We stayed at the Business in for two nights in July. The location is great...surrounded by restaurants and pubs with patios and you can walk to downtown and the parliament buildings. We stayed in an executive suite. The price was great and the rooms were very large.

The Inn is in a great location, walking distance to everything you'll want to take in as a tourist in Ottawa. The amenities are great, especially the in-room computer/ kitchenette/comfy bed and facility's free laundry and great breakfast options. My only hesitation in giving the property 5 stars is the less than stellar hospitality offered by the front desk staff.... More

We had a great stay at the Business Inn while in Ottawa recently. Bed was super comfortable, room was quiet in spite on being feet away from busy Elgin St. Breakfast was great with good choices. The gym was very functional and equipment selection allowed me to do a complete workout. The have parking for extra fee, that is reasonable,... More

Fairly decent Apartment Hotel with large rooms that can be booked daily, weekly, monthly, etc. I lived there for a year before settling into my home. Friendly Staff and quiet. Located right in the heart of Centretown in downtown Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, this is ideal for visitors and those here in Business, as its location cannot be beat! Attached to... More

I was impressed about everything this hotel had to offer. Clean, large, well-fitted rooms. Comfortable bed. Kitchenette. Breakfast included. Friendly staff. And right at Elgin and MacLaren. We live in Ottawa, and will plan to stay here again when we're out visiting downtown.

We booked a Signature Suite, living room, dining room, full kitchen, separate bedroom, large screen TV's, computer with printer. Breakfast was good and they have "to go" bags with snacks and water for your day out. Convenient location about a 10 minute walk to the Parliament buildings. Great place to stay. Great price. Highly recommended.
