I had to stay in Ottawa for five weeks for medical treatment, all but three days of it in a hotel. I chose Business Inn after researching it and I'm glad I did. It has all the essentials and then some - a printer wired to the internet! Full kitchen. Free laundry room. Well-equipped fitness room. The breakfast room is miles above the usual facility of that name, having fresh cut fruit salad, good coffee, fresh baked goods, yogurt, and hot egg sandwiches with choice of hot meat. With a city block are at least a dozen cafes, restaurants, bistros and bakeries. There is a fabulous grocery store just down the street, Bousheys, with terrific produce and take-home cooking from many ethnic cuisines.
When my medical stay turned from five weeks to who-knows, the hotel staff became protective of me, from the housekeepers who would refrain from vacuuming at my request, to the housemen who once again set my TV remote to rights, to the front desk, who passed through familiar visitors but announced new ones, never getting it wrong.
Okay, the furniture is outdated, and the wifi sucks. Bring a favourite bedspread and pillow cushion or two, and one of those blue cables to wire your pet computer to the wall, if possible. Because otherwise the place is perfect for a long stay during convalescence, and at an extremely reasonable price.
