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

My hotel experience was perfect. Comfortable beds, excellent sleep quality. Nice, helpful staff. Big TV with all possible sports channels. Free and good laundry room. Good breakfast. Fast and reliable WiFi. I stayed in a good room with a printer and a PC. This hotel is as good as it can be for a business traveller. Even the location is... 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

Clean rooms with an awesome tv..the kitchenette was an unexpected but welcome surprise. Allows you to stock up for those munchies. But the muffins at breakfast were definitely stale, although the other choices available made up for the oversight.great location as one can get to the museum of nature, and the parliament hill easily on foot. We even walked back... More

No-one can argue that The Business Inn isn't great value for money! The suites are huge and very well priced. Deal sweeteners are: free fast wifi, free breakfast and free laundry facilities with detergent provided. Suites are nicely kitted out with 2 large sofas, 2 large TVs (one in the lounge and one in the bedroom) and a separate work... More

Booked this hotel at the last minute for a quick business trip to Ottawa. This place is very clean and the rooms quite spacious. There is a full kitchen in each room which for one night we did not use but would be useful for an extended stay. Couldn't believe the size of the room for a very reasonable price.... More

We had to take our son to see University of Ottawa, we spent a night at the hotel. Staff was friendly. It all starts at the reception, I find that decides the whole experience. The suites are a fair size, more than adequate for the three of us. There is a balcony which is nice, lots of light and you... More

I and hubby had a fantastic, very comfortable, stress-free stay at The Business Inn. We spent 4 days in this hotel at the 12th floor during my Reading week/march break as I am a college student. The staffs were friendly and helpful. We had a huge balcony overlooking Ottawa's business establishments and skycrapers. Although the room has a vintage ambiance... More
