Centrally located with lots of parking, this mall is perhaps slightly better than average. My wife likes Nordstroms and of course Tiffanys, and we both like the Apple Store and the Nespresso Coffee Shop. Its close to Byward Market which is acorss the street so the parking works for shopping there also.

I really like this mall- it is very well maintained and boasts a great variety of stores & the brands it carries include some of the best. It is very conveniently located in downtown Ottawa.

If your looking to kill time this place is smack downtown attached to Shaw center. There are a few upscale stores and great Canadian store called Simon's.

I love the list of shops! This mall had everything I needed. it is clean and safe and located in the downtown core of Ottawa. The layout is kinda awkward so make sure you look at the directory. And there is a SIMON's department store :)

This centrally located mall has lots of shops to choose from. The layout is somewhat confusing as there are half-levels. Also there aren't that many of the electronic directories posted in logical areas. The nice thing about this mall is that it's close to the Byward Market. If you're on a budget & don't want to eat in the pricer... More

Moderrn clean mall located downtown. Bus 12 cost cnd2.75 cash exact coins for seniors and stops at the centre. Pricey similar goods sold in Australia so I did not buy. Winter clothes too warm to wear in Perth. Small A&W root beer is cnd2 did not taste as good as in New York. Could not find money changer.

If disorientation is you thing, go to the Rideau Centre! It's a typical downtown mall containing just about everything you need. Okay, I'm a man and don't expect too much...so draw your own conclusions. Seriously it is a bit of a maze. There is a direct link to the Westin Hotel - not my favourite place to stay, but that's...
