Our room 214 was dirty and air conditioning was on as we entered after checking in. Sooo cold!!! Our window was broken so it did not shut properly leaving us cold throughout the night We were staying at the hotel for a function so we were barely in the room but definitely worth $280 per night. Very very disappointing

This was my family’s favourite hotel stay. We had a larger suite with a beautiful view of Parliament. The common spaces in the hotel were lovely and the kids enjoyed looking at the Karsh photos on display and using the pool. Our floor was very quiet and the blackout shades made it easy to sleep. The location could not be better. We walked to museums and restaurants and shopping.
