, nevertheless, fine once found/parked! A bit of a maze from the parking to the hotel (through the adjacent non-IHG hotel). Reception staff were excellent from the outset - when we had located the hotel and my wife ran in to find out where the parking was, they suggested we unload cases outside the main entrance before then parking. I always say that my welcome is the most important part of a stay at any hotel – if this is good then it really sets the mood for the rest of the stay. The mood was set! The room was ready early and a good size for the four of us. First time I had stayed at the Indigo brand and was keenly anticipating seeing what it was like – I was not disappointed: not bad at all. A great check-out experience by a very friendly member of staff, who treated me as a valued customer rather than just another check-out (nice to be asked a bit about your holiday plans and being wished a great remaining time). I would recommend this hotel.

The sink in the bathroom was cracked, we had difficulty flushing the toilet and the toilet was in a very cramped space.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by travellinman84 Hard on the outside, sweet on the inside!
My partner and I arrived at this beautiful hotel located just minutes from all the major attractions in down town Ottawa. My partner had been here before, but this was my first time and let me tell you - I was impressed. From the outside, you look at this place and say "Oh my god, where am I!".. Ok it's not that bad but it's sure a contrast to the inside!
Once you enter, you're greeted by a beautiful lobby with a 6 story open air space above the check in desks. The staff, who have been extremely friendly to my partner and continued this with us indicated that our room wasn't quite ready, however she would have it cleaned quickly and call us once the room was prepared (to be fair, check in time was at 15:00 and we arrived at 14:15.
Our room, 522 located on the 5th floor in the corner was beautiful. Opening the door you are greeted by a small hallway, a large bathroom opening up to a beautiful large bedroom. The bedroom has a small seating area, a desk, a large TV, 3 large windows (with blackout blinds, thank god!) and a giant comfortable bed. The bedroom has a decent sized stand up shower, and a small Jacuzzi tub. The windows were pretty sound proof, didn't hear a peep while sleeping.
I'm not kidding when I say, for the price, it really doesn't get any better than this. The hotel is less than a 5 minute walk to all major 'hill' tourist attractions. The Byward Market is less than 10 minutes, and the giant huge mall is in that same area as well.
Oh and I almost forgot, a 24 hour gym complete with very modern workout equipment (this gym is probably one of the best I've seen in a hotel), a small pool (only 3.5ft deep) and a small hot tub (3 large guys and you'd be getting super friendly).
If I visit Ottawa again, I'd definitely return! Thanks Indigo!
P.S. - **MANAGEMENT** - You have incredible staff! Forgive me for forgetting her name, but Kesha and another young lady were working, and it was the other person that helped us. She was so friendly and brought us our hotel keys while we had a drink at the bar. Even more impressive (and you don't see this in a lot of hotels) were your cleaning staff. We often don't appreciate them and they generally seem to 'fade' into the background. Here, they were SO friendly and ANY time that I walked past any of them they would stop, say hi, ask how my day was and wish me a great day on the way out. Good Job! Thanks again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Elita Comfortable bed and excellent service
We had a King-sized bed with a firm mattress, making for an excellent night's sleep. I also loved the wallpaper in our room. Would love to be able to buy it.
The staff at the front desk were very helpful in providing
directions to some of the places we wanted to visit.
Our cleaning lady provided excellent service for our room.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Onthego123 In need of signage
I used the parking, it needs signage of where you want us to park. Definitely not clearly defined. Vending... what floor? and you need more pop or snacks. Had to go to front desk staff to find out. Some form of vending machine snacks would have been perfect. Pool was gross.. you need to clean it !!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 4lainey Love coming back here
This is my go to hotel whenever I come to Ottawa. The staff are very friendly, which reflects well on the rest of the hotel. Sean at the front desk, in particular, is very good at client service and satisfaction.
The first room I had I had problems with the thermostat and I had called to get some help. The lady that came couldn't fix it so I just left it for the night because I was exhausted. The next day, they moved me to another room and everything was taken care of. I still couldn't figure out the thermostat but luckily I could have it cool during the night and it wasn't too disruptive.
The only minor complaint, which I have experienced a few times is that the staff do not always replenish the toiletries in the bathroom. Again, minor, but I don't think I should have to call to ask for additional shampoo or conditioner if there is none there.
The hotel is clean, staff are friendly, there is a great gym, and it's central to downtown Ottawa. It's my home away from home!

This was our 3rd visit to Indigo. We stayed here on our wedding night a few years ago (lovely), again for our anniversary this year and, because there were some issues with that stay, they gave us a complimentary night. As a hotel, it's in a great location (although downtown Ottawa is unfortunately a little lame) and allows for lots of interesting walking. I would recommend sticking to the basic stay instead of the specials, however. As parents, who rarely get a break, we ordered the "New Parent Escape" for our anniversary which boasted "an evening treat carefully prepared by our chef, a movie, breakfast in bed..." among a couple of other things. Sounds awesome, right? The way it was written sounded like it was something made by the chef, gooey chocolate mini cake or something sinful. Instead it was a bag of chips (expensive ones but still chips), a chocolate bar, nuts and drinks, which are all totally fine, the description just seemed slightly misleading and we would normally bring this kind of stuff with us anyway. The room that we were in (which was the most expensive room but I really wanted us to have a treat) was an adjoining room and, unfortunately, there was a screaming infant in the room right next to us, and because it was adjoining, we could hear everything, even the poor parents soothing them. Perhaps we should have complained at the front desk at the time, but it was 2 am, we were both beat and didn't want to have to re-pack everything for a few more hours' sleep. There was no menu for the breakfast and when I called down in the morning to figure out how to order breakfast, they recommended I come down and order it in the restaurant... which isn't breakfast in bed. They cleared it up when I complained and brought up breakfast, which was good. This past stay was great though- we slept like the dead- the room was comfortable, clean and well organized. I'd just stick to the rooms in future, instead of the specials.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by NCRS GreatStaff horrible parking garage
The Hotel and its Staff are excellent. The location is perfect for business or leisure. The parking garage, after you finally find it, is not a pleasant experience. Also getting from the garage to the Hotel is not easy either especially with luggage and the escalator not working. They need a better system for identifying hotel guests' cars instead of getting a ticket from the front desk and having to go back to your car and putting it on the windshield.

Friendly staff, comfortable, clean, modern room and an indoor pool and hot tub as well. You can't go wrong. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Great value for price paid.
Plus no carpet in room and totally non-smoking environment! Within walking distance to most attractions, i.e. Parliament buildings, Byward market, Rideau Centre, universities, etc. Rapid public transit (bus)) nearby to go to train station and St. Laurent Mall so you can leave car in garage during your stay. No bathtub, but lovely glass shower. Nice boutique hotel; you'll love it!

Fourth time in Ottawa and second time at this hotel. Both experiences were excellent. I especially appreciate the housekeeping staff: friendly, considerate and accommodating. They don't make me feel like i'm disrupting their day with my small idiosyncratic requests. All staff were pleasant but housekeeping staff are notable. This review comes after 3.5 weeks away from home, staying in 10 different hotels. Hotel Indigo was my last hotel of the month and the experience at Indigo was almost as pleasant as being back home. Fitness centre was decent, too. Great running town as well. I'll be back.

Overall the hotel is in good location walking distance to almost all amenities.. Just some minor complaints. I booked a king bed and a pull out sofa bed. When we got to our room (610) it was a queen bed and a sofa bed but didn't bother to complain, don't want to make any fuzzz...It was no view since it's an inside room and the bed was squeaking everytime you turn :(. Other than that everything is good.

The Hotel indigo in Metcalfe Street, Ottowa is in a great location for access to the city center and Ottowa attractions - so good for tourists and business customers alike. I liked the decor and the fresh bright appearance of the hotel lobby and the room. The staff are attentive and friendly. I really enjoyed my stay.

Stayed here a few times over the past year. The escalator to the lobby has never worked. The elevator in the parking garage wasn't working on one of my visits. Didn't try it on my last visit as I chose the stairs.
With all the good attributes of this hotel not sure why management can't do something about the escalator.
I will stay again because of location and rooms.

This was a last-minute booking at a very busy time of year, and the staff at the Indigo couldn't have been more accommodating or friendly. The room was perfect--clean and user-friendly, the entire hotel was spotless, the staff provided directions to literally everywhere--we'd return in a heartbeat!

This hotel has amazing staff and we hope they will be acknowledged , there was nothing put on about how naturally friendly they were.
The ones we met were Louco, Sophia and Randy.
Good job guys.!
The problem with this hotel is the parking and the interior rooms, the rooms are rather crowded and very poor lighting.
It also seemed somewhat more expensive than others were paying in our group that were at other hotels.
