Recently I stayed at the Swiss Hotel in Ottawa for the first time in many years. I was delighted to find that, although the rooms have been renovated, complete with iPads and docking stations, the warm reception, great breakfast, immaculate rooms and excellent location had not changed a bit in 20 years. This is a small family-run hotel, a short walk from Byward Market, the National Arts Centre and Parliament Hill, with moderate prices. I recommend it highly.
