Service is amazing. The room was very confortable and clean. You will want to go back to this hotel over and over again. The food at the Norca restaurant is also first class. Location is also perfect as the hotel is close to the Rideau Center Mall and Byward Market. So everything is at walking distance.

Great place. Spectacular customer service by all staff from front desk, bar, restaurant to housekeeping. Central location with easy walk to everything. Comfy bed and quiet rooms. I especially liked the filtered water dispenser on every floor. Definitely we’d stay again

Very comfortable,very chic, conveniently located deluxe hotel in the national capital. Rooms are spacious and well appointed. I come to Ottawa often but this was the first time at this hotel , and I will likely stay here again next time. My only complaint is that I forgot to pack a toothbrush and the hotel didn’t have a complimentary one for me. They also do not provide bottled water in the room which is a little annoying given the price of the room. All in all though , fantastic hotel

Hello Richard, Thank you very much for taking the time to leave us a review, we receive any and all feedback from our guests with enthusiasm, as it helps us understand what we can do better. We try to always have dental kits available for our guests, I apologize if we couldn't provide one for you, furthermore, part of being a more environment friendly hotel, we have removed all single use plastic bottle from the room - instead we have provided our guests with a carafe and cup in the rooms. The mentioned carafe can be filled out in the foyer of each guestroom floor with mineral water. By practising this endeavour, reduces our carbon footprint as an organisation. However, we do understand the reality that sometimes we need a water bottle to take it with us, that's why we do have complimentary water bottles available upon request at the front desk to take it with you! I hope this information helps you enjoy our hotel and its facilities better. We look forward to welcoming you back. Thanks, Kunwar.

I am a frequent business traveller to Ottawa and the quiet, calm and intimate ambience of the Le Germaine is my “go to” place in downtown Ottawa… a short walk down the hill to the Shaw Centre and the Senate of Canada and Parliament Hill just beyond… the management and staff consistently go out of their way to make sure I am comfortable and go more than the extra mile to accommodate my stay and needs… all with a smile… the hotel opened in 2018 and the expertly crafted rooms have a modern style with appreciated touches including a cozy chaise, writing desk, adjustable under-tile heating and motorized full-window black-out blinds for deep sleeps in the very comfortable duvet-covered bed… and the view!… the rain-shower style shower head is a refreshing way to start the day… there are ample network, 5v USB A charger and 120v AC power connections all around the room and nearby the bed… even panel mounted HDMI connectors to feed your own streaming video and music directly into the large-screen display… unpack your laptop and iPad, connect into the excellent house wi-fi, make a coffee and settle in… the in-house Norca restaurant has a modest yet diverse menu of great meals that is open until 10:00pm and you feel welcome to stay to enjoy your late meal in peace without any sense of being rushed out… a gem for a business writer like me who often eats late… come and enjoy!!

Great service and friendly people. We stayed as a family of 4. The concierge was kind enough to allow us to stay in our room past checkout time as we had a late flight. Also the hotel was new. Good location. Near the byward market. Food at the restaurant was fine I guess. But the wait staff were very friendly.

Arriving Ottawa late on a shill and dark evening it felt so nice walking into Le Germain`s lobby. We got first class service and an upgrade. The room was modern and spacious. We had late dinner at the hotel with a nice and knowledgeable waitress. The food and wine was good as well.

By far, the best Le Germain in the country (and I have stayed at Toronto, Montreal, Quebec and Charlevoix). The hotel is spotless and the staff go out of their way to make guests feel welcome. They are so attentive and a model for all - the staff sincerely made my business visit. The rooms are spacious and clean, with excellent views.

When checking in, members of staff told us it was a great place to work, that’s always a good sign. This was our first, but not our last experience at the Le Germain. Strategically placed for shopping and browsing the Byward market, this hotels offers a 5 star experience. Staff is welcoming and the decor is very modern and sleek. Still, rooms feel cozy and spacious. The bed is super comfortable and the shutout blinds are a luxurious feel. We had a corner room (1205) and the view was amazing! Turn down service with teapot, cups and camomille tea was a really nice touch. High end products for toiletries. Our only critic was that the room was a little dusty (even a few cob webs behind the curtains). A complementary bottle of water would have been appreciated also. All in all, this is a great choice when visiting Ottawa. We will surely go back.

This hotel was absolutely perfect. I stayed here with my six-year-old daughter on a three day trip to Ottawa to see a concert. It was the first time that we had been to Ottawa. The hotel was closed. Everything we did a lot of walking. The end room amenities were perfect and the room had a great view. The bed was the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in my daughter absolutely loved it. The smell in the hotel was beautiful and I have never seen such a well cleaned hotel . The staff were always super friendly and helpful. We had the best time and will definitely be back.

5/5 nicely appointed room, nice touch with music upon entry. Subtle and minimalist finishings. Radio playing jazz upon entry made it welcoming and homey. We stayed here for 2 nights Aug long weekend. Been here several times for visits to Ottawa. Attentive and friendly greeting by staff who valeted car. Porter help to room which had one king and sofa. Lots of room and overlooked south over gallery terrace, 10th floor. We were given accessible room which was not requested, but suited just fine. Actually, it was nice to have the seat in the shower and just be able to walk into shower without having to climb over. Bathroom had fabric curtain and nice wide doors. Nice touches with LED lights which add mood lighting to room. Also enjoy the adjustable reading light bedside. Had breakfast buffet at Norca. It was Delicious and had a fresh, tasty selection of hot foods- eggs, French toast, bacon, eggs, pastries, cookies, cereals, charcuterie, fruit, yogurts and condiments. First time trying it and highly recommend when visiting. I believe it was $25 plus tax and well worth it! It was just the right size nothing too big that you know everything was fresh and carefully put out and attended to by staff. Tasty drip coffee which was a bonus to start my morning. Recommend this before starting the day. Sat by the window in elegant modern furnishings. A nice, calming, classy space. Will try the happy hour and dinner at norca on our next visit!
