Stayed at this hotel on recent trip to Ottawa with my wife and some friends. Came as part of a Porter Escapes package, we selected it due to great location and good reviews. Older style, beautiful, hotel with lots of character. PROS - clean room, super fast check in and check out, great location CONS - we got the upgrade "parkview" room, you can see the park but it isn't the best view / not really worth the upgrade. Still 5 stars though. Also, I forgot my hat in the room when we left. Called customer service and housekeeping was able to locate the hat and mailed it to me. Superb service!

good hotel, art center parking closeby

Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Clean and decent hotel. Restaurants closeby (sushiplace was good) and a short walk to a mall with more restaurants. Can park closeby at the art center. Good beds and amenities. Friendly staff. Would come here again.
