... It was soooo devine..all I could say was OMG!!! Yummy
Went out to a friend’s place with about 4 other friends and had another girls night in, this time about 5 of us and I also **Voxed** my friend Tija in Tassie and we had a cool conversation going…The girls all said hi to her…It was camaraderie at its finest. I am going to miss them all.
I enjoyed the week, as it had a little of everything and I reconnected ...
... come in at 8.20am and leave at 2.50pm. At home it's 9am until 3.15pm. - Parent/teacher interviews (parents nights) are held during a Professional Development day where kids are off school so you don't have to, after a full day in class, rush your kids out the door at 3.15, race to the toilet, grab a drink, get to the hall and try to look/sound professional and non-sweaty by 3.30pm. It seems better here, on paper at least. Time will tell! ...
... saw the mall slide off into the distance. I managed to get off at the next stop, just before the bus joined the main highway, and had to walk back along the route in the already hot sunshine bedside some pretty fast traffic and incompetent drivers. Thankfully I avoided death which was a good job because almost every store in the mall had 40-50% off 'back to school' promotions. I had a quick look at the mall guide and decided I ...
Late start today, probably because my subconscious knew it was another short day, so I hadn't the motivation to wake at my alarm. I have been having some tire issues as of late, and today I found out why. The 'bulletproof' tire that the crooked bike shop owner in Sand Point ID sold me wore almost through in the 2000 miles since then. That is a short life for a tire, and I'm anxious to see if this new ...
Today was a day jam packed full of information. We took the shuttle in from the campground and met John and Teewei at the Terry Fox statue across the street from the Parliament Buildings. While Rod and the kids watched the lengthy changing of the guards ceremony we waited in line for the free parliamentary tour tickets. At 10:45 we met our guide from Ottawa walking tours and started off on our history lesson. We were told many stories about people and the important buildings that we ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Courtyard by Marriott Ottawa Downtown
We just returned from a 5-day stay in the Ottawa area (one day was spent in and around Gananoque) with four days at the Courtyard by Marriott. My spouse, daughter, and I drove from Syracuse -- a remarkably easy drive except for the needlessly involved delay prior to meeting a border guard (the US side was much longer than the Canadian side). I recommend the drive along the seaway (versus 401) until you must turn north on 417.
We just returned from a Canada Day long weekend stay at the Marriott Courtyard in downtown Ottawa. The hotel is steps from the bustling Byward Market, 5 minutes to Rideau Shopping Center and <10 minutes from Parliment Hill.
I am writing this review while staying at the Marriott Courtyard in Ottawa. This is an excellent hotel in a great location which is convenient for all the key sightseeing spots in Ottawa. Situated in Byward Market, there is a fantastic choice of restaurants right on the door step and a real buzz about the area.
Stayed here 5 nights with my wife and 3-year-old son; it was our first trip to Ottawa. Superb location in the heart of the Byward Market. An easy walk to Parliament Hill and its surrounding attractions. The room was exactly as we had booked, clean, and problem-free. They bill their breakfast as the "best buffet breakfast in town." I have no base of comparison, but it's certainly adequate: ham, sausage, bacon, eggs to order, a variety of fruit and juices, pancakes, crepes, waffles, breads/pastries, yoghurt, cheese, cereals, etc. I was left not wanting much else! The restaurant only serves breakfast, and there is no room service, but with 130 choices within a few blocks, you shouldn't need it.
This must be one of the cleanest hotels I have ever seen. The hotel room was spotless. I was trying to look for some dirt and could not find any. I had gotten my room from priceline and felt that I was given the worst room in the hotel. Even the worst room was a great room! I had a view out the window looking at a wall, I had vibrations in my room from the adjacent ice maker. But I get what I paided for, a cheap room in price but the quality was still a great deal. I liked the remote thermostat that controlled the heating/air conditioning and also the pool had a kiddie section too. The hot tub was too hot for me. It felt like the water was boiling hot! They also charge $1 for local calls in the room, Toll free calls are free. They also had pay phones in the lobby that you can use too. The bath tub and toliet was separate from the sink with a door for privacy.
Stayed here for 1 night in December 2004 with my wife & 2 kids & was very impressed with this property. It is located in the heart of the Byward market area, and is a 5 minute walk to the Rideau Centre which has over 300 stores. The staff were all super friendly and the rooms are of decent size with a desk area. It was kept super clean as was the entire property. We really enjoyed the pool area (small separate shallow area for small children) as well as the huge hot tub. A nice touch was the free assortment of soft drinks and cookies during the evening & the free coffee,muffins & newspaper in the lobby in the morning. The indoor underground heated parking garage with in/out privileges was also great. Being in the travel inndusrty myself, would highly recommend to the business or leisure traveller.
Spent the weekend here and had a terrific time. Walking distance to major Ottawa attractions e.g. Parliament Buildings, War Museum, Canadian Mint, Byward Market, Rideau Canal, Shopping, etc.
Room was clean and spacious. Pool & surroundings well maintained. Will definitely stay here on our next visit.
Always quality with Courtyard
Courtyard is always attach with quality and that's what you get at the Ottawa Courtyard. The location is the best you can get in downtown ottawa. 1-2 blocks from the lively Byward Market, walkable distance to business downtown and main attractions. Outside and underground parking (For 8.50$ fee a day). Rooms are clean, staff ready to help and friendly. Excellent breakfast buffet. I recommend....
We always stay here when we visit Ottawa, 3 or 4 times a year. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. There is underground parking and good security, although it costs $8 per day. The breakfast buffet has to be the best in Ottawa; they make the omelettes, have fresh fruit, delicious pastries, everything. We like it here because everything is in walking distance, the Parliament buildings, the Rideau shopping mall and canal, the center of town, the fun Byward Market, shops, restaurants, and a neat tv station where you can 'speak your mind'. We also like the streetside entertainers there. This seems to be a very happy place! They also have net access on the 1st floor, which adds a touch of home and costs a 'toonie' for 8 minutes. Several eating places are open 24 hours. There is a 24 hour money exchange across the street. If you stay there, try not to stay on the York St. side because the clubs there can get pretty loud! We give this hotel a thumbs up!
My colleague and I were on the same plane from the West Coast traveling to a medical conference in Ottawa. We shared a cab to our respective hotels; he was staying at a prestigious $250+ place and my room at the relatively modest Marriott Courtyard was about $140. A few days later on the flight home we compared notes on our accommodation. Dollar for dollar, the Courtyard took the roses.The rooms are comfortable. My room included a king sized bed, an easy chair, an ottoman, a large TV, a practical work desk and good lighting. In comparison, my colleagues room was just plain old. He really missed good lighting and a proper work desk. He complained of a rather insufficient fitness centre, which the Courtyard didnt fare well in either. Fitness wise, at the Courtyard theres an attractive large indoor pool and a tiny fitness centre with a large TV, a treadmill, a stair climber, and a resistance contraption.
