Ottawa Marriott Hotel Reviews
This is NOWHERE NEAR a 4 star hotel. Oct 14, 2012
I cannot believe that this hotel is being listed in some places [HOTWIRE] as 4 star!!??? I actually felt completely scammed after my stay here. It is nowhere near a 4 star hotel, do not fall for this! This hotel is in bad need of an upgrade. After this trip, I really started questioning who it is or what organization that comes up with these hotel ratings and decides what to give each place!? Maybe they are getting bribed? Because it makes no sense to me.
Being from Ottawa, I should know better than to have used hotwire to book a hotel. Ottawa is just one of those cities where it is paramount to know exactly where you will be staying, You absolutely cannot risk it or you will get screwed, like I did. You have been warned people!!! I got a deal through Hotwire, it was about $130/ night after taxes during this past Thanksgiving weekend.
-Front desk staff/ bellman/ room service were extremely friendly and helpful [maybe this is how they got their 4 stars!?]
-I believe they have a gym/ pool facility
-There is a business center where you can use computers and printers for free
-There was a fridge AND a microwave in the room [rare to find these in hotels lately]
-There is an option to not get your room cleaned for the duration of your stay, which will get you a $10 coupon from their restaurant [I was actually grateful for this, as it helped a bit on the $30 breakfast they charged me; please see below]
-This hotel is outdated; I was quite shocked that a 4 star would be like this. Specifically; the bathroom is in need of some renos
-RIDICULOUSLY EXPENSIVE; internet was like 20 bucks per day or something, parking was crazy expensive. I ordered the tiniest room service food I have ever seen in my life [didn't even taste that good and was starving after :( ], that somehow came up to 30 bucks :S
-Although they are touted as being downtown; it is NOT close to the market or Rideau... soo pretty much pointless if you are in need of a place that you can walk everywhere
I would definitely NOT recommend this hotel to anyone, even if you are getting a good deal. Trust me, there are way more modern, better located hotels in Ottawa for pretty much the same price but better value. Extremely surprised by all the people writing reviews for this hotel claiming it was the best stay they ever had; I don't believe it!
Ottawa is not the kind of city to use hotwire or priceline for, trust me!!!
