Ottawa trip
It was a very pleasant stay. The customer service was excellent. It was close to all the attractiions. I went to visit my son who is a sentry at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. It was just a short walk away. The room was very comfortable and clean. I would definitely stay again.

Check in okay. Did not clean our room first night. Second night the room was cleaned but no top up of shampoo or towels. Third night, fire alarm went off in middle of the night. Disappointed all round.
