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!
