Double Tree, Gatineau Quebec Review

During my road trip to Quebec, on the way back my friend and I decided to stop in Ottawa on the way home so we could experience something new and have a shorter drive home the next day. We decided to stay in Gatineau at the Double Tree. It looked beautiful on the outside and the rooms were large.
The first word that comes to mind with this room is, underwhelming. Now, this could be because I had just come from a beautiful historic and modern hotel, but this room just had the basics – and there is nothing wrong with that! Over all, the room was clean (minus someone else’s hair clip on the shower rod). The bed was comfortable, and we had fun hanging out in the living room in the evening and having a bedroom to go to later. The french doors are beautiful and allows for natural light to come in. The one bad thing about the room being this spacious is that there was only the one window in the bedroom, leaving the rest of the room pretty dark so we always needed lights on.
Now on to the bathroom. This was my least favourite part of the room. Pro: I love the brand of shower products they had. They are by Crabtree and Evelyn. I had never tried this before, and it was lovely. I want to purchase regular sized shampoo and conditioner of this if I can (Still needing to look into this).
Other than this however, the bathroom was very bland and standard, but points for being clean since that really is the most important aspect.
I’m a huge bath person, so this bath really pales in comparison to the tub I was in the night before!
The bedroom was the best part of the room. The bed was comfortable and the room was bright with a view over the golf course.
We both had a good comfortable sleep here and didn’t want to get up in the morning.
The hotel itself was lovely. The lobby was beautiful and clean, and every staff member we encountered was very friendly and helpful.
This hotel is definitely a great option if you’re coming to the Ottawa area and want to save a bit of money instead of getting a smaller place right downtown for more money. As this is a golf resort, I also recommend it for anyone in the area coming for golf. I personally didn’t try out the golfing here, but I think for the prices here you can’t really go wrong.
