Only one vending machine on the six floor. I tried it. It didn’t work. Was told to walk several blocks to Circle K.

Extremely convenient to reach sites

Short distance to many popular sites. Do NOT recommend the breakfast company attached. But everything else was very pleasurable and recommended.

Do not stay here!

I have traveled a lot and been to many hotels and this has easily been the worst. I would classify it as a motel rather than hotel... The place was filthy, there wasn't a safe or mini fridge and it smelt extremely moldy. There was also a $100 deposit that was required (even though I'd already pre-paid my entire stay) which was not mentioned until I was checking in, and they would ONLY take credit for the deposit. I will definitely NOT be using this hotel ever again and would NOT recommend it to anyone.

We are very sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stay. All of our guest rooms are thoroughly cleaned and checked prior to the next arrival; however if a guest is ever dissatisfied with the room they have been given, we do ask that they let our Front Desk staff know immediately so that any issue can be rectified right away, as we want to ensure that all of our guests have a comfortable and enjoyable stay. We do have guest rooms that can be booked that will have a kitchenette (includes a mini-fridge), which we suggest is requested at the time the reservation is made. For the $100 deposit you've mentioned, we do follow the standard hotel practice that a deposit be given for any potential incidentals that may be incurred during a stay; and accept only valid credit cards as a form of deposit (not cash or pre-paid cards). This ensures that any extra costs, such as parking, long distance charges, pet fees, room charges etc are covered, and provides guests with an efficient checkout. Any unused amount is released immediately by the hotel, and is allocated back to the card; the turnaround time in which the released funds are then available is based solely on the specific credit card provider. We do thank you for providing your feedback to us, which has been shared with all of the department managers within the hotel, and are sorry to hear that you have chosen not to stay with us again.

Basic hotel, perfect location

Pros: Location
Cons: New flooring, paint, decor and mattresses.
Location: Perfect location for downtown activities, and other activities are accessible by bus stop across the street (or next block for east bound activities)
Perfect location for downtown and bus stop, but new carpet, fresh paint, mattress and decor suggested. Could be a 5 star with minimal investment.

Would expect more from a downtown hotel

The room was small and not very comfortable. They offer internet access, but it was aweful. Don't plan to get any work done from this hotel if you require internet access. Bed was hard as a rock.

Upscale and consistently pet-friendly in the heart of Ottawa.

Pros: large dog friendly
Parking Upon arrival you'll find parking is located through the narrow tunnel. Parking is limited, and the cost adds notably to the total of staying at the Capital Hill Hotel. Desk Staff The hotel desk staff is friendly, prompt, and courteous. Rooms The rooms have always been clean, and the beds consistently comfortable and allowing for a great night's sleep. The rooms do look in need of updating, but I have yet to find a better consistent value in the heart of Ottawa.

Great location

Wonderful and friendly reception. great location and spacious suite. A little on the well worn side and beds are hard. Good if you have a bad back. Wake-up call never came

Nice location.... but

This hotel is at Metcalf and Albert. It is indeed in the heart of one of the business districts, and of many government buildings, both of which give the neighborhood a buzz all day long. There is a Starbucks and Second Cup within 1 block. A pretty well stocked pharmacy/convenience store within 1 block in the variety food court. Staff very friendly and helpful. A very young bunch. In-room internet access costs approx $8 Cad daily. Free wi-fi in the hotel lobby, which is where I went. Lots of comfortable chairs for just that purpose in the lobby. The parking valet guys were very nice. In and out for once price of $12 daily. They keep your keys (not uncommon in european hotels in the country) so that they mack jockey around the cars for the best fit in a limited space. But, bring your own toilettries. Soap was not very good. Ours from home was much better. The room was certainly big enough but was very rough around the edges for our taste. A little peeling wallpaper here, a little damage there, and pretty soon the room starts looking pretty rough. However, it did appear to be mostly clean, if rough Would probably stay here again based on the location, if only the room weren't quite so rustic.

capitol hill suites

hotel staff not efficient or helpful (for example, could not make a recommendation where to eat, or give directions how to get to a convenience store); the promised muffins/bagel breakfast did not exist; restaurant had limited hours and there were no close convenience stores--so it wasn't overly family friendly. close to the canal, but we appeared to be more in the business district so very closed up at night. It seemed like it would be better suited to business travelers.
