Our room was very spacious even the kitchen, it was great that the price included breakfast and if you wanted to have something different you have many choices in the area. The hotel is close to a lot of places within walking distance. I found all the staff very pleasant. There is also a laundry room which is free to... More

The suite was great spacious with decent sized kitchenette. Huge TV and comfy leather couch. Desk with computer and printer. Only negative, is that breakfast could be improved. It would be good to book the room without breakfast as there are lots of choice around. Great location. Will stay there again

From start to finish this was a fantastic hotel. We received a friendly welcome at the front desk and every time we went in or out of the hotel the staff were very pleasant. The suite was enormous with every amenity provided. The continental breakfast was very good, even had a Nespresso machine for "posh coffee". Right in the centre... More

I stayed here for one night and found it to be a very nice hotel in a great location. My room was huge. It came with a full size kitchen, large living room and large bedroom with a king size bed. I would guess this was an apartment building at one time due to the layout of my room. There... More

Stayed here for 5 nights and pretty much only have good things to say. After two days of travelling from Australia this was the perfect place to settle for a few days. The most comfortable bed, a beautiful view from my room on the 12th floor and a satisfying breakfast (including takeaway snack bag). Perfect area too. I personally like... More

I just spent a night here, but I had a great time! I ended up asking to switch rooms because of being placed beside the elevator. At first the person I was speaking with said that the hotel was sold out for the night, but he was then able to search around and switched rooms for me! I was very... More

The Business Inn and Suites at McLaren and Elgin in Ottawa is just simply convenient and spacious.

A wonderful breakfast room on the third floor has a breakfast sandwich and coffee ready to start your day. Service in... More

We stayed 4 nights at the business inn at the end of September and this hotel would have gotten a 4 star rating if it wasn't for them forgetting to clean our room during one of the nights and when we informed front desk in the afternoon they said that it would be done tomorrow. Expected more on this front.... More

We chose this hotel based on other reviews and on the list of amenities—huge rooms, fully equipped kitchen, computer and printer in the room, on-site parking (for a small fee), full breakfast and take-away snack bags (fruit, granola bars, cookies, water). Considering the low price, it seemed too good to be true, but it wasn't. The staff were all very... More
