Novotel Ottawa Reviews
Probably the best hotel stay available in Ottawa Apr 10, 2011
Celebrated my birthday weekend in a King Executive Suite, April 1st- April 4th. Definitely loved the stay, I think the Novotel brand is actually a bit underrated... not sure why? But I feel as though this might just be the best hotel in Ottawa, its no secret that the national capital region is definitely lacking a bit when it comes to the hotel industry. So this was a nice find
-Perfect location; located right downtown beside Rideau mall, close to the market and everything downtown Ottawa has to offer.
-Free internet in lobby
-A bit expensive, but I guess understandable for a government city
-They put me in a junior suite when I checked in and didn't notify me, I guess they were hoping I wouldn't notice or something? Either way, I had to call down only to find out they gave my executive suite to someone else, then had to WAIT till the next day before I could be moved to the proper room.
-The bathroom's door lock did not work, not sure what was up with that
-Also, the bathroom door panels are somewhat see through, so it was a bit awkward as you could see what anyone was doing through the door
-I find they have the most ridiculous fees/charges policy I have ever come across. Not only did they charge a $150 'security' fee a few days before I checked in, they charged my card an ADDITIONAL $80/ DAY on top of the price of $465 that I already had to pay in total. The worst part is that I would not get these charges back until THREE BUSINESS DAYS AFTER I checked out. I found the whole thing to just be unnecessary and quite annoying
All in all, I would definitely recommend this as the place to stay when visiting Ottawa. Just be prepared for their ridiculous security holds/ charges lol
