Ottawa Accommodation - Albert at Bay Suite Hotel

I booked this accommodation with Hotels.com 2 months back and although the hotel got very good reviews all over, I wasn't really quite sure what to expect.

Frankly, this hotel, and actually the room they gave us, was such a pleasant surprise. Not only did it come with the standard double bedrooms, it had its own kitchen, lounge and dinette area as well. It had a microwave, an oven, pots and pans, plates and other kitchen utensils. You'd think we were staying there for a good few months. I suppose now I wish we had extended. We didn't really expect the room to be so big, but certainly appreciated the space.

The hotel was close enough to some of the major sights, including the Parliament Buildings.

The only downside of this hotel that I must point out, since it had been mentioned on reviews a few times and we experienced it first hand, is that there are car parking issues. The hotel had its own underground parking, which was situated around the corner. But it was full when we arrived at the hotel. We were advised by the hotel staff to park across the hotel, on the street. This is of course a chance event. If there is space, you get parking, if not, well then... We were lucky that we arrived on the weekend and street parking was free until Monday morning.

Other than the parking issue, I highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Ottawa. Check out their website here.
