4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We were delighted with the furnishings, upkeep, and spaciousness of the place. We had got it on a special rate, and found that our one-bedroom suite was among the top suites! An added bonus was the breakfast. A feature was the chef's preparation of bacon/cheese/egg sandwiches grilled and brought to the table. There were plenty of comfy chairs at the... More

My wife and I have seen the Business Inn in Ottawa on numerous occasions since it is just around the corner from where our son lives. We've stayed at a number of other hotels in the area because it is very close to everything. This was our first stay at the Business Inn and it will not be our last.... More

On this trip to Ottawa I decided to give The Business Inn a try. I must admit that this decision was influenced by the reviews that I read in advance on Trip Advisor. I have stayed at a couple of other hotels in Ottawa in the past (and those stays were terrific) but they can get to be expensive, and... More

We had a great experience at The Business Inn. The staff were friendly and helpful. They went out of their way to be accommodating when I made an error with my reservation. The rooms were very clean and everything worked. The bed was extremely comfortable and the suite well appointed. The free breakfast was done very well with lots of... More

We stayed at The Business Inn for one night. Since it was once an apartment building, the rooms are large and equipped with a kitchen. The hotel is located in the downtown core which makes it easy for walking to the major attractions in Ottawa. I would definitely recommend the hotel because of its location and the comfortable beds. The... More

I was in Ottawa for some time and stayed here. They have a long stay rate that was really very good and the amenities were fine even without that price break. The front desk folks and cleaning staff and maintenance were very easy to work with and they had a terrific attitude when dealing with the small things that needed... More
