It feels like a house, also is very clean big rooms, and only few people staying. The location is excellent just near byward market and the parliament!

Martin is very kind and accommodating, as were the other staff on site. Great patios out front and back, literally a block away from the byward market area and dozens of bars and restaurants. Close to a bus stop, and University of Ottawa. The A/C in the South America room made a world of difference too on the humid days I was there. Great place!
