Our room was on the mid floor in the Marriott Ottawa downtown Since it’s in Dow town i had a not so good experience with a downtown Holiday Inn hotel in Montreal(night noises) it got me worried that i would not get so much sleep. But when entering the Room i noticed that had isolated the room very good and i could almost hear not noise from the street. It should buy and bring a decibel meter to Dow town hotels. I was amazed by how big the room was i booked for a double with queen beds for 2 persons.
And i have to say it was the Marriott Downtown in Ottawa was my best Hotel in my road trip across Canada.
The bed was perfect for me, just in between softness and giving a good back support. I never had a bed that slept so good. This could also have due to the fact that I slept terrible the night before and had driven a lot of Kilometers.
The light bulb you can see emitted a warm and welcoming light but it also doubled as a wall socket and the Alarm Clock had a USB port in it. These are just some of the small things which have such a nice impact and you really appreciate.
Although they offered water it was really unclear if you had to pay for it or pay for it when you wanted more water. So this could be a minor suggestion to them. The ice bucket was nicely made but we had to go a floor to get some ice. i am not sure why our floor did not have a an Ice Machine.
On of the nice small things they offered is if you stay longer than 1 night and choose to not let them change your clothes they offer you the Choice of getting a $5 Dollar Starbucks gift card or getting 500 Marriott Reward Points. I really love the fact the they not only think about the environment but also offer you an extra advantage. Although im not sure this is in every Marriott Hotel or just in the Marriott’s in Ottawa.
Also they offered Breakfast in the Room Service which had approximately the same price as going doing to the restaurant and eating your breakfast there.
They offered a wide range of products which where reasonably price according to a Hotel
It always nice to see some Bathroom products it lets you think how much a Hotel Chain cares about you. Marriott offered us a nice choice of Thann products. It consisted of (From left to right ) an aromatherapy conditioner next some shampoo. Then in the middle we got a rice bran oil soap bar with orange and tangerine scents followed by Aromatic Wood Body lotion and to finish another Aromatherapy Shampoo.
