    Historical Traveler Reviews Courtyard by Marriott Ottawa Downtown

    Great Location & Staff

    from

    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.

    The Courtyard hotel could not have been better placed. We were a block from the Byward market area, a few blocks from Parliament and the art museum, and very close to many shops and restaurants. My daughter even bought a nice pair of deck shoes at an outdoor shop (and we're very tough shoppers!).

    We had some trouble with our TV, and the staff did an excellent job of ferretting out the problem and repairing it. Our room (456) faced the courtyard and was very quiet.

    It was an excellent experience.

    Great Staff and Excellent Location

    from

    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.

    The hotel has 4 levels, a bar, and a restaurant. We did not use the bar or the restaurant as there are plenty of other choices right outside the hotel. The parking lot is 2 levels and has room for ~100 cars. Parking is $9.50 incl. tax per day.

    The rooms are obviously designed for the business traveller in mind. The room was furnished with a desk, large bed, and sofa. All rooms also have free highspeed internet which is a nice touch.

    During our reservation process we forgot to book a non-smoking room, and being Canada Day, the hotel was at capacity and we were stuck with a smoking room. The room was stinky, but the staff at the front desk rushed us a deodorizer which helped to mask the smoke. Overall the staff was very accomodating and friendly! They even offered to move us ASAP if the smoking room bothered us too much.

    I highly recommend this hotel - for business or leisure!

    Excellent Location

    from

    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.

    The hotel is excellent and the breakfast buffet is one of the best you will ever see. Be warned though, it is not complimentary which is what we thought and we ended up paying $12 CAD plus taxes each for Continental. We will know next time!

    Hotel is clean, smart and well run and parking is provided although at a cost to guests circa $10 CAD daily. This is worth it because you can abandon your car whilst in Ottawa and use your feet because everything is so convenient.

    A quality hotel and a great city to visit - we will be back to both.

    Great location

    from

    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.

    Nice pool area; lack of changing rooms was our only complaint. Staff were courteous and attentive and all seemed to be bilingual. The daily fee for underground parking is fair, given the area. A nice hotel, and we'd certainly stay there again.

    Great Hotel and Location

    from

    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.

    This hotel is in the heart of Byward market and it is within walking distance to everything! We had parked at the hotel and just walked everywhere. It is a great deal to just leave the car parked all day and pay $8.50 plus tax for one day of parking. They have charged parking on the hotel bill and I needed a token from the front desk to exit the parking lot. It doesn't seem like there were any in/out privileges.

    I had breakfast at Nickels which is just on the other corner from the hotel. Great price for breakfast $4.99, but there is a $3.75 special that ends at 8:30 am. There is a lot of restaurants in the byward market and pently of places to see.

    Excellent hotel & location!

    from

    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.

    Terrific stay!

    from

    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

    from

    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....

    Clean, friendly, in the center of the action!

    from

    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!

    Took the roses!

    from

    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.

    The restaurant at the Courtyard is only open for breakfast, though another guest pointed me to nearby Nickels 24 hour Bar & Grill. A lovely breakfast of ham & eggs with all the trimmings is a mere $3.75 at Nickels. Such a deal! The Marriott Courtyard is conveniently located by the funky Byward Market and is a mere 6-minute walk from the convention centre at the Westin.

    Since I will not be in Ottawa for what will be a very different Remembrance Day this year, I decided to visit the National War Memorial in Ottawa. I felt compelled to pay

    ... Peace tower observation deck and the memorial chamber. Okay, let's do that.

    First you have to go through a security check just like the airport but you can keep your shoes on. We then climbed 2 flights of stairs and waited in a line for the elevator that would take 8 people (the lift operator and 7 other guests) at a time to the top of a small bell tower that was constructed after the 1st World War. We were lucky because there were only about 20 folks in ...
