    I went there with no expectations, but left me wanting to go back. I don't think I'll stay anywhere else in Ottawa now, after this place. Comfortable, private, and very convenient. The only thing was the parking was kind of tight going down and up, but very easy to get to from your room.

    Suites at Business Inn are ideal for a business traveller. Excellent location! I had a basic suite and my suite included a full desktop computer with internet and with sound amplifiers and a printer with paper (amenities totally unexpected). In addition to that, I had very fast free wi-fi that allowed me to work remotely. Suite was very spacious with... More

    The chamber maids were nice. Although my boyfriend and I came back early as in mid afternoon and the 'manager' looked at us like a deer in headlights. We went to our room and a younger maid was there and she received a text moments later. It's a tad suspicious. He was the one who checked us in and attempted... More

    Had the executive suite. Recommend for couple with one or two children all the amenities a small apartment so if you want to bring your own food you can. However great location with plenty of restaurants around just a short walk from all the sights (Parliment, Canal... Etc)

    Clean, spacious room. Friendly staff. Offer underground or outside parking. Good breakfast. If you want to order in, there is a pizza menu from"Mclaren Pizza" posted on the door. Being in the hotel room felt like being in your own little house. Clean appliances. Clean and modern cabinets which were filled with you basic needs like cups, glasses and plates.... More

    This place measured up to the reviews on TripAdvisor to a tee. We had a lot of stuff with us as we planned to eat in and we were in Ottawa to skate on the Canal. The rooms were a good size and even though it's an open room it didn't look like we had junk everywhere. The windows were... More

    This was one of the most enjoyable hotel stays I've ever experienced. Bright, brand new, beautifully clean mini suite.
