Had a great stay here last month. Rooms were great, very comfortable beds. Check in was easy. Location was perfect--easy parking, and close to downtown and the canal. Pool and fitness area were fantastic too, with great views of downtown at sunset. Would definitely stay here

The bad (7th floor): - Very large, very busy hotel - so hallways seemed loud at all hours of the night. - One of the three elevators were not operational during our stay - made for very long wait times in this 15 story building. - Our room smelled of ammonia (from cleaning

Greetings roooonda, Thanks for sharing your honest feedback in this TA review. We appreciate the kind words, and we hope you enjoyed your stay in spite of a few annoyances. Providing the highest level of hospitality is our number one priority and we sincerely apologize for falling short of meeting your expectations. As a teachable moment, we have shared your feedback with the appropriate hotel teams to ensure the necessary guidelines are in place to prevent similar guest issues from occurring in the future. In response to some of the issues you've alerted us to, we do know that the elevator outage was brief, and that our elevator service company responded to our call within the hour. Our Exec. Housekeeper had informed us that our room attendants do not use any cleaning products which contain ammonia, as those would prove to be am irritant to guests who are sensitive to these. Would you mind letting us know which room you occupied, so that we may address the issue for future guests? Once again, thank you for your valued feedback and we hope to serve you again whenever your travels bring you back to Ottawa. Sincerely, GILLES LEBRUN Assistant General Manager \ Directeur adjoint Courtyard by Marriott Ottawa East gilles.lebrun@marriott.com (613) 288-2172

The Courtyard in Ottawa East, is just a short jaunt off the 417W on to the Vainer Parkway after the St. Laurent Shopping Center. The reason for my stay at this Courtyard is a 'sick' out of town story. My wife was scheduled for an operation in a nearby hospital and this hotel

Nice location, nice pool and tub, the room was clean and practical with a kid. Loved the indoor parking. Unfortunately, our room was overheated and the temperature controller would not work. At midnight, the room was 30 degrees celcius even with the controller turned off. This

Greetings DuncanH, Getting to our Downtown core couldn't be easier! You do havev access to public transportation, via OC Transpo; the bus stop is but a few yards away at the intersection of Coventry and Vanier Parkway. The Blue Line Taxi stand is located at our Front Doors. UBER is also a popular option. A typical cab ride to downtown is about 6 minutes, and a $12-15 fare. Guest Services would be happy to provide all of the details. Hope this helps. G. Lebrun, AGM, Courtyard Ottawa East.

Good morning Julia M, Typically, anyone aged 18 or older may check into our hotel, provided they have a required government-issued identification card, and an approved payment method. We do not accept cash from "walk-in" guests as payment. Other hotels may have differing policies. I hope this answers your question.

Dear cindy_solomino, Thank you for reaching out to us with your question. In the Main Lobby, you'll find a few sofa chairs and loveseats which are generally used by guests of the hotel as they read, await other guests, taxis, etc. You'll also find two areas known as out Home Theaters, that have comfortable seating and lighting. The Bistro is also a wonderful place to meet, offering a light menu, along with Starbucks Coffee selections. While we welcome everyone to our public spaces, we do monitor those who strictly come in to use our wifi service. We look forward to welcoming you for a visit! Cheers, The Courtyard Team, Ottawa East.

"Ask for something not near the elevators or stairway"
"All rooms have floor to celing windows, but higher floors give better view of neighborhood."
"Away from the elevators is better"
"If you like a view of office buildings, then perhaps higher floors would suit you, but we opted for a ground floor room instead."
"We enjoyed a room on the 13th floor looking west."
