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.

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.
Room Tip: - Exterior rooms have better views, interior rooms look into Atrium with noisy exhaust fan - Stay a...
