I stayed at the Business Inn for an extended length of time. While there I found the staff courteous, polite and professional. The free continental breakfast with a large selection was a great way to start to my my day. The rooms are outfitted with all the cooking utensils to make your own meals. Bathroom supplies are replaced weekly or more if you request it. All the rooms come with a computer and printer which came in handy booking flights or staying in touch on Skype. The location is walking distance to most government building if that's where you work. If you need to stay in Ottawa for an extended length of time I would suggest trying the Business Inn.

The hotel was great on all points. I found everything I needed. Laundry, high speed internet, computers with large screen, the room was perfect.
I definitely recommend this hotel to anyone who has the chance to pass by Ottawa.
Stayed 5 nights in February 2013.

Room Tip: 4 floor is excellent, large and sunny. Good heater during winter.

I found the room size exceptional for the cost. Room was always clean and always stocked. The complimentary breakfast was excellent. All Staff, whether at reception, breakfast room or maid and maintainance service, were extremely friendly, polite and attentive to the needs of guests.

Location was excellent, so much available right outside the door and everything I required, was just a short walk away.

I would definitely recommend a stay at The Business Inn. Especially larger groups/families.

Room Tip: The streets can be a bit loud if you are a light sleeper. I was on the sixth floor and only heard t...

Spent three nights in an Executive Suite. The hotel is on the corner of MacLaren St and Elgin St, and has all amenities close by (restaurants, shops, 7/11 etc). Rooms are very large, include a computer + printer, full kitchen and large and comfortable bed. Breakfast is included, and is simple but good. The price is lower than the main hotels in the neighbourhood, making it excellent value.

We spent a night here and were not disappointed. The rooms were clean, the bed was very comfortable and the free breakfast (or healthy snack bag to go) was great. Sure the furniture is a bit outdated but for $119 you can easily walk to the Rideau Canal for some skating or take a stroll down Elgin to the Byward market. (hre is also a fully functional kitchen).

Good hotel located at downtown with easy access to main roads. Very kind services. Many pubs and restaurants in the vicinity. No outstanding ammenity, and quite simple, but the room, kitchen, and bathroom are clean with all essencial equipments, including a PC in the room.
The small gym room will help at snow or rain season. The price is unbeatable. Certainly I will return for a next stay.

I frequently stay here, but was part of a couple of different groups that traveled to Ottawa on 'group'booking' which took me to other suite-style locations within the city....and was VERY glad to get back to this one during my last trip to Ottawa. These units are just about the most comprehensively stocked to make your stay away from home as convenient as possible. Be it the unlimited access to supplies like linens, coffee, soaps, etc. or the paper for your in-room printer or the free laundry facilities (including the detergent), or the complimentary HOT breakfast that Allain prepares for you in the morning, this place has NOT left me needing any staples during my extended stays in Ottawa. And the staff are INCREDIBLE! Friendly, respectful, appreciative, courteous - these folks ROCK (they even accepted a rather large delivery of boxes for me while away during the day and had them brought up to my room before I got back at the end of the day!) You canNOT go wrong staying at the Business Inn, and are NOT likely to find a better suite-style property anywhere in the city of Ottawa!!!!

Room Tip: They do have "Signature suites" which are considerably larger. If you are either travellin...
