If you are looking for accommodations in Ottawa where you will be steps away from shopping, dining and entertainment, then the Hotel Indigo Ottawa is the choice for you. While it is a traditional style hotel, it does offer amenities that you would expect at a more upscale establishment, such as free high speed Internet. It is in the ideal location for those who are in the city on business and for those who are vacationing in the city, whether it is for a week or a weekend.
You could stay at the Hotel Indigo Ottawa several times during the year and not see the same dcor throughout the hotel each time. The design changes with the seasons so that every time you stay here seems like the first time. The exterior of the building gives no hint of the surprises that are in store for you when you step through the door. The lobby is six stories high with a skylight at the top to let the sky show through. The sight and sound of falling water permeates the usual sounds of the workings of a hotel and gives you a sense of peace and contentment.
The Fitness Center of the Hotel Indigo Ottawa is open all day, every day. It is a very spacious facility where there is a wide variety of equipment for your workout needs. A whirlpool and sauna await to gently take away your aches and pains. The heated swimming pool is very inviting, but it is not open 24 hours a day. If you want to take a swim, you can do so between 6 in the morning and 10 at night.
The theme of nature is one that you will find in the dcor of all the rooms and suites of the Hotel Indigo Ottawa. With oversized pillows on the beds, and rugs covering a portion of the hardwood floor, you will feel as if you are at home in your own bedroom. Each one contains a 32 inch color TV, a glass shower and Aveda toiletries. You have a choice of a king, two queens or two double beds in the standard room type. However, you have much more room in the Executive room where you have a dining area. Suites are quite luxurious with a separate living room and bedroom and a pull out couch in the living room area.
Breakfast, lunch and dinner menus are available at the Phi Bistro and Bar of the Hotel Indigo Ottawa. This restaurant specializes in gourmet meals that match the seasons and serves delicious Starbucks coffee. On Saturday and Sunday of each week it is not open for lunch. However, that doesnt pose a problem for guests who want to get out and about exploring the city and seeing what the many restaurants in the immediate area have to offer.
The Hotel Indigo Ottawa stands in the shadow of the Peace Tower and is only a short distance from the Parliament Buildings. During the summer months, you only have to walk a block from the hotel to reach Confederation Park, which is the setting for many festivals and musical events.
