Verified Reviews of Novotel Ottawa

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Enjoyable Stay"

27-Oct-2019 Verified Review, stayed from Tue Oct 22 to Thu Oct 24 2019 at a C$202.59 average nightly rate.
"Very Good."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
The room and service was excellent. The only complaint I have is the parking. I believe you should cover the cost with Indigo. I can understand that being downtown is convenient for us but if you want to attract more customers offer free or some discount. Thank you, Mark Wechsler Room 223.

"Great for group stays."
Overall Score5.0/ 5
Our group had a great meeting experience at the Novotel. The location was ideal and food was wonderful and the staff were very helpful. I wish there was a pop and snack machine for after the restaurant closes, but otherwise, we had a wonderful stay. Would book here again.

Overall Score5.0/ 5

Property Description

Novotel Ottawa is a trendy full-service 4-star hotel set in the heart of downtown Ottawa. Located just steps to the Byward Market and the Rideau Canal, a short walk to the Parliament and across the street from the Rideau Shopping Centre- the leading shopping destination in the city which holds one of the few Nordstrom stores in Canada. The Novotel Ottawa is perfectly situated across from the Shaw Centre (Ottawa Convention Centre) and a short walk to the University of Ottawa.

Green Sustainability

Novotel signed a partnership agreement in July 2007 with Green Globe, the international environmental certification program for responsible travel and tourism. It is to this end that the Novotel Hotels in Montreal and Ottawa partnered with Brome-Missisquoi MRC. In 2009, the hotels launched a project aimed at fighting blue-green algae by planting vegetation along the banks of the Yamaska River. It is by committing to planting one tree for every reservation made on the Internet sites of these two hotels, that we are proud to announce that nearly 200,000 trees have been planted resulting in an improved environment including better quality of the drinking water for the residents of Brome-Missisquoi MRC. Novotel Montreal Centre and Novotel Ottawa are proud to contribute in this way to the protection of the environment for future generations.
