Cartier Place Suite Hotel – A Review

Due to a late night event I recently stayed at the Cartier Place Suite Hotel located just off Elgin Street in downtown Ottawa. The hotel is a great place to stay if you plan on staying in the city for a few days because not only does it offer spacious rooms, but the suites have a living area complete with a couch and coffee table, and they also have a fully equipped kitchen that is perfect for cooking your own meals.

Some of the rooms have been updated, but the room I stayed in was not, however it was still very clean and extremely quiet, which are two things I look for in a hotel – especially when travelling with a young child. The bed was very comfortable and I think the mattress and bedding must be relatively new because it was in like-new condition. The pool and hot tub areas are also very clean and inviting, which makes this hotel a great choice for families.

The Cartier Place Suite Hotel is  not a luxury hotel, but for the price you definitely get your money’s worth and you are within walking distance of most of Ottawa’s popular tourist destinations, including the National Art’s Centre, Rideau Shopping Centre, the Byward Market and Parliament Hill.

What’s more is that because this hotel is so close to Elgin Street and its vast selection of pubs and restaurants, visitors get to experience some great food and atmosphere right outside their hotel door! And if you decide to eat in, a lot of the rooms have balconies allowing for some fresh air and great views of the downtown area.

The staff at the hotel is very friendly and I overheard the front desk staff going out of their way to help two women who had never been to Ottawa decide where to visit first (they decided on the War Memorial). I had no problems with my room or parking (although I advise being careful when parking in their underground parking garage, as the ceiling is made very low by low-hanging pipes, which are thankfully brightly coloured).

If you are coming to visit Ottawa or even live there already, take a look at what Cartier Place Site Hotel has to offer. They have some great deals (including one for the upcoming Tulip Festival) and the hotel offers great value for your money. You won’t be disappointed in your room – it may not be contemporary looking, but it will be quiet, clean and comfortable! Suite dreams!
