Very much enjoyed the hotel. Very comfortable and excellent friendly, helpful staff. Location was superb as we could walk to museums and other Ottawa places/sites of interest and were also close to many restaurants. Highly recommend the hotel.

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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The BFFs Centrally located, comfortable, clean and friendly
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!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cato pleasant boutique hotel in good location
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.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by VicAnne14 NO View and a Squeaking bed :(
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.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by renier22 Access - the challenge
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!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Comfortable bed, excellent sevice
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.

I LOVED THE HOTEL LOCATION. HOTEL STAFF WERE FRIENDLY AND HELPFUL. PAID EXTRA FOR A LARGER ROOM WHICH WAS OK. WOULD HAVE LIKED A LARGER CHOICE OF FOOD AND SNACKS IN THEIR TO GO AREA. PARKING IN THEIR UNDER THE HOTEL GARAGE WAS AN INTERESTING EXPERIENCE.

I am an IHG Platinum member and stay away all the time, The Hotel Indigo Ottawa is near the very top when it comes to hotels.
It has great staff, a great location and modern rooms.
We will certainly stay here again, 3rd visit in 2 years, always been excellent.

I really enjoyed my stay. Clean and very modern feel. Good amenities and extremely friendly staff, which is fantastic. Parking was a little bit confusing at first. Walking distance to almost everything including the Byward Market and Elgin Street. I would definitely stay again. Thanks

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Doug999999 Dirty Room, Reservation Error
Under bed was filthy. Young daughter was horrified when her bag went under the bed and came out literally coated in disgusting dust. Bottom of curtains were black with dirt and so was the heater. AC couldn't cool room and sounded like it was about to give up the ghost. Wallpaper peeling, generally quite unpleasant.
Informed we had a single bed when we specifically requested two. Clerk fixed the error, but only after treating us like it was our problem, not hers. Ultimately said "it's not your fault", which I already knew, rather than apologizing for the error graciously. It would have been so easy to have created a positive customer interaction rather than a negative one.
Pool was so cloudy you couldn't see three feet (literally). It needs some serious chemical balancing. It was like this for our entire 7 day stay, so it wasn't a temporary condition.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rockleberry1 Great stay
Being in Ottawa for business and meeting people downtown, this was an ideal property.
The staff are top notch. Polite, professional and personable. Not a "yes sir" drone that you can get in some locations.
The room was a great change from the standard carpeted hotel room. The only drawback I had was being in an outside facing room, there were a few noisy trucks that were going around in the wee hours.
The parking lot is narrow and small and Hotel Indigo guests are to park on the lowest level. I find $21 on the expensive side but I am sure that it is well within the range for that area and that would not keep me from coming back. The parking garage elevator was not functional for my stay. I was advised at check-in, and they recommended bringing in luggage before going to park and were willing to assist if I needed assistance. While I was there was a tremendous downpour of rain. As a result, there was water coming up through the floor drains on the lowest level of the garage. When I mentioned it to the desk staff, they said they had just been informed and notified someone and when I returned to park on another level. This would have been great if there were empty spaces on the other levels. Walking through the water was not on my highlight reel for this trip. Most of the water had gone by morning but there were still puddles to walk through depending where the car was parked.
The staff are definitely the biggest asset this hotel has. Hopefully it will still be as good the next time I visit.

After a long absence this location was ideal for returning to Ottawa. Combined business and pleasure stop was helped considerably by nearby sites and dining. Urban location with walking options in every direction. Byward market area alone demands return for further exploring. Great summer stop.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by David0523 Clean and comfortable accommodation
I found the hotel to be charming and perfectly located for my purposes. I did find that the parking, although reasonably convenient, was priced much higher ($21/day) than I have experienced at many downtown hotels. I very much liked the hotel design with its atrium and open, airy lobby. The designers have done a great job taking an older building and updating it to feel fresh and inviting. This was my second stay at Indigo in Ottawa and I would use this hotel for my next visit.

This was our 3rd visit to Ottawa in as many years and our first time staying at the Hotel Indigo. Our next stay will be here again, we absolutely loved it!
The rooms are clean and comfy, with everything you need. The staff is friendly and very helpful from the moment you check in to the moment you check out.
The location is perfect, we parked our car and were able to walk everywhere for the sightseeing and Canada Day celebrations.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Canadian and Proud of it Poor Management
Toilet backup took two days to clear.
Restaurant experience was horrible every meal.
No towels on Canada Day - there was an explanation but all it did was demonstrate the level of poor management planning.
Paying a premium price for this room while receiving an inferior product was our experience.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by clinch Great location and nice hotel
If you're travelling to Ottawa, this is a great place to stay if you want to be central and near parliament hill.
In general, the hotel is clean, safe and comfortable. The restaurant staff could use a bit of cheering up though. Perhaps it's all the free breakfasts sans-tips that they have to deal with.
I had problems with my room leaking, but I don't think this is a common occurrence, so I won't dwell on it.
