Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bev182 Ideal Location
Holiday Inn Downtown is an ideal place to stay in Ottawa where you are very close to restaurants, shopping, local sites, and walking along the Rideau canal in a very safe neighbourhood. When I have rented a car, it is also an excellent location to get to different parts of Ottawa using the 417.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by smackdonna Terrible Service - Was WALKED IN ON UNDRESSED IN MY ROOM
Terrible hotel. Arrived and the room was small, bed was small, and room smelled musty and of smoke. The next morning I was awoken by housekeeping knocking on my door at 8:30am. I went back to bed and was awoken again by housekeeping at 8:50am though they proceeded to ENTER MY ROOM while I was approaching the door. I was not dressed. It was extremely inappropriate and uncomfortable.
I received an apology when I phoned guest services, though none when I was leaving the hotel, nor any sort of reparation for the issue. I also tweeted and emailed about the ordeal to no avail. I was to receive an email response within 48 hours, though none arrived and it has been a full week.
TERRIBLE EXPERIENCE. TERRIBLE SERVICE. DO NOT GO TO THIS HOTEL.

It was a pleasure to spend our time with you. The breakfasts were wonderful and good quality. Good humor and good advice offered by Ronny were just adequate. The hotel was a good walking distance from all interesting points. Thank you to all your team for making our stay comfortable and enjoyable.

Great place to stay in the Golden Triangle. We were able to walk to all the things we wanted to see and do -- Rideau Canal, Byward Market, Parliament Hill, etc. Plenty of restaurants nearby. Our room was large, clean and comfortable and the staff made us feel welcome. We would definitely recommend this hotel.

The room was good. Clean and updated. The staff was very helpful. The only negative was that the wi-fi in the hotel is so poor it's unusable.

Hotel is wonderfully located to just about anything, all within walking distance. Very clean, great service, quiet and great amenities. I use this hotel for business but would bring my family to it in a heart beat, highly recommended.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by VincentMontreal Good location, great staff...some updates needed
We were charged 34$ for 2 cars' parking, wi in and out privileges. We had to park on the street during the day on Saturday and were told to park in Handicapped spots in the evening because the parking garage was full. The hotel should not sell more parking than spaces they have available!!!
We also requested a crib, but the one that was delivered was not set up,and had a tag on it that said the safety tabs were broken. They did not have another one for us and we had to settle for a portable playpen.
The staff in general were great, and the location convenient. That's about it...we were disappointed this trip.

I have stayed at this hotel many times and can honestly say that every stay is better than the last. Customer service is first class, rates phenomenal for the location of this hotel; so close to everything that matters in Ottawa for a visitor.v Keep up the good work.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by meanse Poor Value
the wireless rarely worked in our room and the price was way too much for what you received. My staff visits Ottawa 5-6 times per year and we will not stay there anymore.

Been staying at this hotel for a few times. Large comfortable room. The front desk staff and the customer service agents are great. I leave a note for the maintenance staff and things got done when I return to my room. The gym is not big in the hotel but sufficient.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bnwe Immaculate and well appointed
My stay was wonderful! Especially since I had just spent a few days at a supposed high end hotel in Toronto the week before, and suffered with over the top prices, and very dirty rooms.
I was so impressed with your hotel. Your staff were always so helpful and friendly, and your rooms are so well maintained. I plan on making a few trips to Ottawa this year and The Holiday Inn will definitely be my hotel!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by mikey123 Below average holiday inn experience
I spent lots of nights at Holiday Inn hotels in North American and I found this Ottawa-Downtown HI experience below average. The property feels dated, the parking was sold out, and customer service was average.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by MJMA RUDE!
Check in is at 1600 hrs and that is when we arrived to have to be told to wait by a rather rude young lady who didn't understand what the big deal was that we had to wait 15 mins, which actually turned into 45 mins. After she rolled her eyes at me, she adviced that there was no parking to go to this parking lot 3 blocks away. We we got there is was full and the rude young lady says "well i don't know what you want me to do about it!". Once checked in the rooms were too hot to be comfortable, the internet didn't work and hotel staff complained at us for everything and there were only two carts to load bags onto.
I have stayed in quiet a few hotels and i will be honest that this is the worst ever. The staff were rude, the hotel was not perpared and had no parking.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by OntBusTraveller Friendly Staff...out of date hotel
During my stay, I found most of the staff to be very friendly. However, the hotel itself was a little outdated. The heat is on throughout the entire hotel including the rooms meaning an individual guest can't really control the climate in your room. When I asked the service rep, he said I had to open windows to get the heat down. The warm temperatures made the stay kind of uncomfortable even with all the windows open.
The restaurant food quality wasn't that good. Standard Holiday Inn menu for breakfast but was not up to par. I would not recommend any of my colleagues to stay here. For Ottawa, overpriced for what you got.
Outside of the restaurant, the friendly staff do their best to make up for the hotel's problems

Enjoyed my stay here. Great location. Staff was friendly and efficient. Room was spacious and comfortable. Only complaint: room WiFi was virtually worthless. Management is aware of this problem.
