    The Metcalfe Hotel, Ottawa, Canada
    Not the cute, boutique hotel it markets itself as
    I called ahead to say I would be checking in rather late because of a heavy snowfall that delayed our drive, they kept the worst room for us. I called ahead to check what time the pool closed and they said 10:45pm. When I checked in they said the pool closed at 10pm and whoever told me that from their customer service team was wrong. No apology. There was no wifi provided to me. When I checked into my room, the wall paper was peeling down, there were stains all over the counter tops and coffee stains all over the desk area. I asked if there was any way to move into a different room and they didn’t have any options and when I said did they have a room with a bathtub, the only reason I booked this hotel is because the photos had bath tubs, they said only 4 rooms had tubs and no there was no other option. The view out of the room was of ground level construction. The television barely worked and was set automatically to on demand and took a long time to take it off of on demand, basically they just wanted to get you to buy on demand products. The elevator was all boarded up, and it was no clear when I booked that this place was under construction. This hotel markets itself as a cute urban modern and boutique space; IT IS NOT. I would never book here again; and am VERY disappointed that I was taken for a fool and booked here despite the many better options in Ottawa. It was a waste of money and I’m appalled at the state of the room. All in all, don’t bother.

    I love that it is so close to the Parliament and some of the tourist areas. Getting around was not a problem at all. I would book this hotel again in the future.
