Mon 02 Jan 2012
Positives: Although I did lose a piece of apparel while in it, the Manager and most staff were extremely helpful, including parking !!
Negatives: The underground parking was treacherous: a car almost came out as we were entering. Also: lack of vending machines.
Comments: We founder facilities clean and attractive for the price point; well located with most staff extremely helpful. (However, I am pretty sure a brand new hat was picked up and not returned somehow while at counter at night. Manager was very accommodating. Our only reservations would be the safety of the underground parking lot: as on a slippery night, a car came out as we were in the driveway. (Even the button machine was not well located. Restaurant was adequate but we did not use it. Free coffee etc would have been nice but. and even vending machines for pop or milk would have been helpful rather than going outside. However, we certainly appreciated the price point and the over all atmosphere. And as to parking, last year we stayed at the same time across the way and paid 30 more for room and 20 for parking; safety more the concern.

Positives: Good location if you want to be somewhere quiet.
Negatives: Bed was uncomfortable, heater casing was broken.
Comments: It was a good stay. nothing to be excited about. If I were to go back to Ottawa, I would probably venture off to another hotel, but I would not be disappointed if I were to stay there again. Okay location, about a 10-15 minute walk to the downtown area.
Mon 30 May 2011
Positives: Great location, friendly staff, and clean.
Negatives: Expensive parking, sleep number beds weren't great, need more computers in the lobby.
Comments: The hotel itself isn't huge, which, when traveling with a child is a good thing. The rooms are nice, the staff is friendly, and the hotel seems clean. They were doing renovations and upgrades when we stayed there, but other than slow elevators 'which is out of their control', this was a nice place to stay. My only real complaints is over-priced parking, and the sleep number beds are not user friendly. However, I would go back as I enjoyed my stay.
Thu 25 Nov 2010

Comments: Very easy to find, and all the staff from the front desk to the cleaning staff were extremely friendly and welcoming. We had a great experience and look forward to going back. We would recommend this hotel to everyone.

Tue 16 Nov 2010
Positives: Great sleep comfort beds, modern and clean rooms!
Negatives: Parking was expensive.
Comments: Great, clean and modern rooms. Beds were new and were adjustable in terms of firmness.
Wed 27 Oct 2010
Positives: Comfortable bed and quiet room.
Negatives: Parking was expensive.
Comments: The Radisson is a good basic hotel with nice, clean and comfortable rooms. Parking in downtown Ottawa is at a premium and the hotel charged $18 per night for guests which I think is a bit high. The machines in the exercise room require a bit of maintenance (pins were missing from the universal gym and a treadmill mat needed adjusting).
Mon 02 Aug 2010
Positives: Exactly what was promised.
Negatives: The $20.00 parking fee. Got in late and had no other choice.
Comments: This hotel was very clean and met our expectations. Staff were helpful, especially the concierge in the morning.

Fri 19 Mar 2010
Positives: The room was clean.
Negatives: No pool, outdated facility. Parking $21 a day extra.
Comments: Not a good hotel if you are traveling with children. No pool and sports room had worn out equipment. Internet did not work in room and place looks like it could use a face lift. Parking is about $21 a day extra. Exercise room felt like a sauna.
Wed 24 Feb 2010

Sun 06 Dec 2009

Tue 24 Nov 2009
Positives: Excellent location.
Negatives: Room seemed dark.
Comments: Good hotel for the price.
Sat 26 Sep 2009
Positives: Decent price and convenient location.
Negatives: Surprise about parking rate with cheaper parking across the street.
Comments: Almost on the edge of all of the sights and a block from the underground walkway. If you were going in winter it would be better to go a couple of blocks closer to parliment.
Tue 09 Jun 2009
Positives: The location is great and it is a nice safe property.
Negatives: We had some minor plumming issues but no big deal.
Comments: I have stayed at this property and always an excellent value. The parking is $13.00 plus tax but so is any other hotel downtown or more. The capitol buildings are a short walk away as well as the downtown marketplace. The restaurant is pretty good for a hotel restaurant and the web access is nice for free in the lobby.
Wed 11 Jul 2007
Positives: Hotel was clean and with in walking distance to restaurants.
Negatives: I requested 2 double beds through the hotel and was given one and a roll away. Room was too small for roll away.
Comments: Hotel was clean and comfortable. Could walk to mall and restaurants. Whirlpool was not working which was a small inconvenience and the room was too small to accommodate 3 people.
Thu 22 Mar 2007
Positives: The hotel had a great location to get to things in downtown Ottawa.
Negatives: The room was very small and the restaurant was terrible.
Comments: A good location, but not worth the price especially when they make you pay for parking in the garage downstairs. People are nice, but the restaurant is a total. The portions are too small, not well cooked, and much overpriced for such small portions.
Mon 20 Nov 2006
Positives: Beds were nice, and room was clean.
Negatives: No pool, hot tub was under repair, gym was in another hotel room?
Comments: I was disappointed for several reasons. It was as if in the mind of the hotel these guests got a deal so we will give them the room across from the elevator beside the housekeeping utility closet. It was noisy all night and we didn't get a good night sleep. We couldn't check ourselves out and we were told it was because we booked on line. We probably wouldn't have gotten put beside a broom closet and across from the elevator either. The restaurant in the hotel was Mexican. Not my first choice. We ate dinner and had to send it back and then had breakfast there and had to send it back (hair in the food) needless to say, we didn't go back a third time. Disappointing experience overall.
Sun 01 Oct 2006
Positives: Clean, modern, good location.
Negatives: Small rooms, expensive restaurant, abrupt restaurant staff.
Comments: Indefinable a hotel for the overnight business traveler, NOT for families especially with children, they are frowned upon by other business guests. Elevators not working 2 of the 3 days, had to walk down 5 flights of stairs with a disabled person, no help at desk. Restaurant staff abrupt and it is very expensive and food not good. Wouldn't stay at this hotel again.
Thu 21 Sep 2006
Positives: It's convenience to the center of Ottawa.
Negatives: The food.
Comments: This hotel is good to stay on a budget price. There is virtually no bar or good food. It is near downtown and all restaurants. It is quiet.
Mon 04 Sep 2006
Positives: Good location.
Negatives: Business center contained only one computer, nothing else.
Comments: Nice. Good location.
Fri 01 Sep 2006
Positives: Good location. Great room.
Negatives: Small lobby.
Comments: Hotel is located downtown near the St. Patrick Basilica. It has a nice restaurant downstairs. The rooms are very comfortable with the new mattresses and free Internet access quite comfortable lodging all in all.
Wed 30 Aug 2006
Positives: Good location, friendly staff, and most impressive-complementary Internet service.
Negatives: Parking could be difficult.
Comments: It has great location. The staff there are extremely friendly and helpful. The best feature about this four star hotel is they providing complementary Internet services. We are told they are going to upgrade their Ethernet services into wireless (hope it will still be complementary).
Wed 30 Aug 2006
Positives: The hotel is better than I expected. the price and location was too good.
Negatives: Parking, double bed for couple.
Comments: The hotel met my expectations the staff was too nice and cooperative. I liked the Internet-ready-Computer at lobby. I didn't like the room with double bed allocated for a couple. I requested king size bed, but there were no rooms available with king size bed. overall my stay was pleasant.
Mon 28 Aug 2006
Positives: Great location, helpful staff & clean.
Negatives: Hallways could be cleaner.
Comments: Great stay, reasonable walking distance to all attractions and underground parking. Staff were excellent.
Sun 27 Aug 2006
Positives: Close to everything.
Negatives: Room were very small. Dinning was a little disappointing for dinner but breakfast was great.
Comments: Close to all the sites and walking distance is easy to activities and dinning. Didn't like the fact that we had to pay for parking while at the hotel. $13 a day was a lot and we hadn't budgeted this into our plans. The canal and market area were wonderful to stroll along and the shopping was really great. The war museum was top notch and worth the money along with the Aviation museum.
Tue 22 Aug 2006
Negatives: Needs renovation--dirty and old.
Comments: The chair needs to be changed. The room was narrow.
Thu 17 Aug 2006
Positives: staff were extremely friendly and helpful
Negatives: parking was terrible
Comments: Location wasn't great - about 15 minutes from the main tourist areas. Room was small, but clean. Staff were friendly and helpful. Parking was terrible - spots were TINY. DO NOT drive here.
Mon 14 Aug 2006
Positives: The staff was very friendly, and there were some good restaurants nearby.
Negatives: The AC/heater fan was noisy.
Comments: Good value, clean, friendly staff.
Tue 08 Aug 2006
Positives: It was central to downtown Ottawa.
Negatives: Parking was difficult.
Comments: Easy to find. It met all of my expectations for an overnight stay in Ottawa. The parking garage was a bit difficult to get in and out of. I would stay there again if in Ottawa.
Mon 07 Aug 2006
Positives: Very convenient to downtown attractions a person could stay a week and have plenty to do within walking distance.
Comments: Good location. Nice room with desk and easy chair with ottoman and reading light. Internet access in lobby if you didn't bring your computer and wireless available if you did.
Fri 04 Aug 2006
Positives: The rooms were adequate and clean. The beds were good.
Negatives: The restaurant was outdated and limited menu.
Comments: We had two rooms at the Radisson and found it to be a good hotel for the price we paid. It is a very basic hotel. No bellman, no room service, a limited restaurant. The rooms are fine, but not anything to write home about. The bathrooms were adequate, maybe could use some remodeling. The hotel was clean and in a quiet area, though it's not really near Parliament (3/4 blocks away). There were some good restaurants in the area. I would stay here again if I got a really good price ($50.00) but I think there are better choices in Ottawa.
