More museums, and a generally lousy, cold and wet day ... solid rain. on an off, interspersed with drizzle.

The first place I hit was the Canadian Museum of History - which, as the name (recently changed from 'Canadian Museum of Civilisation') suggests, is full of historical stuff to do with Canada. From prehistoric times (First Nations stuff) through French vs English ...

... car, the DeLorean, Daleks and Star Wars characters. I also got to marvel at the effort people put into their costumes. But then it got too busy and I was acutely aware that a lot of it required quite a bit of money. I left the centre, proudly found the correct bus stop, without the use of Google Maps, and went to enjoy the sunshine and be educated at the Bytown Museum.

On both days I walked around the Ottawa River. It was delightful in the ...

The Middle Part

... Thorin and I, Bilbo miraculously appeared from thin air. I nearly fell over in astonishment and happiness, and ran over to hug him tightly. He hugged me back and as we waited for the deluge of questions to subside, Bilbo slipped something shiny and gold into his pocket. He told us the story of his escape, but I could tell he was leaving something out. I decided to ask him about it later. Our journey continued on with an encounter with some werewolves, and even some ...

    ¡Lo recomiendo sumamente, relación calidad-precio estupenda!


    Dudábamos sobre si hospedarnos aquí después de leer algunas de las otras críticas, ¡pero este hotel es estupendo! Reservamos una suite interior, la cual fue perfecta para que nuestro hijo tuviera su propio cuarto. La ubicación es perfecta, y la relación calidad-precio fue estupenda. ¡Lo recomiendo sumamente!

    Grandement recommandé - Bon prix!


    Nous étions méfiants sur cette réservation après avoir lu quelques commentaires, mais cet hôtel est génial !! Nous avons réservé une suite intérieure parfaite pour que notre fils ait sa propre chambre. L'emplacement est parfait et le prix était bon. Fortement recommandé !

    First time at a Hotel Indigo


    My wife and I stayed at the Hotel Indigo on the Victoria Day weekend. A number of years ago I lived in Ottawa when this property was the Days Inn. The transformation of the property has been amazing and property is now a solid mid-range hotel. Overall we were very happy with the Hotel Indigo and its location one block west of Elgin Street, and a 5- to 10-minute walk to Parliament Hill and the market is ideal (it's a better location than many of the hotels situated in more western areas of the downtown as Ottawa's business core is pretty dead at night and on weekends). We booked directly through the Intercontinental website and paid $144 per night (CAA rate) for a 1-bedroom suite. As a previous review mentioned, some hotel rooms including ours overlooked the interior atrium. While some may consider that a significant negative, the fact is that the outside views from any of the hotel's rooms would not be that great given that it's surrounded by taller building on all sides.

    ¡Me encantó el hotel!


    Pasamos la noche de un fin de semana para chicas en este hotel durante el Festival de Tulipanes, y simplemente nos encantó. Si quieres algo más que hoteles mal decorados, edredones florales y un ambiente soso, y que no sea un hotel de lujo con actitudes arrogantes, este es el lugar perfecto. El hotel impresiona cuando entras al vestíbulo y las habitaciones tienen un diseño impactante sin ser exageradas. Además, no costaba mucho más que el Day's Inn o Holiday Inn típicos, y es mucho, mucho más bonito. Las fotos en el sitio Web son bastante fieles, hasta cuando son de la habitación normal. Nos hospedamos en una habitación con un mural azul claro. Fue muy guay. Me sorprendió que las primeras críticas fueran un poco negativas, porque encontré al personal extremadamente amable. Como se menciona, todavía están trabajando con el hotel, sobre todo en el vestíbulo, pero no interfirió con nuestra estancia en absoluto. Lo raro es el aparcamiento. Tienen aparcamiento interior a una tarifa razonable de 10 euros. Lo interesante es que lo comparten con otro hotel. Aunque no tienes que salir para volver a entrar al vestíbulo, hay que seguir un camino interesante que incluye más de un ascensor, escaleras mecánicas, y muchas vueltas. Tal vez porque éramos chicas en vacaciones de fin de semana, esto fue más gracioso que molesto. Ciertamente me volvería a hospedar aquí, ¡y se lo recomendaría a cualquier persona!

    Love this hotel!


    Spent the night at this hotel during Tulip Festival for a girl's weekend away and we just loved it. If you want something that's a step up from hotels that feature bad artwork, floral comforters and bland atmosphere and yet, not some upscale hotel with haughty attitudes, then this is the perfect place. The hotel has some ummph when you enter the lobby and the rooms have design impact without being overdone. Also, it really wasn't priced that much more then your typical Day's Inn or Holiday Inn......and is much, much nicer. The photos on their website are pretty accurate of even the average room. We stayed in a room with a pale blue sweater mural.....very cool.

    An Amazing Hotel Make-Over


    Used to stay at this property when it was the "Howard Johnson Downtown Ottawa" and Intercontinental has done an amazing job of beautifying the property. While I confess I miss those $69CAD rooms at the HJ, this hotel is well on its way to establishing itself in Ottawa. I find it comparable in style to Arc The Hotel a few blocks over, but with less overwrought stylishness. At the Indigo I never got the "aren't we cool because we work here" vibe that was common at Arc The Hotel.

    Una renovación increíble


    Me solía hospedar en esta propiedad cuando era el Howard Jonson Downtown Ottawa, y el Intercontinental hizo un trabajo increíble embelleciendo la propiedad. Mientras confieso que me hacen falta esas habitaciones de 50 euros en el HJ, este hotel va de camino de establecerse en Ottawa. Lo encuentro comparable al estilo de Arc The Hotel a unas pocas cuadras pero sin menos estilo recargado. En el Indigo, nunca me dio la sensación de, "Somos guay porque trabajamos aquí," lo que era común en Arc The Hotel.

    Still has a ways to go ...


    Could have been so much better ...

    Off to a good start...


    I visit this hotel on a very cold weekend in Feb '07. I had only been open for a week, so there were still some kinks to work out. The staff were very friendly & tried to be as helpful as possible. I arrived 5 hours before check-in, & they manage to accomodate me. However, the business centre wasn't up & running yet, and the heat in my room wouldn't go over 17 degrees (did I mention it was cold). I think with time it will be great. It's beautiful, very close to everything and everyone was willing to make the experience better.
