I booked my room almost a month ahead. and every thing confirmed. At the time of checkin, they asked, if dont work for any govt organization, need to pay additional $10 per night, which is surprise to me, and could not take any decision, except agreeing to their terms and conditions. Other than that, every thing else was good.

I have stayed at this hotel twice now. Each time it has been a good experience: - the prices are fair - the hotel is in a good location - the breakfast is nice. One negative is that I have stayed in on suite that had a door adjacent to another room... I could hear discussions through the gap under... More

We got an apartment for 1 night and were blown away when we walked in. Been travelling for a few weeks and this was by far the biggest apartment we'd stayed in. Biggest TV I've ever seen, fully equipped kitchen, dining table, the lot. Only criticism is the rubbish water pressure in the shower, but for 1 night it didn't... More

I stay here every time I travel to Ottawa. The value for price is unmatched. I always book a signature suite with balcony if available. They actually keep track of your room preferences, so when I call to book, I just give them my name and they already know what type of room I want. The rooms are large and... More

I travel on business a fair bit, and I try to keep costs down by staying at mid-level hotels whenever feasible. I booked my stay at the Business Inn on booking.com at a surprisingly affordable rate. I expected a regular mid-level room, somewhat out of the way from the core of the city, a little dated...the usual. When I arrived... More

The location is great, walking distance to downtown (bars, restaurants, Parliament, etc.). The room was a big, big apartment, with a king size bed, full kitchen, sofas, dinner table,a huge flat screen tv and desktop with a very good pc. Quick and easy access to internet. It was such a huge and comfortable room that we wanted to stay more... More

I have stayed here numerous times over the years. sometimes my visits have been two weeks long and others have been a whole month in length. I have found it fantastic every single time. Conveniently located, fully equipped kitchen, comfortable, friendly staff.

We loved this hotel. We stayed here because of TripAdvisor reviews, booked it, and when we arrived, were upgraded to a 4-room suite on the 11th floor! It was wonderful! A couple of things wouldn't work right away, but they sent up a technician immediately and he fixed everything. The bed was delightful, and the overall clean factor extremely high.... More
