Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by EVerm One of the best HIXpress hotels
Stayed at the Ottowa HI Express for 3 nights, based on location and price, and I was a little worried about the noise level, being so close to the airport.
What a pleasant surprise to find out that you hear virtually no noise whatsoever!.
Rooms are comfortable, breakfast is standard HI fare, staff is friendly and helpful, rooms are clean and well maintained.
A few feet from the hotel is a great English pub called the Royal Oak, which has good food, friendly stff and a great selection of beers. A short drive from the hotel is a shopping mall with some restaurants (Montana steakhouse is recommended) so location wise, a great choice. I will definitely stay here again.

My family stayed at the hotel while moving my brother into school. The staff were extremely helpful and accommodating including accommodating a late checkout so my wife, father and little one could have a room while they waited for their flight home.
The hotel guide book for restaurants (including delivery) were perfect. never had a bad meal as a result
Will definitely be returning to the hotel on our next visit to Ottawa

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ECDC Overall Service
My son and I were tired and a wee bit stressed. He was moving into college residence the next day and we had just arrived after a long drive. I was welcomed by a calm and friendly front desk customer service rep. He answered my questions and gave us a quiet room on the main floor. He also recommended a pub close by where we could have dinner and offered us the shuttle service if needed. I found the room spacious, modern, pristine and oh so comfortable,. It was well beyond any of my expectations.
At bedtime, I realized I had packed the toothpaste and wandered down to the front desk. The young lady smiled and promptly handed me tubes of toothpaste!
I had an excellent night's sleep. Considering there was a full house that night, I heard no noise whatsoever.
Breakfast offered many choices, the coffee was hot, the juice cold and the food plentiful. Breakfast staff just kept the trays of freshly made eggs, bacon and sausage coming. A sun filled patio was located just outside and I was able to take my post breakfast coffee outside and enjoy the peace.
Check out was easy breezy.
I will definitely stay here again and I will definitely recommend this particular hotel to everyone! Well done Holiday Inn Express!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pappou104 Great facility and service
It is one of the better Holiday Inns that I have stayed in. Staff was friendly, service was good and the room was clean and comfortable. My experience was positive. The only negative I have is the room rates are very pricey for Holiday Inn.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by stockdale Pleasant experience
We arrived a little early, the person at the desk said it would be about 15 minutes. They suggested that we go to the breakfast area, breakfast was long over, and have a coffee while the room was being prepared. She then came and got us when the room was ready. Excellent service above what should be expected.
Very happy with most of my experiences at the Holiday Inn's. Anything that has been a problem has usually been due to some less than courteous guests at the hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ScottyB Excellent stay
We spent four nights at the Holiday Inn Express near the Ottawa airport during a short vacation for our family. Great location near the airport and not far from the downtown core. We have basically no complaints. Very quiet, clean rooms with any amenities that we would need. The included hot buffet breakfast influenced our decision to stay here and was everything we expected. If I had any complaint it would be that the A/C unit was a bit noisy during the night but not a big issue. I would recomend staying here and will come back again with no question. Thank you to the staff for making our stay very comfortable.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Punchie Wonderful place to stay
Having stayed in Holiday Inn four times during my holiday trip this year, the service, accommodation and welcoming staff were a welcome change from other places I stayed. I highly recommend this hotel and its affiliates in Halifax, Stellarton, N.S. and Ottawa.
My only recommendation would be to lower the beds a little bit for short disabled people could get into them easier. Otherwise, an excellent accommodation hotel to stay in. Thank you.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MP23 One week on HHT
My wife, daughter and I stayed one week at this location. We had requested a suite with joining room but the hotel contacted me a few days before the stay to tell me all suites all been double booked and I couldn't get one. They did give me a room at the end of the hall (king bed) with joining room (2 queens). The King room was great, although it didn't have the living room part in the front, it was larger/wider than most rooms which provided lots of room for my 21 mo old daughter to run around. The other room was essentially a nanny suite for us. The hotel is fairly new (not sure what year complete) but appeared very new and clean. The rooms showed little wear and tear. We used the pool quite a bit and while adults could not really do laps (pool is probably around 30 feet), it was great for us, every time we went to the pool we were the only one there. Breakfast was adequate, usual variety of eggs, bacon/sausage, breads and cereal. Coffee was hot, does anything else matter? There are 2 elevators so you didn't have to wait for one if you needed it. Staff was friendly and helpful as they are at most HIEs. I would surely recommend this hotel, close to airport (5min drive) but not close to Ottawa downtown...

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by copper41 Excellent amenities on site for use
Just want to say I was very impressed with this hotel.
The shuttle service not only takes you to and from the airport but also area restaurants, which surprised me. I was also impressed with how well stocked the breakfast bar was, and with how they left it open for guests to use approximately an hour beyond the listed end time of 10 am.
The front desk staff were superb; informative and pleasant and professional...I was asked if was a Priority Club member to add my points, was given an update on my account totals and told what the pool hours were. The cleaning lady was very pleasant (room 426) and she had maintenance look at my plugged sink immediately.
I also needed toothpaste and a bottle opener and the front desk supplied both with a big grin. I will there again, for sure. Thanks.

This was the cleanest Holiday Inn we have ever stayed at and the perfect place to unwind. One couldn't hear noises in the adjacent rooms or in the hallways which is common with most hotels in this price range. Breakfast was delicious with lots of choices and the lounge was very large and accommodating for our group to meet up at various times of the day. Highly recommend this hotel!

First of all would like to say thank you to Lee,( do not know her title) exceptional and courteous service. We were in Ottawa for our daughters wedding ,, excellent to get all the guests that attended settled in and gave them time to get ready to head to the wedding.
Very clean premises, and excellent maid and breakfast service in the morning.
Amenities all wonderful. My family commented several times on the politeness and accommodating at all time staff members.
Thanks Lee again. and for finding a few things that were left behind, we shall return again to this location.
Have a nice day

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Great Location when travelling
I passed the night there before returning to BC... I had an early flight so it was perfect the hotel is right on the street of the airport they offer a shuttle if you don't have a rental. Close to The Keg... Great Restaurant!!! You don't really hear any airport noise but if you are someone that cant sleep if there is the smallest of noise I would recommend somewhere else maybe or earplugs.

My husband and I have been staying at this Holiday Inn Express since they opened. Our son and his family live close so when we visit from Ohio this is where we stay. Staff is always friendly and helpful. It's a great "hub" for us when visiting.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FireflyLivesOn Made a great weekend into a FANTASTIC one!
We had our daughter's friend join us on short notice (from 3 to 4 ppl# and I called to see about adding a cot to the room. This hotel doesn't have them and no suites #with pull-out couch# were available because of the ComicCon #which is, coincidentally, why we were in town). I figured our guest would have to sleep on the floor but hey, he's young so it'll be fine. :-) When we get to the hotel after many hours of walking around the convention the staff tell us that they have upgraded us to a suite with pull-out couch at no extra charge. The woman I spoke to on Fri had thought of us when a suite opened up and moved us over.
I was so very impressed by her thoughtfulness and the personal touch made our stay very enjoyable. So the kids had a great day at ComicCon followed by about 90 minutes of playing in the pool and then, icing on the cake, everyone had somewhere comfy to sleep! :-)
Thank you so much for your care and attention, I've told this story to many friends and colleagues! It's no wonder this site is one of my favourite hotels in Ottawa. Keep up the great work, it is genuinely appreciated.
