First, this is not a 5-start hotel. It seems to be former apartments turned into a hotel. With that you receive a room with a fridge, stove, microwave, etc., a big bed, and a lot of space. There is also a gym which at quick glance is better than many major hotel chains (even has a flat bench). What you... More

Stayed at this hotel while in Ottawa to see a Redblacks game. What a great hotel! Great staff at the front desk, parking underground, spacious, clean suite with all amenities and a very comfortable bed. Within walking distance of Lansdowne stadium and loads of pubs, restaurants and shopping close by. Even though we only stayed one night it would be... More

We were attending a wedding in Ottawa, booked 2 rooms....happened to be the very same weekend of a huge Memorial service scheduled at Parliament Hill....all hotels in the city were full......we found the Business Inn and no one had heard of it. All to say, it was a great experience and definitely would book again. It was close to downtown... More

Absolutely no complaints at all about this hotel. Well located, good breakfast and very comfortable rooms. Staff were friendly too. Free self service laundry on site. Nice area about a 10 min walk from downtown, but still close to lots of eateries.

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

Was really surprised by the size of my room. It was clean, tidy and it had everything in it that I possible could need and more! The location was excellent too, esoecially if you fancy a bite or drink. Definetly stay here again if I'm back in Canada.

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
