We were accidental tourists due to weather delays and cancellations on our way back home from a cruise. All the Benner family were most helpful and welcoming as we arrived very last minute from the airport with only our carry-ons (lost checked bags -surprise!) and no cold weather clothing. So, armed with jackets provided by Marina we proceeded to explore downtown a bit (Byward Market is awesome)and buy long pants! The location is great, a brisk walk downtown ~20 minutes, on bus route or a very reasonable cab ride. The Laurier room was very comfortable and clean with a beautiful breakfast provided, made our 2 night visit the best of an unfortunate situation!
Thank you to John, Marina, Kevin and Cassie for your kindness and warmth!More
