4.0 Mediocre
I have stayed here in the past and had great service. Maybe it was the weekend and the staff were overwhelmed. Not my most memorable trip
9.7 Wonderful
Cons:Softer pillow please.
6.2 Okay
Pros:easy to book hotel room
Cons:high price for outdated room, staff could be friendlier, ugly view from our window
9.1 Wonderful
Pros:The Novotel was close to the Parliment Hill, Byward Market and Shopping.
Cons:The road construction made access to the hotel difficult. The traffic noise was also very loud on the third floor on a Saturday night.
5.4 Fair
Pros:Location was great.
Cons:When we arrived the room had an odour. The staff came and sprayed with air freshener. We were not offered another room. Later in our stay when we turned on the air conditioner in the corner of the unit on the smell of dog and urine wafted out. When I asked if pets had been housed in the room I was told pets were allowed in all the rooms. If you do not want a room used for pets this is not your choice
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Location was amazing! Staff very friendly, room clean and comfortable.
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Great lobby restaurant. Different twist on flavour with friendly staff
7.1 Good
Pros:The hotel restaurant was excellent.
Cons:The view from the room was depressing. The first one they offered looked upon a parking lot, the next one, which was the only other possibility, upon a construction site filled with debris. The reception desk personnel did not speak French. The bar decoration was not at all like the one posted on Kayak.
8.0 Very good
Pros:It was okay..
Cons:I expected it to look a bit newer than it was.
8.2 Very good
Pros:Cleanliness, staff, location was fine since I like to walk. The pool was nice.
Cons:Parking price was not listed. Cost $23/day! No mention of that in the add. Also breakfast was a straight $19/person. Too much!
