“Clean, fully-stocked suites, centrally located, GREAT bed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2012

I don't think I have ever stayed in a place with my own COMPUTER AND PRINTER in the room.... Plus not just an iron and ironing board, but a steamer also? And coffee maker, toaster, micro, fridge, full-sized oven, anything you could ever need.

VERY comfortable bed with good selection of pillows. Huge TV screen. The gym is small, but functional. The breakfast room is a little cramped, but there is a lot of variety, and there are "grab and go" packs if you're running late for a meeting.

It is above a very popular pub/restaurant, and right off Elgin Street, so anything you could need is in walking range. However, was very quiet. A good night's sleep.

It was a good price, good service, friendly people, strong and steady internet. I was 100% satisfied.

Room Tip: As always - go check out the room first, and usually an upper floor is a better view. I was on the...

I had a huge "executive suite", it had a great lay out and was very clean. I will definitely stay here again. The breakfast room with hot and cold breakfast choices was a great addition. And I couldn't find a betterproce downtown.

We were in Ottawa for the Army run for just two nights and the accomidations were great. If we were staying long then I would say the accomidations were perfect as they provided all the ammenities of home. Great location, huge space. For someone travelling on business on on an extended stay this is great value for your money.

The suite at The Business Inn was spacious; the full kitchen and dining room allowed for meal prep when needed.
The (inclusive) hot breakfast was an added bonus.
Having a computer in the suite was very helpful as were all the staff!
This hotel is close to downtown and within walking distance to the Parliament buildings.

We spent two nights in the Business Inn while visiting friends in Ottawa and doing some sightseeing in the city. We were very pleased with the convenient central location of the Business Inn, which allowed us to walk nearly everywhere. Our room was a suite style, with small kitchenette, bedroom and small living room area. Everything was well maintained and functional. You could hear some noise between the rooms--particularly through the door of "adjoinging" rooms (which ours was). The morning breakfast bar was well stocked and breakfast sandwiches were available. Many folks we saw were stocking up on fruits, yogurts, water and other items for a busy day...a nice feature for travelers. Though named the Business Inn--we would recommend the hotel to vacation travelers like us.

Room Tip: I think a higher room would be better from a street noise perspective. The breakfast area is on th...

We have just spent three weeks touring Ontario and Quebec and this was by far the best hotel we stayed in. The location was good, surrounded by many restaurants and supermarkets. Just a short walk into the city. The rooms are great. Kitchen, free computer, fridge, coffee machine. Rooms are large and airy. GREAT breakfast included in the price. Laundry room, with free washing powder. Friendly staff with good local knowledge. No complaints at all.
Mexican restaurant Pancho Villa very good. Out of the hotel turn left onto the main street, turn left again and a few minutes walk.

Room Tip: The rooms at the back of the hotel may be quieter than those at the front. We also just had a double...

I found this gem a few years ago, I never stay anywhere else.
The rooms all come with a computer/printers, Free WiFi, full kitchen, dining table, nice big flat screen TV with full digital cable service, DVD players, large balconies and very comfortable beds.
you can enjoy a free hot or cold breakfast in the mornings, if you are on the run in the morning they have to go bags.
The location is fantastic! it is a 10 minute walk or a 6 dollar cab ride to the market. 5 mins walk to the Parliament. Lots of great bars and restaurants within walking distance.
The staff is great, they are always super helpful.

I just love this hotel!
