We were JARRED AWAKE EARLY the first morning by this some kind of hammer drill on the concrete floor directly above our bedroom. We let it go since there was a note about the water being turned off for a few hours mid-day so we figured it was a one-time-thing and we decided not to get worked up over it. Then we were JARRED AWAKE THE SECOND MORNING. When I complained, dreary eyed, at the front desk and was assured that the work was complete and that it wouldn't happen again. Then we were JARRED AWAKE ON THE THIRD MORNING. Basically it loud buzzing (hammer drill??) interspersed with hack sawing and bits of metal being dropped on the concrete floor dirctly above. There's jackhammering outside too - not the hotel's fault but you should factor it in when deciding whether you'd like to stay in the area. The management did offer 50% compensation after the fact. However, nobody in there right mind would stay in a room with loud hammer drilling noises over their head - even if it were free. If they think that they can bill half rate for a such accomodation then they should be up-front about it and see if they have any luck attracting guests. I'm rather annoyed that they ruined my sleep time in Ottawa. I'm now so bone tired that I can't even work up the energy to feel irritated. I have to recommend giving this hotel a miss. The canal is closed for skating too so it's not really worth it to be downtown right now in any case.
