Aristocrat Suite Hotel: Perfect
Great service. Great location. Great price.
Staff and service are excellent and the rooms are spacious.
The amenities are low but are you there to see Ottawa or are you there to see your hotel?
Ottawa is an amazing trip!
Terrific value - modest expectations
Held modest expectations and was pleasantly surprised by the hotel. The prior reviews on this website were helpful.
Visited Dec/03 and never did post my review. Am currently planning another trip, and have used this website again, so am posting my review as a way of contributing back to this excellent resource.
Received very good price on Expedia. Hotel was worth the cost.
Located on residential street that has other hotels. Ten minute walk to Parliament. Quiet neighbourhood.
Room was terrific. For the price, received great value - King size bed, large sitting area, balcony, small kitchen table, a fridge / sink / cupboards. Washroom was good. As stated by others, you can actually "order in" groceries at usual retail prices plus a $5 service fee.
Two or three drawbacks only. Parking is convenient but motel style. Service was mixed - inexperienced, young staff mixed in with courteous senior staff.
Biggest drawback is that while lobby is nicely renovated, the elevators and floor hallways, as well as the door to the suite room, are old. They are circa 1970 apartment style, which is what the building actually is - a renovated apartment.
But as long as you are prepared, this is a terrific value. Would stay there again.
Great place to stay
Very nice hotel, the suites are great for entertaining if you are with a group. Carmello's downstairs has great food and drinks for a reasonable price. Only complaint would be that it is time for new carpet.
I went down with my boyfriend for a weekend last month and the place was beautiful I stayed in the suite just BEAUTIFUL.I was pleased with the hotel the service was great and the rooms were clean and the prices are low.
A terrific bargain!
Got a great deal on this hotel via Expedia, and we were not disappointed! The rooms were spacious and had full kitchens. They'll even do the food shopping for you! There's a very nice jacuzzi and workout room as well. We also had a nice dinner at Carmello's - the privately-owned restaurant in the hotel - but for breakfast, we went around the corner to Dunn's Famous - which was terrific! Walking-wise, it's about 15 minutes from all the major attractions. We'd stay there again!
Aristocrat Suites is great value
We stayed with kids at the Aristocrat Suites during the recent power problems. Great stay, great value and there's laundry machines downstairs. The price from Expedia was the same as we would have paid for an old motel. Suite was such a find if you're travelling with kids. I just wish they had a pool. However, the Cartier Suites across the street will let you use their pool for $5 apiece. Next time, I hope the mint is open.
This hotel was almost really good. I like getting a suite for normal room prices. Turns out it has limited hotel parking (which is extra), and because we were there on Canada day there was none left for us. We ended up parking a few blocks away at the city hall (which turned out to be cheaper) but it did mean we had farther to walk and no "in/out" privledges on the car. The room was adequate - clean and a good shower, decent bed, but was run down in some places, with strange things like a missing door knob on an interior door. It is in a great location, close to everything, including some reasonable resturants.
Aristocrat is a good deal
We just came back from spending Canada Day in Ottawa and stayed three nights at the Aristocrat Suite Hotel.
The good things about the hotel: - We liked having our son sleep in a separate room, having a living room to sit in when we are not in bed, and having access to a kitchen and a large fridge, even though we didn't actually prepare meals. But we could have. - The hotel and our suite were clean and fresh, furnished in good taste, with everything in good repair, so that despite the good price we paid, we did not feel we were in a dump. I was anxious about this going to the hotel. The furniture was new, simple and solid, not old and rickety, the walls freshly painted, the bathroom newly renovated. - The fitness room was so so, but the whirlpool and sauna were georgous. - The hotel did not contain a stale old smell, even in the older part of the building.- Helpful staff. - The hotel is within walkng distance to most of the sights we were interested in, and is close to a residential area so we got a feel for what it may be like to live in Ottawa.
The less enjoyable things about the hotel: - It's on an incredible noisy street with motorcycles and cars revving it up in the middle of the night, and people shouting and whistling in the street early in the morning. - Our suite was in the older part of the hotel that contained an air conditioning unit that was noisy and did not cool. It was much cooler just leaving the window open. But then you hear all the other air conditioners running in the other units. - The rooms are a bit small.
Our group of 10 were in Ottawa for the National Capital Race Weekend. We were greeted by staff of the Aristocrat Suite Hotel with bottled water, Power Gel and Power Bars, they were helpful booking cabs, with parking advice, with checkout, etc. We would definitely return.
We were recently in Ottawa for the Marathon (May 11, 2003) and were very happy with this hotel. It is located very close to the Start Line (City Hall) and is very close to all the restaurants on Elgin Street. Everything we wanted to see was within walking distance. The Staff were very friendly and helpful. The suite was average and clean and the bathroom was beautiful (newly renovated). Everything was in working order. Thanks for a great weekend!

Thus begins the adventure. With the packing of bags...perhaps over packing...I headed off to the airport for the first leg of my journey to Africa.
It's been a busy day, but not overly hectic and I made it to the airport with plenty of time to be overcharged for my second piece of checked luggage. I'm choosing not to let that bother me though and instead to focus on the adventure ahead, the cool pint of Heineken and all ...
... is essentially a home made floating Tiki Bar on the rivière. He is undertaking hypnosis to help him cut back to less than a dozen beers a day and to increase his drawing power with the ladies. We wished him well on the road to self improvement, viewed a beautifully renovated covered bridge and then headed back to Ottawa for a BBQ of pork tenderloin which Paul and I executed with near surgeon like precision with our culinary skills being enhanced ...
... with a nice Canadian IPA (from Muskoka Brewery) to enjoy more of the spring air. Phil very generously brought out a more local IPA for us to try, followed by some delicious appetisers left over from the family party they had been to in Montreal. Phil and Zhen are a really inspiring couple. In addition to their day jobs they operate a business importing & retailing high end Chinese tea. We had a lovely evening chatting, sharing stories of our travels ...

... sore & bottom frozen from sitting on bench seats like my old swimming club days. Face & head covered in a scarf, wearing gloves & aforementioned quilted jacket of course. Luckily the games are only about 45 mins, broken into 3rds. However the game is sensational to watch & relatively rough even at this level & while Kenzie's skills don't yet match her enthusiasm, we all had a great time. An hour later we were back in the car & heading home for a dinner ...
