We really enjoyed our stay at The Business Inn & Suites. The staff was very friendly, the location was great, the breakfast was just what we wanted and the room was very comfortable. Only a noisy air conditioner was the only problem in an otherwise perfect stay.

We did some reviews of various hotels and finally decided on The Business Inn. We planned a trip to Ottawa for 3 days, and were interested in staying some place near the majority of attractions. The Business Inn is located in an ideal spot on MacLaren with walking distance to most museums and pubs and ByWard Market. There is plenty... More

This hotel has excellent rooms, large with great facilities, very clean and is well appointed for seeing the city and finding somewhere to eat for dinner. The breakfast had good choice but the eating area was a bit like sitting in a school canteen. The staff were pleasant and helpful.

This hotel has it all. Great rooms with complete kitchens, updated electronics including a computer and printer!, and a hot breakfast bar that surpassed most included hotel breakfasts that I have seen in ages! The location is ideal for an Downtown Ottawa visitor as one can walk to parliament, the canal, The Rideau Centre, Sparks Street, and they have indoor... More
