For those who would like to stay in a centrally located area near a high concentration of restaurants, boutiques, and bars, look for a hotel in the neighborhood known as Byward Market, such as the Hotel Novotel.
If you’re not planning to use a car while in Ottawa, consider staying in a pedestrian-friendly area, such as Sparks Street. Alt Hotel Ottawa is a great option in this area.

Pro " The staff was accommodating and understanding "
Con " DO NOT PARK in the multi level parking lot next to the hotel as recommended. My car was broken into with a propane tank! The security guard who works there told me that this happens often as there is no one working there during the night to patrol the area and there are NO SURVEILLANCE CAMERAS on the cars only in the stairwell. Very misleading. No one helped me with this terrible problem. I had to have my car sent back to Montreal as I was unable to drive it and rent a car to return home. Very costly experience which could have been avoided had I not parked there. The guard showed me multiple photos of others cars that were vandalized there during the week. The police said that it does happen often. Be careful when parking. "
